Holiday Items for Everyone at Hallmark + GIVEAWAY! #HallmarkPressPause



I'm the kind of person who loves to send out greeting cards for all occasions.  Though in the past few years, I've been trying to be more of a "Save a tree and e-mail me" kind of person, I have to admit that I am a sucker for the handwritten word.  To be honest, though I spend much of my time working online, I believe old-fashioned letter writing is a dying art.  A card and a few handwritten thoughts to let loved ones know they are loved and appreciated are key for me. 

During the holidays, we send out Christmas cards to family members and friends. We send anywhere from 150 to 200 cards, and with stamps being pretty expensive, Hubby has convinced me to scale down on the number of greetings we send out. We're now standing at 75 to 100. 

What cards do we send? Hallmark, of course! Ever since I was a kid, it's always been Hallmark.  There are a few things I never skimp on. Toilet paper, ketchup, and greeting cards.

Even before I became a #HallmarkPressPause panel member, it was always Hallmark for this girl.  My Mom taught me the a well-chosen card makes a huge difference in letting people know how much you care. A card is not just a card. It's the love, sentiment, and feeling the card conveys.

As a member of the #HallmarkPressPausePanel, I get to share with you some of the amazing items Hallmark has to offer during the holidays. Oh, they're not just about cards! Hallmark has everything from cards to talking/recordable books (read a book and record yourself reading for a loved one so  they can hear  your voice whenever they want!), Christmas ornaments, stuffed animals, interactive toys, photo albums, picture frames, and more!
Last year, Little One received Jingle (the fluffy puppy that barksand interacts when he hears certain words and phrases in the story book that he comes with.  This year, Little One will be surprised to find Bell (the girl version of Jingle!) under the Christmas tree!
The Wireless Children's Angel Choir:
This singing angel choir has got to be my absolute favourite items this year! These adorable choir members sing solo or together. When they sing together, it is so beautiful! We received these two, who are part of a collection of four. We may just have to get the other two angels since Little One just loves them and wants a quartet!
See (and listen!) for yourself! Here's a video of Little One admiring the angel choir!


Another favourite is the Dancing Lights Holiday Frame.  We just may be sharing this one with one of Little One's grandparents!

I love all of Hallmark's inspired gifts. One of my old time favs is the Snoopy stuffy that "sneaks" a kiss under the mistletoe. Adorable!
