Special Occasions with Hallmark ~ @hallmark_canada #HallmarkPressPause


Spring has sprung and this time of the year, I feel exceptionally giddy! The weather is warmer and everything comes out of slumber. It's also time for Easter, Mother's Day and followed by Father's Day and Graduation time.

Recently, my four year old daughter watched the movie, Bambi.  She fell in love with Bambi's friend, Thumper. Surprisingly, we were sent a Thumpin' Thumper from Hallmark and it is the cutest, most cuddly stuffy she's got! She was so thrilled when she received it!

Thumper thumps his foot and says one of three greetings. He quickly became a favourite with Little One! ($14.95 w/ 3 card purchase. Reg. $24.95)

Hallmark has gift ideas for everyone. I was thinking for Mother's Day, the Blooming Expressions with music would be a great idea for moms!

The fabric petals open and reveal a special message and a glittery butterfly. Each flower is showcased in a beautiful vase. The Blooming Expressions with music sell for $24.95. Flowers without music sell for $19.95.

For dads, the One-of-a-kind Creation Frames are a fabulous idea! New Shutterfly gifts allow customers to customize their digital photos for special and unique gifts. I really love the look of these frames! If you visit our home, you'll know how addicted I am to photo frames and family photos!

Another great gift idea for a special person in your life is Mason Interactive Story Buddy. I was going to keep him for Little One (mainly because I fell in love with him)! Mason is a love-worn bear who has been left behind by his previous owner, only to be rediscovered and loved again by his new friend, Jacob.

Mason is so adorable and so soft! He comes with a storybook and an audio CD. You can get coordinating books for $9.95. The new Mason Interactive Story Buddy & Mason's New Friends Interactive Storybook 2.0 sells for $34.95.

Little One gave Mason to one of her best friends since he loves his stuffed animals.


One of my absolute favourite items from Hallmark are the Magic Prints. Little ones don't stay little long, so I love capturing snippets of my daughter's childhood and keeping them for posterity. These Magic Prints are a great way to create personalized gifts.

Mess-free Crayola Magic Solution reveals handprints or footprints from children or pets. Each applicator-Magic Mitt- comes with enough solution for 2 child-sized handprints. To clean up, wipe solution off and wash with soap and water. Solution only works on Magic Paper and is safe and non-toxic. ($24.95)


This time of the year always reminds me of graduation! After the first signs of Spring, it always seems like Summer's in a rush to come. Kids are ending school for the year and beginning a new chapter in their lives. For many, this means graduation.

This year, our niece is graduating from high school and will be going off to college in the Fall. I thought these Pics 'N' Props were so cool! Tell stories or show your love with photos in a creative way, using Pics 'N' Props. Each kit comes with special props and a frame or album to store your memories. I really wish we had these when I graduated from kindergarten, elementary school, high school, college and university! So fun! I know my niece will love it!


As you can see, Hallmark has so many amazing gift ideas for all the special people and special moments in your life. Great ways to show your love and capture moments and memories.

I really like those gift ideas. I had no idea that there were so many great gifts for all occasions. Hallmark is not just about cards, eh?
