I love this time of year and with sunny days upon us, I can just feel my mood lift and spirits soar. Of course, with spring time also comes babies, graduation, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Which means shopping, shopping and some more shopping. Not that I am complaining, I enjoy checking out Hallmark Canada for unique gift ideas that will please my friends and family.
Here are just a few gift ideas from Hallmark’s spring line.
Thumpin’ Thumper - This little guy thumps his foot and says one of three greetings. He is definitely soft and plushy and a huge kid pleaser. Just $14.95 with the purchase of three Hallmark greeting cards or $24.95.
Mason – Interactive Story Buddy and Mason’s New Friends interactive storybook 2.0. Mason is a love-worn teddy bear who’s been left behind by his previous owner, only to be rediscovered and loved again by his new friend, Jacob. Includes one story buddy, one storybook, one read along audio CD and free access to digital story time. My kids loved this plus little guy. He is unbelievably soft and cuddly and a delight to read along with the children. MSRP $34.95
Blooming Expressions – Fabric petals open to reveal a special message and a glittery butterfly. All are showcased in a beautiful vase and plays a lovely melody. MSRP $24.95 or without music $19.95. These are really lovely and will contemplate any décor. I’ve actually chosen to leave mine open because it’s just so pretty.
Magic Prints – Create a personalized gift with Magic Prints. Mess-free Crayola Magic Solution reveals handprints or footprints from children or pets. The solution only works on Magic Paper and washes up with soap and water. What a great idea and so easy to use. MSRP $24.95
One-of-a-Kind-Creation Frames Mom, Dad, Love. - These are really, really cool. So cool, in fact, that I already hid mine away so that my husband doesn’t see it. At first glance, I wasn’t sure how I would make this work then I saw that I didn’t have to. Shutterfly does all the work by allowing you to customize your digital photo and prints it out to the proper specifications. How cool is that? I’ve used Shutterfly in the past and it’s a great company to order from. Special pricing on the Mom and Dad frame $14.95. Love frame is $24.95
New Pics ‘n’ Props for Mom, Dad, Grandma & Graduation – Tells stories or show your love with photos in a creative new way using Pics ‘n’ Props. Each kit comes with special props and a frame or album to store your memories. This is another great idea. The kit I received was for graduation 2013 and I know a special grad that is going to love this. It’s a big time in a grad’s life so why not remember it with some cool props. Priced from $16.95 – $24.95.
Of course, these are just a few of Hallmark’s spring line. There are many, many other cool gift ideas like beautiful mugs for Mother’s Day and hilarious Star Wars Bottle Openers with sound. For more gift ideas visit Hallmark.ca.
