Holiday Gift Guide: A Hallmark Holiday

Wednesday, November 13, 2013


As a member of the Hallmark Canada Press Pause Panel, I have the good fortune of sampling Hallmark's newest products and their holiday must-haves are the ones I look forward to the most. There is always something inside our holiday package that puts a small on my face and a twinkle in my kids' eyes. Last year, one of our favourite products was the Hallmark Wireless Children's Angel Choir. We loved each of the individual angels that we ended up buying several of them as gifts for friends, family and co-workers. This year, Hallmark has added some really cute holiday items to their shelves. For Disney fans, they will love the Totally Ticklish Goofy featured above. Tickle Goofy at any point while he sings a parody of "Up on the Rooftop" and he'll start giggling like mad. This toy retails for $29.95 but if you buy three Hallmark cards, you can buy it a special price of $15.95. For the teacher on your list, check out this cute 'Blink-Along' Musical Scarf:

'Blink-Along' Musical Scarf - $24.95 (or $14.95 with any purchase)

Come on! Doesn't it just scream 'teacher'? I am totally wearing this at work, I don't care how much it clashes with my wardrobe. The scarf plays a combination of holiday songs while lights flash along to the music. It's perfect for impromptu caroling en français, n'est-ce pas? And, do you remember that Hallmark Family Tree Frame Holder I wrote about a couple of years ago? Well, it has become a permanent feature in our home and this year I have decorated it with these 'Let it Snowmen' Mini Snowmen Ornaments:

'Let it Snowmen' 5-piece Mini Snowman Ornament Set - $14.95 (or $6.95 with purchase of 3 cards)
It makes for a cute little gift set and the kids think the snowmen are so cute. Check this out: if you participate in the Hallmark Rewards program, you can get it for FREE with any $35 purchase!



If loud toys are more your thing, you are probably my brother. He always jokes that the louder the toy, the better the gift. That was before he became a daddy. Now that he has a one-year-old, I know exactly what to get her: a Yule-K-Lele! You can play six holiday songs and the faster you strum, the faster the song will play. And the sooner moms and dads will likely check in to an insane asylum.

Yule-K-Lele - $24.95 on special for $19.95

Finally, if you recall the Pics 'n' Props Halloween Activity Kit, the kids and I had a lot of fun with it. Now we can have just as much fun with the Christmas Fun Kit. You can use the photo props, masks and holiday backdrops for your family holiday photo or set up a photo booth at the next holiday bash. Kids both young and old will be sure to have fun with this kit.

Pics 'n' Props Christmas Fun Kit - $24.95 (or $14.95 via Hallmark Rewards)
