Press Pause with @MyBitsandBleeps and @hallmark_canada Giveaway CAN 30/04/12 8pm EST

If you hadn’t noticed by now, I’m proud to be part of Hallmark’s 2012 Press Pause Panel.

Why did I join them?  I agree with them, we all need to “press pause” and take the time to recognize and celebrate the occasions that make our lives meaningful.  Hallmark is the perfect company to help you do that.  When I was growing up, we knew we are that when you received a Hallmark card, you were receiving the best; in fact, turning the card over to verify that it was a Hallmark card was one of the first things that you would do!

I’m glad to say that many years later (let’s not dwell on how many), Hallmark is still a sign of receiving “the best”.  Hallmark goes further than cards alone; thoughtful, innovative and unique gift ideas will not disappoint you.

Over the next few months (March-May), you’ll come across a few fun Hallmark products that will be perfect for gift giving for Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or any day!  They’re perfect for Spring And Summer.

1) Nugget the Dog Story Buddy with Nuggets First Day of School Storybook MSRP: $29.95
Cuddle up with your child and enjoy the fun as Nugget the Dog comes to life.  Nugget unlocks the magic in each as he responds with sound to different phrases.  Press Nugget’s left ear and begin reading.

2) Squawkin’ Egg Droppin Hen MSRP: $30.95 – or $15.95 with purchase of 3 cards
Mamma Hen squawks and lays her eggs as she sings and dances. *Coordinates with The Egg-cellent Mama Hen Book.

3) Bloomin’ Expressions MSRP $19.95
Say it all with the sunny happiness of a yellow flower.  Press the button and the petals open to reveal just the right words.  Four designs to choose from.

4) Stationary Towers MSRP: $12.95or free with any $25.00 Hallmark purchase (with coupon only)
Customer’s love the Stationary Tower for Mother’s Day.  Stationary Towers include a decorative pen and are beautifully packaged for easy-to-give gifts.  They’re so perfect for teacher appreciation gifts, administrative professionals and more.
