Making #MothersDay Special #ad #LoveHallmarkCA #myhallmark


Making Mother’s Day a special one can be as simple as a special greetings card.  For years families have relied on Hallmark for those special touches and sentimental words.

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

Hallmark cards and gifts show Mom just how much you care.  Some gifts you can choose from:

  • colourblock tote from Mark & Hall
  • Marjolein Bastin designs (ex. accessory bag, garden bag tea towel, napkin rings)
  • framed prints
  • pretty scarves
  • water bottles
  • books
  • stuffed animals
  • Crafters & Co. Spa selections (ex. comfort wrap, slippers)
  • an assortment of Mother’s Day cards from Hallmark Signature & Wonderfolds

I purposely left out pricing (MSRP) and even the special pricing because I want you to go into your local Hallmark store and see for yourself how wonderful all of these items are.  You have to see and feel/touch to understand the high-quality.

Is it enough to say “but it’s a Hallmark”?  Yes, it always has been enough … that fact is unchanged … but these items seem to stand out even more (to me).  Perhaps it’s the way this package was put together?  All of the items seemed to go together!  Throughout the entire package the colours matched, the theme matched, and every item seemed fresh!

Now, I’m going to do something different this time around!  I’m going to hold a semi-secret giveaway …

It’s almost here; just one more day,

Gather your thoughts and what to say.

Pen to paper, send love on its way …

Sincerely yours, Happy Mother’s Day!

Not everyone can put together words in an eloquent manner … or in an humourous way.  I’m not saying that I can but I did make up that little poem to show you that there are many ways to show the “moms” in your life that you love them.  Hallmark gives you many options, and each of them offers you that certain special something that you are looking for.

Share an extra bit of happiness with Mom with a sweet, thoughtful gift from Hallmark.  It’s sure to be one that she will treasure!Pick from:

  • tote bags
  • scarves
  • photo frames, and/or framed prints
  • mugs
  • cosmetic bags
  • umbrellas
  • candles
  • and so much more!

… tuck it into a beautiful gift bag, and don’t forget to include a Mother’s Day Card.

Even though there’s just one more day of shopping left, there’s no need to panic. Just find your closest store; you’re certain to find the perfect item!
