Bring the Holidays To Life with Hallmark | Review


countdown ornament

Christmas is one of my favorite holidays with the family. The decorating, cookie baking, gathering of family, and creating memories that will last a lifetime are what makes this season so special.

Hallmark has put together some products this holiday season to help you Bring the Holidays to Life.

Keepsake ornaments are more than just decorations, they capture memories of your life and create stories that can be shared year after year. The North Pole Countdown Keepsake Ornament is the perfect addition to your tree and to your “story”. My oldest child has been asking day after day “How many more wakeups until Christmas?”. Now with this classic ornament, he can turn the dial to the day of the month and hear a fun radio snip clip that counts down to the Christmas holiday.

Watch this cute commercial to hear how cute this ornament is


north pole storybook

My kids are very much into Santa this year so we read to them “A Visit to the North Pole”. This fun book is an interactive storybook from Hallmark that works by interacting with your child in a fun way, when you read the lines that are colored in red Santa will then respond.

What’s really neat about this book are the responses that your child receives. Santa will ask your child a number of questions throughout the book and the response that is given from Santa will correspond with the answer that your child has given. This gives your child a new experience each and every time they read the book. I love this opportunity to create new memories with my children and seeing their face light up when they hear Santa talk to them.

Memories can be created not only within the home, but with a Hallmark Signature Collection greeting card. The exquisite textures, and designs of these cards would make them perfect to hang on your mantle this holiday season. I particularly enjoyed the snow globe card, when a button is pushed on the card there is snow within the snow globe that begins to blow around just like a real snow globe! The Hallmark Signature Collection is the perfect way to share the spirit of Christmas with your friends and family.

Hallmark is always creating the perfect addition to the holidays to help bring them to life. I hope to bring a little spirit to your holiday with this fun giveaway!
