The Beauty in Hallmark’s Back-to-School Collection

hallmark Canada

On Friday, as I was reading through my feed I came across a post from Yee Wittle Things on Hallmark’s back-to-school collection. In the past I used to think of Hallmark as more of a place to buy cards and memorabilia for life’s great moments but my impression has greatly changed in the past year or so.

Hallmark for Back-to-School

Surprises at the door are my favourite and when I got this delivery shortly after threatening to steal Brandi’s. My heart exploded into a million little pieces. I am so grateful that I have to share some of my fave goodies from the bunch. As much as back-to-school is for the kids it seems lately, a lot of older kids are also looking for more fashion-forward pieces and us mom’s need some goodies to keep the household activities organized, our dreams on paper and just some things that make our home (and feet) look pretty. We deserve Hallmark goodies ladies!

Now that school is around the corner that also means that extracurriculars, play dates and pizza days are around the corner. Keep everything written down in one of Hallmark’s organizers. I am head-over-heels in love with these agendas. Whether you are into florals or these whimsy puppies you will be over-joyed with the details of these planners.

To-do lists, shopping lists or just little reminders go hand in hand with these pocket journals. Perfect size to throw in your purse for those on the go thoughts and tasks.


And for when you want to sit down and journal your day’s thoughts these full sized journals will take you from the mundane to inspired.


For days when you are ready to slay why not put on these AH-mazing socks. My two oldest kids have claimed these socks as their own and why not? “D” loves to game and “E” is a magical unicorn-kitty.


This exclamation point plate seems to describe my excitement on this collection to a “T”. Perfect to display and the bright colours are so great. This will be used in my front entryway as a place for hubby to put his keys so we don’t spend 15 mins looking for them everytime we have to leave.


Whether it be quick notes to the kids and hubby or gentle reminders of that nights activities this floral clipboard notepad is a great addition to your home. I think I may use it as a place to remind myself what the kids are grounded for. Not really effective if I can’t remember why they are in their rooms.


These tiny little notecards are perfect for turning an ordinary day into the extraordinary. Put a smile on someone’s face by dropping them a sweet hello or the cute cactus (cacti?) design.


These adorable folders match the WHOLE Hallmark collection and come in a handy pack of 6. Gorgeous <3


Last but not least are these Charlie Brown and Linus cups. They are the perfect size for little hands and come in a pack of two 🙂

    Hallmark always has beautiful journals and it’s always nice to write your thoughts in a really nice book.
