Holiday Joy: Hallmark Canada Bringing the Must-Haves

Holiday Joy: Hallmark Canada Bringing the  Must-Haves

Well I finally did it, I got in the Christmas spirit. The tree is up, the decor is out and damn it we are picking up some ingredients to make some cookies tomorrow if it is the last thing I do. All it took was a delivery from my favourite holiday brand, Hallmark. The joy was contagious and I even enlisted the kids to decorate the tree. It may not be Pinterest-worthy but they were going to redecorate it daily until it comes down anyways 😉

Hallmark Canada Bringing the Holiday Joy

I have said it before and I will keep saying it because it is true, Hallmark has its place in every holiday, every occasion, and even in your home decor. If you are ever in their store’s grabbing cards I HIGHLY recommend also grabbing some of their candles because they smell great and they even have cute travel tins for when you are on the go.

That being said there are so much holiday goodies in the stores right now you are sure to pick up a few.

Looking for that little bit extra to your gift wrap then look no further than Hallmark . Between their tissue paper to make peeking impossible, these Preppy Multi Pattern Gift Tags ($4.99), and these Cute Snowmen Honeycomb Characters Bow Gift Attachments ($4.99) that when opened make the snowman’s tummy nice and round. Cute right?

If you are anything like me you are going to omit the wrapping paper and head straight to the gift bags ($7.99). Time is precious and if I can quickly put my gifts in  AND make them look festive it’s a clear winner for me. Who wouldn’t want a bottle of wine gifted in this great “Cheers” bag?

Can’t be giving out gifts without also attaching a card. No matter the holiday Hallmark has you covered. From the regular to the ornate you can pick and choose to suit not only your own style but also the receivers style. My fave? I am in love with those Wonder-Folds White Christmas Tree Christmas Cards ($19.99). They are such a joy to give and receive.

This Peanuts Holidays Through the Year Book is the perfect accompaniment for some classic Charlie Brown and the gang through the year. Follow the fun from Valentines to Chrismas and at $14.95 this hard-cover book is a great investment for story-time around the tree.

Cue the cuteness alert with the itty bittys® Frosty the Snowman™ Stuffed Animal and Storybook set. The classic story retold along with a cute little Frosty plush will only run you $6.95.

Listen if you are going to be covering your toes already because sandel season has come and gone and these adorable Holiday Candy Toe-of-a-Kind  pair. Great gift for the favourite toes in your life at $12.95 a pair.

Probably the most exciting things this week for most of my kids was the arrival of some fun new ornaments. Like this Scottie Dog Ornament Shaped Memo Pad that will appeal to the dog lover for just $7.95.

Or maybe you have a Frozen fan in your house and this itty bittys® Elsa ornament ($6.95) will be the highlight of the tree. In all honesty, this ornament has spent more time in my daughter’s hands then on the tree these past few days. 

Hallmark Canada

 Maybe Frozen is just not your thing and you prefer the itty bitties® Star Wars: The Force Awakens™ BB-8™ ornament ($6.95) instead. Either way, you will love the quality and the fact that they are thus far surviving the kids. 

Hallmark Canada

For the love of coffee, or in my case my Bulletproof Coffee, this porcelain Coffee Signature ornament is my jam. It even has an adorable knit cozy sleeve and the kids know to stay away from this one just like my real coffee. It can be yours for just $16.95.

The level of detail in this Red Poinsettia Glass Ball Ornament/Heritage Collection ($24.95) is astounding. I was originally going to pack it away and keep it hidden until my kids grew up and moved out but instead opted to put it near the top of the tree to prevent accidental breakage.

Hallmark Canada

Deck the halls with boughs of holly and the fireplace with this beautiful stocking ($24.95-$39.95). Just the right size and with beautiful attention to detail they are the perfect addition to any mantle.

Hallmark Canada

Show up with this Guest Towel and Basket Set ($16.95)for a hostess gift or buy it for your own home. Either way the beautifully packaged wire basket and paper towel set are a great addition to any home. 

Hallmark Canada

We are not Jewish but I can appreciate the simple elegance of this Hannukah Menorah ($29.95).

Hallmark Canada

One of my favourite items in the collection is this Reindeer Carryall Tote Bag ($24.95). It can hold gifts, winter necessities like hats and gloves, and even this warm and cozy Smiling Snowman Flannel Throw Blanket ($24.95) featuring a smiling snowman, a cardinal and a fox in a snowy forest. Big plus is that it is soo thick and cozy it will be perfect to keep warm on cold winter nights. Pure joy.

Hallmark Canada

  Let these Snowflake Candle Holders ($19.95) make the ambience of your home as festive as can be.  Pair it with a thick pillar candle and enjoy the warm glow and shadows as they flicker in the night.

Hallmark Canada

Last but not least is this Frosty Friends Shivering Polar Bear Interactive Stuffed Animal ($29.95). If you rub his nose he giggles and shivers and ours has almost no face left because our youngest won’t put him down. He has had a wet face from kisses since we got him.

    Hallmark always has things that range from cute gift to lovely keepsake and sometimes heirlooms. You can see the thought and quality that goes into their products.
