Valentine’s Day gifts come in all shapes and sizes. When searching for gifts for family and friends, I have found that a perfect place to go is to Hallmark. Hallmark has seen many a Valentine’s Day come and go, and has, throughout the years, amassed a wide array of collectibles and gifts for every age group. The phrase “something for everyone” comes to mind when I think of Hallmark products.
Among the many choices of Hallmark gifts are the adorable, the stunning, the emotional, and the humorous. Hallmark’s Pink Eyeglass Case is a fun gift for young girls and women alike, in addition to providing a functional service. It is certainly a conversation piece that draws attention when removed from a purse or tote. The outside is faux leather, in pink, with a leopard print interior. Adorable!
Hallmark’s Marble Wristlet Purse comes in a soft marble print of pink and green. It is just the right size when you don’t want to carry a large purse or bag, but still need to keep some personal items close by.
The Lightbulb Bottle Stopper is a perfect gift for the wine enthusiast! It does a great job of closing up a bottle of wine, and adds a little humor with a light bulb shaped stopper and a heart shaped filament inside. It’s a great little gift to give alongside a favorite bottle of wine. Or…it can be given as a compliment to Hallmark’s Cheers To Us Stemless Wine glasses. These wine glasses (yes, without stems) are both cute and funny, each bearing its own message, “let the good times flow” and “I’ll clink to that!”. And…they are dishwasher safe! Somebody pinch me!
Coasters are very useful, and are always a great idea. Hallmark’s Cork Coasters come in ceramic holder that keeps each coaster safe and out of the way when not being used.
Cork itself is growing in popularity and is being included in the manufacture of many different products. These coasters are great furniture savers and will protect the surfaces of your table tops for years to come. A great gift for Valentine’s Day or even a perfect housewarming gift or stocking stuffer.
The Lips Mirror Compact by Hallmark is another gift that falls into the “adorable” category. This portable compact case is a typical mirror on one side, and on the inside of the compact is a magnifying mirror. Just right for one of those close-up inspections! Both are incredibly handy and are sold in a cute little gift box.
What desk couldn’t use a paperweight? Hallmark has created an Apple Paperweight in metallic gold. This is a great gift for a co-worker’s desk or for a teacher on Valentine’s Day or any time of year.
Valentine’s Day is so exciting for the kids! They just love to hand out Valentines to the whole class, the teacher, the gym teacher, the music teacher, the lunch lady, and the school bus driver! What better way to cover this vast territory of recipients than to use Hallmark’s Valentines Emoticons Tray? This set includes 32 Valentine cards, 35 emoticon stickers, and one card for the teacher. (Okay, well, maybe not for the gym teacher, the music teacher, the lunch lady, or the school bus driver. Perhaps next year!)
A journal is always a perfect gift for a friend or loved one. Hallmark’s Color Blocked Cork Journal is a blank canvas of 160 pages just waiting to be filled with thoughts, ideas, and lists. There is probably enough room among those pages for some well-kept secrets too!
Love On White Tissue adds a pretty accent to a gift box or gift bag. It is always a good idea to keep a stash of tissue paper on hand for gift giving, and this design is especially right for Valentine’s Day. White tissue paper with the word “love” written throughout. Six sheets come in each package. And speaking of gift wrapping, it’s always fun to add a little extra pizzazz to your gift wrapped creations. Red and White Spiral Tissue by Hallmark makes wrapping just that much more fun.
I love gifts bags. There is so much that can be done with them to dress them up and make them fun for the recipient of the hidden gift. The Signature Marble Medium Bag by Hallmark is so attractive that it just begs for a place of its own out where it can be seen and admired. The bag is composed of paper graining and foil and its handle is metal. Hallmark’s Signature XOXO Small Bag is another creative way to wrap your Valentine’s Day gifts. Hallmark gift bags are a fun way to show friends and family how much you care.
Hallmark Greeting Cards have always been among my favorites to share for birthdays and holidays. They always share moving messages that speak right from the volumes of my heart. Hallmark Canada continues to offer a growing variety of cards filled with color and love.
