GIVEAWAY: Win a $60 Hallmark Moments in Time Gift Pack to make Mother's Day Special - ENDS 5/2 (CLOSED)

Capture that Special Moment for Mother's Day with Hallmark...

As a mom, I know from experience that it is not the cost of a gift that makes Mother's Day great, but the uniqueness of the gift and how much it touches my heart as a mom. I have lots of my son's artwork and special cards from over the years that are as precious to me as gold. So I was very happy to be able to review a special pack of Hallmark gifts and cards that moms and mother figures will love on that special day.

Any mom would love to get recordable framed artwork from their kids
Artwork that Captures a moment in time...
What mom is not in love with their kids' artwork? I don't care about the level of artistic metric of the art piece, if it comes from my kid, it is a masterpiece that I want to keep.

Hallmark understands that kids have drawn pictures for moms for years, but the Hallmark Recordable Artwork Canvas Art Kit takes a Mother’s Day drawing to the next level by capturing a child’s voice and the story behind his or her artwork. Equipped with a canvas panel, Crayola washable paints and a big imagination, kids can paint mom or grandma a masterpiece that is then inserted into a 9”x9” recordable frame. Too cool :)

Kids can record a 40-second special Mother’s Day message into the frame to let mom know the story behind the artwork and how much mom is loved. With the Canvas Art Kit, a mom can play back her child’s voice and experience that special moment this Mother's Day and every year after that.

Recordable Artwork is available at Hallmark Gold Crown stores and anywhere Hallmark products are sold for $14.95.

I love the funny questions in this Conversations to Keep Book
Precious Conversations Captured forever for Moms and Grandmas
Have you ever wished you had a way to capture something silly or precious that your child said? I know one Mother's Day, when asked what was special about mom, my son got up at church and told the entire audience that he liked the way I smelled and way I dressed :)

So Hallmark has created Conversations to Keep Recordable Books filled with open-ended questions that spark imaginative answers from kids. “Mom and Me” and “Grandma and Me” Recordable Books capture those wonderful, creative answers only a kid can give.

Within the book, kids record themselves answering a variety of questions, such as “If you and mom were aliens, what would you look like and what would you name your planet?” Or, “What does Mom do to show she loves you?”

Hallmark Conversations to Keep: Recordable Books give Mom or Grandma a fun and easy way to capture the true personalities of our children so we can always remember that little voice and our time together.

The Conversations to Keep Recordable Books are available at Hallmark Gold Crown stores for $24.95.

Hallmark sent me a variety of Mother's Day Cards to review...
All Kinds of Mother’s Day Cards
One of the main things that I love about Hallmark Mother's Day cards is that they come in all sizes, shapes, price points, designs and wordings. Be it funny, sentimental, over-the-top, simple, laugh-out-load crazy or "get me some tissue" touching, everyone can find a Hallmark card to match the woman you want to honor on Mother's Day.

This year Hallmark is taking Mother’s Day cards to a new level with a variety of innovations, including light and animation, as well as pop-ups with mechanics so complex that a card designer works with a Hallmark paper engineer to design and construct it. With these innovations, people can give a Mother’s Day card that has a thoughtful sentiment and an element of surprise.

Out of three Mother's Day cards that Hallmark sent me for review, my favorite is the pink "I Heart Mom" card that plays the song "Some Kind of Wonderful".  It is too funny and very unexpected.

Hallmark Has it All - big and small - for Mother's Day
So whether you have a dollar or a small fortune to spend, head to your local Hallmark Store to get something special for that special lady for Mother's Day.  From cards to recordable conversations to recordable artwork, Hallmark has something that every mom will love.
