Mother’s Day will be here in less than two weeks! I’m still trying to wrap my brain around that! Finding the perfect gift for moms and grandmas can become difficult after years of gift-giving. What else can you possibly give your mom that you haven’t already!
Hallmark always seems to come up with the answer with their new heartfelt gifts. This year, start off with one of Hallmark’s animated, light up or pop-up Mother’s Day Greetings card – I love this sparkly pop-up bouquet created by one of Hallmark’s skilled paper engineers!
Or, go for silly! This little girl is too cute and I love the heartfelt sentiment written on the front —“Mom, you made me the person I am today!”, lol! Hallmark has come up with some really wonderful ways to bring a little something extra to your gift-giving. With the Recordable Art Canvas and Recordable Story Books, you can create a special keepsake that will delight family members for years to come.
The Recordable Artwork canvas art kit includes Crayola washable paints, a paint brush and a pre-framed 9″x9″ canvas that holds a secret inside! Once your child has created their painted masterpiece, they can record a special greeting for Mom or Grandma by pressing the button. Each canvas can hold up to 40 seconds of recording, just right to tell the story behind their special painting! This will be one piece of art that mom will want to hang on the wall instead of the refrigerator!
I think the recordable artwork canvas is a great gift idea for many ages (3 and up). Even my eleven year old had fun creating a special piece.
Hallmark also has available these adorable Conversations to Keep: Recordable Books! There are ones for Mothers, Fathers, Grandparents and more. “Mom and Me” and “Grandma and Me” would be perfect for this upcoming Mother’s Day. Each book is filled with open-ended questions to ask your child. For example these are just a few questions in “Mom and Me” — “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?“. Each page has its own button to start the recording and each button will hold up to 75 seconds of recording!
This would be especially nice for Grandparents who live farther away as they’ll be able to hear their little grandchildren’s voices whenever they want! I think it will make a beautiful keepsake that will be fun to pull out year after year as your child grows! Hallmark always has such a variety of gift items, I love to find that perfect sentimental card for my Mom while shopping there!
