Mother’s Day is in just one week! Ack! If you’re like me, and you’ve waited until the last minute to start seriously thinking about gifts for your mother, grandmother, mother in law, aunt, or even your adult children, don’t worry! You still have plenty of time to pick up some thoughtful gifts, many personalized, and gorgeous greeting cards, thanks to Hallmark.
Bonus tidbit: Did you know that this year marks the 100th anniversary of Mother’s Day?
I was sent a pack of cards and a gift to review for this post and was very impressed with the collections they offer this year.
Stay tuned for an exciting giveaway at the end of this post! There will be THREE winners.
Hallmark Mother’s Day Cards
The cards featured above are from the Sarah Jessica Parker collection (left) and the Hallmark Signature Collection (right).
The Sarah Jessica Parker Collection card is stunning. It is stylish and chic (just like you would expect from SJP!), but the message is so sweet and heartwarming, just like you’d expect from Hallmark! Notice the coordinated envelope! It is so much fun, and gives a little hint at the special card inside.
Sarah Jessica Parker Collection: This collection includes 12 Mother’s Day cards created by a stylish mom herself — Sarah Jessica Parker. Parker worked with the Hallmark creative team to pair vintage artwork from the Hallmark archives with modern touches and embellishments, such as tulle, gemstones, and ribbon. The designs feature simple, authentic and heartfelt messages, perfect for your mom and friends. These gorgeous cards are available exclusively in Hallmark Gold Crown stores.
The Hallmark Signature Collection cards I received are textured and dainty. I love ribbon embellishments, and the thoughtful messages. I won’t say who will be getting these from me this year!
Hallmark Signature Collection: Celebrate mom or grandma with a card as unique as she is. With beautiful papers, rich textures and unique embellishments, each card in the Hallmark Signature Collection is handcrafted to be extra special, just like mom. Find this stylish collection in stores only.
How adorable is this Magic Prints card? Your child can magically place their handprint or footprint (or use their fingerprints to make a cute design) right onto the card with the enclosed Crayola Magic Mitt. It’s mess free and turns a card into a real keepsake gift!
Magic Prints: Magic Prints is a line of greeting cards and gifts designed for kids to give mom or grandma a hand (their handprint) without a mess! New card designs for 2014 include Disney® characters, Peanuts® characters, as well as a baby’s footprint format — perfect for first-time moms. These are available in stores only!
Customized Gifts From Hallmark
Hallmark has these new Customly Yours gifts available. The one I got was this really neat frame and stand. It had a special link and code for me to go online and create my own personalized insert for it. There were tons of options, including different colors, saying, and more – and they could be customized depending on what you wanted the message to be!
The custom message was FREE (included in the price of the frame) and shipped for free to me, too! I received it in less than a week. You can also purchase replacement or back-up ones for a reasonable fee if you decide you want to switch things up!
I decided to be a little selfish and create one just for myself. Happy Mother’s Day to ME!
Customly Yours: Customly Yours gifts allow family members to create personal stories about mom or grandma in their own words, perfectly displayed in a frame chosen from Hallmark.com. Creation is as easy as 1, 2, 3: choose a display frame, create a custom project and have it shipped for free! These are available in-store OR online.
