WIN PRIZES! Hallmark Channel Original Premiere of “Love, Lights, Hanukkah!” on Saturday, Dec 12th at 8pm/7c! #CountdowntoChristmas


With the start of Hanukkah and Christmas right around the corner, it’s officially holiday season for quite a lot of us.  This year is a little (OK, a lot) different then other years and past celebrations, since there is so much quarantining and social distancing- not as much gathering as usual. TV and movies have become pretty important around here, more then usual. I’m typically a Christmas movie addict, but this year is a whole new level of addiction! I can’t get enough of them. Thankfully, there are 23 new original movies premiering throughout the Countdown to Christmas– and you can bet I’m watching all of them.

Please feel free to enter the Hallmark Channel’s Very Merry Giveaway Sweepstakes (, SiriusXM’s Christmas music destination, Hallmark Channel Radio; Hallmark Channels’ Bubbly Sesh Podcast; and the Holiday Home Decoration Sweepstakes (

Make sure you watch the Hallmark Channel movie premiere, “Love, Lights, Hanukkah!” on Saturday, Dec. 12th at 8pm/7c.

Hallmark Valentines Day Gifts

If you are like me, you love all things Hallmark. I have a “card addiction”, and like to send them for any and all reasons.  Real, paper cards- I know, I’m so old fashioned and super not hip, ay?  No. It’s fun to get mail that isn’t bills now and again- and they really do make you smile, don’t they?

Hallmark is a great place to shop for all occasions- Valentine’s Day is no exception.  Hallmark is all about showing you love and care, so it’s the perfect place to stop and shop for your loved ones.  No matter whether you are shopping for your wife or girlfriend, mother, grandmother, boyfriend or husband, or even the kids- Hallmark is a good starting point (and who knows, you might be able to do all your shopping in one place!)

Some of the cute new Valentine’s Day gifts they have to offer this year include

  • Hallmark Gold Crown exclusive.
  • She dances and sings:
    I like big hugs and I cannot lie
    Never let a hug pass me by
    You can give high fives or cuddles
    But please don’t lose those hugs
    So gentlemen? (Yeah?)
    Ladies? (Yeah?)
    You wanna drive this hippo crazy? (Oh yeah!)

Getting ready for Christmas? It can be hard to wade through all the noise to find the best Christmas items.  Now that “Black Friday” is over, we can focus on what’s fantastic for the season vs how much can be saved at 3am.  A few of my current favorites are;

North Pole Communicator Microphone- This is super cute and fun for kids, and lets them “talk” with Santa every night before bedtime. Beginning  December 1, get the family together daily and dial up the North Pole to have “real” back-and-forth conversations with the “big man”, elves, and more.  The communicator is quite a lot of fun, will amuse adults as well, really psychs kids up and gets them excited, and and is a great way to get the family involved in a nightly activity.

talk to santa

Hallmark’s Keepsake Ornaments are a tradition for many, and giving a treasured ornament (or building a collection for your children) is something that so many people enjoy doing.   Keepsake Ornaments has a variety of ornaments that commemorate milestones and nurture memories, as well as scenes from your favorites movies, TV shows, or cartoon characters. Our favorite this year is “Lions and Tigers and Bears”, a Wizard of Oz ornament that moves and talks.  All the characters move and speak lines from this scene in the movie.  There is an amazing variety of Keepsake Ornaments, so finding the perfect gift for your child or loved one is easy.

The new interactive storybook “Santa and the Christmas Eve Flight” is adorable and will make bonding over reading with you kids fun for both of you.  Santa responds with questions or choices as you read key words and phrases. how your child answers will shape this story, which can change each time you read it.  There are more then 30 responses from Santa, which makes the possibilities for the storyline pretty diverse.

Hallmark Halloween Decor Review and W!N @HallmarkPR

Happy Halloween boils and ghouls!

How can you throw a wonderful Halloween get together without scaring the pants off your more sensitive, smaller guests as well as adult ones? How about by having Hallmark help with the decorating and Halloween shopping? Hallmark are the greeting card experts and have been for years. Halloween cards are great for any occasion, with bright colors, meaningful words, or and silly phrases. Some cards are even decorations as well, these large cards can open up and be put out for display. Hallmark is also known for their holiday decorations including Christmas, Thanksgiving, and of course Halloween. Their Halloween line is ever-expanding and constantly getting spooky, playful decorations and this year is no different. Here are a few highlights:

My Pet Ghost is a little jar that holds your choice of 3 ghosts, each with their own personalities including Genevieve Ruffles, Julian Hijinks, and Maxwell McSpooky. When the top of the jar is pressed the ghost lights up inside and give you some spooky insight into the ‘life’ of a ghost in a silly fun way. Little Man really liked this little pet, he was endlessly amused by it/her. He took it to his room to scare off any rouge monsters that may creep up in the night. Hey, whatever works.

Another spooky decoration is the new Witch’s Hat Door Decor. The hat hangs on the door and is motion activated. All you have to do is walk in front of it and it [Read more…]
