Hallmark Holiday 2018 – My Top Picks

Being a Hallmark Ambassador for the past few years has been such a treat! The company known for gift-giving ideas regularly ships its ambassadors gorgeous boxes filled with items for seasonable events and the holiday box is my favorite of the year! Hallmark always shares it’s top items, cards, gift bags and wrap and then we get to share them with our loved ones too. Although there’s so much more in store and online, here are my top 5 picks from Hallmark this holiday season that I’d suggest checking out the next time you visit Hallmark!

How sweet is the Jolly Ho-Ho-Holidays Santa Stuffed Doll With Sound (MSRP $24.99). This soft and cuddly stuffed Santa Claus celebrates the anticipation and magic of the holidays. Press the button to hear him say seven different jolly phrases and tuck treats in his attached drawstring bag for everyone on your nice list.

Gorgeous and perfect for gift-giving a keepsake, this Poinsettia Ball Blown Glass Ornament (MSRP $29.99) brings bright winter blossoms to life. To create the beautiful work of art, artist Joanne Eschrich transformed rich watercolor florals into a free-flowing circle design. Artist Jim Kemme then sculpted the brilliant details to highlight the texture of the leaves, and the ornament comes alive in vibrant touches of red, green and ivory. Each original and ornate, blown-glass Hallmark Heritage Ornament is inspired by the art from the Hallmark Archives, interpreted by a Hallmark artist, and then hand-blown and crafted by artisans in Poland. It comes with a gift box making wrapping easy (or use a Hallmark Gift Bag to complete the look!)

Woven Herringbone Throw Blanket, Green (MSRP $29.99). Soft and cozy, this snuggable throw blanket is the perfect addition to the back of a favorite chair so you can wrap yourself up in its warmth on cool evenings. Made from soft, breathable cotton, this woven blanket features a herringbone pattern and tasseled ends for a charming and trendy statement in your home. Available in 3 colors including red and beige.

Peanuts® Woodstock Gingerbread House Christmas Cards, Box of 16 (MSRP $16.99). I love the Peanuts gang, and of course the Peanuts Holiday special on TV every year. Housed in a unique gingerbread house, once the cards are sent away you can keep the box for your own deliveries that arrive.

Mom Holiday Mug (MSRP $15.99) I love my coffee mugs because each one has a special story or event attached to it when I pull it from the cupboard. This durable ceramic white coffee cup features a red dipped-glaze base and a sprinkling of embossed snowflakes.
