~ CLOSED ~ Must-Haves From the 2016 Hallmark Holidays Collection {w/Giveaway}

The Christmas holidays have always been, by far, my favourite time of the year. The holiday “season”, is aptly named “season” because it’s far more than just a single day. It seems to be the only time of year that we all come together and share a joint purpose. It’s like some unwritten contract we have all have signed, promising to be more charitable, appreciative, tolerant and most of all, nicer to each other.

If you are still out, searching high and low for the perfect gift for that special someone on your shopping list, I have some great suggestions!


Just a few of the great gifts you can find from Hallmarks include:

  • The most adorable and soft SMILING SNOWMAN FLANNEL THROW BLANKET. This cozy blanket is guaranteed to keep you warm through the long, cold winter. MSRP – $24.95
  • The FROSTY FRIENDS SHIVERING POLAR BEAR INTERACTIVE STUFFED ANIMAL is adorable.  Rub noses with this cutie to see him shiver — not from cold but from pure delight. (Requires 3 AA batteries, included.) MSRP – $29.95
  • If you are still in search for STOCKINGS to hang by the chimney with care. With snowflakes, jingle bell decorations and cotton knit fabric.  Or velvet and cotton stockings are the perfect size to fill with candy, small gifts, and trinkets. You will find a great selection to choose from! MSRP 24.95 – $39.95
  • I LOVE the Hallmark ORNAMENTS and this year they have an awesome selection to choose from. Including, itty bittys® Elsa, Coffee Signature, Scottie Dog, itty bittys® Star Wars: the Force Awakens™ BB-8™, a Red Poinsettia Glass Ball Ornament/Heritage collection and so much more!

    The “holidays” here is just one stat day, so we go to the inlaws for supper. Everyone in the house works for a living (the kids are grown up), so there is no longer a holiday period like when you have kids who get 10-12 days off of school. I’m envious of anyone who does get a longer time off (we’re still doing OT at work, still short staffed …5 people called in sick and thers only 20 workers lol..yeah FUN and games)
