Hallmark Cards Review & Giveaway
I love Hallmark Cards. I am so impressed by the many themes they carry! I remember shopping for Hallmark cards with my parents when I was younger. I loved looking at the different cards they offered! I also love them as an adult. I was excited to receive some great cards from Hallmark.
I received some musical cards, which are great because when you open them up, music plays, or you can personalize it by recording a message. My kids love the musical cards, as do I!
I also received some cards from a new line by Hallmark called “Edge of Motherhood.” I was very impressed by these! As moms, there are moments we experience that can only be fully appreciated by other moms. To help encourage one another through the day-to-day challenges of motherhood, as well as give a few laughs along the way, Hallmark has come out with this new line of humor cards.
A recent national survey commissioned by Hallmark revealed two-thirds of moms say they handle the imperfect moments of motherhood by sharing funny stories with other moms about their experiences, and that 8 in 10 moms turn to each other for candid, empathetic, and unapologetic support and reassurance that “we are all in this together.” Ideally, these new, edgy humor cards will help moms share a laugh, connect with one another and celebrate motherhood — and they start at just 99 cents.
For kids, Hallmark’s new collection of encouragement cards for kids are designed to help parents provide an extra boost of confidence for kids as they experience “everyday” moments – whether it’s the first day of school, taking a test or trying out for a team. The cards incorporate humor and heartfelt messages to help adults show support, pride and give a special child a boost of confidence. (Some of the cards include originally recorded sound clips too, which play when a child opens the card!) These cards start at 99 cents, and the encouragement cards with sound retail for $2.99.
Both collections of cards are available at select Hallmark Gold Crown stores and other retailers where Hallmark cards are sold. And some styles of the “Edge of Motherhood” cards are available online – full collection is only in stores.
