Hallmark Mother’s Day “Moment in Time” Gift Pack Review and Giveaway

I have trouble every year trying to think of an amazing Mother's Day gift for my mom that shows just how much I love and appreciate her (Yes, Mom, I know you are reading this and I DO Love and Appreciate you!) :) You see, she has eight children ranging from 30 to 13 and I think over the last 30 years she has received almost every gift you can think of. Now, you can see why it is so hard to buy for her...

But that is why I love Hallmark! They always come through for the hard to buy for when it comes to gift giving! They are always coming up with new, meaningful, and memorable gift ideas and I always love to see what each holiday will bring!

This Mother’s Day, Hallmark introduces gifts and cards that give Moms and Grandmas a moment in time — a moment they can hold onto and revisit even when their little ones aren’t so little anymore. I received the amazing Hallmark’s Mother’s Day “Moment in Time” gift pack for review, which includes a variety of gifts and cards that capture a child’s personality and help celebrate moms and mother figures on Mother’s Day and beyond.

Mother’s Day “Moment in Time” Gift Pack includes:
Recordable Artwork: Canvas Art Kit
· Kids have drawn pictures for moms for years, but Hallmark’s Recordable Artwork Canvas Art Kit takes a Mother’s Day drawing to the next level by capturing a child’s voice and the story behind his or her artwork. Equipped with a canvas panel, Crayola washable paints and a big imagination, kids can paint mom or grandma a masterpiece that is then inserted into a 9”x9” recordable frame.
· For a unique and final touch, kids record a 40-second special Mother’s Day message into the frame and share their unique story behind their art. With the Canvas Art Kit, a mom can play back her child’s precious little voice and experience his or her big imagination on Mother’s Day and any day.
· Available at Hallmark Gold Crown stores and anywhere Hallmark products are sold for $14.95.

The Canvas Art Kit from Hallmark is such an amazing idea! I try to always have my son make a craft or drawing for his grandparents since they don't get to see him for Mother's Day...but it never quite captures his personality or his voice! Now they can with the Recordable Artwork! I love that once he is done with his craft, he can add his voice, explain what he made, and tell his grandparents how much he loves them! It can be played over and over and makes such a great keepsake!

Conversations to Keep: Recordable Book
· Filled with open-ended questions that spark imaginative answers, “Mom and Me” and “Grandma and Me” Recordable Books capture the answers only a kid can give.
· Within the book, kids record themselves answering a variety of questions, such as “If you and mom were aliens, what would you look like and what would you name your planet?” Or, “What does Mom do to show she loves you?”
· Conversations to Keep: Recordable Books give Mom or Grandma a fun and easy way to capture the true personalities of her (grand) children so she can always remember that little voice and their time together.
· Available at Hallmark Gold Crown stores for $24.95.

The only other person I know that loves Hallmark Recordable Books more than me is my son! He calls them his "special books" and absolutely loves the ones we received for Christmas and Valentine's Day! When he saw the new Grandma and Me Recordable book that we received, he wouldn't stop asking for it!!  I love that these recordable books are a little different than other Hallmark Recordable books because the parent asks the child questions and the child gets to answer! My son always begs to record in the book and now he gets his chance! Once again, this makes a memorable keepsake for any parent or grandparent! Nothing is cuter than a child's voice and funny answers!

Mother’s Day Greetings 
Hallmark is taking Mother’s Day cards to a new level with a variety of innovations, including light and animation, as well as pop-ups with mechanics so complex that a card designer works with a Hallmark paper engineer to design and construct it.

With these innovations, you can give a Mother’s Day card that has a thoughtful sentiment and an element of surprise – a card mom will want to hold onto for years to come. These cards are so fun and different! I love that I get to give a unique and fun card to my mom this year - instead of the boring traditional ones I usually give!

Overall, Hallmark has come through for me again this Mother's Day! My family has so many great gifts to give to all the special mothers in our life and I can't wait to see their smile, laugh, or even a little tear as they cherish these gifts forever!

Buy It: You can purchase all these great Hallmark gift ideas at your local Hallmark Gold Crown Store!
