Hallmark for Father's Day, Graduation, and other gift ideas ~ #Review & #Giveaway

Father's day is always around my youngest daughter's birthday.  So in order not to clash with her birthday party with Father's Day weekend we would host her birthday party a week before.  My oldest daughter would be considered "Daddy's little girl" since she is always happy to see him and he spoils her rotten.   Hallmark has so many gift ideas for Father's Day, Graduation, and everyday gift ideas.






FATHER's DAY gift ideas:

Dad's Remote Novelty Gift
Special $9.95 with any purchase (MSRP $14.95)
A gag-gift for the goofy dad who gets control of the remote!  Dad's dream-come-true remote control provides commentary that speaks to his love of sports, food, and family and is sure to make him laugh.
This remote cracks me up.  My daughters enjoy playing with it.  They like to press on the button to hear it speak.

New Love You, Dad
MSRP $11.99
A sweet little book that recognizes all the important things fathers do for their children.  This simple and moving tribute will touch the hearts of dads everywhere  Illustrated with heartwarming National Geographic photography of animal dads and kids, it's the perfect gift for celebrating Father's Day, becoming a new parent or just showing your appreciation.  Hardcover: 96 pages.
It is a cute little book, easy to read, and has great pictures.  A great book that could be added to your book shelve or for your coffee table for your guests could look at.

Love Goes Too Hot/Cold Travel Tumbler
MSRP $14.95
Display your favourite print in the travel mug for a totally unique gift for a grown-up, Reveals: I Love You. Includes 2 Magic Prints inserts and 1 Magic Mitt.

This tumbler could be a great Father's Day gift idea but it could be for any occasion.  I use a tumbler all the time and this one would be extra special since it will have the hand prints of my daughter all over it.  Something to remember them by when they are 3 or 7 years old.  There are two Magic Prints so I get to do one of each of my daughter's hands and alternate them during the year.

Magic Prints Mess-Free Frame
MSRP $16.95
It is easy to use and not messy at all.  It is like the Travel Tumbler but it is in a picture frame.  It is light weight so you can either hang it or stand it on a shelve or table.  It is fun to do and a nice keepsake for any occasion.  It contains a non-toxic solution so it is SAFE for both kids and pets.

Harley-Davidson - Life Doesn't Come With a Road Map Tin Sign
MSRP $14.95
Harley-Davidson - Boxed Coaster Set
MSRP $24.95
For those who has a passion for all things motorcycle and bring the essence of the open road to life with these great gifts.  They are perfect additional to an office or man-cave.
The Tin Sign would be perfect as a decor item for whichever room he likes.  It is not very big and it is light weight so you wont need a professional to hang it up.  This coaster set is perfect for everyday use because no one wants to see their table damaged.  A great gift idea could be a Harley-Davidson - Boxed Coaster Set and a case of beer or a bottle of wine - which ever is his poison.

Darth Vader Cut-out Desk top sentiment
MSRP $19.95
Darth Vader poses with a cut-out of one of his most iconic phrases, bringing the power of the Force to any desk, shelf, or table.

Darth Vader/Chewbacca/Yoda Bottle Opener with Sound
MSRP $14.95
Dad will love cracking open an Impreical Stout - or any other drink of choice-with this Star Wars character bottle opener.  Where he loves listening to Chewbacca's roar, The Imperial March from the voice of Darth Vader, or the Star Wars theme song.  Dad will thank you for reminding him of his favourite movie.

Star Wars theme gift items are back for anyone, especially dads who loves Star Wars.  I know quite a few guys I know who would love to own a few of Hallmark's Star Wars theme products.  They are perfect for those die hard collectors or just the regular Joe who just like Star Wars.  These could be a great Father's Day gift, graduation, birthdays, or even just because.

GRADUATION gift ideas:

One-of-a-Kind Creations 2014 Frame
Special: Save 30% on any Shutterfly Word Cut-Out Frame (Offer Date 05.30-06.15)
MSRP: $24.95
Graduation is a day like no other, so remember the momentous occasion with a one-of-a-kind, customization "2014" die-cut frame, in partnership with Shutterfly, display is an  easy as sliding a printout photo into the frame.

I love these picture frames.  They are different than the usual square ones.  They make the picture more memorable.  Even if the frame says "2014" it could be used for any occasion like a wedding or new born baby or any event happened during "2014" you like to frame.  This will be perfect display on my shelve, desk, or somewhere at the office.

Autograph Owl with Pen
Special: $12.95 (MSRP $16.95)
This fabric owl is the perfect place for family, friends and fellow students to add meaningful messages.  Pass it around at a graduation party or open house to let everyone add a signature, well-wishes or a special memory that the grad will love reading well after the festivities are over.

Accordion Display Board Album
MSRP $12.95
Protect the moments that matter most in this 2014 display board album.  The perfect addition to a coffee table or study, the album allows you to feature your favourite photos and includes a sticker page for customization.

Graduation is one of the times we like to celebrate our achievements.  To me it was like the light at the end of a tunnel.  I spent an additional 8 years after high school to achieve my goal.   I have been to a few graduations over the years and sometimes it also means saying good byes to a few friends whom you may or may not see again.  It would have been nice to at least get their autograph and maybe an email address.  The Owl would been fun and useful to get one last piece of memory of the time you spent together studying for exams or working together on a project.  I could also use the Display Board Album too if The Owl is too small for all the people you want to get autographs from.

Sculpted Sentiments
MSRP $14.95 each
Commemorate the milestone with a sophisticated white porcelain sculpture of a Graduation Cap ("Wear your success proudly", Lock ("Unlock your potential"), Typewriter ("Write your own story"), airplane ("Let your dreams soar"), or Light Bulb ("It's your time to shine").  Featuring motivating words, these meaningful pieces of decor look great on a bookshelf, desk, or bedside table.

They are nice small display pieces and I love the inscription on each of them.  Any grad would love it and the words might inspire them to continue to achieve their dreams and goals.


THE WIZARD of Oz
From the classic movie The Wizard of Oz, Hallmark has a selection of novelty items that's aimed to inspire the "great and powerful" shopper.

Desktop Sentiment
MRSP $14.95
It is a very cute table display for The Wizard of Oz lovers.  This one showcase the most famous line "I have a Feeling we're not in Kansas anymore".  It is perfect to display on shelves, desk, or table.

It is a great time to look at Hallmark this month...and also anytime throughout the year.  They carry so many gift ideas for both kids and adults. I have a feeling someone will be looking into Hallmark's Star Wars Theme products.
