Today’s post is sponsored by Hallmark Gold Crown, but my love for their [Hallmark Holidays] option is all my own!
We recently saw the Peanuts movie with our kids (one of the few movies they actually sat still for and made it through without any issues). Since then they have been on the lookout for anything Snoopy, Charlie Brown and especially Woodstock. My husband grew up reading Peanuts and was a fan, but even more a part of his life has been the Star Wars movies. He is so excited for the upcoming Star Wars movie, and has told me no less than 30 times how he used to watch the original trilogy straight through when he was younger. We’ve been on the lookout for items associated with both movies. In our recent trip to the mall we were completely wowed by the selection of both in the Hallmark Gold Crown store. Well made, eye-catching items, many of which you won’t find anywhere else.

This visit to Hallmark we picked up a Peanuts ornament for the tree. I was already set on buying it and the fact that it had chocolates inside was icing on the cake. We also picked up some CUBEEZ of Star Wars characters (Chewbacca, C3PO, Darth Vader and Bobba Fett). My husband wants to bring these into the office to display on his desk, but my son has other plans. They are functional too, great for holding items and then stacking them up. In the store I noticed they had CUBEEZ for The Muppets, The Wizard of Oz, and other themes too. We also bought peppermint bark from Crafters & Co. I bought their candles before and they are top-notch, I’m excited to try out this dessert. We also grabbed a couple of cute hot chocolate cups with marshmallows and their own mini eggbeater stirrers. The kids couldn’t pass these up!
For many the name Hallmark is synonymous with cards, gifts and holidays. The Hallmark Gold Crown stores are in most of the best malls across the country, and for years I personally have loved going there as much as any other store to gear up for the holidays. I try not to use the term too often but it really is a one-stop shop for everything holiday. This is THE place to go, whether we need to pick up ornaments and decorations for the home, grab a gift for family, or pick up a unique present for a gift exchange (white elephants are huge at my husband’s work). Once in the store or on the www.hallmark.com website it’s easy to see they have gifts fit for anyone and any home; there aren’t too many stores where we can grab a gift for me, my kids and their grandparents. It’s nice also to be able to tackle the wrapping paper and the card all in one store, too. Too often these days people are vying for the option of a gift-bag that has a tiny square big enough for the “To” and “From” but nothing else. While I do like that convenience I think a card with some choice words from the heart is always a must.
Definitely stop in and take a look at what’s new at Hallmark Gold Crown. From traditional and classy to modern and all-out fun they have a great selection to make this holiday season a memorable one.
