I don’t know about you, but I love sending Christmas cards and receiving them too! I just love to see what personal touches someone puts on a card, or the thoughtfulness they took to pick it out.

It always takes me forever to select the cards I want to send each year because I want them to be just right! Do I include a picture, or just do a picture card? What type of card to I get? This year, Hallmark has made it so easy for me with their signature collection of cards. These are truly premium cards that are just beautiful, and there is a perfect card for each person on your list.

For my sister, I will be sending this wonderful card that truly tells her how much I care about her and will miss seeing her this year (she will not be joining us for Christmas this year). (As always, click any images to view larger)

For my mom, truer words could not be spoken than those printed on this card. In addition to the the card itself being beautiful, the pin on the outside is also removable and she can wear it!

Of course we don’t want to forget the kids! Hallmark has a wide range of products that can help you just send a thoughtful greeting, or help the kids send a list to Santa himself!

There is a card that lets your child(ren) record a list that they can then mail to Santa. This is especially useful for young children who cannot yet write. Another card actually counts down the days until Christmas with a digital display!


If you are a grandparent, or just want to give a fun personalized gift to a child, a recordable storybook is an absolute must! The kids will love to hear YOU reading the book to them as they page through. Perfect for those who may not see their grandchildren often! We actually received a story book and I recorded it for my kids. This is great for when I am working late, or gone on trips, because my husband can put the kids to bed while they still get to hear mom read them a book!

Another great gift is an Interactive Story Buddy. These cute cuddly buddies respond when you read the story! It also comes with a read-along CD, and online story time. My kids just love this kind of stuff, and are so excited to try our Jingle buddy out!
