Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas #HallmarkPressPause


This month has been a blur of holiday concerts, winter fairs, cookie making parties and of course family, friends and good food are always in the mix. Among all of that our holiday shopping has managed to be completed. I start early to hopefully take advantage of good sales but for the little extras I like to grab something a little extra special. Hallmark Canada has always offered me a great selection of holiday gifts to choose from that are appreciated by my recipients. This Christmas Hallmark delivers with some exciting gifts.




My two younger girls, Squeakers and Baby Girl, are quite the bakers so naturally when their eyes feasted upon the Hallmark selection of holiday themed bakers gifts they had to make a batch of ginger cookies from one of the “Bake Like an Elf” recipe cards. They didn’t need much help from me and I’m not surprised; the recipe was easy to follow and the elf tools included were an adorable addition.

For those without the room or ability for a real tree, this tabletop tree makes a gorgeous woodland style addition to any table. Baby Ro absolutely loves the Snowman Plush, he repeatedly presses the button so we definitely know the song Up on the Housetop word for word now. Snicker. For me, I absolutely love the cozy sweater themed appetizer plates, bowls and mug. I thought about gifting them but could not bring myself to part with them. Instead, these lovely pieces will be added to my collection.

For more than 90 years, Hallmark has celebrated the spirit of the holidays alongside Canadians.  It is our unequivocal love for the Great White North that has inspired the Home & Native Land boxed card collection: a Canadian-exclusive series that illustrates the beauty and diversity that makes our country unique – our magnificent landscapes, our treasured traditions and our Canadiana-charm.  With 50 different styles in the collection there is something special for everyone this season.  Each card is sure to instil nostalgia in each of your loved ones – no matter how near or far.




This is one of my daughters favourite Hallmark gifts this year. Each morning she does two things, 1) Look for Tootles, her Elf on the Shelf, and 2) Dial Santa on the Northpole Communicator; she may not always reach Santa as he is usually busy getting ready for the BIG day but his elves and even Mrs. Claus have tuned in to chat with her. I look forward to this time with her every morning; it’s one of the sweetest traditions we have added to our family this year.
