You still have time! If you're pondering how to express yourself perfectly for this year's Mother's Day holiday, we've got some great gift ideas from Hallmark. Here are our faves:
Recordable Artwork: Canvas Art Kit
We always give something handmade from our kids to the special moms in our life -- even if we buy them something to go with it. This product is the perfect combo of "handmade with love" and modern classic retail gift. Simply allow the kids to decorate the canvas with the included paints. Once they have the perfect painting, insert it in the recordable frame and have the kids give a personalized message of love. This is a gift that keeps giving for years after they've expressed themselves. (ARV $14.95)
Conversations to Keep: Recordable Book
I remember finding an old cassette tape I had made as a small child and thinking "wow! I can't believe how special that conversation was!" Now you can experience the same joy of a conversation with your own child in these interviews you record inside a book! Ask your child the questions that go along with the story, record them, and play them back for years. You can keep the memory of their childlike wonder fresh for decades with these unique keepsakes!
Hallmark Greeting Cards
There's a reason people think "Hallmark" when they think of greeting cards. They have been making unique and clever expressions of love for the holidays since before I was born, and I still enjoy reading all the new card messages each year. Whether you have a close bond with your mom, enjoy a comfy relationship with a half-sister, or just want to give a first time mom a "congrats" -- I'm sure there is a card from Hallmark that says it with wit and love. This year's cards come with music, lights, and even pop-up flowers; there are so many surprises waiting inside!
