Bring the Holidays to Life with Hallmark - Holiday Gift Pack Review and Giveaway {Holiday Gift Guide 2012}

The hustle and bustle of Thanksgiving and Black Friday are over and it's officially the start of the Christmas season. December 1st will be here in just a few days which means it's time to start decking the halls, sending out Christmas cards, and starting the Christmas countdown. Well, with the help of Hallmark my family is officially in the holiday spirit!

The lovely folks at Hallmark have sent us a fun-filled holiday gift pack to review that included the new “A Visit to the North Pole” Be a Part of the Story Storybook, a North Pole Countdown Keepsake Ornament, and a selection of the newest Signature and Interactive Greetings from Hallmark.

Our absolute favorite product is the “A Visit to the North Pole” Be a Part of the Story Storybook!
With Hallmark’s newest line of storybooks — Be a Part of the Story — kids chat with the main character. The Be a Part of the Story collection features exclusive technology that allows kids to have a conversation with storybook characters and keep the story moving. When highlighted lines are read aloud, the character chimes in with a special question or choice for a child to answer. Once the child answers, the character responds and the story continues!

The interactive storybook is a great way to get kids excited about Christmas, as if they're not excited enough already, and it's also a great way to spend some quality time with your kids. My boys love to interact with Santa as if he's right in the room with us. It really is a fun holiday product.


Along with the storybook we received the North Pole Countdown Keepsake Ornament which I absolutely love. Beginning December 1st, you can gather your family around the radio each night and tune in to hear updates from the North Pole. What a neat keepsake idea and such a fun way to countdown the days until Christmas!


Of course, you can't have the holidays without the holiday cards, right? Well, Hallmark has a variety of card collections and sentiments including interactive greetings, personalized greetings, and of course, Hallmark's signature collection. Another one of the products we received is Mickey Mouses Christmas Countdown which is an interactive greeting card that features a functioning countdown clock.

Hallmark has always been well-known for bringing the holidays to life and this years holiday products are no exception. Tell your loved ones how much you care with one of these wonderful products this holiday season!
