HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE – Hallmark DVD Greetings, Recordable Cards, Write-On Ornaments And Digital Scrapbook

hallmark 2009 writeon ornament

Years ago a dear friend passed on the tradition that guests visiting over the holidays put a decoration on the Christmas tree. We keep a basket of ornaments nearby so that everyone shares the happiness and joy of the season.

This year will be the first time our toddler grandchild be able to share this tradition with us. I already know which ornament our son’s little girl will be hanging. It is the Hallmark Baby Block Write-On Ornament, a dated block personalized with her name. Someday she will look at her collectible and remember a little at least.

About the Hallmark Baby Block Write-on Ornament

Write on the included blank label or the ornament itself to personalize this Baby Block ornament. Includes 4 stickers. 3″ H. This is $12.50 and is available only in stores.

I’m counting the days for her. I can’t wait. Neither can her father, grandfather, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Holidays are the best time to share memories and make memories while sharing. Thank you, Hallmark, for sending me this keepsake.

Another thank you, Hallmark as well for your great line of greeting cards, especially the voice ones that record intimate moments in song, story, or plain words to loved ones. Hearing makes the difference when miles separate. And as for seeing, well, I can’t imagine anything better than a loved one receiving one of Hallmark’s DVD Greetings and twenty personal photos shown with a personal message set to the song Silent Night.

About the Hallmark 2009 Christmas DVD Greeting Card

Hallmark DVD Greetings are an interactive new approach to the holiday newsletter. Each Hallmark DVD Greeting hosts a template that can be edited and customized with personal photos, burned to the included DVD, and sent with the coordinating greeting card (also included).

The Hallmark Recordable Cards With Music are also a great way to send messages of love at the holidays.

About the Hallmark 2009 Christmas Recordable Card with Music

Each Hallmark Recordable Card with Music allows the sender to record a 10-second voice message directly into the card. When opened, the recipient will hear the familiar voice of the sender, followed by a 30-second clip of a classic pre-recorded Christmas song.

Memories help keep us together, in touch. That pretty much sums it up for the Hallmark Digital Scrapbook.
