2010 HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE – Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments

hallmark

We love Christmas around here. ?Our decorations both inside and outside the house show it. ?Hubby plans to put up the tree this coming weekend. It was a family tradition for years for all the kids to decorate it. ? But now everyone is out on his/her own so ?he does the lights then allows me to hang some ornaments. ?So every year I try to add a few collectibles just for the memories.

Hallmark Lollipop Street Recently Hallmark sent me a Keepsake ornament, the fifth in the ?Noelville line first introduced in 2006. ?It is called Lollipop Street; it stands 3 1/4 inches tall. ?Designed by artist Linda Sickman, it’s lighted and it’s sweet. ?This collector wishes she had ?the??previous annual decorations–the?Sweet Shop, Bake Shop, Gingerbread Lane, and the Community Church–as well. ?Together they really would make for one sweet gingerbread town.

What a delightful stocking stuffer! ?Hallmark Keepsake 2010 Lollipop Street lists for $19.95. and can be found at Hallmark Gold Crown stores nationwide.

Hallmark Hotline To Santa

I also received the Hotline to Santa Keepsake Ornament, designed by artist Tom Best. Thank you, Tom, for this sensory confection.

Instructions are simple:
First, record your wish list for Santa.
Next, press “play”.
Last, listen to your own voice.

This 3 3/4 inch high, interactive, fun-friendly ornament also plays two Christmas, “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” and “Deck the Halls”. Won’t it be great, when the kids grow up to be able to go back to this moment in time and remember the sounds of these times?

The SMRP for Hotline to Santa is $18.95. It can be found at Hallmark Gold Crown stores nationwide.
