You know how the holidays bring back so many simple-yet-wonderful memories? Mine include shopping at Hallmark – growing up my mom, sisters and I loved browsing their items, especially during the holidays when their special items came out! We may or may not have returned with more bags than the men were happy with 😉 Since we’ve moved away from all of our family now – as in states away – we try to make the holidays extra special. This year we’re sending a Christmas Memory Gift Box with Free Printables!
We knew we wanted to include a Hallmark greeting card to add some cheer this holiday season with the perfect one. But guess what? We couldn’t decide, so we’re including TWO in our memory box! We also grabbed some supplies for the rest of our memory box while at Walmart…..they’ve got all you need!
We also found the perfect Hallmark greeting card for my in-laws….Star Wars seems to be a common love in our families! My family’s getting the sweet Family Christmas card with a sincere note inside from us, as well as the Wookie singing a holiday song! Can’t wait until my Dad opens that – they better record his reaction. My in-laws will love the dramatic music that plays when they open the other Star Wars card.
Don’t forget to crab some Hallmark Ornaments while you’re shopping – there’s even 16 Walmart exclusives, resign figures, new deco figurines and more! You’re bound to find something that will help with the whole ‘memory’ thing. For us, we couldn’t resist Olaf because my family is all big into Disney, and of course a Yoda – partially for Disney, part for Star Wars that I grew up watching often with my Dad, and part because I was ‘Yoda ears’ growing up. Ya, lots of memories there!
