Making The Little Things Special This Christmas with Hallmark | AD

The run up to the big day can always be a little stressful. Making sure that all the gifts gave been wrapped, the food bought and the to-do list at the ready so the whole day goes like perfect clockwork. But, much like everything in life, the little things make all the difference.

For most, The festivities start the minute it hits midnight on December 1st. The tree goes up, the stockings hung and the shopping commences. But it's not just the gifts that we splash out on: from wrapping paper to cards, gift bags to stocking fillers, there is a lot to think about. I guess we make everything harder for ourselves. Going to the supermarket for the wrapping paper and bags, town for the stocking fillers and the card shop for well, the cards. But why do we do this? Surely there is an easier way?

Hallmark is a well known and much loved brand. If you are aware of them or not, you will have bought or received one of their products in your life. Often known as just a brand that supply cards: Hallmark is a wonderful, brilliant and reliable company you can trust to make your Christmas that little bit easier and that whole lot more enjoyable.


There is a reason why Hallmark is so loved and known for their cards. From multi packs to innovation cards, they supply beautifully unique cards to fit any and all occasions. For Christmas, there is no better time to trust in Hallmark.

Boxed cards. When it comes to the festive season, you often find yourself sending cards to every colleague, friend and distant cousin you can remember. Box packs of cards seem to be the easiest and cheapest way to make sure everyone is included. But they don't have to be boring, ugly or even cheap looking. Hallmark have some brilliant packs that are festive and gorgeous at the same time: for every taste and age.

Individual cards. These are usually bought for the special people in your life, the ones that deserve more than a pack card. For the parents, grandparents, children and partners. Hallmark have some really pretty cards this year, for the the soppy and the people who find it hard to say just what they mean. There are handcrafted cards and Disney cards for the kids: Something to suit everyone. I have loved picking a beautiful creation for my parents to say thank you for the wonderful support they've given me all year to the frozen olaf card for my little baby boy.

Innovation creations. If you're looking to impress or in my case, give the best card and become best auntie...then these are perfect. Cards that don't just say Merry Christmas but literally pop out at you and scream It's Christmas in your face. Hallmark have really upped their game and steeped out of the envelope. Their 3D paper wonder cards are beautifully crafted pieces of art that pop out to make little sculptures. Great for a little extra ump and the best mantle piece show stopper. From nativity scenes, to trees, santa and penguins: there is something again to suit everyone.

If you really wanna go out there, then the Fold-out cards that are big enough for your little one to get in and play. These are wonderful for young children and toddlers. They unfold, from flat, into huge play areas for your little ones to enjoy.

Itty Bittys:

You may have seen these around or in your local card shop. For a brilliant stocking filler, something to really wow your friends and family. We have five of these from the summer: a mixture of classic superheroes and Disney characters, toys that both my toddler and my older niece and nephews really enjoy playing with. Hallmark have a range of little teddies from the recent release of Frozen 2 and classic favourites such as Star Wars, Toy story, Harry Potter and The Wizard of Oz. If you know someone who loves their films, is into collectables or just enjoy playing with soft toys: then these are perfect. They are really reasonably priced too which make them the ultimate stocking filler.

Wraps and bags:

One thing we all need this Christmas is wrapping paper and gift bags. Often we buy the overpriced paper that we see by the tills in the supermarket when we suddenly realise we haven't got any. But with Hallmark you can buy really gorgeous paper which will not only look good but bring a little dazzle to the season. From Frozen, not literally, paper for kids to festive patterns: there is a wide and beautiful selection available.

Hallmark's gift bags not only come in the traditional shape but have a variety of shapes and sizes to fit the small, big and weirdly shaped gifts this Christmas. Ones to match your wrapping paper or act as an alternative.

For many of us we have to buy for many people and there is nothing more satisfying than wrapping all your gifts and seeing them matching. There is a large range of bundles which have matching sets of wrapping paper and wrapping paper. Again there are options for all ages and genders, making it so much easier to wrap and gift.

So to make your season much less stressful and more enjoyable, buy everything in one place from Hallmark. For beautiful, easy to use and seasonal favourites: there is only one place to go.
