Hallmark’s Press Pause Panel

Hallmark wants Canadians to press pause and take the time to recognize and celebrate the moments that make our lives special. 

I am excited to announce that I have been chosen to be a member of Hallmark’s Press Pause Panel.  As a member of this panel I received a fabulous box of goodies from Hallmark giving me the inside scoop on some of the fabulous gift ideas available for all of life’s special moments!!  Now I can share the news with you and remind us all that sometimes in life we really do need to Press Pause and enjoy the moment! 


One of my favourites in my little box of goodies was Watson the Raccoon.  This clever little plush is voice activated.  As you read the accompanying story book aloud to your little one, Watson participates by reacting to key phrases and sounds. I can not wait to see the reaction this story and stuffy will bring to some smiling faces this Easter!

Speaking of Easter,  I have simply fallen in love with the cuteness that is this duck!

This Totally Ticklish Duck.

You tickle this plush duck and it giggles?  Brilliant!!

Another Gift idea that truly melted my heart was a recordable story book!  As you read along with your babies you are presented with a number of open ended questions.  A simple press of the button as they fill in the blank and your moment is caught forever in an incredible keepsake. It would not be an exaggeration if I told you I was a bit teary reading though this book.   Just imagine being able to pull this story out years from now and having the memory of the day preserved in such a special way.

Oh and if you are addicted to taking pictures like I am you are going to need one of these!!  A Memory Keeping Recordable Frame.  Perfect for Mother’s Day! 

You get to hear the story behind your photo. This elegant photo frame is made of solid wood and includes recordable technology.  It allows for up to 10 seconds of recording time.  What a way to capture the moment!

Did you know Hallmark offered so many gift ideas?

Hope you find some time this weekend to press pause and enjoy a moment with your loved ones.
