Spring has sprung at Hallmark Canada #LoveHallmarkCA #Review #Giveaway

It's officially less than two weeks until spring! Whether or not the winter weather will completely ease up on us is to be seen, but we can dream of spring - especially Easter and Mother's Day - with great new plush toys, books, home gifts, stationary and gift bags from Hallmark Canada.

Spring has always been my favourite season - notably because my birthday is in April. As I got older I also became a big fan of Easter, and of course, when I was blessed with Hannah I now like spring best because of Mother's Day.

For all the occasions that occur in spring, Hallmark Canada has you covered.


Easter Sunday is April 5th this year.

Nothing says Easter like Easter Beagle Snoopy Plush. As mentioned in my Valentine's post, Chris loves Peanuts so he was really excited to receive one of these!

Hannah was more partial to Mimi. She's at the age where she likes telling other people what to do (most of the times nicely, other times not so nicely). She likes that she can TELL Mimi a song to sing and Mimi obliges. And when she can't decide what she wants to hear, she can say, "Mimi's choice" and Mimi picks one of the seven songs for her. (Check out the bottom of this post to enter to win your own Mimi!)


To wrap it all up, Hallmark also has a variety of colourful gift bags for Easter - including a super cute bag with Woodstock on top of a bunch of Easter eggs in a nest.

Mother's Day is Sunday, May 10th this year.

Like anything in life, you really don't know what it's like to be a Mom until you become one.

Over the years, I've defaulted to giving my Mom flowers for Mother's Day, but Hallmark Canada allows you to give gifts that will last a lifetime versus a few weeks.

In stores you can find books that celebrate Mom. My Mom, My Friend by Renee Daniels is a book of pretty pictures and sayings. You're Love, Mom: A Few Reasons Why is a book you can personalize by filling out memories of your mother while thanking her for all she's done.


Hallmark Canada also has embroidered items such as pillows and framed sentiments. I love the "Home" pillow - as we continue to update and decorate our condo, it reminds me this is in fact home.


I love the Ceramic Desktop Whiteboards with Marker. It's a perfect place to put to-dos or write a personal message versus communicating via text.

How do you celebrate Easter and Mother's Day?
