Review and giveaway: Hallmark Mother's Day Moment in Time gift pack

Over the past couple of months, I've had the opportunity to work with Hallmark a couple of times and toreview a number of products. Every time I've been so impressed with the products, both from a quality standpoint and a "what a wonderful idea- I love this product!" point of view. The products that I received last week are no exception.  In preparation for Mother's Day, I received several products that would make great gifts for the mom in your life.

The first product is a really clever one- the Canvas Art Kit. It's a kit with a canvas and paint- and it has a recordable frame! So your little artist can paint a picture for mom, then you can record a 40 second message of the child/children them telling the story behind the picture- and maybe even a special message for mom or grandma  as well. I love this idea! Kids grow up so fast, and it's nice to be able to capture special moments of creativity. 

The next product is equally fabulous- it's the Mom & Me Conversations to Keep Recordable Interview book (also available as Grandma & Me). It's a hardcover book, full of darling illustrations and questions for mom to ask the kids and record the answers.  There are questions like "what do you think mom does when you are not around" and "if you could travel anywhere in the world with mom, where would you go and what would you do there?" And many more questions for your kids to answer. 

Hallmark also has, as always, many great cards for you to send to the moms and grandmothers in your life. I received three beautiful Mother's Day cards to review. They are all beautiful in appearance and sentiment. As a mom, I would get a little teary-eyed to receive any of them. 

So, if you're looking for a good idea for a Mother's Day gift or card, definitely check out what Hallmark has to offer. They know how to do holidays! 

And I have great news! One lucky reader will win the same products I reviewed (the recordable canvas, the recordable interview book and several Mother's Day cards). Open to US mailing addresses, enter at the Rafflecopter widget below.

No Mother's Day will ever top my very first Mother's Day as a mom. My little girl was only 2 and a half months but I will cherish the memories of that day forever.

MMy girls are still too young to really comprehend what mother's day is. My husband does a great job of making it special and they shower me with extra love and attention. I am looking forward to the years of breakfast in bed like soggy cereal and bad coffee!!!

I don't have kids of my own (that I gave birth to), so my sweetest Mother's Day was a few years ago when my stepdaughter made me a Mother's Day card. It was totally unexpected and the sweetest surprise ever! (Yes...I cried.) :)

My ex wasn't the type to think about what was special for others and my oldest was too young to understand holidays. So my daughter and I always spent the day together doing fun things like baking and projects. The be honest, it was just another day in that respect, since projects, activities and cooking were daily events for us. But just the fact that I got to spend the day with my kiddo was more than enough! This year, I get to spend the day with both my daughters (my 11month old hasn't had a mother's day yet!) and my own mom!

One of my favorite others Day memories was giving my mother a 'beautiful' pin I bought for her at the drugstore - it was a poodle with multi-color crystaks - I was so proud!
