Gift Idea - Hallmark Interactive Christmas + a Giveaway + a 30% off code

It's the week of Thanksgiving, which means the countdown to Christmas has officially begun!  When I was younger Thanksgiving meant putting up the tree, making decorations, and hanging up the ultimate paper countdown chain.  I would have loved to ring in the Holidays with today's gift ideas from Hallmark. 

Gift Idea - “Bring the Holidays to Life” with Hallmark and Hallmark Gold Crown Stores.

Besides the paper chain, every Christmas Season I also marked off the days on a calendar, ate chocolates from an advent calendar, and did a secret 12 days till Christmas for one of my sisters.  I would have absolutely loved the North Pole Countdown Christmas Ornament.

The North Pole Countdown Ornament is a cute radio that helps listeners dial down the days till Christmas.  Every day you turn the dial, and here an update from the North Pole.  The news update is brought to you "live" from the North Pole every day between Dec. 1st and Christmas. 

Something else new from Hallmark are there Be a Part of the Story Storybooks where kids chat with the main character.
 In A Visit to the North Pole, readers can interact with Santa Clause as they tour around the North Pole. When highlighted lines are read aloud, the character chimes in with a special question or choice for a child to answer. Once the child answers, the character responds and the story continues. The book can be a little different depending on the child's response, but it's always fun!

Hallmark also has a new line of Interactive Greeting Cards.  You can countdown to Christmas with Mickey,.  Uncover a new Holiday surprise every day with the advent calendar.  Or my favorite, record your child's
wish list!

To Buy - All of the above products can be purchased at Hallmark Gold Crown Stores.  And the ornaments and interactive storybooks can be purchased online for $24.99 from  As a special for all of you, use the code BLOG30 for an extra 30% off your order at (Good through Dec.)
