I am a Hallmark girl. I have worked there twice in my life and will not buy a greeting card unless it is from the actual store. Their Christmas ornaments are amazing and we have so much fun going through the catalog every year searching for our favorites. Trim the tree parties are filled with Hallmark boxes ~ of both ornaments and decor.
One of the best parts about working at a Hallmark store were the gifts! I don’t just mean wrapping paper and bows, but collectibles and best selling products. Jim Shore, Precious Moments, and Willow Tree are just a few of my favorites. Hubby gives me presents for my birthday and Christmas from these figurine lines quite often. They have a lot of meaning and are perfect for any type of gift ~ showers, weddings, new babies, friendship, thank yous.
I was super excited to find Coppin’s Gifts! An online Hallmark store that specializes in all of the great products! From DaVinchi Beads to snoozies! slippers to a terrific selection of puzzles!
You can find any Gift ~ for anyone on your list ~ for any occasion!
The first time I worked in the store, Beanie Babies were the rage. Gosh, I remember the fights to grab them when our store opened. The second time it was Webkinz. Now the big item is My Pillow Pets!
Coppin’s Gifts sent us the Penguin My Pillow Pet. Now my boys have collected MANY stuffed animals over the years. Their room is overflowing. Hubby was determined to not let them fall into the ‘must have pillow pet’ trap as they are good sized and they surely didn’t NEED them. Hubby lost that battle of course. Now each of the boys has one. ha!
We were surprised at how nice these are. They are super soft (chenille!) ~ even I like rubbing my hands through it like I’m petting an animal. hee hee. They are squishable, which makes them nice to sleep with. They are fun! Make them look like a petl by pulling the strap over their belly ~ easy ~ or leave it alone and they are a flat pillow.
You can see how we are enjoying ours…
playing giddy up…try telling him that is for horses!

Many animals to choose from and they are all pretty cute. Which is your favorite?
