Hallmark Knows Moms — Why I’m Leaving Mother’s Day to the EXPERTS.

I see you out there—you’re just like me: horrible at Mother’s Day. This woman went to all the trouble to bring you into this world, and on the one day each year to honour her, here you are shopping for a gift the week before Mother’s Day! (*Okay, two days—she had a birthday, too. **Okay, three days—you probably do Christmas or Hannukah or something, so hey. You get the point, right?)

And don’t forget: Mom probably knows you better than you know yourself, so this isn’t some gift you can figure out at the last minute! She’ll thank you, but that’s one guilt trip just waiting to happen somewhere down the line!

Which is why you—and all non-planner types like me—need help. We need someone skilled in all things Mother’s Day to guide our ways and help us get the gifts our Moms will love.

And so, enter Hallmark.

Hallmark Canada invited me and some other content creators from the Toronto area to a Guy-Friendly Mother’s Day Wrapping Party hosted by Rick Campanelli, one of the nicest guys ever borne of Canada’s entertainment industry! In a showroom filled with greeting cards, gifts and wrapping paper, my mission was simple—to choose stellar Mother’s Day presents for the Moms in my life and wrap ’em up well in advance of the 13th!

And it was excellent, too, because Hallmark knows Moms far better than I do, with a selection of gifts that’d satisfy even the most discerning Mom in your life! Slippers, jewellery, handbags and more—Hallmark’s far more than just another greeting card store!

Disclaimer: As mentioned in the post, Hallmark Canada invited me out to see their Mother’s Day collection and take gifts home for the mothers in my life. You’d think spending time wrapping gifts would make for a dull night, but you’d be very wrong!
