Review and GIVEAWAY: Hallmark Spiderman and Twilight ornaments

BlogHer 2012 Hallmark
Hallmark's NYC party, August 2012
When I was in NYC for BlogHer '12 this past August, Jackie at Free is my Life invited me to attend Hallmark's off-site party as a guest. Hallmark had rented a suite at a small boutique hotel across the street from the Hilton, and the view was AMAZING. We were also treated to desserts and were able to see their products for the upcoming holiday season.

Recently Hallmark sent me two of their movie-themed ornaments to review, and I also have a set for one lucky reader to win, as well.

I received the "Edward and Bella's Wedding" ornament ($17.95), from the Twilight series, and an Amazing Spider-Man ornament ($14.95) in the mail, two of which I had admired at Hallmark's NYC party, where there was a huge Christmas tree with all sorts of goodies. The detail on Edward and Bella's ornament is amazing - the back of her dress looks just like it did in the movie. I also was laughing at how much the man figure looks like Robert Pattinson (Edward), though the female figure doesn't resemble Bella as much. This ornament would be ideal for anyone who is a fan of the Twilight movies or book series, and would make an interesting addition to a Christmas tree.

The Spider-Man ornament is in a classic Spidey "web-slinging" pose, and is brightly colored. The quality is good as well, and I could see little boys or any Spidey fans enjoying the sight of this ornament on their tree come Christmas morning.

Hallmark has very generously agreed to give a set of these - one Edward and Bella's Wedding ornament and one The Amazing Spiderman ornament - to one of my readers. This would make a nice addition to your tree or a great holiday gift for a movie fan in your life.

Fill out the Rafflecopter form below to enter. The contest will end on Friday, October 26th at 12am EST and the winner will have 24 hours to respond to my email; if he/she doesn't respond within that time frame, an alternate winner will be chosen.

Good luck!

  1. OMG!!!!! ME WANT!!!
    My family has a bunch of different traditions for Christmas. First off, my brother and I have a tradition where we get up really early, get our stockings and open them together while watching "A Christmas Story" which is on for 24 hours on TBS!
    Then when our parents wake up we open up about one present every half hour, so we can enjoy them more thoroughly. Then we spend the day watching movies (usually ones we received as presents), and then we eat left overs from my Mom's birthday/Christmas eve party the night before.

    Yes, Christmas is the time to still be a child! ;)
