Dad’s there is still some time for your children to make something special and unique for mom. New for 2013, Hallmark introduces Magic Prints, a new line of greeting cards and gifts. The Magic Prints gift line features 14 products that range in price from $9.95 to $24.95. A variety of frames are included in the line, such as shadow box frames, a fold-out frame for multiple hand-prints and magnet frames.
At Today’s Woman we feel it’s a wonderful way for young children to get involved in personalized gift giving while showing appreciation for Mom or even Grandma. Each Magic Prints frame comes with a mess-free Crayola® Magic Mitt ink applicator that is safe for your children and even your pet.
To use simply insert fingers into the Magic Mitt and peel open. Rub the non-toxic, mess-free, colorless magic solution on hands, fingers or feet—or even a pet’s paws. Add your print to the magic paper, making sure the “top” label is facing up. Press firmly, then remove and watch your print appear. Your child can then personalize it further by inscribing a message to make it warm and special.
We found it really easy to do and mess free. We used the magic mitt and rubbed it on my granddaughter’s foot and then pressed her tiny foot to the paper. Her print was there and it revealed all kinds of messages. Her foot is tiny as she is only 3 months. We assume it would reveal more words if her hand of foot were larger. Either way it is the perfect gift to give my daughter on her first Mother’s Day.
Each mitt contains enough solution for two hand-prints ( foot-prints or paw prints .) Each Magic Prints gift comes with at least two insert pages in case you mess up the first page.
Additional gifts in the line include a Keepsake Ornament, travel mugs, a journal and even gift bags that let kids put just as much thought and personal touch into the gift presentation as they do choosing and creating the gift itself.
Magic Prints cards and gifts are available at Hallmark Gold Crown® stores and participating Hallmark retailers nationwide. Visit http://www.hallmark.com/stores to find the nearest Hallmark Gold Crown store.

Here are a few other keepsake items perfect for Mother’s Day:
Magic Prints Greetings: Like the Magic Prints frames, Magic Prints greetings allow kids to add a colorful personal touch to these cards which can be sent to a favorite aunt or mother figure. Some Magic Prints greetings even allow a child to record their voice directly into the card!
Pics ‘n’ Props: Pics ‘n’ Props add creativity and fun to family photos! Themed kits include props kids can use to take fun photos dedicated to mom (or grandma). After the photos are printed, put them in the frame/photo album included with the kit for a one-of-a-kind gift.
We thought it was such a cute Idea and I love how everything comes right in the box. The kit we received included a banner that said I love you and when you flip the banner over it reads We love mom. You could even use the banner to say I love Mom or We love you. We plan to give it to our friend Rachel for Mother’s Day.
Whether it’s a friend, an aunt, grandma or mom, Hallmark has some great personalized gift ideas.
