Hallmark Recordable Storybook Giveaway for Valentine’s Day!

Who isn’t looking for a sentimental gift for Valentine’s Day? Especially when it comes to the kiddos, you want something that will say I love you for a long time to come…

That’s why I thought it would be perfect to do a Hallmark Recordable Storybook giveaway in time for Valentine’s Day!

IMG 8419 300x224 Hallmark Recordable Storybook Giveaway for Valentines Day!

I originally received my first Hallmark Recordable Storybook just before Christmas. I immediately thought of my mother-in-law who was coming to visit us and thought to save it for her to record for the kids…and that’s just what we did. Take a look:


We selected “The First Christmas” for Nani (a combination of “Nana” & “Anita” …isn’t that adorable?!) to read to the kids. The process couldn’t have been easier (just make sure to move the button from the ‘Record’ switch after you’re done so the kids don’t erase it on accident!) and now my kids have a keepsake from their grandma to treasure for years to come. In fact, my kids now refer to it as their ‘favorite book’.

Obviously I’m not going to give away a Christmas book (I’m all about after Christmas sales, but this isn’t the venue for that!), so just look at what I do have for you. One lucky winner can pick their choice of the following titles:
-”All the Ways I Love You”
-”Guess How Much I Love You”
-”Counting Kisses”
-”On the Night You Were Born”

I was SO excited when I found out Hallmark turned these popular children’s books into recordable titles. While Hallmark offers so many other options for their Recordable Storybooks, the above selections are some of my favorites that I’ve read to my kids, so that’s why I wanted to share them with you.

guess how much i love you Hallmark Recordable Storybook Giveaway for Valentines Day!

Obviously the first two would be ideal for Valentine’s Day, but I have to say that ever since discovering “On the Night You Were Born Hallmark Recordable Storybook Giveaway for Valentines Day!” it’s been one of my favorite gifts to give to people when they have a newborn. I can’t even imagine the blessing it would be to receive this book in its new recordable version!
