It is graduation season! Woohoo! Lives are changing and kids are growing up. Graduation day is a big deal, whether it's an Elementary Graduation or a college graduation, it should be celebrated. I know that gift giving can be difficult sometimes. It is especially difficult when it isn't a big holiday because there aren't gift ideas everywhere... or are there? There are gift ideas everywhere, you just have to look and think outside of the box. The best gifts aren't always labeled as "graduation gifts" or "birthday gifts". Sometimes it is better to find something that not everyone would give.
Since Easter is only a few days away, I want to give you a few ideas to make it a Hallmark Easter. Did you know that Hallmark has Easter cards for just about everyone? Easter doesn't have to just be about the kids or about religion. It can be about sharing love with your friends and family. What better way to express yourself than with a greeting card? The fact is that sometimes you can't physically be with your loved ones. That doesn't mean you can't surprise them with a nice card letting them know that you are thinking about them. Below are a few ideas that you should consider this Easter.

For the past few months I have been on a search for a delicates bag that I can throw into washing machine. I searched a few retail and grocery stores, but the only bags I could find were for the dryer or just too small for me to stuff my items in. My bras and other delicate items seem to get wrapped and tangled in the washer. I have had shirts and bras completely ruined after getting twisted up in the machine. The truth is that sometimes our washing machines, no matter how high-tech or expensive they are, just do not protect our clothing enough.
