The Best in Holiday 2012 Gift Finds is an ongoing series until December that celebrates the practical to the extravagant, the unusual to the commonly needed items of everyday life.
From food, wine and spirits to beauty, clothing and even home goods and appliances, we have been trying and testing and ultimately weeding out the good stuff you should consider for giving this holiday season. Take us shopping with you.
Hallmark Keepsakes have something for us all, the collector, the person that wants to commemorate a special someone. They're pop culture kitsch, and I love them.
Hallmark Ornaments are sealed and are wrapped in original bubble wrap or plastic casing with a card with an illustration of the Ornament too.
Pop culture Keepsake Ornaments from Hallmark are a great gift, especially for the collector as it can be a very expensive hobby, especially for the cool Star Wars and Star Trek ornaments which now fetch hundreds of dollars on auction sites.
Hallmark makes ornaments of comic book characters, Disney films, TV shows, holiday classics such as A Christmas Story and even new movies like The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
We recommend these three to invest in for the 2012 Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments that are inspired by pop culture properties. Buy extra and salt away for a return on your money too!
Twilight: Edward and Bella’s Wedding
Twilight is a film phenomenon that brings the supernatural down to earth and laces it with a good old love story. Hallmark created a romantic ornament that celebrates a moment between Edward and Bella. As they stand before each other on their wedding day, it seems the lovers' dreams have finally come true—spending eternity together.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Rum! What about the rum? We love this ode to Captain Jack Sparrow, who ponders his latest adventure in seeking the elusive Fountain of Youth. Recall each swashbuckling detail, but keep a steady eye on the horizon for mermaids and zombies ready to ambush your Christmas.
Harry Potter: The Final Battle
Amazing detail and hands down the winner for us is the Harry Potter 2012 ornament. It's up to Harry to match wits and wands with the Dark Lord once and for all. Capture the final duel's suspense in this Keepsake Ornament that features light and sound to make the battle come to life year after year.
