Thanksgiving Traditions: Novelty Aprons as Hostess Gifts

apronGathering around the table and giving thanks is a lovely celebration that many look forward to each year. If you’re visiting someone’s home or even just headed to Mom’s or Grandma’s you may want to bring something special for the cook who has been up since dawn preparing the feast. Sure, a bottle of wine or fresh flowers is always welcome, but you may want to bring something a little more personal and unexpected.

The collection of Spoontiques novelty aprons may be just the thing! You’ll find collectible aprons featuring such characters as Betty Boop, Elvis Presley, as well as ones with other humorous phrases. Got a cook that loves to hit Black Friday sales after the guests leave? There is a “Born to Shop” apron that might be perfect! Maybe a leopard print or a smiley face better fits their personality. With the wide selection of novelty aprons, come with coordinating hand towels, you’re sure to find something that will truly show your gratitude to the cook!

CoppinsGifts.com has many special gifts that can’t be found just anywhere. Let us help you add a touch of thoughtfulness to your holiday gift giving!

Put a Lid on It with Charles Viancin Silicone Lids

We all know that you should cover your food before putting it in the refrigerator. For years, people have used cellophane to cover their bowls and protect their food, but cellophane can be a hassle. How many times have you had to throw away a ball of plastic wrap because you had a difficult time tearing a piece away? Those serrated metal blades aren’t always the best and they can be harmful if there are little ones going through your cupboards. Good thing CoppinsGifts.com has Charles Viancin Silicone Lids!

Happy Nappers Pillows are Here at CoppinsGifts.com!

Happy Nappers Cow and BarnHappy Nappers Dragon and CastleHappy Nappers Penguin and Igloo

For many parents, there is no struggle so great as trying to get your little one to take a nap. They are too young to realize a nap is exactly what they need to feel their best, whether while playing games with siblings and friends, or simply enjoying a favorite book or movie. Most of us have tried it all, but some days nothing seems to work. At CoppinsGifts.com, we have just added a fun, plushy new tool for your naptime arsenal – Happy Nappers! We can’t guarantee they’ll work every time, but they do make taking a nap a lot more fun.

Happy Nappers pillows are currently available at Coppin’s Gifts in 6 varieties: Cow and Barn, Dog and Doghouse, Dragon and Castle, Unicorn and Palace, Penguin and Igloo and Ladybug and Bungalow. While it may look as though each Happy Napper comes with 2 plush toys, what you actually see is the same toy in its 2 different forms! How does it work? Let’s take a closer look at the Cow and Barn as an example…

The Happy Nappers Cow is a friendly, perfect plush with little brown spots and a warm, welcoming smile. But…she’s also a barn! How exactly? Through a clever construction that involves a little zipper, a little pulling and stuffing, and a lot of creativity and fun. When naptime comes and you want the cow to visit her barn for a nap of her own, simply unzip the zipper on her back, pull out the barn, and stuff the cow inside before zipping up the door. Don’t worry, it doesn’t hurt her one bit! And it lets your son or daughter know that it’s naptime for them as well. :)

What to do when naptime is over? That’s when the real fun begins! Each Happy Napper home has a built-in doorbell, and upon pressing the button to let your toy know it’s time to rise and shine, you’ll hear doorbell sounds, snoring sounds, and the adorable sounds of your plush pet waking up!

We hope Happy Nappers are a hit in your home, not only for naptime but just for being their super cool, cute, cuddly selves!

Questions from A Friend to Get You Thinking!

coppins giftsSometimes it’s hard to figure out what to buy from Coppin’s Gifts.  (We know, we have a hard time ourselves sometimes!)  There’s just too many great things to choose from.  That’s why we always like shopping with friends.  Coppin’s Gifts has a few friends out there in Internet Land, so we like to ask them some shopping questions.  Just imagine you’re out shopping with your best girl friend.  What would she have to say about Coppin’s Gifts?  Well, our friend Aubrey from My Simple Everyday helped us do a little bit of shopping.My Simple Everyday

What are your favorite DaVinci Beads on our site?  Why?
I think all of the beads are super cute and can probably argue that all of them are my favorite.  But if I had to choose, I really love the Glass Heart Dangles combined with the Cat Eye Art Glass beads.  I think it’s great that they come in different colors so you can mix and match the beads according to your outfit of the day!

If you had to pick one of the Webkinz to take home, which one would it be?
Sunshine, of course! Summer is my favorite time of the year because the sun doesn’t set until way past 8 and there’s something about the light that makes me such a happier person.  I like to adhere to the “glass is half full” motto, so Sunshine and I would make a perfect match!

What else do you have to say about our store?
Coppin’s Gifts has something for everyone whether it be your aunt who’s an avid Disney Jim Shore collector, or your son who loves animals and would treasure a Pillow Pet for years.  I firmly endorse businesses who truly care about their customers and Coppin’s Gifts shows this with their 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Hallmark Hall of Fame

Here at CoppinsGifts.com, we’re proud to be a Hallmark Gold Crown Store.  Hallmark has been a great American institution for years now.  We also can’t help but love the Hallmark Hall of Fame movies.  They’re all so heartwarming, and they’re probably the most honored program in the history of television.  (We’re a little biased, but it’s true!)  We’ve Hallmark Hall of Fame Coppins Giftsgot some facts about the Hallmark Hall of Fame series.

  • The President of Hallmark Hall of Fame Productions has said, “Our brand is one of our most valuable assets.  We can point to many factors that have gone into the strength of our brand— but Hallmark Hall of Fame and its role in reinforcing messages of quality and caring may be the single most important force in giving our brand the power it enjoys.”  We love the message Hallmark brings!
  • It debuted on Christmas Eve 1951 with Amahl and the Night Visitors, an original opera by Gian Carlo Menotti.  The response was so great that there were encore presentations in April and December of the following year.
  • The production of Hamlet aired on Hallmark Hall of Fame in April of 1953.  More people watched Hamlet that evening than had cumulatively seen it in the 350 years since it had been written.  Shakespeare would be so happy.
  • To date, the series has earned 80 Emmys, 9 Golden Globes, 11 Peabody Awards, 25 Christopher Awards, and 4 Humanitas Prizes.

We’re proud to have the same name as such an amazingly positive force in television!

Planning The Perfect Bridal Shower

315569_garden_celebrationOne of the most exciting parts of being a bridesmaid is getting to plan a bridal shower! Today’s showers are fun and festive events, and you can do just about anything you want for the bride. If she’s not in to the traditional formal shower, have a small party for her at her favorite local pub instead. If she’s a girly girl and wants the traditional experience, then you can load up on fun and cheesy games and have an afternoon Tea!

You can create a fun and interactive day by adding a theme to the shower (besides the obvious – weddings!). Have a jewelry themed shower and have guests bring gifts inspired by different gemstones, and then let everyone make fun craft “jewelry” for the bride to wear on her wedding day. DaVinci Beads would make wonderful favors and prizes during games.

For a more relaxing event, why not host the shower in a friend’s home and treat everyone to a mini spa day? You can get at home kits for facials and give out little gift bags full of pedicure and manicure tools to all the guests. It’s a great way for all the women of the family to bond and allows the bride to feel like a queen during her shower.

Whatever theme you choose, have fun with the day. It’s a joyous occasion and the party should reflect the bride’s tastes and be a fun day for everyone. What are some of your favorite shower activities? Share the best showers you’ve ever been to and we’ll post them here and on Facebook!

My Pillow Pets: The Ultimate Road Trip Toy

Snuggle up to a My Pillow Pet Penguin

Snuggle up to a My Pillow Pet Penguin

Maybe you’ve already seen them at the mall or even at one of our Hallmark locations, but you didn’t pay them much attention because they looked like any other old stuffed animal. But don’t be fooled! My Pillow Pets are a simple yet ingenious twist on the classic comfort of a fuzzy friend.

It’s as simple as undoing the Velcro on you’re My Pillow Pet’s belly and suddenly you have a soft, comfortable pillow. The invention of a mother of two, who got tired of picking up the stuffed animals all over her children’s rooms, My Pillow Pets are designed to be the toy your child always remembers before bed!

My Pillow Pets come in a huge variety of styles. You can find the perfect friend for your child, from bears to penguins and even a unicorn! Besides being a great bed time pal, we’ve found another great use for My Pillow Pets – car trips.

Long road trips can be hard on little ones, especially when boredom sets in, or if they get off their nap schedule. Bringing along their My Pillow Pet is a great way to keep a piece of home with them, and to gently lull them into sleep when they start to get cranky!

Do you own a My Pillow Pet? Which ones are your favorites? Let us know if you have any creative uses for them and we’ll share them here and on Twitter!

Easter Treats From Webkinz

bunnyEaster is only two weeks away, and we can hardly wait for it to get here. The first signs of spring are starting to come to life all around us as the cold winter fades away, and there’s no better celebration of that than Easter Sunday. Our good friends at Webkinz have created a bunch of new cuddly friends to celebrate the arrival of Easter. They’re flying off the shelves at our stores, so we wanted to share them with all of you before they’re gone!

The Cotton Candy Bunny, pictured here, is an adorable ode to spring and the classic colors of an Easter basket. This cute little fella got a little too close to the egg dye and is covered with patches of pink, blue and yellow. He loves Easter and can’t wait to hide some eggs for all the kids to find!

The Lil’ Kinz Lamb is a smaller plush, but he’s just as full of love as his bigger brothers and sisters. He’s the perfect gift for younger kids or the long time Webkinz fan.

Now’s the time to shop for Easter – with two weeks to go we can still get all of our Easter Webkinz out to you in time. If you’ve been thinking about buying one for someone special, don’t wait any longer. Spring is almost here!
