Cocktail Kits, Apparel/Accessories, Sentimental Favorites Among Top Choices 

Norman’s Hallmark gift display

NEWTOWN, Pa. (June 1, 2023) – With June’s arrival, calendars are filled with seasonal celebrations and important milestones. Wondering what to buy for dads, grads, teachers and everyone in between? Norman’s Hallmark, an employee-owned company and the nation’s largest independent owner of Gold Crown Hallmark stores, has curated a selection of gift ideas that will appeal to every age, taste and budget.   

“Regardless of the celebration, Norman’s Hallmark takes the guesswork out of gift giving,” said Howard Henschel, president and chief executive officer. “We are in the heart of one of the largest card-sending seasons. Greeting cards are the perfect way to celebrate with those near and far, and our stores offer thousands of options from which to choose.” 

The card and specialty gift retailer’s popular gift items include choices new to the market as well as time-honored favorites: 

Mix it up. “The idea of entertaining is resonating with our customers – and one of the biggest trends we are seeing centers around mixology, spirits and drinks,” said Henschel. New at Norman’s are MixCraft spirit infusion kits. These reusable glass bottles are equipped with a potion pouch prefilled with ingredients to make the perfect cocktail; each kit makes up to eight cocktails at one time. 

Norman’s also carries Stonewall Kitchen mixers that make mocktails or cocktails, while Whiskey connoisseurs will love a Whiskey Tasting Kit along with the popular Corkcicle Whiskey Wedge.  A wide selection of recipe books, coasters and napkins are perfect add-ons to any of these spirited gifts. 

Get Carried Away. No gift giving occasion would be complete without mentioning Vera Bradley  products, BOGG Bags, and Scout bags and accessories. These products make great teacher and birthday gifts, too! Vera’s newest classic pattern “Enchanted Mandala” is already in stores and became an instant hit. Perfect for the beach and beyond, the stylish BOGG Bag is durable, washable and tip-proof with waterproof inserts that keep smaller items safe and within reach. Scout bags – the go-anywhere, do-anything, organize-everything tote – are another great choice for vacationers and weekend warriors alike. 

Grads & Dads. Graduation is a magical moment in every young person’s life. Dr. Seuss’ “Oh the Places You’ll Go” is synonymous with this milestone. Shirts, Tervis  stainless-steel tumblers and the actual book are available in Norman’s stores. Recognize your favorite 2023 graduate with a traditional Hallmark Keepsake Ornament  or a Malden frame. 

Always a perennial favorite, Life is Good t-shirts make a great gift for every Dad on your list. Norman’s also recommends the popular and long-lasting Man Bar, super smelling soaps that comes in a classic styled gift box. Hey Dude shoes also make the perfect gift. Light, breathable and comfortable, they are popular with all ages and are available in both men’s/women’s styles. 

Norman’s offers a complete line of Hallmark products, cards for every occasion and Keepsake Ornaments, along with a diverse merchandise selection for gift giving and the home that includes fashion apparel and accessories, books, stationery, games, home décor, specialty candy and gourmet foods. The company maintains thriving supplier partnerships with additional household-name brands like Squishmallows, Vera Bradley, Yankee Candle, Life is Good, Willow Tree, Mud Pie, David Bradley, Stonewall Kitchen, and Godiva, amongst many others.  

Norman’s Hallmark currently operates more than 70 locations. With roots dating back over 80 years, Norman’s Hallmark has grown from a single retail store in Trenton, N.J., to a leading force in the social expression industry. The Newtown, Pa.-based company continues to grow its brick-and-mortar footprint throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and in recent years expanded into Delaware and northern Maryland; it also maintains a strong ecommerce presence.
