This is a sponsored coversation with Minted.com, however all opinions are my own.
Maybe every one loves it, maybe its the Southerner in me, but I wish all gifts were personalized. Is there a point where momogramming isn’t appropriate? I think not! So this year is the year of personalization, I am maxing out on all of the personalized holiday shopping and there will be names on everything thanks to Minted.com. Personalized gifts are awesome for all ages, I personally get all giggly when I order something for my kids with there name on it. The great thing about Minted.com is that not only do they have name personalized item but they also offer a variety of beautiful photo gifts.
Personalized Holiday Cards
This is something I interally spend hours on each Fall. A lot of work goes into coordinating the perfect (in my opion) Christmas card. First you have to start with a photo you love. This year we used a new photographer and she did not dissapoint. I love the pictures she captured of our family. I personally like to send a card that has a picture of all of us vs just the kids. For our family and friends that we aren’t connected with on social media this is the main opportunity to see how we all are. Minted offers a variety of personalized holiday card options, they offer both photo and non photo cards as well as Christmas, Religious and a variety of other holiday options. I prefer the religious Christmas card with a photo and foil press text so I select those options to see what the offerings are. You can also use the filter application to view only the styles you want by chosing which format, printing type, text and shape. Every year I chose something a little different. Here is a glimpse at the past few years personalized holiday cards.
Personalized Holiday Gifts
I think some of the hardest people to shop for on my list are the grandparents. Our parents don’t need us to buy them a book or a tool off their wish list. If there are like me they usually just buy those things for themself when they see them. So the question is what to give them that they will love and hopefully haven’t already thought of. I took my favorite family photo from our shoot and chose a beautiful framed photo art piece for them. I loved it so much that I ordered one for myself as well. They have a huge variety of predesigned layouts to chose from, you are going to love it so much I bet you start ordering new prints for your entire house.
Minted has a new line called Little Mint that contains the most precious children’s decor items you have ever seen. Everything you need to design a space that both you and your kids will love. This would be a great link to send those grandparents for their shopping too!
Personalized Holiday Home Decor
Minted has everything fom table linens, ornaments, to tree skirts and pillows. Stockings have always been on of my favorite Christmas traditions. This year we have a new edition to our famiy so I needed to find her a beautiful stocking to add to the mix. I picked this beautiful cranberry red striped stocking and took full advantage of Minteds offering for FREE personalization. The small leather tag with foil pressed printing is beautiful and I am sure she is going to love it for many years to come. I love that I can make every present I wrap coordinate with their beautiful custom wrapping papers.
Personalized Holiday Stocking Stuffers
Now since I have the new stocking covered I needed to shop for what to put in them. Even though my kids are little we still send thank you notes for gifts or when we are invited to events. This is something I wanted to instill in my children from a very young age. In the age of emails and texting I feel like hand written notes is something that has gone to the side for many. My son recently became facinated with recieving mail. His grandparents have been sending him random post cards and he loves it. I have baskets full of stationary in my office and I’d go so far to say its a bit of an obsession. I made sure that each child has fun kid friendly personalized stationary cards to fill their stocking this year. Another great item I grabbed was personalized sticker labels. It seems like in the age of babies and preschool EVERYTHING in my life is required to be labeled. So these fun personalized name labels which can include any text you want (I use their full name and phone number) are on all the things.
I could seriously shop Minted.com for hours and have so much fun. There is so much more than just their personalized holiday offerings that I think you will love. So check them out and make sure to subscribe to their email updates for great coupon codes.
