A few years ago, my sister told me about this shop where I just had to look for Christmas cards. As with most tips she gives me, she was totally right. Minted is now my favorite place to shop for holiday cards every year. When they signed on to be a headline sponsor of my Festive Family Holiday Gift Guide, I was totally thrilled. I can’t wait to tell you all the reasons we love their cards, and what we thought about their holiday gifts as well.

Here is our family Christmas card for 2014. Isn’t it gorgeous? I’m in love. Minted is an online marketplace made up of independent artists, so the designs are as distinct as the artists themselves. You can find a holiday card that fits whatever you celebrate, your family’s personality, or in this case the ocean waves and our outfits. After personalizing your card you can add recipient addressing FOR FREE. I’m not kidding. Upload your address book, check off which ones you want, and your envelopes will arrive beautifully addressed. I tried the service for the first time last year and it was a lifesaver. This year they’ve added designs to the recipient addressing so my envelopes will not only be addressed but will match the design of my cards. #Winning.
This year for the first time I used Minted to create a photo gift, and I am so happy with the results. I found this design for a photo collage, uploaded our beach pictures, and in under ten minutes created a beautiful keepsake gift for my parents. You can order photo gifts framed or unframed in a wide array of sizes and styles. Minted really is one of those places where you can find something for everyone on your list.
What about the kids, you say? How about a fun map with animals from around the world? A personalized name sign would be perfect for a kid’s room. Find stationary to fit the child’s personality and help them learn how to write thank you notes for their holiday gifts. Create a family tree to hang in a child’s room as a treasured keepsake. Sign up for emails with Minted and find out about every discount code and coupon they offer. Follow along on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, to keep up with new products, find design inspiration, and never miss a discount.
