Loving Minted: A Gift Roundup

Posted by Dani on November 19, 2013

I’ve got holiday shopping on my mind these days, and I’ve learned to avoid the big malls as much as possible. Just the sight of the overfilled parking lots is enough to scare me away. I like to hit up local craft fairs, and hunt for some unique finds in my favourite vintage stores. And I’ve been doing more and more shopping from my comfy couch in front of the fire by hitting up some great online destinations.

A new one I’m trying out this year is Minted. They’re an online marketplace for indie designers, and crowd-source design and art from around the world for gorgeous stationary, wall art, décor and other fine products. They have been hosting open art and graphic design challenges monthly since 2008, and curate their product assortment to represent the best designers.

I’ve seen a number of reviews for their gorgeous Christmas card collection, but I decided to have a look at their gift selection instead for something a little different.

Now, for those of you who secretly dream of having a Martha Stewart designed wrapping station, how about your own PERSONALIZED WRAPPING PAPER instead? Imagine your favourite pics all over the pile of gifts under the tree! How cool is that?

Or maybe you’re giving baked goods for Christmas, and would like to have the recipe printed on the wrapping paper? I bet Martha doesn’t even have that.

And of course, you would want some special gift tags to go with that.

I know a few grandmothers who would treasure a calendar like this one.

How about turning your photos into art? Minted makes it easy.

Or you can create an instant family heirloom.

I love their limited edition art prints!

Their custom children’s art makes it easy to personalize a bedroom.

And what kid would not love their own door sign?

Now I know I said I wasn’t going to look at their cards, but I couldn’t help it. Have a look at this foil pressed beauty.

And this one actually saves your dog from the indignity of having real antlers tied to his head.

If you’re looking for a seasonal card, the designs are gorgeous and Minted make it easy to order. And I’ve had a look at the personalization process for all of these products and it looks easy – even I was able to figure it out at a glance.

I really love the idea of personalized gifts. It just adds another layer of thoughtfulness. And you can shop in your pj’s with a nice cup of tea beside you. That’s a big Christmas win in my book.
