Hey all! So I come from a family where giving a gift card is practically a sin and some years originality runs low on gift giving. I recently stumbled across a site called minted.com when I was searching for places that make custom Journals since my little sister loves to write. (You’ll see a review on that in the near future) Which brings me to my second point, if you are looking for custom items minted has quite the selection of printed items from cards and envelopes, art, journals, planners and even fabrics.

Holiday Cards

For the holiday cards(Which if you order today you’ll receive them by Friday the 19th) You can also get 10% off and free shipping using code: HOLIDAY10. These cards also come with matching envelopes and FREE recipients address printing. You don’t even have to worry about handwriting anything if you don’t want! This basically means as soon as you receive them you are ready to send them out! I love the comicbook one!

The Art Marketplace (support independent artists!)

They have art. Which I am seriously contemplating to getting three pieces for my desk at work! They have anything from hand-drawn to computer generated, painting, photography and brilliant abstracts. You can even purchase a frame.

Personalized Art

You could also create your own art through the photo gifts section. You can use one or many photos in a lovely art display or collage. I think this is especially good for close family, grandma would love it. I know my little brother would love the dinosaur one!

Custom Journals, Notebooks, Planners And More

As I’ve mentioned I’ve ordered my sister a custom notebook which I will review in the future. So I of course recommend the custom notebooks for those who have children or know children who love to write. They have such a variety of covers from ones where you can put their faces on to funky designs and fun patterns.  I customized my sister’s with a photo of her and a quote on the inside of the cover. But this was the absolute perfect gift for my sister! I also know a ton of people enjoy making custom calendars which is yet another item minted offers.

…And Then We Party

You can even get all of your holiday or new year’s party needs here through the party supply section. Personally I’m loving the photo backdrops!


You could also get custom gift wrapping and they have some lovely ribbons! (Totally reminds me of when Hallmark does Christmas wrapping, SWOON.) Personally I thought the wrapping paper was hilarious but it’s super cute. Some of the wrapping paper you can put photos and others their names.  They also have a huge selection of foil items from business cards to table runners to art pieces.

You can even find some of the art pieces at West Elm! (and you know how I love West Elm!) All in all if your family is like my family and you just can’t figured out what to get them or if you need some personalized “stuff” minted.com has it! I’m pretty darn excited about this site.


The shipping is pretty fast and they have a ton of discount codes throughout their site.
