We love being able to knock as many people off our holiday gift list as we can at a single online shop, don’t you? That’s why we’re always featuring shops that have more than a couple of great things. It’s also one of the reasons we’re so thrilled to find that one of our favorite sponsors, Minted, has added some really spectacular personalized gifts to their shop that are just as lovely as the holiday cards that our readers love.

Their personalized gift selection really is amazing, in part because they’re all designed by talented indie artists from around the country. No vector art here. Plus, it’s affordable which is always a plus in our book. So we’ve put together just a few of our favorite personalized gifts we found at the shop, to help you cross more than a few names off your holiday list at once.


Whether you’re trying to find the perfect gift for the doting grandparents or a new baby whose nursery walls could use some sprucing up, we are flipping over the personalized art prints now available here. Hint: Add a frame to make it an extra special gift. It’s super affordable.

Some of our own favorite gifts are those that use our kids’ own artwork. So we’re pretty sure these custom journal will be a hit under the tree this year. Choose from custom photo journals or simply add a name or monogram to an existing journal design. They happen to make perfect, affordable teacher gifts too–whether it’s that cute apple design, or a piece of artwork from the whole class.

As card junkies ourselves, we love giving–and receiving–real handwritten notes from time to time in this digital age. Adding personalization, you can turn simple stationery into a really thoughtful gift. Hint: Order cards for your own kids when they’re old enough to be able to sign their names. That way, they can work toward sending their own thank you notes one day. (One can hope…)
