Give the Gift of Beautiful Art with Minted

If the idea of giving a practical gift doesn’t excite you, I’ve got another gift-giving idea for you today that might! How about gifting some beautiful fine art or even custom art? I recently started working with to decorate my new studio with some fantastic art. The majority of the art for the studio was delivered yesterday and it got me thinking about all the wonderful Christmas gift options Minted has to offer!


A bit about Minted…

I love Minted’s unique business model. They sell products from independent artists and designers in 48 states and 43 countries. They offer consumers access to art and other products that they would not otherwise have access to through traditional retailers. Plus, they help independent artists learn, gain exposure, and build their businesses. As a small business owner myself, that is something I can get behind!


All of the art sold by Minted is chosen through crowdsourcing. They hold monthly design challenges where the “crowd” curates Minted’s products. Minted then produces and sells the winning designs, paying the designer a commission on every sale.

And one of my favorite things about Minted is that every piece of art comes in multiple sizes and can be ordered with or without a number of different frames!


Photo Art

I love the idea of giving photo art as a Christmas gift! It would be such a meaningful and personal present. Minted has a great selection of templates that you can customize with family photos. Photo art needs to be ordered by 12/20 for 12/24 delivery.

Here are a few of my favorite photo art designs:




Custom Art

Minted custom art would make such a special gift! You can choose from silhouette prints, house portrait art, turn your children’s drawings into fine art, map art, turn your wedding vows or favorite poem into art, or footprint art. Some of the custom art isn’t available for 12/24 delivery so be sure to double check delivery dates before ordering.

Here are some of my favorite custom art designs:


Fine Art

If you aren’t up for creating custom art this Christmas you can choose from a huge selection of fine art at Minted! I went with fine art for our studio and could not be happier with how it all turned out. There really is something for everyone in the Minted fine art section. Fine art needs to be ordered by tomorrow for 12/24 delivery.

Wedding Anniversary Gifts for Celebrating a Special Couple

An anniversary is a very special occasion that helps couples relive the most unforgettable day in their lives, their wedding day. Due the significance, selecting the right gift would be rather tedious and needs to be well-planned, but the result would create a wonderful feeling. Some of the best anniversary gift ideas would be based on something unique to the couple. This would help you narrow down your search and also help communicate the true meaning of the gift.

Selecting the Best Anniversary Gifts

There are a host of generic gift ideas available off-the-shelf. But it is important to consider the thoughtfulness you want to express through this gift. Some of the best anniversary gift ideas could be based on the following factors:

    • Gifts based on the number of years spent together – there are a host of traditional and modern gift ideas to provide a theme for your gift selection such as yellow roses or gold for a 50th anniversary. These themes would easily provide guidance and a starting point to begin your gift search.
    • Gifts based on an interest – consider a common experience like a sport or hobby they would love to experience together. This would help show how much you know them.
  • Personalized gifts – this would take some extra time and care but a hand-crafted card or creative wrapping would add the right touch of personalization to your gift.

Other Occasions Celebrating Their Special Bond

Wedding anniversary gifts are not the way to celebrate that special couple. Christmas gifts could also be a perfect way to commemorate the loving bond of a married couple. This magical holiday could be a wonderful time to help nurture the love between them and help you convey your blessings and wishes towards many more happier times together. Christmas gifts for a couple could be based on a special event. Instead of a mere material gift, this holiday time could be a wonderful opportunity to provide them with a romantic getaway or a quite dinner or outing to enjoy their time in each others company.

Selecting a truly memorable gift will not only help express your appreciation of a special couple, it will also strengthen the unique bond between yourself and the receiver. May it be a wedding anniversary or the magical time of Christmas, a well thought-out and carefully selected gift will help you convey how much you care.

Cozy Slippers Gift Idea

Okay I love this idea! Get slippers and fill them with little treats or gift cards, so fun. prettyprovidence.comDo you guys remember last year when my husband and I started a new tradition? Well we love our slippers so much that it’s definitely sticking, and this year I’m extending this tradition’s reach to other people we love. I want to give everyone slippers! I came up with a fun way to do it too…

I found these cute cable knit slippers at Payless and my first thought was that I wanted to buy them for myself, but it’s Christmas! So I bought them for a family member and stuffed a few small gifts and treats into them, channeling St. Nicholas, and wrapped it all up with a bow.

Okay I love this idea! Get slippers and fill them with little treats or gift cards, so fun. prettyprovidence.comI love how when I go to Payless I am basically bombarded with great deals and a ton of options. There really is something for the whole family there and if you haven’t been lately I highly recommend stopping in there and giving it a go! Also, let me let you in on a secret, if you join their email list you will literally always have a coupon to use on top of the already low prices. You can get gifts for all kinds of people on your list! I think I am going to get some of these moccs for my brothers this year too, because my husband loves his.

Since this gift is for a girl whose interests are similar to mine, I filled these with lip balm, nail polish, chocolate, a relaxing face mask and a gift card. If I were to be filling guy slippers for my husband I’d probably put some new earbuds or some guitar picks in lieu of nail polish/face mask but the rest of the stuff could stay the same! You can print the gift card sleeve I used for free at this link.

Okay I love this idea! Get slippers and fill them with little treats or gift cards, so fun.

Do you have any standing holiday gift traditions? I would love to hear about them!

Top 10 Best 60th Birthday Gift ideas For Men or Women

10. Skin Care Products


Individuals turning 60 tend to feel that they are looking much older. If that happens to be the scenario with the person you are buying the present for, help them feel and look younger with a skin care gift. Select a facial cream that helps them minimize wrinkles and facial lines and most importantly moisture the skin. If you want to make it look really special, a facial certificate or any other form of skin care treatment would be satisfactory.


9. Fine Wine

For some who thinks they are getting too old when they turn 60, select a bottle of fine wine for them. Choose a wine brand that has been aged for a couple of years until it reached perfection. If you want, include a set of wine glasses as well. A gift of nice, matured wine portrays that things do actually improve with age and can be enjoyed to mark milestone birthdays.

8. Luggage Bag

Luggage Bag for 60th Birthday Gift ideas

A new luggage bag for the 60th birthday would be a great gift idea. Select a rolling suitcase or a leather duffel bag complete with the persons initials monogrammed onto it. At 60 many people are already thinking about retirement and may start planning trips they hope to take once they call it quits on their working life. If you want to make a strong statement, slot in a weekend trip ticket into the luggage bag!


7. Hobbies-Themed Gifts

You can always go with a birthday gift based on the 60 year old hobbies. If the person enjoys crafts for instance, buy a scrapbook making accessories. Choose pages for a scrapbook, a glues stick, stamps, stickers and other items they can use to decorate the scrapbook. If they love to work on the yard buy them a hedge trimmer or a sprinkling system they can place in the garden.

6. Clothes

Buy clothes that are suitable for the season. High quality sweaters such as cashmere can keep the 60 year old cozy. Other clothes like soft cotton pajamas can allow them to relax. Lay emphasis on the persons taste and preferences when selecting a gift for the 60th birthday. A comfortable spa robe made from terry cloth will encourage them to have a home day spa. Purchase a few fancy clothes they can wear on exceptional occasions such as their grandchildren’s weddings to keep the gift truly unique.


5. Sentimental Gifts

sentimental gifts for 60th Birthday Gift ideas

Sentimental gifts for the 60th birthday should be highly appreciated by the receiver since they show how special they are. Send them recent photos of their grandchildren with a tailored frame to show your appreciation. A photo calendar can hold up to four pictures for each calendar month and should include subtitles showing your love. If you want to get really unique, a photo frame complete with music, photos and a video footage would be perfect.

4. Birthday Tree


What could be more significant than a gift that replenishes the earth in addition to marking a landmark birthday? Design a tailor- made birthday card, inscribe special words to celebrate the birthday and tuck in the tree branches. Native pine, cedar and fir would make ideal birthday trees. Be sure to invite family members and close friends to mark this momentous tree planting session.

3. Glitter Chocolates


Chocolates are a must have gift in many celebrations and anniversaries. While this may sound like a very obvious gift, adding creativity spun on the way the chocolates are delivered makes all the difference. Have custom made glittering chocolates with the number 60 christened on the bars. Include flavors like peanut, butter, mint and hazelnut for a unique taste. You can have the chocolates delivered at the home of the person celebrating the birthday to make it look special.


2. Diamonds


Nobody would say no to a gift of diamonds to mark their 60th birthday especially if they are custom made. Diamond gifts may also include jewelry that is skillfully selected to suit the recipient’s taste. There are so many diamond choices that vary in prices to suit each budget. A diamond themed party could be very glamorous as well. Diamond patterned tablecloths, and diamond glass centerpieces could add onto to the flair.

1. Antique Photos


This is perhaps the best 60th birthday gifts idea out there. There is no better way to celebrate the 60th birthday than giving the person classic pictures that remind them of the last 60 years of their life all captured in photos! You can group the pictures in batches of 10 years to mark each decade of the recipient’s life. Include all the pictures that marked special occasions, starting with those that were taken in the recipient’s toddler years, to when they got married and any other special occasion. Don’t forget to include messages of love in each of the photos as well.

Gifts In A Jar . . . Simple, Inexpensive, and Fun!

I originally planned on this post being about gift BASKET ideas but the more I thought about it, the more I decided I was sick of baskets. Don’t get me wrong…I LOVE baskets! I probably have WAY too many of them around my house. But GIFT baskets have been done every possible way I could think of so I decided to think outside of the basket. 🙂

It didn’t take long before my thoughts turned to JARS! I think I love jars ALMOST as much as I love baskets. Particularly these versatile and inexpensive ones you can almost always find at your local Walmart. (These were $9.99 and $7.99 respectively.) I use them as containers for my homemade laundry detergent, flour, sugar, as a vase for flowers, I’ve even used them as a “punch bowl.”

Gifts In A Jar

Today, however, I am using them as a way to give simple, creative, and inexpensive gifts for lots of different people on your list! I initially was going to do just a few different ideas, but as I so often do, I took the idea a bit too far. Oh well. Hopefully my over-achiever tendencies will result in some added inspiration for someone. 🙂

“Orange” You Glad It’s Christmas?

Red and green are so predictable this time of year! 🙂 Add a little pizazz to the holiday with a splash of orange! Orange is such a happy color! This gift in a jar is limited only by your imagination (and the selection of orange items you can come up with.)

“Orange” You Glad It’s Christmas? II

I couldn’t resist creating this more “literal” interpretation of the “Orange” You Glad It’s Christmas theme. It doesn’t get much easier than dumping a bag of clementines into a jar and adding some twine. Beats giving a “box” of oranges (like I have many times before!)

Guys are such simple creatures. Don’t believe me? Be sure to read my nephew & business partner Scott’s post about Gift Ideas for Guys. With the “simple” thing in mind, I added bottles of soda, queso, beef jerky, and a candy bar to a jar and called it good. I know any of MY guys would love it!

T.L.C. In A Jar

It never fails that someone in our house is sick over Christmas. Germs are running rampant, we are all stuck indoors, and stress levels are through the roof. Perfect storm for a “bug” to strike. This jar would be a welcome gift for anyone feeling under the weather.

Ice Cream Party In A Jar

It’s hard to think of anyone who wouldn’t be thrilled to receive an ice cream party in a jar! After I had taken the pictures for this I came up with the idea of adding a tag that says “Just Add Ice Cream.” Cute huh? 🙂

When looking for unique gift ideas you shouldn’t think of gifts you would normally buy. Consider the list that we compiled for you to make your job easier.

Multi-tool for the toolman

Unique gifts are great, but what makes a man really appreciate the gift is it’s usefulness (and that’s a fact). Men are practical creatures and they love their toys and tools. Therefore, a multi-tool would be a great gift for the guy who loves to work around the house and needs a handy tool on him pretty much all the time.

Buckle up for the fashionable charmer

There is one accessory that you can always get away with, which makes for a great gift: a belt. If you want to combine fashion and practicality, which is something we know all men appreciate, you can purchase a non-hole belt, which will save him hassle and time.

For sure you will be able to find something he likes and that has a special meaning to him.

List of 8 Valentine’s Day Ideas for Boyfriend That Neither of You Will Ever Forget to Make the Day Special

Here is a list of gift ideas that will make this night special. Just make sure that you will prepare in time so you won’t have to rush things.

Get him a box of… money

Let’s face it: who wouldn’t like to get a box of money for Valentine’s Day? For this one of the Valentine’s gift ideas for him you should get a box of chocolate (yes, you can eat the chocolate).

Metal box filled with coins

Fill the little paper baskets with different kinds of money. It is best if you get different currencies if you can; maybe you have some left from your last trip. This is a very good idea because he would expect to get chocolate and you will manage to surprise him. In the same time it will remind him of the trips you had together and he might use his gift to invite you out.

Organize the perfect movie night

You might think that there is nothing special about a movie night, but it is up to you to make it memorable. The best thing about this one of the Valentine’s Day ideas is that you will have the gift and date night wrapped in the same package.

Popcorns in a white bowl

Pick out a classic rom-com, get some snacks, prepare some popcorn, and a menu for takeout. You could also order pizza to arrive right on time. This isn’t one of the expensive Valentine’s ideas for him, but you can be sure he will be happy with it. Just don’t forget about his favorite snacks. You could pack everything in a gift basket to make things even more interesting for him.

Offer him a cupcake bouquet

Usually men offer women a bouquet for Valentine’s Day. However, you could also offer him one, made of cupcakes. This one of the Valentine’s gift ideas only works if you can prepare the cupcakes at home. Store-bought cupcakes just aren’t the same.

Two cupcakes made of paper

Plus, nothing beats giving him something you prepared, even if they’re not perfect. If you are too handy in the kitchen, you should look for a simple recipe that you simply can’t go wrong with. He will appreciate this one of the Valentine’s ideas for boyfriend even if he doesn’t like sweets simply because you worked with it.

Personalized keychain

If you don’t mind being a bit cheesy with your Valentine’s Day ideas for him, you might want to consider getting him a personalized keychain. It could say something like you love him or simply the date you gave it to him. If you wish to take it a notch further, you could get matching keychains.

Pink key on a keychain

For instance, there are those that have a message if you read the messages on the two keychains together. There are also those in the shape of two broken hearts that make a whole when put together. However, you have to make sure he is ready for such mushy gifts.

Get him a special bracelet

In case you would like to send a message with your Valentine’s craft ideas, you could be thinking about a bracelet made of leather with the infinity symbol on it. This gift is suitable for the couples who have been together for quite some time now.

Black and silver bracelet

Otherwise the infinity symbol could scare him off and certainly you don’t want that. Even if you’re not going to be together forever, it is a nice gift and nice symbol and he will be able to wear it for a long time. Although it may not be the most romantic gift, for sure it’s practical.

Toiletry bag

Again, if you’re looking for practical Valentine’s gift ideas for boyfriend, nothing beats offering a toiletries bag. You might think it’s too trivial, but in case he has to travel a lot, you can be sure he will appreciate it.

Brown retro bag

This gift may also be a peace offering in case you have been nagging him about his traveling. There are some things in a relationship you can’t fight; you simply have to embrace them and him traveling for his job is one of these things. However, if he’s traveling for other reasons, that is an entirely different story.

Couple’s pampering

You might think that pampering is only for women, but the truth is that men also like to be pampered from time to time. When thinking about Valentine ’s Day gift for him, you should consider spending a day with him at a spa.

Black stones for spa

You could book a couple’s massage and other pampering services that you can both enjoy. You could also spend some time in the Jacuzzi and then hit the sauna. Believe it or not, such relaxing activities will only make the bond between you two even stronger.


If there is one Valentine gift idea for him that you simply can’t go wrong with, it’s getting him a new gadget. In case he likes technology, you can be sure that you’re on the right path. You could buy him a new smartphone, MP3 player, MP4 player, iPod, iPad or anything else that he can “play” with. For sure there is something that he had his heart set on but never brought himself to actually buying.

Two smartphones held against each other

It’s not difficult to find Valentine’s gifts ideas for him; the difficult part comes when you actually have to decide what to get him. In this case you have to put yourself in his shoes and try to imagine what he would like to get (without adding any hidden, mean messages to the gift).
