Christmas Day is now just four short weeks away, and for even the most organised of us, that still just doesn’t feel like long enough to get every single thing and beautifully thought out detail done.
We want to do the cutesy seasonal crafts we found on the web with the kids, we want to give to charity and help those in need, we want to cram every magical detail in that we possibly can and yet, with the usual day to day tasks, school and work and family commitments – the list seems endless no matter how diligently we tackle it and cross of items with our special gold, glittery Christmas pens.
This is where Minted come in, because even the prospect of sending greetings cards can be a daunting task at this time of year – finding the perfect cards, the addresses, stamps, the time it all takes and is it Cousin Kirstie or Kirsty? You can never remember which…
Minted curate and bring you designs from incredibly talented and independent artists, they have a huge array of beautifully designed Holiday cards to suit absolutely everyone and every taste, dozens finished with stunning foil (and proceeds of which will go straight to the designers themselves). You can personalise your cards as much or as little as you need and better yet, Minted donate a portion of their proceeds to Every Mother Counts, a charity helping to protect global maternal health – you can read fully of their involvement here. So how many checkboxes have we just ticked off the epic Christmas to do list? Gotta be four or five, right?
Better yet, this weekend with their Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals you can save 20% off a $150 spend on holiday cards and gifts OR you can save 15% on cards and gifts with no minimum spend at all!
The beautiful thing about Minted is how unique they are, not only are all their designs brilliantly individual in their own right, you can customise the shape of your card, colours, add text and photos, even choose the type of card that’s used – it’s all entirely up to you!
My top picks are predominantly typography based, I’m a sucker for a pretty font! And I love the new real foil designs which add a luxury, sparkly feel. And while I love the photo cards, my little boy’s disposition for playing around and never staying still, I know I’d never get a perfectly posed photo to use, but I’m inspired by the playful design of Retro Worded Tree card.
So that’s a big job ticked off the list, now just the presents and food to sort out…
