Minted Giveaway

Every year the holiday season brings families together. We all turn towards our loved ones, think of what they like and try to give them a nice gift that will let them know that they are always in our hearts. This is how I like to think of gifts, as that special something that comes from the heart. Big or small if it has a personal touch it will most definitely be appreciated.

I turned to Minted this year once again to find not only the best stationary and Christmas cards, but also personalised gifts. I have a very special friend that loves pictures and I know she would love one of their personalised collages.

I just love the variety of their product range and I am always guarantee that I will find something I like from the home collection to the party decorations. A cool thing they added is the option “buy now, personalise later” which allows you to buy a design and do the personalisation at a later date. Think about wedding invitations or thank you cards for your big day.

Now that I gave you a taste of how cool Minted is, they are offering one voucher of 100$ to one of our readers. Please just head to my Instagram to join the giveaway, that will be opened until Sunday, Dec. 20, end of day.

Happy gifting!


PS: This post was created in collaboration with Minted a brand I love and use for years.

New traditions and a giveaway!


This year end is going to be extra special for us. Besides the fact that we will welcome our first born in November, we will celebrate our first Christmas in our new place, as a family of three. This sadly means that we won’t be able to travel home to see our families like we did every year since we moved to Switzerland. And because I want all our family and friends to have a little something to remind them that we are thinking of them, I decided this is the first year I will send Christmas cards to our dear ones. It will be the first holiday when we make our own traditions and sending our wishes in print to our closest friends and family seems like a good start.

Imagine how happy I was when Minted, a global community of indie designers that create amazing stationary products approached me for a collaboration. I absolutely fell in love with all their assortment from wedding invitations, holiday cards, baby and children gifting to party decorations. Independent artists and designers are creating beautiful products that we can customise and make our own. I was very impressed how user friendly their website is and how many options you actually have when choosing your products.

I am currently debating between 4 designs that I customised for us. I chose to go with a Photo Christmas card since there is nothing more special then a printed card with a photo of your loved ones on it. I can already imagine our grandmothers faces when they will receive the card and how they will frame it and added to their memory wall.

You can chose the design you want and then you have different colours and font options to customise the card. You can write the text you want that can be in any language you prefer. Once it is saved in your designs, you can update the card as many times as you want before you send it to print. I plan on updating ours with the baby pictures of our newborn baby.

First card I customised, the Gallery Wall Christmas Photo Cards.

And once you saved a photo to your profile you can turn on the option – Find it fast – and then all the products in the category are displayed with your photo already on them. I think this is a brilliant feature since it makes easier to decide on a design once you actually see your photo there.
