Longtime readers of this blog know how much I love the site Minted, a San Francisco-based company that offers a range of gifts–from holiday cards to stationery gifts to home decor–using either your own photos and the beautiful designs of independent artists. There is something for every budget here, and so many options for customization (such as various sizes for art prints and photo gifts, or custom details on your holiday cards). Scroll down to see 3 Minted products I have personally ordered this Black Friday as holiday gifts, and bookmark this post so that you can take advantage of these Black Friday deals at Minted, too:

These are my 3 picks:

Heart Snapshot Mix Foil-Pressed Photo Art Print
. Don’t know what to do with all those photos of your kids on your iPhone? Fill this heart with them and hang them on the wall.


Custom House Letterpress Portrait Art House Letterpress Art
. A sweet house-warming (or house-parting) gift.


What Matters Most Holiday Photo Cards
.  Minted uses luxe paper which is very important for paper-philes like me. Spoiler alert: This is the card I am sending this year.

Head over to Minted to get great deals on your holiday cards and cross a bunch of gifts off your list in one easy step!

Tea Collection Black Friday Event

Please note that this post contains affiliate links and I may earn a small commission if purchases are made through these links.  Please also note that sale prices do not necessarily apply site-wide.  


I know that many readers of this blog swear by Tea Collection year after year for their kids’ wardrobes. I did, too, until my kids both outgrew the sizes.  But I still like to check out its internationally-inspired collections each season–this Fall/Winter, you’ll see designs inspired by the Scottish highlands.

This week is a great time to shop Tea Collection because today through Saturday, November 25th, its Black Friday Event features plenty of clothing on sale for $15 and under. Also, many of Tea’s popular mix-and-match playsets are on sale, too, like this one:

A Scots Tradition Set (on sale $125, regularly $144; you’ll also find individual items for sale site-wide for $15 or less). This set is inspired by the namesake locomotive which is an express train running from Edinburgh to London. 416x416-126573

You don’t need a coupon code; just head over to Tea Collection by this Saturday to enjoy the deals…and (spoiler alert) stay tuned for even more deals at Tea Collection that I’ll announce later in the week.

Personalized Wood Photo Boxes

h_woodbox_multiple o_large_woodbox_depths h_woodbox_wedding_falsebottomI’d been looking for a wooden keepsake box that could be personalized with a photo and was happy to find these wood boxes at White House Custom Color after searching for a while. As you can see, these work really well as keepsake boxes for a new baby, wedding, or just about any special occasion. They are available in different sizes and with different add-ons such printed or engraved lids, but the base price starts at $25 plus shipping. Check them out at WHCC.

7764455c660c70ca427fa2c52b95d9f5This Girls Candy Cane Dress at Chasing Fireflies may be my favorite girls’ dress this holiday season.  It boasts a modern, photo-realistic pattern of candy canes on a trendy scuba-like fabric. The styling, though, is all classic–gathered waist, back zip, and cap sleeves. It’s available in sizes 2T-8 for $99 at Chasing Fireflies.

Psst! Just found a coupon code–which is rare for Chasing Fireflies. Use “CFJolly” for 30% off site-wide (not bad at all!) now through 11/26.

Best Holiday Photo Cards at Minted (Plus 15% Off Your Order)

It’s almost Thanksgiving which means it’s time to think holiday cards! I’ve ordered my holiday cards from Minted for several years now, and for good reasons:

  1. I am a paper snob and I love Minted’s superb paper quality and high-quality contemporary designs.
  2. Minted offers discounts and free perks like recipient addressing (which I took advantage of this year–what a time-saver.)
  3. Customer service is exceptional–this year Minted tweaked the font size on my card to look even better–free of charge.
  4. There are many types of holiday cards & greetings available including  “Happy Holidays” photo cards, Christmas photo cards, Hanukkah photo cards, and even non-photo holiday cards for the purists.

PLUS you will get 15% off your Minted order via this link–then just use the code “BEMERRY” at checkout (valid through 11-21-17; I will update this post with subsequent codes!).
