The countdown to Christmas is on and every year I make the same pledge to myself, get started early and take the time to find those unique gifts that deliver the authentic oohs and aahhs.
I’m not going to lie, it can be a daunting task to come up with the perfect gift especially when your scrambling from store-to-store wondering what your friends and family members really want or need.
This year, I’m changing the way I think about gift giving. A part of getting older is watching those around us begin their own lives, whether this is the start of a new and exciting career, a marriage or the birth of a first child. Choosing a gift that incorporates a special milestone in one’s life makes it all the more meaningful. Not to mention, it completely narrows down gift options for you to pick from.
Today, I collected a fun roundup of trendy and sentimental gifts from one of my favourite online shops, Minted. I categorized gift ideas for some of those special milestone moments.
Minted Holiday Gift Guide
One of the most exciting parts of being newly married is moving into your first home and decorating together. If you’re looking to give a gift that is both creative and practical, give the couple something special to use in their home!
Commemorate their love by framing the most important part of the ceremony, their wedding vows, or maybe you have a great wedding photo of the happy couple. Share the love with this customizable frame.
Even if the couple has a fully furnished home, odds are, their dinning room accessories could always be kicked up a notch. Mix things up a bit with these super trendy reversible placemats and/or dinner napkin set.
It’s a very special time when your loved ones start a family. Treat them to something they’ll treasure!
From heartwarming, personalized artwork (with a variety of frame options to choose from) to charming little accessories for the baby’s nursery. These are some gifts that you’ll be mighty proud to give.
Treat the little ones on your list to presents they’ll use again and again. Whether this little kiddo likes to read, do art projects, put puzzles together, help create a special area just for them to do what they love.
Graduation is an important moment in a person’s life. It signals the end of an era and the beginning of something new. Help the grad in your life celebrate with a gift that documents all their happy memories with this framed Heart Snapshot Mix or keep them motivated with their favourite inspirational quote.
