There’s something very special about the gifting process. It starts with a thought. As you think about the people you love and care about, you also think about what they like, what would make them happy, and how you can be a part of that happiness. What can I give them that will bring joy?
To inspire your thought process, here are some really great gifts that are sure to be a hit.
6 Unique Gift Ideas
Personalize a big milestone
Is someone in your life celebrating a big anniversary, birthday, or other important milestone? Commemorate it in a special way with a unique photo gift.
I especially fell in love with this gorgeous 40 Wall Art Print from Minted. My parents-in-law are celebrating 40 years of marriage this year and this is just perfect.
You can find all kinds of unique photo prints, including big milestone years like 5, 18, and 80 in the Minted photo gift center.
Capture quotes (quote journal)
One of my very favorite possessions is my kids quote journal. (Read about how one works here.)
Basically it’s a simple journal that parents, grandparents, and teachers can keep to capture all of the memorable things kids say. Quote journals make the best teacher gifts!
The thing I love about all Minted products, personalized notebooks included, is that they are designed by unique artists from all over. Check out all the gorgeous notebook designs available.
I can only imagine the things an elementary school teacher hears in the course of a day. How cool would it be for a teacher to jot down a quote or two a day and then be able to look back on them over the years.
Accessories for the chef and sous chef
I mean, come on. These cute, pint-sized bakers are ready to make cookies!
All designed by independent artists, these personalized aprons make the sweetest gift.
Check them out! You can even personalize them with a free custom embossed tag.
Mom’s favorite gift
Every year, there’s only one thing my mom ask for for Christmas and that is a photo calendar. I love them too.
It’s so fun to look at each month and anticipate the next. This way our month is family-focused.

The kids’ tees are my favorite!

If someone on your list likes to entertain, Minted has a lot of fun options like dinner napkins and cocktail napkins.
These come in a set of 6 and are truly lovely and great quality.

A few other good ideas for the hostess/girlfriend/sister is personalized stationary, Catch-All Pouch Sets from Minted, and my personal favorite…these insanely cute personalized stockings. I’m dying over them!
