Gifting Art with Minted


Valentine's Day is around the corner, as I'm sure you know from all of the pink and red filled candy aisles at the grocery store, and many people are starting to think about what to gift loved ones for cupid's holiday. Nick and I have never been much for V-Day gifts or even a special dinner (other than heart-shaped pizza), but if we do exchange gifts, I want it to be personal and meaningful.

When Minted reached out to us about their Valentine's Day collection and giving art as a gift, I couldn't believe that it hadn't crossed my mind before. No one ever really thinks to give art as gifts, but as new-ish homeowners, I just love that idea so much. We have so many blank spaces to fill in our home and I'm sure others do too. The idea of giving someone a piece of art that they can hang and reflect on for years to come is so much more meaningful than a box of candy or a teddy bear.

We're in the midst of a few projects right now, like the bedroom, dining area, and guest room, and we're definitely going to need beautiful art for each space. For Valentine's Day, Nick and I are each going to pick out a Minted print for each other - I'm excited to see what we pick! (We'll update this post once our prints arrive so you can see too!)

Below are some of my favorite individual art pieces from the Minted Valentine's Day collection:

Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha - This would be great in a gallery wall or above a desk, perhaps to brighten someone's work day.
Forty-Six - If you know my obsession with keys, this one will come as no surprise to you.
Pretzel - Pop-art pretzel, what's not to love?
French Dreams - I know so many people that have visited Paris recently - this would be perfect for them.
Shining Statement - This floral piece is so gorgeous. It would be pretty above a bed!
Summer Tanagers - I love abstract pieces that you can work into any room or gallery well. This watercolor print is so cool.

By the way, one of the best things about Minted is that you can order your prints already framed, which makes this gifting process easier than ever. If you're looking for something super personalized, Minted offers a Minimalist Quote Keepsake, where you can completely customize a print with a photo and quote of your choice. You can learn more about this and all of Minted's awesome Valentine's Day gift ideas here (I really love the custom map prints too!)


From now until the 30th you can take 20% off all foil Valentines cards and gifts, and 15% off all other Valentines cards and gifts with code BEMINE.
