Go Minted! It’s your birthday! And a special discount to celebrate.

Happy Birthday, Minted! And a special Minted discount to celebrate!

We’ve all been huge fans and supporters of Minted long before they were a Cool Mom Picks sponsor, so it seems hard to believe that they are turning seven! It’s no surprise their ever-growing collection of stationery, invitations, and gifts designed by indie artists around the world are so popular with parents, including us. They really are some of the most beautifully designed options that we see anywhere.

So in honor of the big Minted birthday celebration (aw, seven is such a fun year), they’re offering a special store-wide discount on everything.

We’ve gone through and picked some of our own personal favorites on the site just for kids and babies. Snatch up now while you can get them even more affordably. Happy shopping!

– Don’t miss a fantastic discount below! –

For Parents of Babies

Birth Announcements

As if your sweet newborn isn’t eye-catching enough, we love the cool shapes that go beyond the typical rectangle birth announcement.

Because one photo of that sweet new baby is just not enough, you’ll find tons of photo collage options — but isn’t this heart design amazing? Perfect for framing too.

If you like something a little extra special, we just love that they’ve added gold foil options to birth announcements. It makes a simple design like this one just a little more sophisticated.

 

Baby Shower invitations

It used to be that baby shower invitations were always super cutesie, which hey, we get it…a baby is coming! Gingham! But we love how so many of the Minted designers, like Erin Deegan, give invitations such a modern, artful twist offering more options to more kinds of parents-to-be.

For a couple’s shower, these vintage coasters are so clever. And perhaps useful? At least after the baby is born.

 

bookworm baby shower invitations by 24th and dune at minted

We’re loving that Minted offers baby shower invitations celebrating the various kinds of celebrations people are throwing these days. With the popularity of baby book showers — one of our very favorite themes — this bookworm invite made us smile.

 

For Parents of Kids

Party invitations

There’s an invitation for every kind of party, so whether you’re hosting a movie night, or a magician party, or just having a regular old sleepover (Godspeed), there are so many fun options to browse. Scrolling through the designs might even spark a party theme idea if you’re stuck.

 

vintage rail children's birthday party invitations by smudge design at minted

We’ve featured this vintage inspired invitation before as a favorite. We’re so taken by the cool shape which definitely makes it stand out amidst the sea of four-corner cards.

With all those cute photos of your kids sitting on your computer or smartphone, why not turn them into their party invitation? This one takes the whole chalkboard art theme that’s so popular and makes it into a sophisticated but fun invitation for a kid’s party.

 

Stationery + Thank you notes

We can’t get enough paper goods for ourselves, so it’s no surprise we’re infatuated with Minted’s line of personalized stationery for kids, which make a lovely, affordable gift that will actually get used.

 

flannel thanks children's personalized stationery by allison metcalfe at minted

flannel thanks children’s personalized stationery | allison metcalfe

Admittedly thank-you cards might be more of a gift for the parents than for the kids (one less thing for us to do!), but we love this hilarious design that our kids will look for excuses to send. And in our experience, kids can never have too many thank-you cards.

 

word bubble children's personalized stationery by alethea and ruth at minted

We really dig the idea of personalizing a thank you card with the child’s photo on it, especially for baby shower gifts. Plus, if you’ve got a child who isn’t old enough to write well just yet, she can just draw a picture and you’re suddenly sending a very special keepsake.

 

Room Decor + Journals

What a fun, affordable little gift for your young artists, whether they’ve actually got their own mini studio, or if you’re like us and their room doubles as one. Whether you know it or not. Oy.

 

imaginarium room decor signs by erica krystek at minted

imaginarium room decor signs | erica krystek

This is such a creative door sign for any girl or boy who loves reading, science, robots and other geekery. Maybe even reading about robots? We could name a few kids like that.

 

oh the places day planner, notebook, or address book by jennifer wick at minted

oh the places day planner, notebook, or address book | jennifer wick

You’ll find no shortage of cool journals at Minted, but with summer almost here, we think the idea of a travel journal for kids is a pretty awesome end-of-year or off-to-camp gift.

 

it's raining day planner, notebook, or address book by faiths designs at minted

it’s raining day planner, notebook, or address book | faiths designs

We have our own big girls in mind with this sweet notebook, as they head off to sleepaway camp this summer. Such a thoughtful gift to tuck into your camper’s trunk so they can collect addresses, document adventures, and keep secrets.
