few of you over-achievers out there probably have your holiday shopping all done; presents beautifully wrapped and placed neatly under your sparkling Christmas tree. If you are like me with only the growing anxiety of buying the perfect gift and not a single present actually bought, then listen up my friends!

I am a HUGE fan of personalized gifts. One of my go-tos for kids' birthday gifts are monogrammed beach towels. I suppose I find happiness in knowing it isn't a plastic truck that they will outgrow in a few months. It is something made just for them that they will have for years to come. Who knows, they may even pass it down to their kids some day. Being a graphic artist, I naturally love a great piece of framed art.

I have teamed up with Minted to bring you the best of both worlds, personalization and art, for all of your 2015 gift giving. You can't go wrong with custom framed art. These will hang on the walls of your loved one's homes for years to come. Here are a few of my favorites from Minted.

S I D E  N O T E: Did you know about the "lock in your deal now" option?!!! 
This is something new that Minted is now offering. Obviously custom anything takes a little more time and thought than just clicking the checkout button, so this option is perfect for taking advantage of a sale even if you are unsure of how you want to personalize it at the moment. Simply pick your design, skip personalization, and check out with "buy now, personalize later" engaged. On the topic of sales, Minted just extended it's Cyber Monday deal through today - 20% of holiday cards & 25% off everything else! (Use code CM2015)
