5 Little Ways to Step Up Your Holidays

The holiday season is upon us! It seems like from Halloween to New Years is one party after another. All of these parties and festivities can begin to feel like the same thing over and over again. I find that the littlest things can make the biggest difference when it comes to making your holidays feel unique and exciting. I love to step things up a little bit, details make my heart happy! Here are my favorites ways customize your details and take your holidays to the next level.

I received samples and compensation for this post all opinions are my own.

Napkins: If you are throwing a party, you can make it stand out with details like custom napkins. Details at parties make your guests feel welcomed and your party feel cohesive and well thought out. These foil printed napkins are right on trend, adding a little glam to your party while sending a sweet note to your guests.


Gift Tags: The wrapping of your gift is the first thing people see. It is also the most time consuming part. Add a little personal flair to your wrapping by adding a customized gift tag. No more half used sheets of tags from the store because you only like three of the five designs! Such a cute way to jazz up your presents!


Thank You Notes: When was the last time you got a thank you note? A real, in the mail, handwritten thank you note? In our fast paced world the simple act of saying thank you gets swept under the rug so often. This year take some time to write out your gratitude to those you love. Imagine getting a gorgeous note in the mail, that would make my day. Minted has fantastic foil printed options with lined envelopes, they are amazing.


Custom Stamps: Whether you are sending thank you notes or Christmas cards, you are going to need a postage stamp. The post office has cute ones with santa or wreaths, but wouldn’t you rather send a customized greeting or picture on your stamp?  What a fun way to let people know what is inside their envelope is something special!


The Perfect Christmas Card: I love sending and receiving holiday cards with those we love every year. It is such a fun way to express how thankful you are to have the people you love in your life. In a very virtual world, sending a card in the mail has such a nostalgic feel to it.


Minted has so many gorgeous options, it is really hard to choose one to send out! There are many things I love about their cards but my favorite thing about them is the attention to detail. You can change and personalize layouts, there are always several color schemes of each design, and you can even change the shape of your card. They have options like foil printing or laser cut to really make your card stand out from the pile.

I chose a letterpress card this year. The vintage presses leave behind crisp, beautiful indentations in combination with modern photo printing techniques, resulting in a truly gorgeous, rich, tactile result. They are just amazing.

If you are really hoping to step up your holiday game this year, do it with Minted. They pay attention to all the trends and details so that you don’t have to!

What is your favorite way to step up your holidays?
