Can you all believe we are almost in full holiday mode? I’ve chatted about this a few times previously, we try to keep the holidays as low stress and casual as possible. Once we had Zain we decided to start spending the holidays in our own home with our little family. We had always traveled to one family home or the other prior and thought it was time we started making our own memories with the kids at home! We will usually travel before or after to see grandparents and celebrate the holidays with extended family and that has worked great for us.
Luckily, Trevor’s parents are just 3 hours away and my brother just 4 1/2 so road trips are easy and pretty quick. As you all know, I’m a long time fan or Minted and am so excited to be partnering with them for today’s post. We rely and cherish so many things from the brand! From my kid’s clothing labels (you all have also loved them!) to the bean bag chairs we bought them for Christmas a few years ago, the art around our house all the way to our travel bags!
If you aren’t familiar with the brand, they carry so many amazing designs from their community of 16,000 independent artists and almost everything can be personalized which is such a special touch. Several of their holiday gifts were submitted by you all when I inquired about gift ideas for parents and in-laws. The biggest hits were the personalized calendar with grandkids pictures and the silhouettes!
Personally, I love their Weekender and Dopp Kit especially if you have travel coming up! The designs are beautiful and it’s the perfect size for me to take on a weekend trip with the kids. The bag is so roomy and easy to wipe off, I can fit all of their stuff easily. I also love the larger size of the Dopp Kit, I use it for Zahra’s diaper needs and the kids ointments and medicine so it’s easily accessible while on the road. The weekender comes with a shoulder strap if you prefer that but I tend to carry mine by the handles or on my shoulder.
Honestly, they carry so many things that would make a great gift and if you have any questions please feel free to reach out. They also sent over an AMAZING code for y’all but it doesn’t last long so be sure to take advantage! Use code ‘SHAHEENGIFTS‘ for 20% all holiday gifting!
