It’s no secret I’m a big fan of Minted. From Christmas cards and birthday invitations to nursery artwork and Valentines, they’re my first stop for stationery and artwork. Did you know they also have gorgeous home decor, too?

With Mother’s Day coming quickly, Minted is a great place to find a gorgeous one-of-a-kind gift for the special lady in your life. From fine art prints to photo gifts, there are countless options that make it easy to find something perfect for her!

This year, I love the idea of giving a cute pinboard for Mother’s Day. You can fill it with special mementos: photos of you and kids, ticket stubs and programs, photographs of places you’ve been and love – anything to make her smile when she looks at it. Or, it can just as easily become a beautiful backdrop for a calendar, school newsletters, birthday party invitations and anything else you need to keep track of in order to keep your family organized.

You can choose between 12 sizes, starting from 5”X 7” up to 40”X 54” – it’s easy to find one to fit any space in your home! Minted gives you the option to choose between 10 pre-styled pinboards or customizing your own by choosing the frame and fabric you prefer.

I opted for a custom pinboard and chose a neutral floral pattern that’s perfect for my new office space. Our office is slowly coming together. (If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen a few snaps in my stories.) I have big plans for my pinboard: We’re going old-school Pinterest! Ripping out magazine pages for inspiration, posting contracts, to-do lists and other important papers. There’s something about having a physical spot to store and view inspiration that can’t be beat!

Along with the pinboard, I ordered a couple of pieces of artwork for my office: A photo of Lilly and me, and Tiles of Portugal and Fanciful art prints. All of the art on Minted is original artwork made by independent artists. You can buy it in a variety of sizes. Instead of having them framed, these pictures are going up on my pinboard.

Whether you choose a pinboard or a picture, Minted is a great spot to order a thoughtful, lovely gift for your mother (or yourself!) Is there anything you have your eye on? I’d love to know!
