Mother's Day is just around the corner now and if you are looking to get something that's as unique and special as mom is then look no further than Minted.com
Minted is a design marketplace where you can shop from a community of independent artists all in one place. They simply enter their designs and artwork, it gets judged and then the winners are available to buy on the site. As well as some great art you can also shop home decor and stationary.
If none of these take your fancy you can find more lovely art in their art collection and ideas in their mother's day gift section.
When it comes to giving (and receiving) gifts I always favor ones that you can personalize. I think personalization makes it all that little bit more special and you can really let someone know how you feel about them. Minted is a great place where you can do just that. A lot of the gift-oriented art designs are personalizable- you can add your own photos and choose the color scheme and in some add your own text.
I had a play around with one of my favorite designs to show you how easy it is to make it your own.
It doesn't just stop at gifts either. You can choose to personalize your own gift wrap and gift tags too so your gift will look amazing! They also have a selection of cards for any occasion.
They also currently have an event on where you can save 20% on all foil pressed products until the 27th April.
Be sure to get your Mother's Day orders in by the 29th to ensure delivery by Mother's Day.

This weekend just gone we took Calleigh to the Discover the Dinosaurs exhibit which was held in Americas Center in St Louis. I brought the tickets a while back when I saw them on Groupon and knew I had to get them as Calleigh (and myself) are so interested in Dinosaurs. She had been looking forward to it for weeks, every morning asking if we were going to the Dinosaur museum today.
Calleigh is really good with her dinosaurs and can easily tell you a carnivore from a herbivore and which dinosaurs fall into each group. We have a ton of Dinosaur DVD's and books, in fact, for weeks her preferred bedtime story was a Dinosaur fact book haha.
The exhibit was great and we loved walking around and looking at each set up. Calleigh did get a little scared at first, as the dinosaurs moved, but eventually she calmed down and was running about as usual!
After the initial Dinosaur exhibits there was a area full of inflatable slides and play areas for kids. Calleigh's favorite was the Ice Age slide. And she loved getting her face painted!
We had a great time and are hoping that more Dinosaur themed things make their way to St Louis!
