12 Things You Need from Minted (Beyond Invitations and Cards)
You can spend hours and hours just looking at the cards and invitations on Minted. In fact, I’m willing to bet you have. Many times. (I know it was my go-to for my wedding and has never let me down for any stationery need since then.) The site has hundreds of options from independent artists, and a quality and aesthetic that seems unrivaled by its competitors.
In case you needed a reason to spend even more time on the site, though, I decided to round up some surprising, non-paper finds that you might not have realized were available. For example, did you know that Minted sold table linens, stools, and Christmas tree skirts? Take a look.
Fun fact: Clothing for little ones is coming soon!
Wanna hear the cutest thing ever? You can order matching aprons and oven mitts for adults and kids. Adorable, right? The kids’ aprons are sold individually for $28 or with two oven mitts for $42. Adult aprons are $38, and oven mitt and pot holder sets are $26. Of course, all of these are available in the fun, fresh prints that Minted is known for.
2. Table Linens
All of Minted’s fabric designs (of which there are many!) are available as table runners (in various sizes), placemats, and napkins. Luckily, you can narrow down your searches by colors, pattern, and even pattern scale. For example, if you’re looking for placemats that are blue, bold, and geometric, you get this curated list of 44 options.
Minted’s shades come in tons of options — beyond just fabric and colorways. Many are available for chandeliers and table lamps and come in various sizes. They’re not inexpensive, so try my hack to save a bit of money: For my bedroom, I got a bargain base at Target and then splurged on a Minted lampshade that made the whole thing feel extra special.
The thing you need to know about Minted’s throw pillows (aside from the fact that there are many, many options) is that they all come with the fluffiest alternative down insert you’ll ever lay on.
5. Art Shelves
You probably already know that Minted sells all sorts of art from independent artists, but did you know that the brand recently launched a selection of wood and metal art shelves to help you display it all? There’s even an option with clips, which allow you to hang up kid’s artwork or notes to yourself. I think it’d be super useful in a kitchen for an instant (pretty) command center.
Last time I checked, there were more than 800 curtain options listed on the site. But there are actually way more than that because each listing is usually available in a few different colorways and a bunch of sizes. (Just like with the table linens — and actually, all the fabric on Minted — you can narrow down the choices.)
After looking high and low for a cute stall-sized shower curtain, I decided to break traditional rules and got this to hang. It’s been working just fine for a few years now!
Why settle for a generic, brown cork board from an office supply store when you can get one with a fun frame and beautiful fabric? Minted has pre-styled designs (like this one above), or you can create your own custom pinboard by mixing and matching the frame and the fabric. Prices start at $52 and sizing options go all the way up to 40×54 inches.
Technically, these stools (available in small and tall) are part of Little Mint, Minted’s kids’ line, and it’s marketed as a “comfortable crib-side perch for bedtime and an all-purpose seat for the kids.” But I’ve been eyeing one of these to use as a little ottoman in front of my favorite chair. It sure would make for a cozy coffee-sipping setup. There are only three patterns available right now, but I expect more to be added in the near future.
9. Wall Murals
One of the newest launches from Minted, these wall murals are super easy to install and remove, and are downright beautiful. The murals feature unique artwork from Minted’s community of independent artists. They’re printed on panels of premium matte woven material and start at $330 for 6×8.25 feet.
You’ll find way less fabric options when you shop these hampers and storage bins, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Use one of these bins in your pantry to organize random bags of snacks.
11. Felt Garlands
The holidays are coming! You’ll find more than a dozen different options of felt garland on Minted. String some up on your tree or mantel, or do what I do and just put a strand in a bowl that you keep on your dining room table.
After using an old tablecloth as a tree skirt for way too many years (it wasn’t the worst idea I’ve ever had!), I finally treated myself to this reversible tree skirt from Minted. Each one retails for $128 and features two bold, complementary patterns.
