Most people will remember and appreciate the gesture more if the gift has a personal touch. Select something handmade and unique, like a work of art, for that "I chose this just for you" feeling that comes from knowing the recipient and what they like.

For those who want to avoid the hassle of personalization but still want to give their loved ones something special for the holidays, we've compiled few of our favorite Minted Gifts to help you out.

Best Gifts from Minted for Everyone

Several of the works featured here come from Minted's newest marketplace, Direct from Artist, where artists and artisans from all over the world sell one-of-a-kind paintings, sculptures, mixed media works, and textiles. Any of the items from Minted below would make excellent keepsakes.

Luxe Snap Tote

If your giftee takes public transportation to and from work every day, she can never have enough tote bags. Anda Safta, a Portuguese surface pattern designer and printmaker, created this chic option, which features a durable cotton fabric and comfortable leather handles, perfect for everything from a trip to the grocery store to a weekend getaway. It's roomy enough to fit a laptop (useful! ), it's based on the linocuts of a well-known French post-Impressionist (chic! ), and it can be personalised with a leather label foil-embossed with the receiver's name (cute!).

Good Night Moon and Stars Personaliazable Pillow

This one-of-a-kind pillow, created by New Jersey-based artist and designer Patrice Horvath, is covered in sparkling stars and a crescent moon that smiles down on the name of your choice, promising a restful night's sleep. The down-alternative insert and the relatively neutral colour palette make this a great present for a baby's room or a young child's bedroom. I guarantee their parents will think you're crazy. Shop now.

Coal Black Diamond with Funnel

Ceramic artist and designer Giselle Hicks created this hand-pinched vessel that is both a work of art in its own right and a functional vase for displaying cut flowers. The black opaque glaze is striking, and if you look closely you can even make out the artist's fingerprints in the clay. Shop now.

Custom Silhouette Art

That will quickly become their cherished treasure. Users can upload a profile shot of their child or pet and have it transformed into a modern heirloom by the artisans at Minted. You can get a custom silhouette printed in any of several colours using either standard ink or foil or letterpress. A gift like this is one that will be remembered for a very long time. Shop now.

Indie Photo Calendar

With a custom calendar featuring their favourite photos and noting all their important occasions and family birthdays, you can encourage your loved ones to make the most of every day (and keep on top of their commitments). This basic option comes in two sizes and three colour schemes from designer Heather Cairl, and it has chic rounded corners, spiral binding, and high-quality paper. You can highlight upcoming events and include up to five photos per page layout. As a thoughtful present, it would be appreciated by anyone, but it would be especially meaningful for someone celebrating a wedding, anniversary, graduation, or a significant birthday. Shop now.
