Children’s personalized stationery

minted children's stationeryDespite having lived in Europe for more than six years now, I still cling firmly to some of my ‘Americanisms’.  Like sending ‘thank you’ notes for all important occasions, making peanut butter & jelly sandwiches for my kids, and relishing silly holidays like Halloween.

My European friends can laugh all they want, but some of these things I’m actually proud of.  Like the ‘thank you’ notes.  I think it’s a really valuable lesson to teach your kids to say thank you, and to encourage this ‘old-fashioned’ type of correspondence.

Minted has just launched a whole new line of personalized children’s stationery with loads of different styles… perfect for saying ‘thank you’ or for just saying ‘hi’.  Your kids will love that their very own name is on there, and you can even choose a style they like too (I chose the whale design for my boys)!

Minted is offering a 25% discount to all Babyccino readers.  Just enter BABYCCINO25 at check-out! (Offer is good for one week, until September 30th.) And please note that Minted is sadly no longer shipping internationally.

I’m a mongrel of various European countries and I seem to get and send many ‘thank you’ cards from various European places too. It has more to do with how well you were brought up and way less than which country you are from. Also, I would never laugh at someone saying to me that they send ‘thank you’ cards and show appreciation.
Though I’m not sure, I’d keep a straight face about the peanut butter &Jelly sandwiches.
