THEME #1: CHRISTMAS ANIMALS

As temperatures start to fall and the winter chill begins to set in, animals start to prepare for the cold months ahead. Allude to the changing season outdoors with Christmas wall decor depicting reindeer huddled together, a baby fawn dusted in snow, or a winter fox bundled up for warmth. Pair one of these rustic watercolor paintings with additional holiday decorations inspired by Mother Nature such as strands of garland, pine cones, antlers, or a fawn-print Christmas stocking for a classy and coordinated look.

THEME #3: CHRISTMAS TREES

Nothing kicks off the beginning of the holiday season quite like the appearance of a Christmas tree in your house or the town square. In fact, New York City has been hosting a famous tree-lighting ceremony in Rockefeller Center since 1933! While public tree-lighting ceremonies may be put on hold this year, celebrate a little differently by hanging decorative wall art that showcases this staple holiday decor. As the favorite Christmas carol says, “Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree, How lovely are thy branches!”

Choose to have your design printed and framed behind glass or printed on canvas. The choice is yours!

THEME #5: WINTER WONDERLANDS

“I’m dreaming of a white Christmas, just like the ones I used to know.” This timeless lyric instantly transports us all to a landscape freshly blanketed with snow. Conjure up similar imagery through your Christmas wall decor with some of these art pieces showing snow falling over a geometric forest or in an undisturbed thicket of trees that have shed their leaves for the winter. Black and white photography works perfectly when shooting snow as a subject matter due to the dramatic purity of the white snow. For additional landscape options, be sure to browse our full collection of fine art photography.

THEME #6: TYPOGRAPHY

Explore how our artists celebrate the lyrics to popular Christmas carols and iconic names like those of Santa’s reindeer through imaginative and colorful typography techniques. Add some shine to your Christmas wall art by selecting a design printed in luxe gold foil. The glow of red, green, and blue holiday lights will reflect beautifully off the surface of the metallic lettering. If looking for some Santa-themed art, we really like the design resembling a rock band poster broadcasting when Santa will be headlining, whether you have been naughty or nice! For more artwork celebrating creative text manipulation, or to personalize a template with your favorite Christmas carol lyrics, be sure to browse our full collection of typography art.

IF PURCHASING CHRISTMAS ART AS A GIFT IN 2020

Whether purchasing art to enhance your own Christmas wall decor or shopping for gift ideas for close friends and family, you will probably have a few questions before you complete your purchase. We have assembled some quick answers to help you out!

What date should I place my order to ensure I receive my art by Christmas?

Aim to have your Christmas art ordered by December 14th to assure it arrives in time to be placed under the Christmas tree.

Can I compose a special note to be sent with my art gift?

Absolutely! During checkout, we will ask if you would like to add a free gift message. Once you compose your message we will print it out and include it in the packaging. We will also ensure that no pricing receipt is shown for the gift recipient.

How will my recipient know who created their artwork?

Minted’s art is created by independent artists from around the world. When we package our artwork, we will include a special note from the artist that details their hometown, inspiration, and artistic techniques. We believe this detailed information about our artist community will help you or your gift recipient form a closer bond with the artwork that is on their walls. For our limited edition artwork, we will also include a certificate of authenticity that guarantees that your art selection is just one of 350 that will be printed in that size and colorway.
