Minted has it all! Since they feature designs by indie designers, the selections are always fresh and new. There are MANY more beautiful designs than the ones shown here -- it was so hard to pick.

To enter to win, leave a comment answering this question: what is your favorite road trip song?

In High School, my answer would have definitely been Bonnie Tyler's Total Eclipse of the Heart. On our last trip, though, we were jamming to Adele's Rolling in the Deep. I think it might actually be impossible not to rock out to her stunning voice. And of course, there's always the old standby -- Justin Bieber's Baby.

You have until Friday [4.22] at noon ET to leave a comment!

Mr Binder said...

My favorite road trip song is More Than Words by Extreme -- singing those harmonies on the highway, oh man!

TheBlackRider said...

Pick me, pick me! All those change of address cards we are going to need to announce the new house. Love to Ben and the kids. And tell Ben that his guitar chops are formidable.

Love road trips! My go to sing-a-long song is Callin' Baton Rouge by Garth Brooks. But if my best friend is in the car, instead of my husband, it's any song on Celine Dion's A Decade of Hits.

Elisabeth said...

Oooh, I'll definitely get in on that one!! Right now my favorite song to rock out in the car to is Cee Lo, Forget You--my kiddos love it, too. Thank you, censorship:). John Denver's Country Road is a great old standby, too.

i love winding road by bonnie somerville. it's on the garden state soundtrack which is a definite on a road trip. and, anything james taylor or U2.

Ashley Biermann said...

I would have to say my favorite road trip song is Beautiful Day by U2! Shout out to Julie Perry for posting this give away on FB :)

Anna Louise said...

Wow, that's a tough one, so here are three that come to mind: Don't Stop Believin' by Journey-- that's always a crowd pleaser,
Livin' on a Prayer by Bon Jovi,
You Are the Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne

Anne said...

I have always loved Proud Mary by Ike and Tina Turner...great road trip song - even if it is about "rolling on the river!"

Bret Oliver said...

Anything by U2. Boy do I remember Eclipse of the Heart, though! Also, with my dad, we had some Sting, Beatles, and Shakira when we used to take road trips to Mx in HS.

sboone said...

That's a tough one. Slugs and Bugs with kiddos in tow. Michael Jackson or Beach Boys by myself. Everything looks awesome!

Alex said...

Hands down: Def Leopard, Pour Some Sugar on Me

Rhian said...

This would be put to wonderful use for our wedding invitations! My favorite roadtrip song is also my favorite karaoke song and my dream wedding song...Faithfully by Journey!!!

Allyson said...

All time favorite - Elevators by outkast. Good groove music that goes great with cruising.

Not Just A Mommy! said...

Our favorite road trip song is 'Bohemian Rhapsody' by Queen. We love how it starts off so soft and sad and then starts rockin' out!

Kater said...

Here I Go Again by Whitesnake always makes a road trip better.

Kit said...

ooo, this is exciting, Alston!
I love Sheryl Crow "Every day is a winding road".
Also Alison Krauss, the album, "Baby Now that I've found you" reminds me of driving with my honey on our honeymoon...good times.

JenNist said...

Love Sweet Home Alabama! And love Minted too! This could really help with our thank you cards for the wedding :)

My favorite road trip song is Sugar Magnolia by the Grateful Dead. An oldie but goodie!

Camille said...

I LOVE Vengaboys with Boom Boom Boom - it always starts a road trip right!
I love Minted - they have a discount on Zulily right now also!!!

Todd & Jess said...

My favorite road trip song is Jackson Brown's "Running on Empty". Perfect for driving through any great American landscape.

CP said...

Definitely "Heads, Carolina. Tails, California." Great road trip lyrics:
Heads, Carolina Tails, California.
Somewhere greener, somewhere warmer.
Up in the mountains, down by the ocean.
Where? It don't matter, as long as we're goin'
Somewhere together. I've got a quarter.

Cindy P.
Heads, Carolina Tails, California.

Shannon Morrison said...

pick me!! i need birth announcements! favorite road trip song is probably stone temple pilots interstate love song.

Heather said...

I have never thought about a favorite road trip song. Hm.... I guess I don't take enough road trips. BUT, I want to enter, so I'll say Andrew Peterson's Far Country or World Traveler. Either of those.

Natalie said...

So many to choose from but I find myself belting out to D'yer Mak'er from Led Zeppelin on every road trip!

TheBlackRider said...

Oops, missed that little road trip song bit. No contest. Tom Waits' "Filipino Box Spring Hog". Augie and Margot rock it!
