We are proud to support Small Business Saturday, which is now in it's 6th year and getting bigger. Originally started in Massachusetts and promoted by American Express, Small Business Saturday is always the Saturday in between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This event is a gentle reminder to support small companies who started by turning their ideas into a business.
Small businesses in the U.S. are classified as having 500 or less employees and are a key component to driving growth in local communities. They contribute not only in taxes but also to the local patchwork, which defines towns and cities across the 50 states.
At Cheeky Mint we believe that life should be fun and we hope you see that in our unique products. We take pride in everything that we sell and are humbled by the overwhelming support and happy customers worldwide. When we started almost 2 years ago, our mission was simple: to ban boring; and since then we have become very proud small business owners. We take immense pride in being able to provide jobs all over to world to people who contribute to our design, manufacturing and shipping processes. Making an impact in local communities is what brings us together and by shopping on Small Business Saturday, YOU are supporting this initiative.
Starting a business is not easy; but with just a little creativity, tremendous passion and hard work we could have never imagined that we would be here today. We are very thankful during this holiday season to continue doing what we love and to you for spending time getting to know us.
Thanks as always for your support!

Summer is over! We can finally get to the best travel season of the year – fall. The crowds have thinned out, the lines are shorter, prices cheaper and the colors out in full force. It’s back-to-school season and we’ve done our homework to come up with the 10 ten cities to check out this fall.
Our deluxe scratch map is wonderful for tracking your travels
Let’s be honest. It can get pretty cold up north. So before the temperatures hit zero, make sure to check out the beautiful city of Montreal. Hit up the following spots for beautiful fall foliage: Mount Royal, Old Port, Parc Jean-Drapeau and the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.
- New York
Whether you head to the city or upstate, New York is full of beautiful colors in the fall. It’s also the perfect place to indulge in apple cider donuts!
When it gets chilly, Amsterdam is the perfect place to indulge in delicious food. The iconic Dutch dish stampoot is just the thing you need to warm you up. This hearty seasonal dish often consists of mashed potatoes, veggies, bacon and smoked sausage of the side.
Paris is always a good idea – especially in the fall. The city is teaming with locals (who are typically on vacation in August) which makes it even more enjoyable to people watch. It’s the perfect chance to grab a cup of hot chocolate from Angelina, a croissant or macarons and enjoy the outdoor parks (Jardin du Luxembourg, Places des Vosges, Jardin des Tuileries etc.) or even head to Versailles.
Croatia is known for its beautiful beaches and crazy yacht week parties. But there’s a cultural side to the country as well. Head to the Istria region for delicious food (especially truffles) and wine. Plitvice Lakes is a national park that is exceptionally beautiful surrounded by fall foliage.
In the autumn, its much easier to appreciate the city’s iconic attractions without battling the crowds. Czech foods, beers and wine suit the chillier weather perfectly as well.
In the fall, Munich is synonymous with Oktoberfest. If you are planning a trip, make your travel arrangements as early as possible as the beer festival draws millions of visitors from all over the world.
October and November tends to be hurricane season in the Caribbean. If you’re willing to take a little bit of a rain risk, you’ll find some of the best deals.
India is not your typical fall foliage destination but the season coincides with Diwali, the country’s biggest celebration. Head to any major city to see firecrackers, parades and street festivities.
October is the sweet spot for visiting Florence and the Tuscany region. You can indulge in all that Florence has to offer without the crowds, making sure to set aside some time for some wine tastings.
And when you get back home, don’t forget to scratch off the place on your deluxe map. Another one off the bucket list!
Fall is here. And while we love PSLs, apple cider donuts and falling leaves, we aren't ready to let go of our favorite parts of summer. Here are a few ways to keep that summer vibe going all year around:
1. Make a delicious glass of lemonade
All you need is some fresh lemons, water, ice and some sugar. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water. Bring to a boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Allow the liquid to cool to room temperature, cover and refrigerate until chilled. Squeeze in the lemon juice, sugar syrup, water and ice. Grab your favorite glass and enjoy!
2. Wear a beach-y perfume
Couple of classics: D&G Light Blue, Beach by Bobbie Brown and CK One Summer.
3. Continue wearing your favorite tank top to the gym. Warning: these are sure to draw attention!
4. Listen to a tropical playlist on Spotify
5. Using bright or tropical accents at home
Continue using accents that have bright or tropical designs to encourage a carefree summer vibe in your home all year around. Check out our favorite pillow with major travel vibes.
Follow these simple tips and tricks to ensure you surround yourself with those happy summer vibes! #cheekymint
