In this paper we provide several characterizations of Minkowski sets, i.e. closed, possibly unbounded, convex sets which are representable as the convex hulls of their sets of extreme points. The equality between the relative boundary of a closed convex set containing no lines and its Pareto-like associated set ensures the Minkowski property of the set. In two dimensions this equality characterizes the Minkowski sets containing no lines.
