Greetings That Will Grow On You

For when flowers are too much and a Chia Pet is inappropriate, choose the Postcarden, a mailable pop-up greeting card/desk garden. Each 3D cityscape comes with a packet of watercress seeds, allowing the recipient to sprinkle them into the card’s crevices, water, and watch the greenery grow. Perfect for cheering up someone’s workspace or dra…

The History Of The Muff

One of the reasons people are obsessed with hair is because it’s something you can instantly change and it always grows back (barring unfortunate baldness issues). When it comes to the vagine, we’ve been less than enthusiastic about following trends and changing it up, yet remain hopelessly obsessed. This poster by shopA is called “Evolutio…

Crave: TweeCards

Life is full of moments when you just don’t know what to say. Like when a friend loses her job (or gets one), ages another year, or saves your ass at a work meeting. In these and plenty of other instances, an email saying, “Happy birthday!” or “You rock!!!!” doesn’t cut it, no matter how…

Cards For The Incarcerated

There are currently more than 2 million people in America’s jails and prisons, and they celebrate birthdays, Valentine’s Day, and New Year’s just like the rest of us.
