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 drab city apartment that is too cramped to even allow for a windowsill. The only scenario in which we could think of this being awkward: wishing someone luck on their fertility treatments.
We all know we’re supposed to send fancy-schmancy invitations for those moments that really count, like engagements parties, weddings, and baby showers. But what about BBQs? Don’t they deserve more than word-of-mouth attention? This summer stock up on quaint invitations from Flowers in May, so all your friends will know you mean business when it comes to your secret BBQ sauce. And if playing hostess isn’t your vibe, then send your friends handwritten notes on Flowers in May stationery to catch up.
‘Tis the season to send holiday cards to all the people you haven’t been in touch with since last year’s “Season’s Greetings!” And while a physical card sent in the mail is nice, we like The Merry Newsinator, a cheeky take on those corny family newsletters that had their heyday in the ’90s (“Middle daughter Catherine got all A’s on her report card this term! … We’ll be taking a trip out to California next spring to visit cousin Billy and his family.”) Just fill in the blanks, check a few boxes, and a silly-yet-somehow-informative newsletter gets spit out, ready to be emailed to your 472 closest Facebook friends. Check out mine after the jump. Keep reading »
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 “Evolution of the Muff.” Think you can guess what’s in store for the nether regions today? See the whole poster after the jump!

Need just the right card to express your emotions on your cousin’s trip to rehab? Amy Winehouse has your back. The Sun is reporting that Winehouse is coming out with a line of gift wrap and greeting cards using her famous lyrics. (That’s a fake mock up card, to the left. )I guess that just because she’s on permanent vacay down in St. Lucia doesn’t mean her “people” can’t make money off of her—Amy’s publishers are rolling out “Rehab” wrapping paper (the song chorus will be printed continuously) followed by “Back To Black” and “You Know I’m No Good” greetings cards. Her publishers are claiming: “The Amy-branded cards are classy too. ‘You Know I’m No Good’ is best for heartfelt apologies and ‘Back To Black,’ with an appropriate wreath, will be the respectful response to a bereavement.” Now, who the hell will actually buy them? Those with friends currently doing a stint in rehab? [The Sun] Keep reading »
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.

I forgot my best friend’s birthday two years in a row once. I felt absolutely awful about it and resolved never to overlook it again.
