Sending unsolicited advice may be frowned upon, but these unusual cards from artist Illan Shamir's Advice from Nature series are sure to be appreciated by the recipient! The front of each card pairs a colorful illustration with seven gentle life suggestions: "Stand out in a crowd"
(on Advice from a Cardinal), "Appreciate long winter nights"
(Polar Bear), "Surround yourself with beauty"
(Evergreen), "Dive into life"
(Penguin), "Avoid meltdowns"
(Snowman), "Keep a sense of wonder"
(Santa Claus). Printed on high-quality textured paper in the USA, the cards open to colorful interior scenes upon which to write a personalized holiday greeting. The set of six 5"x7" cards—with envelopes that read "Honor the Earth. Honor yourself. Live your true nature"
on the back—are 100% replanted (meaning new trees are planted for all the paper used).
