Each of the ten card decks comes with 11 graphic cards—along with plenty of insight into the positive thoughts that every faith can bring.
What to get the seriously green fingered for Christmas? Well we bet they haven’t ever received a gift like this before – this Reindeer poo in a box is rich in nutrients for flower beds and has the added bonus of a much less pungent aroma than the usual animal fertiliser. To give a further nordic vibe to gardens, christmas tree seeds are interspersed in the droppings, so it’s a gift that’ll keep on growing for next year’s festive season. Extra bonus points for seeing their faces when they unwrap it on Christmas morning…. £6, Natural History Museum

A collaboration between art directors Tomonori Saito, Shohei Sawada, and confectioner Motohiro Inaba, the Shinan-ji Temple Rock Garden doubles as a collection of sweet snacks.
This edible rock garden is made of black sesame cubes that are shaped like rocks, while the sand is actually a bed of sugar. However, the wooden rake in the set cannot be eaten.
In an age of picture-perfect interior design, best-selling author Mary Randolph Carter celebrates her highly personal and creative approach to decor, illustrating how to live stylishly with the many items you want to treasure forever.
This is a personal study which asks 20 individuals to share their unique collections and asks them to explain how and why they chose to surround themselves with these things.

This stand-out packaging by Luís Mendonça in collaboration with Rui Mendonça for Alkymist’s soap collection is inspired by the typical Portuguese sheepherders. The women pictured on the soaps are the actual women who have collected the fruits (lemon, apple, orange and fig) to give these handcrafted soaps their fruity aromas. Same goes for the milk used to create the soap. There range includes cow, goat, donkey and sheep milk soaps.
These realistic photographs on the packaging create an immediate connection with the brand. via trendland
