Say a Little Prayer provides a fresh, modern means of relating to the spiritual in our fast-paced world. Uniting schools of thought and spirituality from across history and geography, world-renowned creative director Giovanni Bianco presents ten colorful card sets connected with ten spiritual traditions: Brazilian Candomblé, Buddhism, Catholicism, Confucianism, Hinduism, Judaism, Kabbalah, Islam, Protestantism, and Shinto. 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.

Gift Idea : Reindeer Poo in a box

A10581-poo-in-a-box-pub4-1024x1024

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.

Back to the essential : new range of soaps Portugal

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

Basically Joulies are intelligent thermodynamic, non-toxic materials, shaped as coffee beans that serve two very useful purposes: firstly they cool your hot coffee down, up to 3 times faster than normal by absorbing the heat and secondly they help to keep your coffee warm by releasing this absorbed energy – all pretty clever stuff and they can be used in tea, hot chocolate or any other hot drink too.
