Birthday Playing Cards

It's always a hard task to find the perfect birthday gift! You want to do something special and give your loved one a gift they will actually treasure. In other words: when iTunes giftcards won't do the trick. These days it's all about unique, personal and creative gifts. So when we stumbled upon the "One special deck of cards" project of graphic designer Pieter Boels, we knew it was perfect ILB material!

The concept? A fancy deck of cards with customized prints. No spades, hearts, diamonds or clubs here! The traditional cards are replaced with gift cards the birthday girls/boy can use throughout the year. By picking one every week, it's a gift that keeps on giving!

One week you'll have a Breakfast Deluxe, the other week you'll go City Hopping. It's also very convenient when you know that there are 52 cards in a deck, just like there are 52 weeks in a year. You're assured of a surprise all year long!

Pieter created this project on a friends demand. That's why the text on the back of the cards and on the box says 'Philippe loves Caroline'. Ain't That The Cutest Darn Thing? But we would love see this concept go into production! We know we would buy it.
