Neighborhood Appreciation Cards are a fun and easy way to connect with your community and spread a little kindness.

Choose from twenty-five prompts for exploring your neighborhood ("What is something you enjoy on a familiar path?") and twenty-five friendly messages for spreading good cheer to your neighbors ("Keeping this many beautiful plants alive deserves an award"). Complete with an illustrated guidebook, these cards are a sweet way to discover the magic and beauty that exists right outside your door!

FUN ACTIVITY: Use these cards to broaden your perspective and gain a new appreciation for your community or neighborhood.
  • Thumb through these cards before heading out for the day (or take the whole deck with you), and experience your daily routine a little differently.
  • Spread good vibes by leaving notes for your neighbors.
  • Turn the card deck into a wholesome scavenger-hunt game with friends and family.

A DELIGHTFUL WAY TO PRACTICE MINDFULNESS & GRATITUDE: These cards are a great way to tap into the present moment and find joy in your surroundings. We can often overlook things we experience daily, but if we take a moment to find our curiosity again, we can see our world with a new sense of appreciation.

Specializing in whimsical and colorful work meant to brighten up the gloomiest of days, this card deck was created as an extension of Culbertson’s mission to connect people through the magic of curiosity.
