National Parks Postcards

Just because summer is coming to a close doesn’t mean the parks are. There is still time to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the National Parks Service—especially through these imaginative postcards! 

A handful of designers at Anderson Design Group based in Nashville, created an award-winning National Parks poster series featuring iconic scenes from all 59 parks. Crafted with a healthy dose of early 20th century-inspired design, the poster series—turned postcard series—provides an illustrative look at the parks’ natural calling cards such as the famed balanced rock at Big Bend.

Whether you’ve made it to all the parks, or only a couple in the last decade, these cards will give you all the cred you need for the centennial celebration. Not to mention they make a surprisingly fun gift, and as you know, we like gifts at VelvetCrate!

More than just a postcard, use these beautiful designs to decorate a nursery or office, keep in touch with family and pen pals, use as an invitation to your next camping trip, or inspire an adventure themed holiday with these as gift tags. –Katy Ibsen

The Best Granola — Early Bird Foods

Posted on July 28, 2017 | 0 Comments

Early Bird Foods Granola | VelvetCrate | Curated Gift Packages | Granola in Brooklyn

We're big fans of Early Bird Granolas. From Jubilee (dried cherries, pistachios, and pumpkin seeds) to Choc-A-Doodle-Doo, (decadent dark chocolate and coconut), their flavor combinations are truly magnificent. 

This summer, we've included Kiss My Oats, which is made with maple and oats. It's been a best-seller in our Celebrate curated gift package and it's also available for you to include when you Create-A-Crate. 

Early Bird Granola is artisanal granola made in Brooklyn and we can't get enough of it! We know she'll enjoy it by the handful.
