Gratitude Cards

Gratitude Cards is a set of 60 cards to remind us of the many things to be thankful for. 

In a hurry to secure the future, we omit to notice what is already very good. This pack of cards is designed to help us pause in our striving and, for a few moments, take on board some of what we have to be grateful for. A consoling, inspiring corrective to the lessons in cynicism and sourness that the world teaches every day.

Gratitude Cards is a set of 60 cards to remind us of the many things to be thankful for. 

In a hurry to secure the future, we omit to notice what is already very good. This pack of cards is designed to help us pause in our striving and, for a few moments, take on board some of what we have to be grateful for. A consoling, inspiring corrective to the lessons in cynicism and sourness that the world teaches every day.

Nowadays, we are experts at focusing on what is missing from our lives. Often this dissatisfaction serves us well; it keeps us from complacency and boredom. Yet we can also be dragged down by an inability to stop, take stock and recognize what isn't imperfect and appalling. These 60 cards of the Gratitude Set are physical reminders to be grateful what we do have. Packed in a beautiful box, each card features a beautiful still. Great for having these cards casually lying around in the house, or to give to someone to whom you feel the quote applies very much.

Example Cards:



  • There were no outright catastrophes today.

  • Others forget the stupid things we’ve done faster than we do.

  • Other people are usually shyer, sweeter and kinder than we’d anticipated

  • We have managed to learn a few things down the years

  • We don’t have to take ourselves seriously

About The School of Life

Alain de Botton founded The School of Life in 2008. His aim was to make philosophy — long seen as the inaccessible, inauthentic stuff of academies and archives — a functional aspect of modern life. The care with which ancient philosophers thought about their lives remains a valuable antidote to the generalised anxiety of our era.

The school thus posits that ideas of Plato, Aristotle and the Stoics are as relevant to us today as they were in ancient Greece. Even if Epicurus never had social media burnout, understanding his thinking can lead us to a healthier relationship with our phones — and by extension, with one another.

Developing emotional intelligence in the workplace
The working world can feel, at times, to operate with a dog-eat-dog intensity. We are often made to feel anxious or powerless by our jobs. Our colleagues can irritate or undermine, our bosses can demand too much while giving too little, our clients can be rude and difficult to please, and our assets are never quite liquid enough. So it goes.

We began stocking The School of Life’s series on work, gratitude and pleasure as a way of thinking through these issues. We admire these series for their capacity to stimulate reflection, and their ability to give a new perspective on age old problems. At its core, it is a set of strategies for finding meaning in the modern world.

The School of Life has had its own corner in our Amsterdam shop, and we’re proud to be one of their stockists in the Netherlands. You can browse our selection in store or on our web shop online.
