Greeting cards are so passé. E-cards? Totally tacky. Singing telegrams work only in the movies, and skywriting is bad for the environment.
How in the world are you supposed to get your message across?
Well, we’re spilling the beans. The style-setting Japanese have done it again, creating the perfect vehicle for all your well wishes: the message bean.
Housed in an adorable aluminum can, each already planted bean is laser-printed with a message (Thank You, Love, Good Luck, or Happy Birthday) and a complementary image (the Japanese character for thanks, a heart, four-leaf clover, or music note). The recipient simply peels off the foil top, adds water to the soil, and voilà! A week later the bean sprouts and the message is revealed.
And that’s just plain old cool.
Cool beans, of course.
