valentine’s gift: merit badges

When we were scouts long ago, there was nothing so satisfying as getting a merit badge. Now Disorderly Goods has designed a series that would make a lovely gift for child or adult. We’re thinking one or two would make an especially charming Valentine.  Buy one for $10, a few, or all with the Over-achiever 12-pack for $114.00. They’re available at Supermarket.

Here are some favorites:

The Sprout: for growing from adversity

The Dipper: for dreaming big

The Heart: for giving a shit

The Illusionist: for being good with your hands

Zen Stones: for living a life of balance

Happiness Serotonin: serotonin molecule, for finding happiness.

We think they’d also make good Reminder Badges, of things about ourselves that we need to remember, but sometimes forget.
