Give a Work of Art (That’s Also a Gift Card)

Gift-buying time is here and your list keeps getting longer. Panic sets in as your shopping options fade in the rearview mirror. And you’ve been resisting gift cards because they’re, well, gift cards.

Resist no more.

Limited Edition Holiday Gift Card

Whole Foods Market® has teamed up with artist, Jason Middlebrook to create a beautiful gift card you’ll feel proud to give. It’s made with sustainably harvested Nordic birch wood (yes, wood!), conceived and designed by the artist and produced as a limited edition for the holidays.

Beautifully Convenient

Getting this gift card is easy—just go into one of our stores or go online. Load the card up with your desired dollar amount, tuck it into the cool colorful card carrier and you’re set. Your shopping will be done in no time. A great option for hard-to-shop-for loved ones, it pairs well with a bottle of wine or other foodie gift. Get one for everybody on your list! Then get a few extras for those inevitable last-minute gifts. This little work of art makes a great stocking stuffer and fits nicely into a holiday card for easy mailing.

Your Card, His Canvas

Artist Jason Middlebrook is inspired by the ever-changing and dynamic intersection between man and nature. His works feature the flowing organic lines found in wood and stone, set abruptly against bright angular strokes and geometric patterns. The result is dramatic, beautiful and thought-provoking. His work has been displayed at MoMA in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and the Denver Art Museum.

When you buy one of these cards you support an artist, support sustainability and make everyone on your list happy. And besides, how often do you get to put a work of art in your wallet?

Hey... was wondering when is this going to be available to buy? Haven't seen it in the store, and the website only has digital version. :)
