Holstee Reflection Cards are a fun way to spark meaningful conversations and deepen relationships with the people in your life.
Every deck includes 100+ thought-provoking questions centered around mindful themes like Adventure, Creativity, and Resilience. Perfect to use with friends, family, and coworkers.
Each card has a unique, abstract design, representing the adventures, stories, and ideas that make us who we are.
The perfect question is always on hand.
We’ve researched, brainstormed, and tested hundreds of options to arrive at the 104 questions included in the deck. The final questions were chosen based on their potential to inspire stories, emotions, and a sense of connectedness.
Each card has two questions on it — an icebreaker to keep things light and fun, and a deeper question for digging into the good stuff.
No matter what card you pull or who you are with, you’ve always got a great question to ask.
When to use your Holstee Reflection Cards.
- With friends: Dinner parties, road trips, picnics, brunches, camping trips — there is never a bad moment to start a meaningful conversation that will leave you feeling better connected with friends old and new.
- With family: We used these questions with our parents and learned more about each other in two hours than we had in the past two years. Best for ages 10 and up.
- With co-workers: A tool to help you get beyond typical water cooler talk and build relationships with your team. Great for company off-sites or as an ice-breaker before meetings.
- With a partner: Whether you're on your 1st date or celebrating your 51st anniversary, these questions can help you discover and share new things about each other.
- With a journal: Bring a deeper level of introspection to your next journal entry. These questions are perfect writing prompts and a wonderful way to get to know yourself better.
Beautiful, functional, and fun.
Each card has a unique, abstract design, representing the adventures, stories, and ideas that make us who we are. Together, the cards make a single, connected piece of art — a reminder that we are united in our differences.
Informed by mindfulness and positive psychology.
Covering topics such as Kinship, Gratitude, and Compassion, the cards tackle all of our Holstee Themes — informed by our research into the science of mindfulness and positive psychology. The cards are color-coded so you can guide the conversation or self-reflection however you feel.
Each deck also includes some gameplay suggestions to help you get started!
Quality & Sustainability
The cards are printed with the world's leading playing card producer, the United States Playing Card Company based in Kentucky, USA. They have been perfecting the quality of their cards since they started printing in 1867 and produce some of the highest quality cards in the world including Bicycle®, "Bee"®, Aviator®, and Hoyle® playing cards.
We chose USPC for their print quality and their dedication to minimizing the environmental effects of production. Our playing cards are crafted from sustainably-forested paper, starch-based laminating glue and vegetable-based printing inks. At the end of their long life, the cards are also recyclable.
- Shipping & Returns
I loved how well done the material and design is made. It truly is a deck as any professional brand of cards. There are many things I think I can do with them, is also perfect as a gift! I’m thinking about grabbing a card a day and writing in my journal or even blog posts.
I use these all the time and even bought them as gifts for others. They are perfect for talking to others and finding deeper connections… or just having fun! My only minor dislike is the box they come in. It is adorably designed, but has unfortunately come apart quicker than I would wish. This is problem more of a “me” problem because I use them frequently on hiking trips, so they are jostling around my backpack. I’d love a more protective case to put them in, or just a stronger box.
These cards are fantastic, great questions, nicely done. There are terrific conversation creators. I've been using this for helping in righting my memoirs. The only thing missing might be a set of numbers on the cards, you one could play a game of some sorts with them.
The cards are really awesome, pose some insightful/interesting/deep questions
I'm a big fan of these reflection cards! I keep them in the car's glove compartment, and break them out on long road trips. The co-pilot chooses a card and have a lot of fun connecting this way.

Greater Good Toolkit
Every part of the The Greater Good Toolkit from the guides, to the box, to the shipping box we send it in are all printed and assembled in the USA. The guides are printed with our friends at PrintWest, a Washington state based printer we have had the pleasure of working with for many years. The box was created with Master Paper Box in Illinois using from approximately 95% recycled material, and the recycled cardboard shipping box was printed with Arizona Corrugated in, well you may have guessed it, Arizona :-)
Cards, Prints & Posters
We produce our prints with EM Letterpress and Aardvark Letterpress, two craft-driven letterpress printers based in North Attleboro, MA and Los Angeles, CA respectively. Both print shops have been huge supporters of Holstee since the beginning and we couldn't be more proud to work with them.
Our designs are printed using low VOC and non-toxic inks on bamboo and cotton papers that are both chlorine and acid-free.
In 2013, we meet the team at Urban Ashes and we were inspired by their work with reclaimed wood, as well as their approach to training and working with formerly incarcerated individuals.
Our frames are handcrafted from reclaimed wood taken from deconstructed homes and buildings in the Detroit Metro Area. The frames themselves are put together in Ann Arbor, MI.
We are proud that through our work with Urban Ashes, we are able to give both the wood of these frames, and the craftsman and women who assemble them, a second chance.
Our self-adhesive Manifesto Decal is produced by Riverworks Printing in Greenland, NH and Landor in the United Kingdom. The decal is printed onto biodegradable PVC-free polyester using eco-solvent, low VOC inks. The unique adhesive we use (designed to be posted and removed up to 100 times!) is phthalate-free and won’t damage your walls.
