“I’m so excited to partner with Hallmark for the Real Stories collection,” Nichols said. “The beauty of tapping into our sensitivity and empathy is when people are experiencing these positive, encouraging messages they feel seen.”

Hallmark introduced the Real Stories collection in 2021 to help consumers support their loved ones through a wide range of “real-life” experiences – from difficult and bittersweet situations to joyful new beginnings. Kristy Lewis, vice president of marketing and consumer experience at Hallmark, said they partnered with the poet and artist to introduce new, inspirational designs to the existing collection.

“This new offering of greeting cards and gifts brings together Morgan Harper Nichols’ unique artistic talent and Hallmark’s mission to help people connect with the ones they care about,” Lewis said. “And if you ask us, it’s a perfect match.”

The Morgan Harper Nichols Real Stories collection features 24 greeting cards and a wide variety of unique gifts including a travel mug, easel calendar, cube caddy, tea towel, daily affirmation set and more. Covered in words of comfort and support, and splashed with colours that soothe or energize, the collection features cards for everyday life, as well as milestone moments and special occasions.
