Designers, let’s be honest – you’re really hard to shop for!
I mean, you have amazing taste. As a non-designer, I run a serious risk of picking something for you that’s – well, less than amazing.
I know it’s the thought that counts, but come on - how embarrassing!!!!
I'm so behind the 8-ball on this that even if I do know for sure that something is amazing, you likely already have it... Heck, you probably told me about it!
This year, though, I was determined to crack the code on finding gifts designers might actually love to receive.
I searched high and low and found a few gizmos and gadgets that I'd feel good about gifting to the designers in my life and here's what I came up with:
At around $3,000 this is definitely the 'mac daddy' of gifts. But seriously – what designer doesn’t love travel and champagne?!?! Win win!
Sure, you might already have a business card holder, but these candy-colored, initialed ones are just plain fun! Fill one of these with your cards and keep it in your suitcase for when you run out of the cards in your purse while you’re traveling (you know you’ve been there!).
I’ve seen enough designers at High Point Market scrambling to charge their dying phones in showrooms to know every designer needs one of these babies!
Because sometimes the only way to get through your day is to be a little cheeky (I also totally love the “I’m kind of a big deal” one!).
You’re not going to stop using your car as a mobile office, but at least this will stop you from dropping your phone, your client meeting notes, and your water bottle cap into oblivion.
Another one for High Point! You probably already have a pair, but with all the colors they have now, you know you’d love another!
This candle has a higher purpose for designers than just looking quaint and cute. Cinnamon and vanilla are top creativity-boosting fragrances. Add lighting this puppy to your workflow in 2017!
