It’s that time of year again when spirits are high and full of food, family, and holiday gift giving. Are you still trying to squeeze in some last minute shopping? We’ve put together a list of a few design-related gifts that would be perfect for the graphic designer in your life.
- CMYK Playing Cards – For a classic gift with a modern design twist, consider getting your loved one some CMYK playing cards. Instead of the traditional suits each card is represented by one of four tones of print: cyan, magenta, yellow and key (black). Each card also features a different opacity to represent its value.
- Field Notes – Notepads inspired by 1930s American agricultural memo books, Field Notes are both unassuming and beautiful. They’re also incredibly handy for the designer who is always on the go. Never lose your ideas again!
- Print Color Guide – For the graphic designer that’s always concerned about color consistency in their work, a print color guide is incredibly convenient. It’s also an incredibly useful tool when communicating colors to printers.
- Business Card Holder – Most graphic designers make their own business cards. Why not help show them off in style? You can find a wide variety of cool and sophisticated looking business card holders, and they make the perfect stocking stuffer.
- A Coffee Table Book – There are a plethora of design focused coffee table books that show of some of the most inspiring works in the industry. Although a good coffee table book can fetch a high price tag, they make for excellent holiday gifts.
- A Chic Lamp – Most designers already have a good drafting table or desk from which to work on, but oftentimes they overlook the need for quality lighting fixtures. An elegant and chic desk lamp makes a perfect holiday gift.
- Lego Architecture – For anyone who appreciates good design and would appreciate a trip back to their childhood, Lego architecture sets are the perfect gift. These Lego sets feature iconic buildings such as the Farnsworth House, The White House, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater and more.
