Hey guys, any ideas on cool gifts for designer-friends this holiday season? Thanks!
Probably a stupid graphic tee with an ampersand on it.
Always a solid source (wallet "depletorator" too): https://canopy.co
I feel like this is relevant...
This. I read all the other links in this discussion, and many of them seem to be accessories or objects that seem to say "Here's this minimal item cause I heard you were a designer." I mean I love design too, but I also enjoy many different things as well; my life doesn't entirely consist of just designing things. Of course it's important to keep in mind friends' occupations, but a well thought out gift that shows one knows the person is much better than a random one that resonates with (web & UI) designers in general.
Last year someone got me a portable whiteboard notebook that I now never leave home without (and get compliments on constantly). Definitely recommend this for any designer peeps.
T-shirt that says:
You could checkout https://www.mapiful.com/ and see if you can find a place that they might like to hang on their wall!
Revision Path's Holiday Gift Guide has a good assortment of gifts for everyone (though it is skewed a bit towards designers and developers).
Maybe something related with Pantone...
Gear Patrol has a list of the 17 Best Gifts for Designers: http://gearpatrol.com/2015/11/30/best-gifts-for-the-designer-2015/
I often peruse Verygoods.co when looking for designery gifts!
