Holiday Gift Ideas for the Designer in Your Life

It’s that time of year yet again! If you’ve got a designer in your life, you probably already know the struggle when it comes to the holidays and shopping for that special someone. Since design is a part of–quite literally–everything, and designers each have their own unique design sense, their tastes can be a bit discerning to say the least. Giving even the most seemingly innocuous item can be a daunting task when a creative person is the one receiving it.

So what can you get for the graphic designer in your life this holiday season? Here are a few ideas from the design team at Westwerk:

For the trendy designer: EVERNOTE Products

To you, desk accessories and carrier bags are just that. But to a designer who spends a solid part of their life on their computer it’s important they have a functional yet aesthetically pleasing work space. That being said, you really can’t go wrong with the products from Evernote Market. Buy one of their unique wood laptop stands or well-designed commuter bags and we guarantee your designer will be grateful.

For the inspired designer: A Good Read

Being part of a creative and ever changing industry isn’t always easy. But with a couple of our favorite books – Creativity, Inc.: Overcoming the Unseen Forces That Stand in the Way of True Inspiration and Show Your Work!: 10 Ways to Share Your Creativity and Get Discovered you can help your designer stay inspired and find originality in business.

For the constantly caffinated designer: Creative Fuel

Here at Westwerk the designers live and die by their morning cup of joe. Paired with a bag of local coffee, this awesome and affordable minibru coffee press mug is a sure way to start your designer’s day with a smile!

For the on-the-go designer: Field Notes

For designers, inspiration can strike anywhere, at any time. Which means that having a pen and paper handy wherever you go is of the utmost importance, and you really can’t go wrong with Field Notes notebooks. Small, simple and stylish, a pack of these makes the perfect stocking stuffer.

Clothes for Designers by Designers
