Designer gift guide 2014

26 Nov 2014

Since I always have a hard time coming up with ideas for gifts I thought it would be fun to create a list of cool gifts for a designer. These are probably great gifts for anyone with good taste, not just designers :)

Shopping for gifts for others can be really hard so hopefully this will make that task easier.

##Harman Kardon CL Headphones

harman kardon headphones I just got these headphones and I am really in love with the build quality and the sound quality. They are a big step up from the in ear apple headphones I used to use. Love the design and the build quality.

##Lamy fountain pen

lamy fountain pens I know most designers have a thing for nice pens or other type of writing instruments. Nice notebooks and pens are one of the things that I really like enjoy and you can’t go wrong with a Lamy fountain pen. For the price there’s nothing better. I think the quality is comparable to more expensive pens and the desingn is really unique too. You should also pick up a refillable cartrige and some ink

##Moleskine notebooks These are great stocking stuffers. A lot of designers use and appreciate them. You can probably get great notebooks for less but Moleskine is a pretty much synonim to “designer notebook” these days :)

Books are also great gifts so here are some nice ones that you can get. If you would like to get more ideas there is always this resource for great design books.
