Gifts for Graphic Designers!

It’s officially Christmas season! Whether you’re shopping for a graphic designer in your life or just looking for fun and creative gifts, here’s a list of my top five favorite design-inspired gifts.

  1. The Slate 2.0 Lapdesk: Whether you’re working from your bed or the couch, Slate’s laptop desk protects your laptop from heat and even has a dock that fits most phones and tablets!
  2. The 1,000 Colors Puzzle by Clemens Habicht: It’s the ultimate test to see how well you know the CMYK gamut—it’s a 1,000 piece puzzle with exactly 1,000 colors! Rather than being a visual guessing game, it’s a fun way to challenge your color intuition.
  3. The Lindlund Ruler: This ruler was literally designed with designers in mind, with print and digital measurements. Picas, pixels, inches, and centimeters all on one rulers means better flow between your design’s ideation on paper to its execution on your computer.
  4. Letter Pressed Cookie Cutters: These cookie cutters are a must-have for any typography lover! They’re a fun way to bring your love for design into the kitchen.
  5. CMYK Playing Cards: Suits have been swapped for cyan, magenta, yellow, and black cleverly designed using different opacities of ink. Whether you’re a card game fan or not, these cards are beautiful!

Happy shopping!

    This is great Lauren! What a fun creative post! All these gifts are for graphic lovers for sure! I would love to try the puzzle out I think that would be a good way to familiarize myself with colors and it would also be useful when comparing different color tones side by side. The cookie cutters are super cute too!

    I would definitely appreciate those playing cards! I love how there is a gradient to see the value of each card.
