Gift Ideas for the Graphic Designer in your life
With the holiday season in full swing I know many people are scrambling to find the perfect gifts for family and friends. When searching for those on my list I came across some quirky gift ideas that would be perfect for any designer. I compiled my favorites into the following gift guide:
1. Pantone Hotel: As a designer there is no better place to get inspired than a trip to the Pantone Hotel in Brussels, Belgium. The unique design of this hotel will open your eyes to a spectrum of all different colors. Surprise a loved one in your life with a trip to get inspired and live/play in the world of color that they work with everyday.
2. Photoshop Photo Frame: This goofy frame makes their photos look as if they are in their work.
3. Apple Magic Mouse: This is the most advanced apple mouse yet! The magic mouse is wireless and has a seamless multi-touch surface. This surface reads your gestures to allow page swiping, 36-degree scroll, one and two-button click, and screen zoom. Pretty much you cant go wrong with and gift from Apple for the designer in your life!
4. Bluetooth Virtual Laser Keyboard: This is a compact gadget that can display a full-size laser keyboard on any flat surface.
