9 gifts for a graphic designer

gifts for a graphic designer

Whether for Christmas, Valentine's Day, a birthday, end of school year, or a self-gift that you want to give yourself, the truth is that there are many gifts for a graphic designer. But we know that, when thinking about one, you may go blank or end up saying: "but he already has everything."

Well, if that happens to you, perhaps the gift ideas that we are going to give you below will help you see some options that you had not thought of. Or to inspire you with others that could be perfect for that person you have in mind who works as a graphic designer. Do you keep an eye on it? We begin.

Halo One Speaker

It is a speaker with a curious design if there ever was one. Because yes, it may have a similar shape to some, but this one is inspired by nature. It's simple, although it has Bluetooth, so you won't have a problem with it.

Perhaps what is most striking is the shape it has, a white base and a curvy sound box, made of wood, which is quite striking if there is one.

It is built under TWS technology and that allows You can pair two Halo Ones in case you want to have stereo sound. But we already warned you that, with one, you will already have a spectacular sound.

Pantone Mug

pantone mugs

As you know, Pantone is known worldwide because it is one of the companies that has all colors identified with their perfect numbering. So one of the gifts for a perfect graphic designer is to choose him the Pantone mug of his favorite color. No, no, we don't mean a red, blue, green, purple or white cup. No. One with the exact color that he always puts in all of his creations, that you know he has a predilection for and that he is able to distinguish if that shade is darker or lighter.

That same one.

And for it You will need to know the exact Pantone color it is to purchase the mug. Yes, it will be easy. The difficult thing will be to achieve it without him realizing it.

Rockebook Smart Notebook

We leave aside the "drink" (or any other use that can be given to a cup) and in this case we talk about a smart notebook. One of those that even you might like.

And this notebook It allows you to write what you want and then delete it. But, so that you don't lose it, you can scan it beforehand so that you have it saved on your computer or in the cloud so that you never lose it.

In fact, it is not only one of the gifts for a graphic designer, but it could appeal to anyone who tends to write a lot, who likes to do it by hand, but then needs to always carry it with them for whatever may happen. Just one notebook and you will have paper for almost a lifetime.

ReMarkable Tablet

ReMarkable Tablet

Something similar to the previous gift, but we could say that a mix between a tablet and an ebook, is ReMarkable. In reality, it is a tablet that has a electronic ink screen. It has a cloud service and its own app.

It will allow you to choose the type of "background" you want to start working with, either with points, lines, for lists, or blank so you can draw without any problem.

We could say that It replaces paper like the previous one, but it allows you some extras that the previous gift does not have.

So it can be a good idea for those who need a notebook in which to write down ideas in sketches and then be blank again to reuse it. This way you will never be left without a notebook or without space to write or draw whatever you need.

Books by A Book Apart

A Book Apart Books are a classic and a must have for every graphic designer. So, if he doesn't have them yet, you are already taking too long to give him that gift. These are books related to graphic design and the ideal client, or CSS3 code. That is, they are very specific books on topics that a professional who dedicates themselves to that will like.

You'll be sure to get it right, if you don't already have them, of course. From what we have been able to see there are only sixteen books, although we do not know if there will be more. Nor can we assure you that all of them are in Spanish (because we have found them in French).

Mercury Dany – Board Game

If you remember the game Pictionary, and you liked it, then surely this one does too because it has a very similar base. This is a game whose main function is that you must communicate with others through abstract images. So, you have to represent things that, in reality, do not have a usual material drawing because how would you draw a soul? And an inner peace?

Well, that's it. For graphic designers, it can help them unblock themselves and see things from another perspective.

Monitor stand

Continuing with the gifts for a graphic designer, in this case we are going to something practical. And this is a stand for the monitor. Sometimes the monitor must be placed at a certain height (and separation from the person's view). But if not, you can give him a gift that is useful for his daily life.

Of course, be careful with the type of support you give him because If it does not adapt to your way of working, no matter how good your intentions are, you will not be able to use it correctly.

History of graphic design book

Written by Philip Meggs and Alston W. Purvis, this book, Written and first published in 1983, it was one of the most acclaimed. Now it has reached its fourth edition and in it we find a historical compilation of topics related to graphic design, from its beginnings to the current era.

Lorem Ipsum T-shirt

Finally, we propose as a gift for a graphic designer a T-shirt with the usual code that all web pages carry a priori (when the texts have not yet been created and a type is added so that the result is better visualized).
