Aeropress

Another designer friend intro’d me to AeroPress and I’ve never looked back! Entire Cafés use the AeroPress system, because it makes 1 cup of the best coffee of your life at a time. And it’s only $33 for the whole system!

Price: $33

LED Lit Tracing Board

Remember when you were a kid, and you used to get those tracing books and they were your favorite thing of all time? Well, this is like that, but the grown up version for designers. Still exactly as fun as the originals! :)

Floating Swing Hammock Chair with Umbrella

This one because, who DOESN’T want to work on a design from a freaking floating swing hammock chair? I mean seriously. The best. And the umbrella protects your screen from glare, and it comes with a built in bag for design supplies and/or snacks. Can’t go wrong!

Price: $200

Bonus: This one is just flat out shameless self promotion (but I don’t feel TOO terrible since I only bank about 10% of the profit).

UX Doodle Mug

If you’re looking for a goofy gift that will make the designer in your life grin first thing in the morning, there’s always my UX doodle mug. :)
