Time’s running out on finding cool gifts for your friends and family. If you’ve got a web geek or graphic designer in your circles, we’ve got 3 rooms full of those types that know what they want. Here’s what we suggest. Feel free to load the comments up with other cool stuff we might not know about!
I’m an art collector, so my focus is primarily on framed prints for my office.
Here’s To The Crazy Ones – Letterpress print
The now iconic quote debuted in a 1997 television commercial for Apple Computer. The text was said to have been mostly written by then Apple CEO Steve Jobs. He embodied the characteristics in this quote arguably better than anyone in history. Today it lives on as a mantra for artists, inventors, entrepreneurs and innovators around the world. Profits from the sale are donated to the Acumend Fund, so not only is it a cool gift, a good cause is supported.
Let’s Make Better Mistakes Tomorrow – Art Print
Amber suggested this just today. I’m a Muppet fan, in case you’ve never visited our offices. This is awesome!
As an Absinthe connoisseur, I still don’t have an Absinthe fountain. For anyone that likes to show off their fancy beverage collection, this is a looker. Don’t forget a nice bottle of Absinthe Berthe de Joux or Nouvelle Orleans to go with that.
Small, super strong magnets you can arrange any way you like. Great for a quick work break or random desk sculptures.
The FlipIt! USB charger leeches power right off of a power line that’s in use. Using a swing-out rotating power tab, you can insert it between the outlet and the power plug of any US 100-240V device. It draws just enough juice to power or charge anything that runs off of USB power up to 1000mA.
Must reads for every design and web geek on the planet. Buy all six books and save 30%!
Very Designer’y. Don’t you dare use this for a Windows laptop.
Much nicer than those gross rubbery cases. Protect your iPhone with a one-piece, impact resistant, flexible plastic hard case featuring an extremely slim profile. Simply snap the case onto your iPhone for solid protection and direct access to all device features.
Talk about some beauties for your office. Only $495 for the complete system!
I really hope this isn’t a gimmick, because this camera claims to do things no camera has ever done before. From the site: “Since you’ll capture the color, intensity, and direction of all the light, you can experience the first major light field capability – focusing after the fact. Focus and re-focus, anywhere in the picture. You can refocus your pictures at anytime, after the fact.”
Pimp out that iPad in style. Crafted by hand using traditional bookbinding techniques.
