These gifts for the graphic designer are great for two things: inspiring creativity and helping to turn bright ideas into tangible creations. Whether it's a notebook for doodling, a handy stylus for mobile devices that's being used to crank out new concepts, or even an inspiring piece of wall art, these gifts are sure to please those with an eye for design.

Since designers can be quite picky when it comes to what they like to surround themselves with, sometimes buying a gift for them can be intimidating. However, one of the best options is to go with something simple like a vivid Pantone-inspired gift such as the Color Swatch Calendar by Peter Von Freyhold, which is visually appealing and useful since it also doubles as a CMYK color referencing tool.
