90 Gifts for Design Fans

From De Stijl Stationary Sets to Modern Geometric Quilts

— December 22, 2015 — Art & Design
Heading into the 2015 holiday season, there is lots of inspiration in terms of gifts for design fans regardless of how much you are looking to spend. From De Stijl stationary sets that liven up your desk to scientific scent diffusers that infuse your space with a sense of apothecary-chic, design-centric gifts come in a surprising variety of forms.

Akademie X is an enormous and vibrant coffee table book from iconic British publisher Phaidon that compiles some of the best advice from some of civilization's greatest artists. Designed by Phaidon's award-winning creative director Julia Hasting, the set is aesthetically stunning and would make a fabulous hostess gift for a design enthusiast.

If you are looking for stocking stuffers, consider gifting something small but meaningful like Blakebrough+King's ultra-minimalist incense sets or a stylish design-optimized City Guide by Red Maps.
