Buying a gift for a designer doesn't have to involve a $200 book or $2,000 chair. In fact, it's usually better if it doesn't. Keeping our near-empty wallets in mind, we tapped our friends and co-workers to choose 14 gifts that are witty and useful without being snobbish.

If you've got any ideas you'd like to add, just follow this format in the comments:

  • Name and price of the product (please link this to a product page when applicable, so people can easily buy it).
  • Image or video of the product.
  • A note explaining why you think it's great.
