There are many different ways to gift a designer. Some people love to buy something practical or helpful while others enjoy spending money on experiences. Whatever the case may be, there are no hard rules about what constitutes a perfect gift. In fact, it’s really up to the recipient whether or not they find a particular present meaningful.
Don’t feel pressured into buying expensive presents just because you want to make sure you give a great gift. If you know a designer personally, ask them what they would like most. They might tell you about a project they recently completed or a favorite piece of furniture they designed. Or maybe they could use some help organizing their studio or office space. These are all excellent ideas for thoughtful gifts.
If you aren’t familiar with a particular designer, check out their portfolio online. Look up reviews of their work and see how much it costs. Then, choose a gift based on your budget and the amount of experience the designer has.
