This is the season of gifts. At this time of year, most of us are busy preparing for Christmas. One of the fun, but tiring part is buying gifts for your loved ones. This becomes even tiring if you are buying a gift for someone who is a designer.
If you have someone who is a designer and you think that they will love any Christmas gift you have for them, then you might be wrong. Buying a Christmas gift for designers is tricky because they are really picky. They have likes and dislikes unlike other folks around them. They might as well hate things that poorly design. There might not be many things that designers would want as a Christmas gift, but there are still a few unusual stuff that they are definitely going to love.
