As creatives, we never wait until the last minute to do anything. But we certainly understand that the holidays are a busy time, so we’ve put together some last-minute gift ideas based on our areas of expertise.
Last-minute gift ideas for the strategist on your list
1. A deck of cards that spark creativity on the go
Ideo is putting design tools into the hands of problem solvers everywhere. The Design Kit Travel Pack won’t be shipped until March, but even better: you can spread cheer by investing in the project before it ever goes into production.
2. A less-is-more notebook to plan their next elaborate scheme
Strategists like sleek notebooks with boxes to compartmentalize our thoughts. The Reduced Action Book has visual prompts to organize and prioritize tasks—whether it’s a big website project or a trip to the grocery.
3. Grids and guides and everything nize
Inspired by vintage laboratory notebooks, Grids & Guides features 144 pages of graph paper for mapping out graphs, schematics, sketches, and dreams in a stylish and durable book.
4. A book about smarter choices
Don’t Read This Book: Time Management for Creative People helps creatives stay on top of—not ignore—their creative sparks.
5. The fuel of life
When in doubt, give the gift of caffeine. Or better yet, booze.
