What are the best Startup Gifts to buy a Designer?

It's 2018 and you're about to do your holiday shopping for your loved ones.  You know they are in a "Startup", but you don't know what that means or what to get them.   Fear not, we've compiled the best list of Startup Gifts we could find just for you!

Read below to find out what are the best Gifts for Startups in 2018 starting with our collection of Startup Swag!

For Designers

Designers have a keen eye and an impeccable sense of fashion.   If your loved one is a Designer, it's likely that they care about good taste and design-centered humor.

For Designer Gifts in the Startup Industry, we recommend the following options: 

CMY Killin IT Hoodie - This hoodie was designed by designers, for designers.  Don't get it?  Neither did we (until it was explained by our Design Team) - apparently "CMYK" stands for Cyan, Magento, Yellow, and Black which are the primary colors used in color printing.   So, CMY "K"illing it - as in they are crushing it 9-5.


#DesignLife - The #DesignLife hashtag represents everything a designer goes through (the good and the bad) in their day to day struggles at work and at home.  If you check out Instagram, you'll see plenty of examples of fellow designers expressing what it's like to live that #designlife.  

The #designlife unisex t-shirt is simple yet sophisticated and speaks to more with less. We highly recommend this tee for people who like shirts that standout in a crowd.

Moleskine Evernote Smart Notebook - This product is used by almost EVERYONE on our design team here at OpenForge.  We build awesome products for a living every day, and we need our designers to have the best quality products.  

They live, love, and die for the Moleskin notebooks.  If you're looking for a solid present that can't go wrong; this is it.

The Lean Startup Book - If your loved one is a designer and is new to the Startup Industry; they may not have read this book yet.  If not, they really need to.  It's one of the standards/ defactos in the Startup Industry.  

We highly recommend it, and Amazon is probably the best place to buy it.

Thank you for Shopping!

We hope this helps in your holiday shopping!   If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us at hello@openforge.io and we'll be sure to get back to you!
