It’s that time of year again: The season of peace, goodwill and ‘what can I possibly get Eric/Joanna/Clare/Michael/insert-name’. It’s the first day of advent, and there are just 17 shopping days left until Christmas!

But never fear, if you’re struggling to find the perfect gifts for the designers in your life, we have some creative suggestions for you. Whether you’re looking for the office secret santa, or your very significant other, we’ve got you covered…
UNDER $25
1. VR HEADSET: V2 CARDBOARD VR HEADSET ($7.99)
For someone you like, but don’t love enough for an Oculus Rift. This headset will take iPhones and Android devices with screens up to 6”, with Google’s Cardboard app.

Mid-century modern gets wearable. Uniqlo’s SPRZ NY Eames collection also includes t-shirts and throws.

For anyone who can’t face the annual family Trivial Pursuit battle again, this is a great alternative.

A great idea for someone who likes a tidy desk, with the added health benefits that plants provide.  There’s a smaller one for $20 too.

A gorgeous, and very flexible task light designed by Naoto Fukasawa for Artemide. Will make working into the small hours more pleasant.
11. CALENDAR: PERPETUUM CALENDAR BY OTHR ($355 / $380)
Yes, nearly $400 for a calendar does seem a bit much, but it is a beautiful object and is intended to last forever.

Possibly the most stylish briefcase/laptop bag ever. Looks good enough to double as a handbag for even the most chic of lunches, dahling.
