Our Gift To You: Gift Guides For Designers

barbiedance.jpg

Our favorite collectives of design bloggerati have compiled their collective wisdom into gift guides for the designers in your life. And we’ve collected it here.

Cuddle up with Design Observer’s Holiday Reading List for the little endorsements from DO editors, great variety of topics, and John “PC” Hodgman’s The Areas of My Expertise.

Treehugger breaks it down by category (for the kids, for sun-lovers) so you can impress each and every one of your recipients with your responsible taste.

design*sponge’s got gifts under $25, gifts under $50 and gifts under $100.

Core77′s is more like a “Best Of 2006 Gadgets” but with a clever twist: 77 gifts under $77. Extra points for a 77-song Core77 mix on iTunes (listen to it while you reenact the dance intermissions above) and the inclusion of the BeDazzler.
