The Last-Minute Gift Guide For Tastemakers
For those of you who have yet to pick out a gift for your design- or tech-loving friends, Tequila Don Julio—in collaboration with DesignTAXI—has curated a last-minute gift guide to help you ‘Elevate Your Holiday’.
1. The ‘Perfect Pencil’ by Graf von Faber-Castell
Aspiring writers and designers will love this pencil by Graf von Faber-Castell. Dubbed the ‘Perfect Pencil’, it is crafted from Californian cedar, and comes with a platinum-, silver-, or sterling silver-plated extender that also serves as a sharpener, cap and clip.
With a replaceable eraser located under its cap, the pencil comes with everything needed when it comes to writing or sketching—which makes it entirely functional.
The Perfect Pencil retails at US$260 on Amazon.
2. The ‘Handpresso Auto’ Espresso Maker By Handpresso
Giving “coffee to go” a new meaning, Handpresso created an espresso machine for your car.
Called the ‘Handpresso Auto’, it prepares high-quality espresso in the car with a simple press of a button.
If any of your friends don’t have the time to get a coffee before getting into their cars, this will be the perfect gift for them.
The Handpresso Auto retails at EU$149 on its official website.
3. ‘La Sardina 8ball’ by Lomography
Sophisticatedly dressed in its textured black coat, the ‘La Sardina 8ball’ is the sexiest 35mm film camera you can choose to shoot with.
As Lomography’s first standard La Sardina edition, this camera will have you experimenting with wide-angles and multiple exposures from now until forever!
The La Sardina 8ball is available on The Bazaar at US$69.
4. ‘Sky WiFi Smartpen’ by Livescribe
Livescribe has designed a pen that records everything its user writes and hears in real-time.
Called the ‘Sky WiFi Smartpen’, it is able to capture handwritten notes, ideas and diagrams—it even records high-quality audio files and wirelessly syncs all information to the user’s online personal Evernote account.
Users can access their notes using a Mac, Windows, iOS or Andriod unit—and can easily search, playback and share their notes via email, Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn.
This ‘smartpen’ is available on Amazon at US$170 for a 2GB version and $200 for a 4GB version.
