Gift Ideas for Decorating Enthusiasts

Is someone in your life addicted to decorating? Need gift ideas? Here are some great gift ideas that your favorite designer will love.

Design idea books and magazine subscriptions are always popular. We can never get enough of beautifully decorated homes featured in the photographs. A client of mine gave me a subscription to an Australian design magazine-what an original idea! It is a lot of fun to compare the different design styles. Whether he or she loves French, Italian or American country, there is a design magazine out there that would make a wonderful gift.

Decorators and designers always need tote bags to carry around fabric swatches, paint samples and a host of other tools of the trade. This cute bag (it says Peace, Love, Interior Design) is perfect.

As a designer, I love my iPhone. I keep client notes, photos, contacts and resources on it and use it all time to surf the Internet. Make her iPhone even more stylish with this chandelier-motif iPhone case. It will make a great statement.

This journal will come in handy for writing down ideas and resources, as well as clipping magazine photos of beautiful rooms.,345842124

As people who love color, decorators and designers will enjoy wearing this cute color-wheel watch. What a great conversation piece. There are also color clocks, mugs and posters. Great decor items for a home office.

If your favorite designer is a fan of retro-modern design, he or she will love these Eames chair coasters. Eames chairs are timeless and classic, and there are many gift items available featuring these beautiful designs. You'll find mugs, calendars, T-shirts and more.

Best wishes to you all for a wonderful holiday season and happy New Year.
