TalentMEDIA – 20 More Days Until Christmas

Are you one of those people who waits until the last minute to go holiday shopping? Do you have creative family and friends who are hard to shop for?

If you’re like me, you hate to give gift cards to everyone. You want to give a gift that serves a purpose, that has some meaning, and that maybe the recipient will actually cherish.

Here are some ideas on what to get that editorial, production, creative geek in your family.


You can’t really go wrong with a gift from Pantone. These are some things every designer (and anyone who loves color) will enjoy. Your toughest choice will be which color to get!


Instant photo cameras are all the rage right now. Those of us of a certain age remember the original Polaroid cameras — and apparently you can still purchase a “vintage” Polaroid! Today’s versions are much more modern, sleek, and colorful. They come in an array of colors and sizes. You can also purchase special film — black and white, rainbow frame, and even frames of different sizes.


If your friend is an editor or proofreader, and you know work is all they think about, maybe they would enjoy one of these gifts. Because let’s face it, every editor we know is secretly red-lining everything we say in their heads — so why not have fun with it!


If you want more gift ideas, here’s a great post from Adobe. It lists everything from digital drawing tablets, cookie presses, posters, and even some fun stationery.


Happy shopping, happy holidays, and hopefully there will be plenty of happy gift recepients as well!
