makin a list

We're bombarded with lists this time of year, and one of the most common lists is the all too ubiquitous and rarely original "gift guide". The folks at Core77 (an online design magazine) have come up with one of the best ones I've seen: "77 Design Gifts Under $77; Free, DIY, Indie, and Obscure Gifts for the Discerning Design Geek and Geekette". Almost everything on there is under $77 (a couple break the rule by a dollar or two - thats fair, cause others are free), so everything is reasonably priced. Gifts range from the Modernist Gingerbread House to the Modern Classics Alphabet Poster; not to mention the Cubicle Periscope, the Astronaut Cutting Board - and my favorite - the Animal Scale. There are 72 more, so check it out for yourself. And if you need even more ideas, last years guide is linked from this years. That's 154 cool ideas for ya. Shop on.
