Our favorite thing to give and receive? Hands down...a good book. A gift to use over and over again, full of inspiration and ideas, and usually not too hard on the wallet - yup, that works for us. Here is our list of old favorites and a few new ones we've got our eye on, that we think are perfect for all of our (and your?) design fanatic friends:
