Interior design is all about the ability to transform an ordinary space into a beautiful, well-designed and functional environment.
Art is what describes a designer best, and it is imperative that their gifts resound his/her love for beauty. You can say, an interior designer has an eye for things that are uniquely appealing, which is why it is important you choose something that is out of the blue.
It makes sense to take into consideration his special interests, which will help you decide on the best possible gift for your designer friend.

Apart from books and collectibles, an interior designer would definitely like a gift that promotes his talent. You can choose to give magazine subscriptions, personalized journals, diaries, and coffee table books.
Apart from the customary gifting ideas, you can also sponsor a webpage or blog where he can showcase and publicize his skill. Among the other gifts, your designer friend will be more than pleased to receive an iPad or tablet that he can use as a brochure on-the-go.
