It’s the weekend. It’s almost December. It feels like Pina Colada on a summer vacation in Hawaii.
Truth be told, we don’t need a reason to value this sweet, harmony yet energetic Swatch Club interior design!

Quick Christmas Shopping Tips

Before you hit the stores for Christmas deals, get these quick tips from us that are guaranteed to please anyone! 

Get something practical for them
If you pay close attention to someone, you’ll realize that they are in need of something. It could be a down pillow for office chair, a weekend at the spa, a drinking tumbler for gym, a new jacket for the frost, anything! If you can’t stand the silly thought of them going through without all these, hurry down the store and find one in their favourite colour! They’ll be thankful that you made their life easier!

10 Amazing Gadgets for Designers

There are many times where we take a peek at designers’ desks and wonder what those tech-savvy stuffs are.

Some designers prefer their work space clean and minimal, while some prefer it in their own state. No matter how you arrange your space, we found 10 really cool gadgets for you.

Not only it fits stylishly but they are also practical. If you are a designer, let’s make you a super cool one!

1. Polaroid
Polaroid Z340 Instant Camera - Photojojo
Do you realize that things from the past eras are coming back as a trend? Come on! Back then it was cool but now it is way cooler! We are not talking about basic Polaroid camera here. You can edit and save pictures from the memory card too!

Yes, we are talking about shutter device that fits the old and young.

2. Beat Block
BeatBlock Speaker

It could be the new album release from your favorite band or just browsing through Internet radio. Unless you are having a phone or online conversation, sharing is caring. Tune up your workplace with this most durable portable speaker and share the goodness with other designers.

Keep an eye out for version 2; higher volume, better bass response and rain proof. Bam!

3. Tank Up Coffee Mug
Tank Up Coffee Mug - Fred & Friends

Alright, this is not exactly an electronic gadget or anything of a complicated mechanic. But we are pretty sure that we cannot overlook an awesome mug from a designer’s table. For us, the mug is equally important as the caffeine fuel! With the heat-sensitive printing, you will know when to brew another fresh pot of coffee.

Yay to never sipping from an empty cup again!

4. Snooze Alarm
Snooze iPhone Alarm Dock - Distilunion

Instead of accidentally dismissing your iPhone alarm (familiar?), you can snooze your Snooze iPhone Alarm Dock or quiet down incoming phone calls easily with a sleepy-slap. With the snooze-function rubber top and non-slip bottom, Snooze can stylishly fit your bedside table or work desk; a hero indeed when it comes to our power nap.

5. TIC TAC TOE Pencil Holder
Tic Tac Toe Pencil Holder - 24Dientes

We love neat and minimal work space; even better if we could have bit of fun. Old classic games are hard to die especially when it’s part of your desk! Let’s say when your creative director comes over to your table to check on your work, don’t let him/her walk away just like that. Have a game ready and take a fun break!
