Just as it's true that it's better to give than to receive, the fun we had in choosing the items for this year's list was perhaps the highlight for us
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 10, 2008
Furthering its reputation as the global leader in design news and inspiration, New York-based design network Core77 has just published its annual Holiday Gift Guide, affectionately titled, "77 Design Gifts Under $77 from Core77." This is the third year that the online design hub has published its list -- the most widely linked-to gift list on the Internet.
This year's list represents an amazing range of products -- from high and low-tech, craft, books, and philanthropy, to DIY, fashion, food, utility, and just plain fun. And responding to these tight-budget times, the list features 36 items under the $25 mark, providing a rich selection of extremely affordable yet unique gifts.
In addition, the site is premiering two "Core77 Exclusives" -- items which can only be found through the Core77 website: Shuriken Magnets are a hot-selling item used to pin up reminder notes on metal surfaces. They mimic the Ninja throwing stars, and come 2-to-a-pack in an authentic ninja-styled shuriken box; BottleBob is an incredibly unique item designed to pierce a soda bottle cap, enabling you to magically drink through a straw. It's the perfect item for parties and holiday events.
The list is a combined effort of over a dozen Core77 contributors, and has been in the works for months. "Just as it's true that it's better to give than to receive, the fun we had in choosing the items for this year's list was perhaps the highlight for us," said Allan Chochinov, editor-in-chief of Core77. "We are constantly keeping our eyes open for exciting and unique items, traveling to tradeshows and design festivals. The gift list provides an opportunity to share some of the best finds with readers around the world."
Glen Jackson Taylor, a designer and contributor to the list, adds, "It's always a challenge curating items for the annual gift list, and as a self-professed hard-to-shop-for-person, this year's guide is loaded with unique, inspiring and delightful suggestions. We're conscious that people are looking for meaningful, unexpected gifts right now, and there's a ton here to help them express their point of view."
