We Made This Great Big Christmas Wish List (part 1)
Are you fed up with getting drab and uninteresting presents at Christmas?
Not looking forward to unwrapping a series of tacky 'novelty' gifts once again this year?
Well, despair no more, for here is the We Made This Great Big Christmas Wish List (part 1 today, parts 2 and 3 later in the week). Simply point your nearest and dearest to these posts, and let them browse at will, safe in the knowledge that you'll be getting something you really want this year.
Or, alternatively, just buy something for yourself. It is Christmas after all.
(And yep, we know it's not even mid-November yet, but lots of this stuff is limited edition, so there's no time for dawdling.)
#1. A print from Product of God
Product of God is a fantastic online gallery selling limited edition prints by graphic designers and illustrators. This one is Bloodlines 1 by David Foldvari, in an edition of 75. £125.
#2. Grafitti Train from Suck UK
Go old school. A solid vinyl train that you customise with a stack of grafitti transfers. Kind of like an Airfix model. Only cooler. £25.
#3. Something tasty from Blanka
They do lots of lovely stuff here: books, posters, prints, tshirts, bags. We like their t-shirts by Counterfeit Outfit, including the band logo t-shirt above. £23.
#4. An original illustration by Tom Gauld at Cabanon Press
Tom Gauld is one of our favourite illustrators, and he's currently selling a series of original illustrations created for the Guardian Review letters page, done in "black and white pen-and-a-little-tippex on paper". They're going for a song at £100 each.
#5. A typographic t-shirt from Artefacture
We're totally loving the t-shirts created by this American company. We'd go for their Design will save the world one. $28 plus $5 extra for international shipping.
#6. Something gorgeous from Thorsten van Elten
It's a little sick, but totally brilliant. We first saw Maxim Velcovsky's Little Joseph candle holder at the Designboom show at Designer's Block, and you can now get it from the hottest product design store in town. £49.
