Picking out the perfect gift for interior designers can be intimidating. After all, their entire practice revolves around having an eye for good design. In order to make this task easier, we've mapped out our favorite shops and constructed a collection of thoughtful and imaginative interior design gifts.

Here, you'll find gift ideas inspired by the ins and outs of interior design. Many of these presents capture the practice's focus on color, like the Pantone swatch coffee mug, paint chip calendar, and color wheel lapel pin. Others reimagine traditional tools like a paintbrush as delicate jewelry, in the form of a delicate necklace or a pair of mismatched earrings. Design lovers will appreciate the vibrant touches these creative products can add to their everyday routine. We've even thrown in some practical gifts, such as a professional color-matching tool or a luxurious colored pencil set for sketching ideas.

Another great gift can be something special for their own homes. We picked out modern ceramic vases for recipients to display artful bouquets on their tabletops, and a high-quality art print of a Van Gogh painting to embellish any wall. In addition, giving a new fragrance will make any space much more inviting, like a set of Nest candles that includes a variety of pleasant scents.

Finally—and fittingly—some simply pay homage to iconic designers, from Mid-century modern chair prints to Frank Lloyd Wright tea towels. We also picked out a coffee table book that explores beautiful British decor, surely bringing inspiration for their own interiors. And when it's not in use, makes a lovely addition to the living room.

No matter which gift you give, you're guaranteed to get floor-to-ceiling praise from interior design lovers!
