Core77 Holiday Gift Guide 2008: 77 Design Gifts Under $77! Answered

Our friends at Core77 just put out their 3rd annual Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide! It's a list of 77 design-themed gifts under (you guessed it) $77.

There's some great stuff in there, once you get past the flashing neon and straw-dancing barbies, including some sweet ninja throwing star magnets, Nintendo wall graphics, and a device called the BottleBob that punches a perfect straw-hole in soda bottle caps. They finish up with a DIY Gift Box Instructable from member blightdesign!

I found plenty of things I'd love to buy, and even more I was inspired to make!

Definitely check it out - this is a great list for inspiring some fantastic holiday projects.


I would love to see what my Father-in-law's reaction to them would be :-) He's quite a good sport and would probably laugh too.

hmmm... but they're grannies, shouldn't you get him racing grampies?

VERNORS!!!! We had this growing up in MI, and once I found it in TX. My mom still sends us gift packs of the stuff. Yum! And Kudos to blightdesign! Awwww yeah.

That's odd...it's there now. I swear i'm not crazy. I clicked on the link to the guide and got a 404, when I added a 7 (it was core7.com), it worked. Weird.

MUST... HAVE... SHURIKEN!!!!!!!!!!!!
