Architect's Gift Guide: Top 10 things to buy the architect in your life

I should probably start by letting you know that today is my birthday.

So this is effectively MY birthday wish list.

If you have an architect in your lift, you know they have discerning taste and can be difficult to buy for.

Sculptural or natural ceramics are always a good things to go for. As is any piece of black clothing or a good notebook. I prefer Leuchtturm, but I’ll never snub a black moleskine that’s gifted to me. You might stay away from Architect books, as we can be quite picky/already own them all. But if you gift an architect an El Croquis, you will win for life.

  1. I love the minimalist, sculptural quality of this Hadron Watering Can from Anthropologie

    I already own this one from CB2, but the great thing about watering cans is they can double as sculpture or even act as a vase for some beautiful greenery

  2. Every architect gal I know has the best, minimal, geometric earrings so I think these Burberry link earrings will do the trick

  3. Architect rule #1: All black, everything black. including This black dress from A.P.C.
