Those of us who celebrate Christmas are making our lists and checking them twice. When we’re stumped, we do as we do always: Seek inspiration on Dribbble. You guys are making some great stuff: prints, pints, blocks, books, posters, coasters and more. When you’re ready to take a breather and buy, there’s something on Dribbble for everyone on your list, from your caffeine-addict roommate to your book-editor aunt.
You’ve been supporting each other with your clicking fingers since 2009. Now it’s time to back up your “likes” with your dollars. We’ve offered up a few of 2013’s for-sale shots below.
Browse. Buy. Repeat.
