Tech Gift Guide 2012: The Design Maven

Not so long ago, we released a gift guide for the gadget guru -- you know, the guy who has all the hardware and can hardly function. Today we tackle another tech type: the design maven.

He's the guy with flawless taste. In his house, in his office, nothing's out of place.

She's the girl who won't stand for imperfection. She wants everything ingenious, both in form and function.

He doesn't need Apple to tell him design mattered. She covets only items most lovingly engineered.

What do you get the tech-loving aesthete? We've got some stunning products in the gallery (below) for you to feast your eyes on. Do you have any suggestions for what to get the design-conscious individual in your life? Leave your thoughts in the comments, or tweet us @HuffPostTech.
