Back by a popular demand!
Everyday products can get pretty boring. Sure, they serve rational functionality to the user. But why can’t they be creative? Today we will showcase some creative products that you can purchase for yourself, your friends, your family, or your special someone!
Every single product listed below was handpicked. If you’re wondering about my selection process, I’d be more than happy to tell you about it.
I select products based on their usability and value. I personally hate wasting money on dumb things. Therefore, I try to select products that I would personally use on a daily or weekly basis. Take for example the ‘Fitness Ball Chair’ listed below.
If your work consists of you sitting all day, then you should seriously consider your posture and back. Having health problems down the road won’t be fun for you or your wallet. A product like this will definitely benefit your life and is worth every penny. If you don’t believe me, feel free to do some research yourself. Here, let me Google that for you.
Today we’ve collected twenty-five creative products for you to check out. These gifts are perfect for designers, developers, tech enthusiasts, freelancers, and web professionals. We hope you’ll find these products cool, clever, and creative. Enjoy!

The benefits of sitting on an exercise ball while working promotes flexibility, coordination, motor skills, core strengthening, and balance.
“Active sitting” means that your body, when positioned on top of an exercise ball, is constantly making small adjustments, often imperceptible, to remain balanced and thus is constantly exercising a large group of muscles in doing so. By strengthening your body’s core muscle group you help improve your posture, have better balance and guard against back injuries.
