This is it. The holidays. The high season of gift-giving. Do it right, and you’ll reap 12 sweet months’
worth of rewards. Mess it up, and... let’s just say you don’t want to mess this up. But don’t worry:
we have you covered. Behold, a gift for everyone on your list.
FOR THE SECRET AGENT
The Biometric Suitcase
You’ve got friends, and those friends have enemies. So in the name of security, this suitcase—which
opens only with the owner’s fingerprint—will keep their stuff locked down. You never know when WikiLeaks
might be highly interested in your friends’ cardigans.
FOR THE GENTLEMAN OF LEISURE
The Night Owl Gift Set
You need just two things for an evening of superhuman indulgence: a hip flask and a patterned bow tie. This
boxed set gives you both at once, guaranteeing earthshaking levels of New Year’s Eve revelry. Moonshine
FOR THE TEMPTRESS
Toad Lillie Made-to-Order Lingerie
We’ll go out on a limb and say you know at least one person who would appreciate a few silky underthings,
especially the kind with vintage flourishes like French seams and silk gussets. And most importantly, made
according to her unique measurements. Now, for the surreptitious measuring...
FOR THE CRAFTSMAN
Puukko Knife-Making Kit
Nothing says Christmas like a reindeer—or more particularly, a knife made from parts of a reindeer. This
kit gives the lucky giftee hide, antler and a four-inch blade, along with the lanyards and glue they’ll
need to make it all into a Scandinavian puukko knife. They’ll call it... Blitzen.
FOR THE PARTY CRASHER
Photos of the World’s Best Parties
This tome manages to capture some of the best party snaps of the ’60s and ’70s (no slouches, as party
decades go)—including appearances by Andy Warhol, Carla Bruni and Uma Thurman. And possibly your Uncle
Frank, who will appreciate finding out.
FOR THE EPICUREAN
Petrossian Caviar Solitaire
Fair warning: there will be at least one person on your list who already has all of these things, in which
case, we can only recommend 50 grams of high-end caviar and a mother-of-pearl spoon. Even if they’ve
already got those... they can probably use more.
