Eric Ripert runs a little outfit called Le Bernardin. Fish leap from the ocean into pans just for the

Manhattan, you can get it delivered... today. So you probably should.
This takes Dalí to the next level. It’s basically a poster that has a desk clock on it. Only it’s
not a desk clock, see. Just a photo of one. Except the clock photo itself actually tells time. Once
you recover the pieces of your blown mind, gift this thing.
$150, available at The Future Perfect, 55
Great Jones St, 212-473-2500, and 115 N 6th St, Brooklyn, 718-599-6278
Gifts that keep on giving: Human Fund donations, ponies and this six-month subscription to the world’s
best dry-aged beef. Every other week, your ecstatic giftee picks up three to seven pounds of whatever cut is
on the schedule, along with recipes. Just make sure they remember who gave it to them.
Dipping sauce. Kinky massages. Well-made pasta. Seductive showers. Classic oil fights. There’s really no
limit to what someone can get out of this set of oils and vinegars. First of all, yes, black and white
truffle varieties are included. Second of all, oil fight’s at your place.

$22-$48, available through Dec 18 at the Nylon
Pop-Up Shop, 72 Gansevoort St, and anytime at The
One Well, 165 Greenpoint Ave, Brooklyn, 347-889-6792
