The UrbanDaddy Miami Holiday Gift Guide

Your holiday conundrum: matching the right gift to the right person. Luckily, we've done the work for you this year. Ball's in your court…

Cognac-Infused Cigars
FOR THE CIGAR AFICIONADO

Cognac-Infused Cigars

These stogies, handcrafted in Honduras using the Dominican's finest tobacco, are bound with paper soaked in Louis XIII cognac. So when the cigar burns, you're treated to wafts of the liqueur—with notes of fig, clove and leather. Additional snifter not included.

Artsy Towels at the Standard
FOR THE BEACH BUNNY

Artsy Towels at the Standard

In Miami, beachgoers are art lovers, and art lovers are beachgoers. Here, then, is the perfect gift for both of their sides: a limited-edition terrycloth beach towel with prints from contemporary artists like Peter Doig and Yoshitomo Nara. Bonus: they're big enough for two.

"Miami Babylon" by Gerald Posner
FOR THE GOSSIP (OR YOURSELF)

"Miami Babylon" by Gerald Posner

Whether or not you've woken up on the floor of the Versace mansion, you'll appreciate this tome, which chronicles the power players that make this city the fascinating, seedy beast that it is. Posner leaves no bold-faced name unscathed, including nightlife's Michael Capponi, real estate's Jorge Perez and playboy Thomas Kramer. (Hint: there are sex parties.)

Eno's Tasting Card
FOR THE WINE LOVER

Eno's Tasting Card

This present is a lot like a coffee-shop gift card…except so much better. Slip the card into one of the futuristic wine-dispensing machines at Eno's, and your friend can choose from two to six ounces of 64 different bottles of wine, from Australian syrahs to French cabs.

$20, $50 or $100, Eno's, 920 Lincoln Rd, 305-695-1119

Tequila Cookies at Taylor Made
FOR THE SWEET-TOOTHED LUSH

Tequila Cookies at Taylor Made

If you crossed Senor Frog's with Mrs. Field's, you'd get these: lime shortbread cookies topped with tequila glaze and Hawaiian sea salt. Nothing livens up a holiday party like a batch of liquor-spiked baked goods…

Available at 786-252-3563 or email here

A World Tour at River Oyster Bar
FOR THE HALF-SHELL ENTHUSIAST

A World Tour at River Oyster Bar

On any given night, this downtown oyster heaven has half a dozen different types of bivalves—from Kumamotos from Northern California to plump, briny nubbins from Massachusetts. We recommend bestowing this gift to someone who will bring you along for the ride.

$50 or $100 certificates, ROB, 650 S. Miami Ave, 305-530-1915
