Holiday Gift Guide

My rule of thumb for giving gifts ... Give something the recipient would love, but wouldn't normally get him or herself

Here are some of my favorite picks

  • Mink Earmuffs from the Fur Salon at Saks … A little luxury for the ears
  • Agent Provocateur … Fantasy lingerie with ranges for all tastes, naughty and nice
  • J.Crew Cashmere Socks … Warm tootsies are a must
  • Kate’s Paperie Eco-Friendly Letterpress Journal … For taking stock and saving trees  
  • Fresh Sugar Body Polish … The best body scrub for all your parts 
  • Ernest Sewn Custom Made Jeans … The perfect fit guaranteed 
  • Judi Rosen Unearthened Large Necklace … Because crystals continue to rock, and this one comes on a 24-inch silver chain
  •  Diana F Lomography 1960s Cult Camera … So retro! (don’t forget the 35 mm film) 
  • Illustrado: A Novel by Miguel Syjuco … This prize-winning novel about art and identity is seductive, lushly written, oh, and brilliant 
  • Jo Malone Bath Oil Set … A talc-free fragrance that as earthy as it is luxe

  • TOMS One for One – New Eye wear Collection … Not only cool shades, but this is philanthropic gift giving
  • The Art of Shaving Travel Kit … Because he loves his baby face when he’s on-the-go
  • iPhone 4 Birdseye Maple Custom Case … 300 limited edition cases by a fantastic artist – not your ordinary skin
  • Ricky Powell’s Public Access: Ricky Powell Photographs 1985-2005 … Just cause
  • Chrome Soyuz Waterproof Laptop and More Bag … Women aren’t the only ones who carry their wares around the city
  • Ben Sherman Achilles Boot ... Because Jay-Z is over Timberland
  • Mad Men Seasons 1-4 Disc Set … Every man dreams of being Don Draper, and Season 5 doesn’t premiere til March
  • WeSC Voodoo Revenge Te-shirt … Because you LOVE his friends
  • Tribe Skateboard … Follow the Tribe, the finest wood from this Brooklyn-based company

  • Photo Session with Photojournalist/Candid Portrait Artist, Peter Pabon
