Last-Minute Holiday Gifts for Guys – 2017 edition!

Frank Ponterio – December 15, 2017

Looking for some last-minute shopping ideas for the guys on your list? Here are some of my favorites from 2017 that are sure to please - available online in time for year-end gifting!


Bellissima! The Italian Automotive Renaissance 1945 to 1975 ($45)

A great addition to the library of any car lover or design aficionado, this stunning book showcases the very best of Italian-designed automobiles and motorcycles from the post–World War II era.


Alicia Adams Alpaca Classic Throw ($445)

Luxurious, softer than cashmere, warm yet light weight – with more than 80 colors to choose from!


Link AKC Smart Dog Collar ($99)

Technology meets man’s best friend. This phone-app connected collar monitors Fido’s location, activity and more.


Fucking Fabulous by Tom Ford (From $310)

Tom Ford – designer, filmmaker, style icon, and perennially at the top of the naughty list – has another hit on his hands with this latest addition to his Private Blend fragrance line. With key notes of bitter almond oil, tonka bean, orris root, leather, cashmeran and clary sage oil, let the swooning commence! (Open this one away from the kids’ table…)


Siren Song Dinner Plates (Set of four, $64)

These cool (melamine!) dinner plates are guaranteed to up your guy’s kitchen game – the patterns remind me of marbled Italian papers you’ll find on any stroll through the shops of Florence. 


Apple Watch Hermès / Stainless Steel Case with Noir Gala Leather Single Tour Rallye ($1,299)

Apple and Hermès have teamed up to create a line of watches they refer to as ‘the ultimate tool for modern life’. The Single Tour Rallye references the design of the classic Hermès driving glove.


Partagás Serie E No. 2 (Market price)

Finally, for those who have a cigar lover on their list (and are inclined to plan ahead), consider a box of my favorite cigars - the Partagás Serie E No. 2. We can’t tell you where to get these, but if you do a little online research you’ll find them. (Or, do it my way: head to Havana and bring an empty suitcase!)


With best wishes to you and yours for a wonderful holiday season and a fantastic 2018,
