Experts Weigh In: What You Should Really Get Him For the Holidays

Conjuring up a stellar gift idea for the man in your life is no easy feat, which is why we called upon five of the most stylish gents in the world to share their perfect present picks. 

Adam Rapoport, Editor-in-Chief of Bon Appétit

"If you really love him, buy him a black, Staub cast-iron braiser. No kitchen item could be more manly, and as any home cook can tell you, none more useful--especially during these cold, blustery months ahead."

Joe Zee, Editor-in-Chief of Yahoo Style

"I'm always in an airport running to catch a flight with my passport in one pocket, my wallet in another, and my boarding pass between my teeth. This wallet is the perfect organiser for any travelling man."

Jawbone Mini Jambox ($130)
"For the man who needs his music with him at all times. Perfect for impromptu dance parties."

Derek Blasberg, Fashion Writer, Editor, and Author

"Mathematically speaking, for the amount of time we boys spend in jeans, we should make sure we're getting the best. 3x1 does a custom fit, and it's all made in America."

Nick Bilton, Columnist for The New York Times

"I know this might sound like an obvious gift for the man (or woman) who has everything, but most people I know have forgone the Kindle for the fancier iPad. To quote Pretty Woman, 'Big mistake. Huge.' I've learned that the Kindle is an imperative gadget because it does one thing, and one thing only, which is displays books. It doesn't interrupt me with text messages, vibrate with emails, tweet at me, or even tell the time. It simply lets me disappear into a mirage of storytelling and leave this busy little world behind for a little while. What's a better gift than that?"

Johnny Wujek, Creative Director of America's Next Top Model

"The power of stylish luggage speaks volumes. S. McKellar's line of travel bags, suitcases, and accessories is perfect for the holiday season with all of the back and forth that most people will be doing. This line brings back the days when people used to dress up to go to the airport, because you can still wear your comfy luxury wear, but when you have one of these bags on your arm, or you're pulling it behind you it really upgrades your overall look! I would consider this an investment piece. Anyone would be lucky to pack their their belongings into any of these pieces."
