Even if you love shopping, sometimes it can be hard to find the right gift for the guy in your life who seems to have everything he could possibly want. But everyone loves presents, especially when they are the type of extravagant offering that the person never would have bought for themselves but will happily use often. NJ.com rounded up a great list of gifts when money is no object and here are 8 very special holiday treats for the man who has almost everything, but is sure to heartily appreciate some of the finest things in life.

If the way to his heart is through his stomach, go for a carnivore’s dream: Dartagnan’s Japanese Wagyu beef boneless rib roast. This cut of meat is only available from them during the holiday season, weighs in at at least 11 pounds and is made from the highest grade (A-5). It can serve at least 30 people, or be used to dine on for many scrumptious meals, and is on sale for $899.99.


For the ultimate nightcap, let him enjoy this Lagavulin limited edition 25-year-old Scotch, bottled at cask strength. It was created to celebrated the Scottish distillery’s 200th anniversary. According to Forbes, it’s “more voluptuous and complex on the palate” than the 8 Year Old variety also released this year. Only 8,000 bottles have been produced, with 1,200 available in the United States, so if he’s the type of guy who likes to host exclusive cocktail nights, it’s worth investing $1,200 in this rare drink.


If he wants restaurant quality espresso at home, get him this Breville Oracle espresso machine, available at Sur La Table for $1,999, which promises “groundbreaking automatic dosing, grinding and tamping, hands-free milk texturing, and a one-touch Americano button.”

If he’s pressed for time but loves to get his workouts in, this climbing wall treadmill from Hammacher Schlemmer could be just the exercise booster he needs (but doesn’t know it yet). It promises “endless vertical climbs” and says that it allows “climbers to scale to the height of Mt. Everest in their own home.” Yes, it costs $9,950, but they’ll never need a gym membership again!

Give him the chance to perfect his golf game at any time of day or night, regardless of the weather, with this $4,995 Brunswick Macdonald Putting Green from Restoration Hardware. It’ll keep him busy for years to come, since it offers “50,000 different combinations of rises, breaks, uphills and downslopes.”

For the man on the go who wants to look business chic at every important meeting, gift him this David Yurman Classic 43.5mm Chronograph Watch, which retails for $4,600. Not only is it an extremely precise wearable work of art, offering the date as well as an hour, minute and second window, it’s made of “anthracite matte alligator strap with stainless steel deployant clasp.”

If he’s a jetsetter, he’ll want the kind of luggage that’s suitable for any occasion and that won’t slow him down. This Tumi Short Trip Packing Case ($1,195), available in silver or black, offers him everything he needs as he bids bon voyage to the office and heads off to either a work trip or a luxury vacation (perhaps the hotel considered the world’s best, Gili Lankanfushi in the Maldives). This sturdy aluminum suitcase features 2 TSA integrated combination locks, a retractable handle and four dual-spinning wheels, so he won’t have to waste a moment getting to his destination.


If you think scooters are just for kids, think again. The URB-E Black Label City Edition Foldable Electric Scooter ($1,899) is pure adult sleekness that will let him zip around town and forego taxis or the subway when he’s in the big city. It can go up to 15 miles per hour and its battery can last up to four hours, giving him plenty of time to go wherever he needs to. The Wall Street Journal declared it “way fun” and wrote that it “moves through a crowd in a bubble of astonished murmurs.” If he’s the impatient type who also loves being the center of attention, this scooter is a no-brainer.
