Holiday Gift Guide 2012: What to Buy for the Guy Who Has Everything

  • Shopping for men is difficult in general. Shopping for guys who seem to have everything, well, they are that much harder. We have rounded up the best gifts for this holiday season that even the guy who seems to have it all will undoubtedly die over.

  • Everybody wants to be a DJ these days. Enter the AMG Viella 12 ($16,500, amg-turntables.com) which offers simple vinyl playback and a very simplistic, uncluttered design. 

  • Every guy needs to be able to make a couple of signature cocktails. Assouline's "Vintage Cocktails" ($50, assouline.com) includes recipes for the Gin Fizz and French 75 and photos of each drink were taken at the famed Carlyle Hotel in New York City.

  • The guy who has everything probably has quite a few watches in his collection making Smythson's rotary watch box ($3,370, smythson.com) the perfect gift. The solid black leather case contains two Swiss-made rotators to ensure timepieces are always in top-notch condition.

  • Accessories with a little bit of whimsy go a long way with a guy. Jan Leslie's Monkey With Money cufflinks ($395, janleslie.com) even have moving arms and legs. Talk about a conversation starter.

  • What is it with boys and their toys? There is no hotter toy this holiday season than a 3-D printer. MakerBot's Replicator 2 3D Printer ($2,199, robotshop.com) is the hottest of the consumer options. It's the size of a toaster and easily fits on a desktop.

  • Consider Bufori cars to be Malaysia's answer to Rolls-Royce. The car is only available in two options including the classic La Joya sports coupe and the Geneva (starts at $350,000, buforiusa.com). Amenities include a steamer built into the trunk of the car to remove creases from a business suit before a meeting, a make-up palette that rises from the dashboard, and a hot-water dispenser in the center console for making tea on the road. In other words, it's going to put the other cars in your driveway to shame.

  • You can tell just how stylish a man is by the suitcase that he carries. Salvatore Ferragamo's brown alligator trolley ($18,900, available at Salvatore Ferragamo boutiques nationwide 800-628-8916) might just be chic enough to bring back the bygone era when traveling was actually a luxury experience.

  • Guys who have everything will probably unanimously agree that they can never have enough watches. The Hublot King Gold watch ($48,200, tourneau.com) uses an alloy that the company says is "top secret." And who doesn't want to own something that is top secret?

  • For sneaker freaks with a serious penchant for luxury opt for Hermès' Quantum sneakers ($1,050, hermes.com). The sneakers come with street cred and bragging rights all at once.

  • Who doesn't love a seriously fancy umbrella like Burberry Prorsum's Bakelite dog handle umbrella ($850, barneys.com). Here's to hoping whoever you gift this to doesn't lose it.
