  1. For the “FOR HIM” list I like #1 through #7. For the “FOR ALL” list I like #2 through #5 I especially like #4 because I already own the device and know how it functions.

  2. I really like the gift ideas for gentleman. I think as a stylish gentleman we are sometimes hard to shop for but thinking out the box like with the tote bag, whiskey or fragrance would be cool to receive, in my opinion, because those are the things I tend to forget to get for myself. Awesome job !

  3. For Her: i love the bowtie bracelet by Kiel James Patrick. it’s different and very distinct with creativity and new patterns. Also, you can’t ever go wrong with the Hermes bracelet. I wore a few for different videos i’ve done in the past.

    For Him: I love the Stubbs and Wootton slipper shoe. I think i saw this type of style shoe on a year or two ago with a aztec embroidery pattern on the top foot portion. It was real nice. I’m glad to see more of this style taking form this year. It’s easy to slip on and you don’t have to wear socks. Throw on some chinos and a blazer and you’re good to go.

  4. I love this compiled list.

    My fave items:

    For her – The Tory Burch Riding Boots, Frédérique Constant Watch and Hermes Bracelet lead the pack as the most classic pieces to me. Not at all faddish and easily remixed with great staple pieces within her wardrobe. Also, that Celine Tote will not disappoint.

    For him – The Dockers Alpha Khakis, Creed Cologne and the Belstaff Jacket are my picks. I love items that give me versatility.

    For all – iPad Mini (great gift for kids and pedestrian commuters), Jo Malone Candles and the Keurig Brewer (Mom just asked for one).

    This is a great list of luxe items for gift giving or….personal indulgence! Love it!

  5. Women: Celine – Boston Tote. For some reason the shape of the bag reminds me of my hips.

    Men: . Creed – Millisime Imperial Fragrance. I live in Miami so there is eye candy everywhere – so I tend to focus on how a man smells, the cut of his suit, and his tie clip/cuff links.

  6. What an awesome list, just in time for the holidays! Kudos to the Luxurious Prototype team for providing such diverse ideas.

    For Her, I love the Tory Burch Amanda Riding Boots, Céline Boston Tote, Kiel James Patrick Lily Pount Meadows Bow Bracelet, Jimmy Choo Leopard Print Slippers and the Eddie Borgo Pave Crystals Hinge Ring. All great gift ideas and it shows the women in your life that you actually put some thought and effort into their presents.

    For Him, the Creed Millisime Imperial Fragrance, Jack Spade Dipped Coal Bag, David Yurman Maritime Cufflinks, and the Stubbs and Wootton Camo Velvet Slippers lead the pack for me. Its the perfect mix of classic and on trend pieces.

  7. I love, love, love the gift ideas for men. My favs are 1,5,6, & 7. For women I like 1,3,& 8. I wish they had some fragrance options for women. They have some marvelous women scents out this season.

  8. FOR HER – Céline Tote (#3) is fabulous and certainly versatile.
    FOR HIM – Bow tie (#1) is nice and who doesn’t appreciate a good smelling man?… Creed Fragrance (#3)

  9. I’ve reviewed the holiday gift list. Most of the items are rich for my budget, but if price weren’t a factor there a definitely some gifts I’d choose.

    For her I’d but #2 for a significant other. It’s very fashionable.

    For him, I’d buy myself the #3 and #6.

    For all, I’d choose #4 and #5. Both are awesome pieces of equipment!

  10. To Luxurious Prototype: What a wide array of choices! Very nice.

    FOR HER: [1] & [6] would make excellent gifts. The simplicity and minimalism of their designs works for me. Most people call this bland or boring, but I think that the simple things are timeless.

    FOR HIM: [6] & [7] for sure! Adding [6] to a shirt can make for a little added flare. [7] I’d make it my “Little Black Jacket”!

    FOR ALL: None of the above. lol I’d take a good book or more clothes!

  11. Impeccable choices in variety of styles, tastes & Interests. FOR ALL: all of the items are worthy investments being that they promote a better/healthier you physically, socially & mentally. Great Ideas
