ULTRASONE Performance 880 headphones $499.99 Manfrotto might be best known for their tripods and photographic accessories but did you know they sold excellent headphones too? At the heart of these closed headphones is a 40mm titanium-coated transducer. The driver enables high-precision mapping of music and speech and, in particular, the clear high-frequency range draws every nuance of the music, while the bass range draws drums and effects impressively, without placing them too much in the foreground. Despite the closed construction principle, the Performance 880 presents itself with an airy sound, as you would expect with open headphones. So it combines the advantages of shielding a closed model with an ‘open’ sound that is transmitted over the entire frequency of human hearing. Treat him to a set of headphones that will make future trips an absolute pleasure! LoopRope from $16.95 Need to secure something on your travels? We have a few of these versatile items from LoopRope and they have proved so useful on so many occasions, from sailing trips to securing items while on the move. Put simply, LoopRope is a re-invention of the age-old and very dangerous bungee cord. From lashing down the gear for a trip to using as a clothesline at camp to quickly docking sports boats and jet skis to even using as a pet leash. The versatility of LoopRope means the opportunities are endless – it is fully adjustable, never tangles, safer than traditional bungee cords and linkable so you can create custom cargo nets when and where you need them. Once you use a LoopRope, you will find it will be the only bungee system you ever need. Use it once, use it everywhere! Cashmere and silk hopsack blazer from Brunello Cucinelli $5,795 The substantial and slightly shiny texture of this cashmere and silk hopsack gives a refined touch to the new jacket, which offers the traditional fit of Brunello Cucinelli style: the cut remains close-fitted through the chest and shoulders to highlight the male silhouette. A cupro half-lining completes the garment. Intuos Pro S from WACOM $249.95 The incredibly portable Intuos Pro S from WACOM is a remarkable device and arguably their finest pen tablet to date. It is probably best suited for artists and designers who want to work completely digital from start to finish, since it lets you illustrate, edit or design with more natural creative control than ever before. With its exceptional pen performance (complete with pressure sensitivity, tilt-response and virtually lag-free tracking) and advanced wireless capabilities, you could even use it just to take notes as you travel. Online photography course from Photography Concentrate from $97 For the person who wants to take their photography skills to the next level, an online course with Photography Concentrate is a great way to learn and makes the perfect gift for that difficult-to-buy-for person who already has everything they might want or need. With this course, you can download materials that you can read (and watch – there are some videos, too) at your leisure, regardless of whether you have an internet connection. Tips are presented in a really clear and straight forward way, and beautiful packaged for photographers of all abilities. SSH067 Astron watch from Seiko $2,500 The Astron series from Seiko represents the world’s first GPS solar watches. By connecting to the GPS network, the Astron adjusts at the touch of a button to your timezone and, by taking all the energy it needs from light alone, never needs a battery change. Mavic 2 Pro drone from DJI $1,599 Get ready to see the bigger picture this Christmas with the Mavic 2, DJI‘s flagship consumer drone built for pros and enthusiasts. The Mavic 2 Pro is equipped with the all-new Hasselblad L1D-20c camera, which sports a 1-inch CMOS sensor, allowing you to explore more of the world smoothly and safely. AWAKEN [08:00 GMT] EDP 3.4oz fragrance from TUMI $100 Life in rhythm, connected and attuned to the precision of Greenwich Mean Time, AWAKEN [08:00 GMT] is an energizing fragrance that is refreshing, revitalizing and stimulating. From TUMI, a brand best known for its quality luggage, this fragrance has top notes of bergamot, grapefruit and coriander which are balanced by mid and base notes of clary sage, fir needle, cypress, frankincense, patchouli and cedarwood. It makes a perfect complement to UNWIND [20:00 GMT], TUMI’s other fragrance designed for global citizens. Large Carryall from Shinola $1,295 There are many ways to weekend.

  1. I hope the LoopRope makes a wired headphone or earphone or charger cable that does not tangle as well. I don’t like using all those wire winder/ holder things. It will make a great gift for our techie friends and family.

  2. Looking for the perfect travel bag to gift a husband landed me here. That Shinola bag just made my eyes sparkle. That soft leather, fine stitching, and simply beautiful design are just wow. Am I really gifting this or keeping it to myself?

  3. OMG thank you so much for the ideas and especially the Astron watch from Seiko I’m just in love with it, Looking forward to pass this article to my parents so that they could get me the watch ;)

  4. I’m not sure that headphones are just for him – I’d like a pair of those headphones too please. They’d be on my list to Santa.

    1. For me high quality headphones are non-negotiable. They take the stress out of travelling, you can shut out the world and relax.

    2. I totally agree with you, Steve. I never really appreciated the difference until getting my first pair of really good quality headphones. They were worlds apart from anything I had used previously.

  5. That cashmere blazer looks very stylish. I’m sorry to say that I’ve had to take overvas my husband’s wardrobe manageress. He has always been very reluctant to invest in quality. I argue that you should buy something that will look as good in a decade’s time as it does on the first day that you wear it.

    1. There’s a lot to be said for quality over quantity, Cindy! I met a minimalist on the train a few years ago – he was ultra-extreme with his minimalism (I though) to the point that when guests came for dinner, they had to bring their own chairs!! (and, if I’m not mistaken, cutlery, also). Utterly extreme, of course, but one thing I do recall him saying was that when he did buy something, he went for top quality and items that would last.

  6. Even though the time and date are almost always in front of us on a phone or screen, I still think that every man should have a stylish watch like that Seiko timepiece.

    1. Ha… hi Kristof… I have just the Mavic (not the Mavic 2 Pro) and even that is a nice piece of kit. DJI really seem to have cornered the market with these, and the Mavic series is incredible compact compared to some of the earlier DJI drones that preceded it, making it the perfect travel cmopanion (aside from the family of course!).

  7. I swear by Wacom products. As a graphic artist, I’ve had to go through a lot of pen and tablet brands, but have always gone back to the original Wacom. They have a range of products for any budget, too.

  8. I’ve had a few Manfrotto items being a photographer. I’m that person who wants to have his things be the same brand, if possible. That goes for accessories. I didn’t know that they now have headphones. Kind of left field, or maybe not.
