What To Buy: The Leading Men In Your Life

(Dominique Charriau/Getty Images Europe; George Pimentel/Getty Images North America; Bauer Griffin; PacificCoastNews.com; Stickman/Bauer Griffin)We've searched high and low to bring you our top picks for the hardest people on your shopping lists: men. We've also scoped out a wide-range of characters your favorite guy might relate to, in order to make your shopping a little less strenuous.

The Guy Who Has Everything


(Burberry London Woven Silk Tie, $150; Nordstrom Terry Shawl Robe, $98.50; Fossil Estate 10-Piece Watch Box, $158; Silverlit Interactive Bluetooth Remote Control Enzo Ferrari Car, $79.95; Arthur George Outlined Diamond Men's Socks, $30)

Our version of the Gatsby-esque guy who has everything is portrayed by none other than the mystery man himself: Mr. Leonardo DiCaprio. We think a luxurious robe and Burberry tie is something he will never tire of, while a fun pair of socks is something new to add to his daunting wardrobe. He will need a watch box to flaunt his collection and want to play with a new, iPhone-operated toy Ferrari.

The Musician

(Taschen's "The Beatles: On the Road 1964-1966" by Harry Benson, $55.99; Roots NHL 2012 Award Jacket, $528; GUESS Night Fragrance for Men, $65;  Ultimate Ears BOOM Wireless Speaker/Speakerphone, $199.95; G-SHOCK x Eminem Limited Edition 30th Anniversary Timepiece, $180)

If your music lover is a Drake fan, he will love a Roots jacket (just like the ones the star has specially made for his concerts). If he's more of an Eminem groupie, he will be thrilled with the rapper's limited edition watch for G-SHOCK. All performers can benefit from a little spritz of cologne––and two lucky winners will win the fragrance, along with the gold-plated headphones (by liking our post on Facebook)! Finally, all music men can appreciate a good speaker and book about the beloved Beatles.   

The Techie

(East Dane Griffin Assembly iPhone Case, $40; Mophie Juice Pack Helium Battery Case for iPhone 5/5s, $79.95; The North Face 'E-Tip Denali' Fleece Gloves, $40; Marc by Marc Jacobs Mesh Plaid Tablet Case, $78; Cole Haan 15" Messenger Bag for MacBook Pro, $379.95)

Our tech guy is played by Mr. Justin Timberlake circa The Social Network premiere. In real life, the talented singer/actor also has a stake in Myspace, making him a bonafide sexy techie in our book. We think he would love a Cole Haan messenger bag for his laptop and gear; fleece tech gloves for scrolling and texting in the cold; a leather iPhone case that doubles as a wallet; a Marc Jacobs tablet case in a hipster print; and a battery case for his phone––so he never has an excuse for not calling you back.

The Traveler

(Fossil Estate Passport Case, $55; Roots Omers Pack-tribe Backpack, $418; East Dane Gifts Merkur 3-Piece Travel Shave Set, $74; Filson Flask, $78; Fossil 'Grant' Twist Leather Watch, $175)

Your hopeless wanderer will love a vintage-looking backpack for toting his travel essentials, which just might include a Fossil passport case, leather flask and retro shave kit. The Johnny Depp-type will also love a good-looking watch to keep track of which time zone he is in.

The Sports Enthusiast

(Fossil Estate Rugby Travel Kit, $60; Taschen's "Guts and Glory: The Golden Age of American Football" by Neil Leifer, $32.47; Fossil Estate Tire iPhone 5 Case, $30; Nike+ FuelBand SE, $149.95; Infomotion 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball, $299.95)

Help your honey perfect his shots with a Smart Sensor basketball and achieve his pipe dreams with a Nike+ FuelBand––both of which utilize the iPhone to provide real feedback. The Tom Brady in your life will love a football-shaped travel toiletry bag as well as a coffee table book about his favorite Sunday (and Monday and sometimes Thursday) pastime. Finally, protect your competitive companion's phone with a tire tread case.
