1. Dad who lives on the wild side

The Bentayga is the first SUV from Bentley, and it’s also the fastest SUV in the world, going from 0 to 60 miles per hour in four seconds. The front seats feature a six-program massage function, and all of the seats are heated and cooled, made out of leather from exquisitively pampered cows. Available for pre-order at Bentley Manhattan. Starting at $225,000; from


2. Boyfriend with restless leg syndrome

Is the secret to a good night’s sleep all in the wrist? The Philip Stein Sleep Bracelet uses Natural Frequency Technology to increase your body’s production of melatonin, helping you fall asleep faster and wake up feeling rested. It’s also quite nice to look at and comes in a variety of strap colors, with your choice of rose gold or stainless steel plating. $395; from 

3. Cousin who returns everything

With the Lulzbot 5 TAZ 5 3D Printer, he can build whatever he wants himself. Frequently voted the best 3D printer by technology review guides, this baby can make large and small objects out of industrial-grade materials, including ones that feel just like wood, metal or stone. $2,200; from

4. Favorite classics professor

We’re sure he’ll appreciate curling up in bed with “The Aeneid” and a nice glass of whiskey. Macallan’s latest whiskey, Rare Cask, comes from sherry oak casks that were hand selected by the brand’s whiskey maker. Less than 1 percent of the casks made the cut, and the result is a rich and spicy whiskey with deep flavor. $300; from

5. Son who thinks he’s a secret agent 

In honor of the upcoming Bond film, Omega released the Seamaster James Bond “Spectre” watch, which is the same model that Daniel Craig wears in the movie. The limited-edition watch comes in a stainless steel case with a black and gray striped NATO strap and is resistant to magnetic fields greater than 15,000 gauss. $7,500; from

6. Daughter who wants a fiancé

It may not be an engagement ring, but these T wire rings from Tiffany are a fun gift for a single gal. They come in gold, white gold or rose gold, so either buy her one to wear as a lovely accent piece or get her all of them so that she can mix and match. $1,600; from

7. Great aunt who is ready to party 

Only the best will do for her on New Year’s Eve, and that’s exactly what this fabulous champagne is. Named for Madame Clicquot herself, Veuve Cliquot’s La Grande Dame is only released when the brand’s cellar master determines that a harvest is up to the highest possible standards. Cheers! $165; from

8. Sister going through a divorce

Nothing like a bright scent to cheer her up. Eau Papaguéna is a new extrait de parfum from Élisire that will do just the trick. With its warm top notes of bergamot, grapefruit flower and cardamom, the perfume feels fresh and right for anyone looking to build new memories. $290; from

9. SoulCycle instructor who needs to chill 

Staring into an ocean painting is soothing, but staring into an ocean painting that makes ocean sounds is even better. Soundwall brings your artwork to life by transforming the piece into an audio speaker that plays music. Starting at $3,500 for an original artwork; from

10. Mother who tells you not to get her anything

How about you give her gift to someone in desperate need? Heifer International provides livestock to struggling families around the world, and your donation to them can be made in someone else’s name. A selection of animals is available, but the most impressive item is the Gift Ark, or 15 different pairs of animals. $5,000; from
