Here's a list of things we'd be very happy to have under the tree (or in this case, hanging from the fireplace) come December 25th.

Kingston Digital DataTraveler SE9: The perfect little gadget to attach to your keychain with a price tag less than $12.00. It's got 16GB of space, which is more than enough to hold all of your most sensitive digital information, provided it isn't dozens of HD sex tapes. [Amazon]


Fitbit Zip Wireless Activity Tracker: We're big fans of the technology behind the Nike+ FuelBand, but it has one problem: not everyone wants a clunky bracelet on at all times. This little thing from Fitbit does the same kinda of physical data collecting the FuelBand does, but it attaches to your hip or pocket and stays out of the way. [Amazon]


Smythson Small Leather Notebook: Every guy needs a good solid notebook. Many other alternativs (we like Moleskin and Field Notes) will work just fine, but if you want to give a gift with a little more oomph to it, you can't do any better than this leather notebook from Smythson. It's from one of the world's most renowned stationers making it an elegant statement piece for any office desk. [Mr. Porter]


Bowers & Wilkins C5 In-Ear Headphone: Sure, those Beats by Dr. Dre have a great sound to them, but these are a classier option with great sounding (if not better sounding) audio. [Amazon]

Diptyque Candle: A candle is probably not the manliest thing in the world, but a great smelling office or bedroom can be game changing. Nothing smells better than this guy. [Amazon]


Etón BoostTurbine2000: If Hurricane Sandy taught us something, it's "always be prepared". This stocking-size device provides a durable back-up battery with a hand turbine power generator that provides power when there isn't any. [Etón]


Nice Parking Cards: A fun stocking stuffer that you can leave in your car for those rare (or common if you live in LA) moments of frustration. [Jack Spade]


Buckler's Chapped Skin Remedy: Every guy needs lotion, especially during the cold winter season. This stuff is far better than whatever you can find at your local drug store and comes in a beautiful glass jar that dresses up your bathroom a little too. [The Motley]


Jack Spade Mill Leather Phone Slip: This is a great looking case for your iPhone that allows you to stylishly keep it safe when not in use. We like slip cases because it gives protection when you need it but allows you to use the phone the way Apple intended (bare boned) when actually using it. [Jack Spade]


Best Made Company Playing Cards: Printed in Erlanger, Kentucky by the United States Playing Card Company (legendary makers of the Bicycle and Bee brands), these playing cards are way cooler than your average deck. We love the geometric design and occasional lightening bolt. [Best Made Company]
