2.  For the fragrance fans in your life the Jo Malone Cologne Collection is perfect. It features five travel-sized bottles including Lime Basil & Mandarin, English Pear & Freesia, Blackberry & Bay, Peony & Blush Suede and Amber & Lavender Colognes. The beauty of this brand is that the fragrances are built for layerying. That basically means you get five bottles BUT you ultimately have infinite combinations. $100

4. Senso Glove - This is for my golf loving boo. The skinny on this glove is that it teaches you the right way to hold your club. It is the first and only golf glove with built-in sensors that read the pressure of your grip. According to the website, practicing with SensoGlove will improve your golfer's grip pressure for a smooth, consistent swing that delivers greater distance, enhanced precision and lower scores. Translation he'll be in a good mood when he comes home from the course. $89
