Even Q couldn’t assemble a list of objects so intriguing.
Live and Let Die
Stock a Harry Allen Pile wine rack (Velocity Art and Design, 251 Yale Avenue North; 206-749-9575) with your gent’s favorite grape. And slip the Menu wine thermometer (Clover House, 900 Lenora Street, suite 140; 206-625-0150) in his stocking so he can live it up right while listening to The Whore Moans’s new album (Sonic Boom Records, 514 15th Avenue East; 206-568-2666).
The Spy Who Loved Me
Your bro will stay incognito but warm in a Goods beanie and scarf combo (1112 Pike Street; 206-622-0459) and appreciate the Kikkerland survival tool (Retrofit Home, 1419 12th Avenue; 206-568-4663) when escaping from one of his shenanigans. And any on-the-go spy guy would love a gorgeous Want les Essentiels de la Vie passport wallet (Blackbird, 5410 22nd Avenue Northwest; 206-547-2524).
For Your Eyes Only
A pair of Cocktails sunglasses from Initium (Asher Anson, 2038 Northwest Market Street; 206-789-1687) suit the beaches of Saint Tropez or the summit at Blackcomb. And a copy of The New York Times: the Complete Front Pages will entertain your brainy beau, should he manage to pull himself away from Wii Pinball.
Give the man with high-brow taste a double-ply washed cashmere sweater from 230-year-old Scottish company Drumohr (JackStraw, 1117 First Avenue; 206-462-6236). A not-so-traditional double-sided ascot from Michael Cepress (417 East Loretta Place; 206-334-7602) will make him look like a million.
