This year, the gang at the Loot blog wanted to take on holiday giving from multiple angles. After all, what's right for the men in your life might not be right for the women, and the perfect gift for the person who takes impeccable care of her hair and skin is probably not the perfect gift for a person who spends all his spare time crafting the perfect home cocktail bar. As such, we've built a few gift guides to help you out. Below, our guide to the gift guides:


We divided our men's gift guide into three parts: one, for a traditionalist who loves dress watches and leather goods, and playing cards at his club. We call him Mr. London. The second is for a younger, startup guy, who likes to surround himself with whimsical gadgets, and who can make a work station anywhere from his loft apartment to a dive bar around the corner. He's Mr. Brooklyn. And finally, we have gifts for a busy, modern-living workaholic we call Mr. Tokyo. He's a guy who loves clean lines, Apple products, and a good whiskey while working late at the office.

London, 12:10 p.m.


This gift guide includes products from David Yurman, Persol, Omega, Belstaff, and Etro.

Brooklyn, 7:10 a.m.

Tokyo, 9:10 p.m.

For our gift guide for women, we looked closer to home -- by canvassing the female style experts at Bloomberg for what they would want this year, we came up with a list of perfect gifts for the wide variety of ladies in your life. From dresses and jewelry, to motorcycle jackets and portable fireplaces, it's full of ideas to inspire. You won't disappoint her this year.
