Baby, it’s cold outside, but these gifts are hot.
Written by Jacqui Devaney, Compiled by Niki Jones
We’ve curated a list of gifts that are worthy of (and can probably only be afforded by) James Bond himself. We sought out the most coveted and opulent toys and gadgets that are sure to fill any grown man with a giddy sense of excitement. From the Grado PS 1000 headphones that are a hybrid of wood and metal that deliver neutral tonality and rich bass, to the Beretta DT11 Sporting 12GA that combines luxury and sportsmanship for the serious shotgunning competitor, this is the ultimate “sugar-plum fairy dancing in your head” wish list. Just in case late Uncle Jim leaves you a cool couple million in his will or you hit the mega million lottery jackpot, you know what holiday gifts to look for. Although most of us aren’t touting a household full of 007 gadgets, who’s to say that one day that McLaren won’t be beaming in the garage? After all, you only live twice.
