Alright, the last thing you want to read about is how close the 25th is and how little time you have left to wrap up your holiday shopping. You don’t “wait till the last minute”; you “wait for the right gift.” We get it, and we totally sympathize (hey, we’ve still got names left on our list too). But if you’re hung up on what to get that special guy, don’t fret. Here are three foolproof gifts he’s sure to love. And the best part—they’re all under $100!

There are iPad covers, and then there are iPad covers that look straight out of a James Bond movie. The Nau Pad Stash is the latter. Die-cut from wool felt, it gives a distinguished panache to his favorite gadget. Self-standing for easy visibility, it also boasts three slim- line security pockets—two perfectly sized for credit and business cards, plus one passport-sized for the international gentleman. Even the color—Caviar Heather—sounds smooth.

Beer-bottle-resealerSo it might not be the most glamorous gift, but if you’re looking for that “wow” stocking stuffer, look no further. Everyone knows bottle openers are a dime a dozen. But an opener that can re-seal a frosty brew for future guzzling? That’s a stroke of genius. Made in Germany, the heavy duty Hermetus Bottle Opener features a crimping resealer to keep liquid leftovers fresh, not to mention spill-proof (even when turned upside down).
