Give Him A Porsche For Christmas. Well... Everything But The Car.
Okay, so he'd really like a Porsche for Christmas, but it's just not within your budget. So why not something from the Porsche Design Studio instead? With highly styled products ranging from usb keys, pen knives, home and kitchen accessories to luxury watches and cuff links, there are a lot to choose from. The large selection of design products includes several fun children's toys and a four nicely designed 2009 calendars.
Here are some of my favorites:

To fit in with the Christmas celebrations, Porsche Design has added a golden accent to several of their men's accessories this holiday season. The designs add the precious metal in yellow and rose to some select sunglasses and watches.
The P’8440 sunglasses in Light Gold Matt were designed with a definite nod to the “Exclusive Sunglasses” from 1978 – a true Porsche Design classic. The design of the lens attachments and bridge is a direct quote from the original.
For the first time, two models from the Porsche Design Dashboard series feature a rose gold case with a rubber and titanium layered bezel.The rose gold numbers and indices are featured in all three variants of dial and are partly displayed with superluminova.
This also applies to the hands, which for the first time are pointed to make it possible to tell the time more precisely.The rose gold and sapphire glass black reveals the Porsche Design rotor system and the ETA 2894-2 automatic mechanism.
