For the wine connoisseur, there's the VIP Edition of Metrokane's Rabbit ($125), a corkscrew that surpasses all other corkscrews. It can pull corks out in one clean, sexy sweep.

The Alessi Kaj watch ($85) makes simplicity look sophisticated and is the ideal gift for the mod you're mad about. It comes in pink, brown, black, and silver-gray to accommodate your color preference.
