What to get for the guy who loves tech, sports, art, pop culture, food and music.
Bargain: Indulge his artistic sensibilities with a DVD of the month club. The folks at Film Movement scour Independent Film Festivals for the latest and greatest in independent and foreign films. Every month he'll receive a new independent film (his to keep), many of which are so small they won't even make it to theaters. ($35.99 for three months, $67.99 for six months, filmmovement.com)
Mid-Range: With a name like Blackbird, Fly, how could this camera not be fantastic. Like the 1920s twin-lens camera after which it's modeled, the Blackbird offers the option of shooting from above, looking down at the lens, in addition to the conventional means. To add to the artistic options, there are three different masks that provide different formatting options. Add in cool design, fun, vibrant colors and endless photography possibilities and you've got yourself a no-fail gift, whether he's a pro with pictures or just getting started. ($119.99, popdeluxe.com)
Luxury: Art lovers love art for that quality which makes it a rarity, something ephemeral and yet everlasting. Get your art lover a piece of that feeling with one of only 525 existing facsimiles of Jackson Pollock sketchbooks, which date around 1937-1941 and contain some of the artist's earlier, experimental works, nudes, surreal works, and the only know self-portrait of Pollack himself. The set includes three chrome spiral bound notebooks and a booklet of essays and information, a gift he'll find priceless. ($750, metmuseum.org)
