Car lovers are easy to buy for, and this hardcover coffee table gem is one reason why; you can save tens of thousands of dollars by not buying a new Porsche as a gift this year and instead plunking down for this elevated history of the high performance German brand.

Solo Stove Pizza Oven
$575 (wood and gas model)
When you’re cooking up your holiday pizza, nothing says spirit like a wood-fired pie made in a small oven that cooks – as opposed to looks – like a card-carrying pizzeria stove. With Solo Stove’s Pi Pizza Oven, you can fire up with wood or move a little quicker with the propane accommodation, which readily adapts. The oven can make up to a 12-inch pizza and at 20 inches wide by 15 inches high, the stainless-steel Pi is sized for the golf course, the campground or the backyard.

Someone will need to know the temperature of the various meats that are required to be on the table this holiday season. The stainless steel MeatStick Mini is a wireless thermometer that works via Bluetooth from up to 100 feet away indoors and up to 260 feet outside. This means you can watch the game and enjoy a cigar, monitoring the MeatStick from your couch via an app without hovering over a hot grill. The MeatStick Mini is conveniently small, the ‘mini’ part, allowing the chef to monitor smaller cuts of meat.

Irish Setter Vaprtrek Waterproof Boots
You don’t need to be a hunter to dig these military-style boots. They look good as you slog through…wherever.

The full-grain leather camo helps you blend into the wilderness, and your quarry will never see you coming. The boots also include the Irish Setter’s ScentBan technology that it promises will kill bacteria that causes foot odor.
