It says you're a guy with a good eye and a sense of humor. Plus, who could resist playing a few rounds of the classic game? Not us, that's see more

A Gift a Day: A Power Bank for the Multitasker Who's Always at One Bar of Battery Life

Scads of people are going to get a new phone, tablet, or other impressively marketed mobile device as a holiday gift this year. What they likely won't get is a way to charge said device while they're on the go. So as an addendum to the gadgets and gizmos we're giving this year, we're also including one of Radio Shack's impressive portable power packs. Our favorite is a slim all-black variant that will give an iPhone about 13 hours of talking time once it's dead, and even turns off automatically once whatever it charging is back to full capacity.

Besides a good trimmer—or regular trips to the barber—you should invest in a nourishing beard oil to soften the hair, add shine, and hydrate the skin beneath to avoid itchiness and flakes. In a flooded market, the oft-bearded Tom Ford now has his own collection of oils in three signature scents (piney Neroli Portofino, sweet Tobacco Vanille, and musky Oud Wood), further proof that facial hair has gone from hipster to high-end. $50; tomford.com see more

Embrace Your Inner Slob and Still Look Respectable

Yesterday, the Internet imploded when it saw that Duchess Kate Middleton of Cambridge wore a—wait for it—hoodie outside her grand palatial estate. How gauche, no? You, however, are not royalty, which means you can wear a hoodie—sweats, even!—but that doesn't mean you're allowed to look like some damn slob. Luckily for you (and the princess, if she plans on continuing her laid-back fashion streak), California-based brand John Elliott + Co has released a limited-edition capsule called the Loopwheel Collection, a six-piece assemblage of the brand's signature styles made from an exclusive type of Japanese loopwheel fleece.
