For the Man with Good Taste: The Alessi Juicy Salif

We love Philippe Starck for his confident, quirky personality. But his innovative (sometimes questionable) designs? All the more. This juicer he sketched for Alessi is revolutionary as much as it is functional. We can’t think of a more stylish juicer than this.

$129 (usual $215) till 19 December. Available at P5 (Previously Macsk Singapore), 63 Mohamed Sultan Road, 01-14. Tel. 6443 2282

For the Coffee Addict: Bialetti Moka Pot

From $60. Available at Tangs 

For the Man Who Likes His Whisky: Linley Trafalgar Straight Whisky Glass

For the Man Who Spoils His Wine: Coravin Model Two Elite

Now this is really cool. You can enjoy a bottle of wine without having to pop the cork open. Even better, you don’t have to rush to finish it within a day (if you’re not in a hurry, of course). What Coravin does is plunge a thin needle through the foil and cork, the bottle is pressurised with argon (so no oxygen touches the wine) and voila, there’s your glass. Available in red, gold and silver.

$530 Available at Enoteca Wine, The Oaks Cellars and The Vintage Club

For the Man Who Rather Decant: Asprey Stag Head Decanter

The question always remains for us whisky drinkers – to decant or not to decant? You could pour it straight for the bottle, but pouring into a decanter won’t mar the quality anyway. At least not with Asprey, which makes theirs with lead-free crystal, so you know your whisky should remain at its prime without unwanted metal leaching in.
