If any guy you know walked out of “Skyfall” claiming that he doesn’t want to be James Bond, he’s lying. It’s simply a fact that all warm-blooded men dream of living the luxury, ultra-suave lifestyle of 007, so what better Christmas gift can you think of than giving him that dream?
This is your guide to turning any man into James Bond this holiday season!
There is simply no way around it. Without the tux, you’ll never be able to master the Bond charm. Pick up this jacket with a shawl collar similar to Daniel Craig’s in “Skyfall” and start looking for a good tailor. (J. Crew, $790)
We wouldn’t suggest you go out and get yourself a real Walther PPK, but this airsoft version looks enough like the genuine article to let the terrorists infiltrating your holiday party that you mean business. (Amazon, $99.75)
Sometimes all a field agent needs is a gun and a radio, so make sure yours is tucked away out of sight, but for goodness’ sake, don’t touch your ear. (Amazon, $13.08)
How could you possibly shake your martini without the proper utensil? Grab this cocktail shaker and study up on your mixology before the holiday party season begins. (Williams-Sonoma, $24.95)
If you find yourself called in front of a committee to answer for your potentially treasonous actions, be prepared to recite a line or two from Alfred Tennyson. Hey, I worked for M. (Amazon, $10.17)
All of these gifts will help you on your way to becoming a gentleman spy, but to reach Bond levels of suaveness, you’ll need a solid soundtrack to back you up. (Amazon, $22.53)
If all of this doesn’t get you onto Her Majesty’s secret service, leave the espionage to the professionals and watch the master work his magic. (Amazon, $154.49)
