Who needs the stress of finding the perfect gift for the executive on your list? If money is no object, here are a few suggestions.
Cartier says this season watches are anything but flat. Released just in time for the holidays is the newest addition to its library of timepieces: the Ballon Bleu. This bubble-shaped watch features a sapphire-topped winding mechanism and a large dial face set in 18-karat gold. ($26,000 at Carl Greve)
To trick out your iPod even more, try the latest in tech accessorizing: laser etching. Prices depend on the complexity of the graphic and the size of the device. (deviceninesix.com, etchamac.com, adafruit.com/laser)
The Montegrappa Extra 1930 is the patron of pens. Each one is handmade in Italy from celluloid with sterling silver accents. Aaron Hubbell of Paradise Pen’s Portland store says the original 1930s Montegrappa was used by Ernest Hemingway, proving its distinguished look and craftsmanship stand the test of time – or at least longer than a bottle of tequila. ($690 for the roller ball, $1,100 for the fountain pen, at Paradise Pen)
A staple in the businesswoman’s jewelry collection is a pair of diamond stud earrings. The Hearts on Fire diamonds at Carl Greve are billed as the world’s most perfectly cut diamonds. For the clueless gift-giver, these platinum-set sparklers are a safe bet. ($9,000 for .5 carat in each ear, $25,000 for 1 carat in each ear, at Carl Greve)
Women may have their earrings, but men can get just as flashy with cufflinks. The Ploemiste square cufflinks by NIKOS, with 19-karat white gold and a blue carbon fiber pattern, add masculine flair to any suit. ($1,775 at Carl Greve)

On April 1 I attended a forum at the University of Portland on the sharing economy. The event featured panelists from Lyft and Airbnb, as well as Portland Mayor Charlie Hales. Asked about the impact of tech-driven sharing economy services. Hales said the new business models are reshaping the landscape. “But,” he added, “I don’t pretend to understand how a lot of this [technology] works.”
