The favorite gift many business executives would love to find wrapped up this holiday season with a bow on top is something high tech. It’s a great time to consider getting gadget lovers something to feed their gizmo passion. From an iPod to a leather-bound laptop, here are a few ideas for your favorite tech geek.

Lenovo ThinkPad Reserve Edition

$5,000, lenovo.com

For the ultimate in laptop luxury this holiday season, we think the limited edition ThinkPad encased in high-grade, handcrafted leather looks great. Only 5,000 lucky souls will get this notebook with 24-hour specially trained customer support, an Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 2GB of RAM. Did we mention it looks great?

Shure SE110 Sound Isolating Earphones

$99.99, shure.com

Shure knows how to do great noise-canceling earphones, and the entry-level SE110 model is no exception. You’ll be able to listen to your iPod as the world noisily goes by via a fit kit that creates a seal inside your ear, eliminating most sounds.

Apple iPod touch

$299 to $399,  apple.com

Apple recently unveiled its new iPods, and the best of them has to be the touchscreen iPod. This cool player is like the iPhone without its phone ability. We like the fact it looks gorgeous, lets you do wireless Internet surfing and can belt out up to 22 hours of music before it needs a recharge.

Sony HES-V1000

$3,499.99,  sonystyle.com

Who says you can’t serve media in style, especially when it’s streaming from the Sony HES-V1000 media server. There’s a built-in Blu-ray Disc player, which holds 200 discs and also plays DVDs, a 500GB hard drive for music storage, HDMI output and that good old Sony buzz.

Nikon CoolPix S51c

$329.95, nikonusa.com

Sharing digital photos is made easier when you find the
CoolPix S51c in your Christmas stocking. This compact camera offers wireless Internet so you can send your vacation shots to others — nice for when you are kicking it at Starbucks. We also like the three-inch LCD and the 8.1 megapixels of picture-taking power.

Bang & Olufsen Beo5

$560, bang-olufsen.com

The unique Beo5 from Bang & Olufsen is our new favorite remote. It’s customized to match your specific home theater needs, letting you control gear and systems such as air conditioning. Other great features include a touchscreen display with two types of touch-based controls, ergonomic design and a long battery life.
