We asked business owners to describe their most cherished present–and one thing they’re hoping for this year.

Case of Handpicked Wine
Cost: $750

My wife and I received a case of wine from a group of friends after our wedding, in 2008. One friend, a sommelier, selected a bottle for each month of the coming year, including rich, hearty reds for winter and crisp whites for summer. Each bottle included a note with details on the wine and a personal message. Talk about a gift that keeps on giving.

Cabela’s Advanced Anglers Underwater Camera
Cost: $450

I love fishing in Costa Rica, the Florida Keys, or upstate New York, where I have a vacation house. This camera gives me an underwater view of where the fish are hiding. I’ve used it at least a dozen times since my daughters gave it to me last Christmas. It’s been a huge help.

Luxe City Guides
Cost: $9.99 each

My business partner, Hayley Barna, and I give each other “no reason” gifts. After our company expanded to Europe, she surprised me with a set of Luxe City Guides for London, Paris, and Barcelona. Each one fits in my purse and contains a wealth of information. They came in very handy during a recent solo trip to Europe.
