If you're the type who carries a Moleskine with you nearly everywhere you go, you're probably also the type who will dig these Custom Laser Engraved Moleskine Notebooks ($25 and up). Pick your notebook, upload your artwork (or choose from one of 10 artist designs), and you're done — unless you want custom spine engraving, as well. The hipster's favorite accessory just got a little cooler.
If you're as obsessive about your Myriad Pros and Helveticas as we are, check out the Pentragram 2008 Typography Calendar ($22-$36).

Built with top quality components and thoughtful construction, you can't go wrong with a made to measure gray or blue suit from Indochino's Premium Collection. All their suit jackets are half canvassed, with fully fused fronts, for greater versatility and excellent shape for your body. Each jacket also features fully canvassed lapels, bullhorn buttons, lightweight shoulder pads and high-quality collar felts. Just choose your fabric, customize your suit, and submit your measurements. The result is an investment-quality suit that's far more attainable than bespoke options and fits better than off-the-rack options. You can wear them year round, and you get the most bang for your buck as each suit is under $400.

For a totally NSFW new year, check out the Nerdcore 2008 Calendar ($25). While last year's calendar was gamer themed (mmm... PowerGlove), the 2008 version focuses on superheroes and villains. Only don't expect to see some buff dude with a dumb "S" on his chest — expect lots of sexy bare chests.
We'll readily admit that USPS stamps aren't the sexiest items we could write about. Then again, when they feature the classic designs of Charles & Ray Eames, there are few stamps that can compare. The USPS Charles & Ray Eames Postage Stamp Collection ($7 a sheet) is a set of 16 stamps featuring some of the Eames' most popular designs. Honored in the collection are the Eames Lounge Chair, Eames Molded Plywood Chair, and the Eames Hang-It-All. A sure-fire way to make snail-mail suck a little less.
