6AM: Early morning run. Resolutions aren’t so hard to keep when the music (literally) plays to your own beat.

7AM: Choose a room-commanding power suit (just follow GQ’s tips for each body type) and remember to add accessories. Cuff links and accent socks go a long way.

8AM: Grab a cup of coffee and get to the office early to crush it.

9:30AM: Client meetings all morning. Although this is run-of-the-mill, don’t forget to brush up on your meeting skills to keep things running smoothly.

12PM: Conduct a meeting with senior management. Just don’t forget the fundamentals of business.

1PM: Lunch with the guys. Get away from the office for a quick bite, a walk, anything to help you clear your mind for an hour or so. Studies show that leaving your cube helps you think outside the box.

2PM: Take a client call and work on proposals and paperwork. This time also usually includes tweeting. That’s right – businessmen tweet, too.

6PM: Happy hour with coworkers and dinner on the town. Swap your office attire for a more casual button-down before heading out (yes, this requires planning ahead). Go for something with a fun, printed cuff to stand out from the sea of suits.

Ah, the stocking – proof that size certainly doesn’t count when it comes to gifting. I personally find the stocking portion to be my favorite part of Christmas morning (along with the coffee-cake portion, of course), and I have a hunch that your loved ones hold the same sentiment.

Using the Get Gifty: Our Holiday Gift Shop as a guide, here are six easy ways to surprise and delight your favorites come present time.

Clockwise, from top left:

Patterned silk tie. Between wedding invites and the workplace, he’ll be beyond grateful for this little silk number.

Diamond studs. It’s little surprises like these that keep the stocking game fun.

iPhone clutch. There’s no way a phone can be misplaced when it’s resting within a little sparkle and shine.

Wine bottle stopper. Mr. Wine Aficionado will be thrilled (and you can bet he’ll share his vino).

Tortoise sunglasses. This logo (hint: it’s a spade) is what Christmas dreams are made of.

Kids’ necklace & bracelet set. Introduce your little lady the art of mixing and matching.

Get Gifty: Our Holiday Gift Shop is now open.
