What to get the high level film exec for Christmas?

I have a very close friend from college who is a highly placed film executive so he is not hurting for money. However, he is still stuck in a smallish apt in NYC. I am tired of getting him things themed to items he is a fan of (e.g. Godzilla crap). He travels a lot and is ALWAYS busy. However, I don't get to see him that much, let alone keep track of what he owns or does not own.

So any thoughts on something unique ($20-$50 range) for the busy executive who has a geeky side to him and is about 30?

A years worth of membership in the just-announced Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited program?

That way, if he travels and has a laptop/internet at hand, he'll always be three clicks away from some good ole fashioned comic geekery!

A decent script? Never enough of those to go around.

You could get him started on a Bruckheimer-type obsession with an excellent fountain pen. Just don't let him try to keep up.

A sweet razor.

FIREFLY and SERENITY on DVD. Everyone I've given them to have loved them (and who knows, maybe he could get more made too).

Give him the film rights to your first best-seller-- and a bottle of nice wine.

Or any one of the random collection of gifts at the Oxfam online shop. Help needy people in the Third World and give your friend a laugh at the same time (and I bet he doesn't need more crap in his smallish apartment).
