Shopping for the holidays can be daunting in and of itself, but what is one to do when faced with finding the perfect gift for that road warrior who has diamond status with every airline and hotel?

To help you solve this problem, we present the 2012 Frequent Business Traveler Holiday Gift Guide: Diamond Edition.

Porsche Cayenne GTS

Nothing says holidays like a white Porsche Cayenne GTS with bright red seatbelts inside, and a bow on the hood to match.  The GTS re-joins the Cayenne lineup for 2013 and offers a potent combination of design, power,  and equipment, and it is prêt–à–porter at a Porsche dealership near you.  The GTS shares its front fascia with the Cayenne Turbo, in addition to its LED-surround headlights, body treatments such as aggressive wheel-arch extensions and side skirts, and red brake calipers.

The Cayenne GTS is no Turbo lite, however. The rear spoiler design is different, as are the exhaust tips, but the biggest difference is the price. At $83,025, it’s $26,700 less than its fear-inducing sibling. It’s still quite fast and comes with paddle shifters that allow running up through the eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission to achieve 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 5.3 seconds, all while comfortably seated with four other passengers and with abundant space for gear in the back. Combine your purchase of the GTS with European Delivery and pick it up at Porsche’s delivery center in Leipzig, Germany, for the holiday gift of a lifetime.  – Jonathan Spira


Jura ENA Micro9 Automatic Cappuccino Center

Seasoned travelers know a good cup of coffee when they see it, and far too often they are left unsatisfied with weak, watery, filter coffee,. The time wasted in preparing an espresso or waiting in line at Starbucks just doesn’t cut it. For the solution to this conundrum, simply turn to the Swiss.

Automatic coffee brewers are the centerpiece to homes and offices across Europe, and with good reason. With the Jura ENA Micro9, all it takes is the touch of a button, and in the comfort of your own kitchen, office, or other location of choice, coffee beans will be ground, packed, espresso brewed and milk steamed to perfection. Choose from coffee, espresso, latte macchiato, and cappuccino. Tipping not required.  – Dan Collins
