DSC_0650 2It’s that time of year, namely the time to find the perfect gift for the diamond guest in your life.  To help you find just the right gift, we present the 2013 Frequent Business Traveler Holiday Gift Guide: Diamond Edition.

We’ve selected gifts that will improve sound and music at home and on the go, keep your house clean while you are away, shed light on a subject, and get 45 mpg while driving on the Autobahn.

Nothing is more evocative of the holiday season than a red BMW 328d diesel-powered sedan under the tree.  The M-Sport package (pictured) gives it an aggressive look and feel, along with sport seats and a three-spoke leather steering wheel.

The 2.0-liter diesel engine develops 280 pound-feet of torque, and no other car that gets 45 mpg (5.2 l/100 km) is as much fun to drive.

If you’re planning on heading to the slopes, make sure to get the four-wheel drive version.

$38,600 at your nearest BMW dealer, or $35,950 if you take delivery in Munich with BMW’s European Delivery program.

One of the most appreciated gifts you can give someone is the gift of time.  We’re not suggesting a watch, however; rather  a robotic vacuum, the iRobot Roomba 650.

This is the second Roomba we’ve tested and once again, we named her Hazel.  Setup isn’t really required, simply unpack, charge, and let her loose.  The 650, excuse me Hazel, can clean a 16×20 room in just 45 minutes.  It will find dirt in places you didn’t know existed, assisted by Dirt-Detect, an ultrasonic sensor that spots dirt and tells Hazel to circle around the area before moving on.
