Perfect Gifts for Spring TWO-WHEEL PRECISION
Porsche has introduced two bicycle designs, both inspired by the fluid lines of its iconic 911 automobile. The Porsche Bike RS racer (above) is equipped with a carbon-fiber frame, Magura hydraulic disc brakes and a 20-speed Shimano gear system for road warriors who like to power their own way. $8,000;

Bang & Olufsen’s BeoPlay 8 (above, left) makes a striking statement whether it’s hung on the wall or placed in a room (sound can be optimized for both). It also makes your iPhone, iPad or iPad Mini playlist come alive, wirelessly or via a built-in dock. Speakers are available in a rainbow of colors to go with any décor. $1,149.

Skiers and snowboarders can record still and video images on the slopes hands-free with Liquid Image’s Apex HD+ Wi-Fi Snow Goggles, which contain an HD, Wi-Fi-enabled camera. The goggles’ rotating, 135-degree wide-angle lens captures all the action; images and videos with sound can be streamed live or downloaded. Available in black or white (above, left). $400;

The age-old game gets even more intriguing with Alexandra Llewellyn’s handmade backgammon set (left). The zebrano wood board contains inlay hand-painted with peacock feathers and comes with antique weighted playing pieces. Available through Bespoke Global; $3,400.

Henri Bendel’s Tough Girl Pearl Lariat (left) is a playful combination of Swarovski elements and glass pearls hung on a 16-inch, gold-plated brass chain. At Tysons Galleria; $178.
