If you’ve read my lengthy review of the Ernest Alexander Watson briefcase, this should come as no surprise to you: I like it a lot. I’ve used it since August, and it’s without doubt one of my best purchases this year. It’s beautifully made out of high quality materials, and in addition to looking fantastic, it does a good job of keeping my stuff safe and easily accessible.

The Watson is the single most expensive object on this list, but it’s not an unreasonable price tag considering the quality of the product. As I wrote in the end of my review: If you can afford it, it’s a great purchase.
