It's actually a favorite of numerous U.S. Presidents.
No sport mingles triumph and tragedy with quite the discomfiting ease of boxing, and no documentary has better captured that duality than Ron Berger's 2005 film about the life and career of former welterweight great Emile Griffith. Although the movie is more than a decade old, its themes and subtexts feel more bracingly relevant then ever. A must for any fight fan.

A new camera would be a great gift for an aspiring filmmaker — or just a student who’s excited to share their study-abroad experience with family and friends. “I love making videos, so having something smaller and easier to transport would be awesome,” says Howard Lin, a senior at University of Florida. “My dream would be the Sony Alpha A9, but it costs quite a bit so most likely not. I think a Sony Rx100 Mark V.”
Speaking of wedding registries, a set of matching flatware would be nice so that they can retire (or maybe even return) the dining hall forks and knives they may have stolen over the years.

A cookbook is always a good gift for a beginner cook, and Amanda Cohen, chef and owner of Manhattan’s Dirt Candy, relied on this one when she was in college. “Will you ever cook from it? Well, I did when I was in university, and the approachable recipes were a great way to ease me into the kitchen,” she said, adding, “And for me, it’s almost like a scrapbook, reminding me of when I tried to make Gypsy Soup, of hours spent poring over the recipes for Vegetable and Walnut Pate, Stuffed Eggplant, and Lentil burgers, trying to figure out how to tweak these dishes to make them better, learning from what they were doing, and slowly, page by page, without even knowing it, becoming a chef.”
