Lamborghini baubles?

Lamborghini baubles?

We received some news today from Lamborghini which is evidently proud of the ceramic baubles it (probably gets made in China and) sells on its website in the UK along with long-life candles and other tack. I’m reminded that by now I usually have my Xmas shopping done because I loathe Xmas music. In general, we buy too much rubbishy useless landfill-material for people who don’t need it, and I can’t think of anyone who needs Lamborghini baubles. When people ask me whether there’s anything special I want for Xmas I’m stumped for items under somewhere around the price of an Alfa Romeo Brera. I don’t mean to sound ungrateful, but I, like many of my friends, have all the socks, crockery, ornaments and other miscellaneous bits and bobs necessary to have a moderately comfortable life. I even have a wind up torch.

So, that pretty much just leaves experiences to buy and receive. I like buying experiences for people – hot laps in racing cars, stage shows, and other things that can be consumed so that I can easily find something in a similar vein next year. It’s almost the lazy way of buying presents. And I like receiving experiences as gifts – it’s an easy win, and I don’t even have to dust them.

Of course, I’m not hinting here…but Santa, please don’t bring me Lamborghini baubles.
