Thirty Six Day's Until Christmas

Wondering what to get that "difficult" person in your life this holiday, I picked up a few ideas to help you with that special gift.

This cheery confection is like a delicious-looking go-kart. Coast down the road in style at a top speed of 7 m.p.h. in a Cupcake Car that comes in different-colored "flavors," as well as your choice of decorations like sprinkles and icing. And yes, it comes with a matching hat. Yours for just $25,000

New York City's Algonquin Hotel is an historic landmark with a long tradition of hosting the brightest minds in literature and the arts. For just a cool $200,000 you and a guest can rub elbows with the likes of Malcolm Gladwell, Nora Ephron and John Lithgow at an exclusive dinner party. Neiman Marcus will donate the proceeds to First Book, a charity that distributes reading material to children in need.

If you can fork out $7,500 you can take a VIP whiskey-making tour of Maker's Mark's classic distillery in Louisville to see how "perfection in amber" is made. Master Distiller Kevin Smith will guide you and a friend through the process step by step. End result: Two bottles of the stuff will be etched with your likeness and dipped in gold wax. Enjoy the amber goodness over a gourmet dinner hosted by Bill Samuels Jr., the top brass at Maker's Mark.

Or of course for something "really" special you can get a copy “Across the Pond” signed by yours truly "Storyheart" for a much reduced price of $15… Truly Priceless!

  1. I'm going with gifts a little less expensive. Maybe next year I can afford the ones you mention. (g)
