It’s been ages since I have seen something in the newspaper that has lit up some corner in my heart.
This Christmas wasn’t particularly great in terms of living up to the “season-of-giving”. I think people may rather refer to it as the “season-of-give-you-a-gift-when-I-lost-my-job-&%$@”
Inspite of all this, some products managed to sell so much that they managed to go out of stock. People couldn’t gift enough of them apparently.
The Nintendo Wii, Ugg Boots and the Amazon Kindle are some of the big names. After the Xmas season, Kindle stocks have been reported as unavailable for the next 8-10 weeks. Wii is nearly impossible to find anywhere right now and has been in short supply from Nov 06. Wii Music and Wii Fit have also established their own and are equally tough to get one’s hands on.
I didn’t receive any gifts this season. I think it has something to do with the fact that I didn’t give anyone any.
However, if some kind-hearted sould reading this decided to give me a gift and assumed that this post was hinting in that direction (Wii, Ugg, Kindle), you’d be right about the hint, but wrong about the product.
What I would really like to see on me is the
The Ducati Model 271
Nope. That’s not a car, and that’s also not probably what you’re thinking right now.
It’s the creme-de-la-creme of gifts right now. A gift so popular that people all over the world are placing orders for it in advance. The company is so overwhelmed by demand that they are actually hiring people. Not a bad idea, since their sales have now gone up 4 times over the last year.
No other gift can give anyone as much bragging rights as this one can.
