My personal wishlist

Alright, I will be honest to admit that I am not your usual run of the mill lifestyle columnist. Heck, why I am writing this article, I am not fully sure. Maybe it's a certain desire to be surprised (and it's been a long time) or perhaps it's just the festive spirit that's letting me get carried away. Valentine's day is about a month away and I am not really expecting anything fancy. However, there is no tax on dreaming, is it?

"Keep on dreaming boy, cause when you stop dreamin' it's time to die." -Shannon Hoon

Well, I guess I am going to enjoy living a little more then, perhaps dreaming of one (or all) of these:

5) Porsche 911 Carrera GTS



Not really a distant dream since it was launched 2 years back, but still a dream machine is this slim gorgeous beauty! Chances are your boy would fall in love with it the first time he hears her voice, so if you are okay with him sharing a little of your time with someone else, this should be your ideal gift.

Knowing that a writer's earnings are not worth splurging it over this price tag (approx 77,000), it ranks 5th on my list.

4) Leaf Cay Private Island



There is nothing as inviting as a getaway to the crystal clear waters in Bahamas as is the fact that you can live a life in total seclusion for up to 5 years, with no need to come out of your hibernation. If you buy him this for Valentine's, you can probably get away with a card for the next four.

At just around 5m, this ranks 4th on my list.

3) The original Hugh's Robe



Need I say more? Throw in the pipe for some extra brownie points. Third.

2) A ticket to Space



The ultimate thrill, the final frontier, the uncharted space. Whatever you may call it, it's a gift that would literally take his breath away. With celebrities like Katy Perry already gifting it, it's not really an innovative idea, yet 2nd on my list.

1) A Transformers like robot suit



Something that could even beat the fantasy of space travel? If you could spare 1,646,610 Euros, you would be buying a life time of happiness for your man. Not only will you give him the ability to conquer the world with on board Lohas rocket launchers and Gattling guns, but also a heart-felt smile.

Exercise extreme caution when delivering this gift, as the Kuratas comes with a built in smile sensor that shoots bullets every time the pilot smiles.

So now that I have shared my wishlist, I would be eagerly checking my mailbox everyday. Surprise me!
