And now for a few obscenely useless luxury designer Christmas gift ideas: how about a Burberry plaid golf bag? Don't forget Fido's lust for quality leather goods: get him a Coach collar and leash. And for yourself, something basic, like a $350 cashmere letter sweater a la "Laverne and Shirley" from this fine establishment. Sigh. OTOH, it might be better to get an overpriced trifle than a baffling yet reasonably priced (I guess) yet totally useless appliance from Hammacher Schlemmer -- Exhibit A, this Pop-Up Hot Dog Cooker. WTF??
