You Like, You Buy Vol 36

While Tom Cruise was out terrorising Chinese villagers over the weekend, what was I doing? Nothing much really, apart from making a list of Xmas gifts. When it comes to most people, you really need to spell out clearly for them what you want to see in your Xmas stocking. Otherwise you will end up with a used earwax cleaning apparatus or even worse, can upon can of abalone-flavoured macadamian nuts.

When buying gifts for others, I always try to go for something that is brightly coloured, mildly useful and belies its inexpensiveness. This year I will be looking at interest at the creations of Hong Kong design house Zanif (, a local version of Alessi householdware.

In particular there is the UV detector card which can be used to measure UV intensity and test the effectiveness of sunglasses. If you get one from me this year, it means that I want to spare you a lifetime of Botox injections and laser peels.

There are also many other products available, mostly made out of silicone rubber. For maximum pleasure, presumably.
