For parents who don't know, hard cash is always welcomed by the fast living 'yoof' whose expensive lifestyle is running up debts. But if you're dying to see his or her little eyes light up on Christmas morning, just like old times, music, books and all things hedonistic are always a good option. If in doubt, though, check with a reliable contem- porary.
