The car commercials showing people giving each other new cars for Christmas really bug me. Why would you make such a big decision without consulting your spouse? It's really foolish. Especially if you are taking on a pile of debt to do it.
A better if more boring idea would be a nice mutual fund, though even a significant expenditure like that should be done with your spouse, in my view.
