Tis (almost) the Season. #AVGeek gifts.

We’re now into November which means the start of the festive season.  Well I was in the John Lewis store in Westfield in September and they had this on the escalators, but I digress.

Last year, I mentioned possibly the ultimate #avgeek Christmas present – a jacuzzi made from a jet engine intake, with the ultimate price to match.

Well Lufthansa’s WorldShop has some very cool presents.  They have taken a number of their onboard trolleys, refurbished them and are selling them as gifts in the WorldShop.

To start with there’s a smaller, half height one, but it comes with the same drawers and shelves that you get on a real one.  That weighs in at €359, or 94,000 Miles and More miles.

As an aside, it’s terrible value redeeming your miles at the WorldShop – you typically only get 0.5¢ worth of value, so unless you’ve got a few that you’re looking to burn, don’t!

They also have a number of full height trolleys including one that has a built in chiller, and another one that has a table football table built into the top!

They aren’t cheap, however.  Prices start at €999 for the “Retrolady” one, up to €1,999 for the “Retro” one.

Either way, they do look rather splendid.  Delivery is 4 to 6 days to most European countries (including the UK).
