What’s go­ing to be un­der your Christ­mas tree this year? Here are some sub­tle hints to drop to your loved ones

Re­mem­ber the magic that Christ­mas morn­ing brought when you were a kid? Awake be­fore the sun rose, you’d sprint down the stairs to the Christ­mas tree and see what Santa had de­liv­ered, scream­ing at the top of your lungs for your mom and dad to “Wake up!” For me, Christ­mas was a month-long process of beg­ging, plead­ing, and vol­un­teer­ing to per­form any chore that needed to be done in or­der to con­vince my par­ents to get me that must-have gift of the day. In 1975, that gift was the Free­dom Train, a scale model of a train that trav­eled the coun­try for our Bi­cen­ten­nial that was full of his­toric things like Henry Aaron’s home run–hit­ting bat and ball and other stuff that my 10-year-old brain didn’t care about. To­day, as Mus­tang nuts, our gift lists are de­cid­edly more ex­pen­sive and tech­no­log­i­cal, but it doesn’t di­min­ish the joy that comes with open­ing a gift-wrapped pack­age, cross­ing your fin­gers, and hop­ing that in­side the box is that new su­per­charger you’ve been ask­ing for (or what­ever au­to­mo­tive lust you’ve hoped for). We put to­gether this hol­i­day gift guide in ad­vance of Christ­mas so you can mark a few items and leave it in plain sight for your loved ones. You know, as a hint. Here’s wish­ing that it works!
