Is anyone getting me a car this Christmas?

I keep seeing commercials where affluent, well-manicured people give each other cars with oversized bows on them? Is this really a thing? How do they even know what features the other likes? Are they dropping hints into casual conversation? “Boy, this leather couch sure would be great at 60 mph, right?”

If I surprise one of my friends or family members with a luxury sedan, will I hear a peel of joy or see a cringe of awkward regret? “Thanks for the car. Did you keep the receipt?”
