There's sadly no way to ensure that the wonderful accessories you buy today will be cherished by your offspring tomorrow. In your mind, a vintage Rolex Daytona may be a design classic and a forever watch, but should the day come when it's passed to the next generation, your son may just sell it and buy a sports car. And you might think a much-loved Montblanc Meisterstück fountain pen will act as a talisman if your children come to do university final exams, but they may look at it in much the same way that we'd look at a quill pen.
