This one is easy.
Two things. First A brand new car under warranty so if anything breaks it is covered. Second, a house near the Virginia coast. Snow and cold is only wonderful for Christmas, those extra three months is how it gets tedious.

I think there are two categories of answers to this question -- The first is, how would you let your billlionaire friend set you up for life. The second is, what expensive, yet still gift-like item would you ask for? Like everyone else, my response to the first category is that I'd love a house and a trust fund.
As for expensive gifty thing, I'd love a really good table saw, or one of those 16" planers that Norm Abram uses on the New Yankee workshop.

Hm... I'd wish for enough money to let my parents retire and set them up for the rest of their lives; to create a college fund for my nephew and pay for my sister & brother-in-law's house; to pay for plane tickets for me to move to the States and live anywhere that my beloved and I wanted to there. (A house in the North, somewhere, and one in Georgia.) And, finally, for a better computer system for both myself and my beloved geekboy.
Dreaming for a moment, if we could assume money would buy happiness, I'd want some of that, too.
They probably sound like dumb answers, but those are the only things I want for at the moment. =]
