I know, I know: It's so hard to find just the right holiday gift for some people.
So how about a trip to the moon?

The lunar excursion is being offered by start-up company Golden Spike, which says it's "the first company planning to offer routine exploration expeditions to the surface of the moon."
Yeah, not a whole lot of competition on this front quite yet.
Golden Spike plans to get a hold of existing space gear and repurpose it for commercial missions.
