What do you get the person who has everything for Christmas…
Or so the hilarious joke goes. But what if your friends and family don’t want something that first found life in a petri dish as a gift? Well if you’re super rich (and by that we mean a billionaire) and aiming to please, these ludicrously expensive gifts could be right up your street:
1. Chopard De Rigo Vision Sunglasses – $408,000
Your eyes are pretty important, right? So why not shade them with the priciest sunglasses on earth? Personally, I think they’re a bit garish but then my last pair of sunglasses were from Primani…
2. Project Utopia – $100 million +
Nothing says ‘I love you’ like an 11-storey-floating island. Equipped for the seas, it has several helipads and a top deck with a 360-degree viewing platform. Fancy.
3. Amour, Amour Dog Collar – 3.2 million
You know when your dog gives you those eyes, like, “hey, why don’t you ever buy me a diamond encrusted collar, you fool?” Featuring 1,600 diamonds and described by Forbes as“the Bugatti of dog collars”, if you get this for your pooch this Christmas, you’re guaranteed to never get that look again.
4. Virgin Oceanic – $10 million
Day trips into the deepest depths of the sea with good old Richard Branson for company? Beats a pair of black socks, any day.
5. Victoria’s Secrets Fantasy Bra 2015 – $2 million
Marilyn Monroe said “diamonds are a girls best friend”, and if Marilyn said it, it must be right, right? So what’s better for your gf or BFF for that matter than a spangly, diamond filled bra. Spicy.
6. Abramovich’s Gigayacht Eclipse – $2 million per week
If you want to stay above the water with your super-expensive gift giving, why not pay for your loved ones to stay on Roman Abramovich’s luxury yacht for a week. He bought the thing for a whopping $485 million, making a mere 2 mill seem like a steal.
7. Zafirro Razor – $100,000
If you’ve ever wanted to feel like you’ve had a shave worth a $100,000, the Zaffiro Razor might be the way to go. Promising the closest shave (it better be for that price), the razor uses artificial sapphire in place of a stainless steel blade.
8. Gold Shoelaces by Mr. Kennedy – $19,000
Gold – perfect for jewellery, teeth and now shoe laces. Yes, you can now make your shoes feel special with Mr. Kennedy’s proper bling laces.
9. Louis Vuitton Skateboards – $8,250
One for the fancy,but dare-devilish, kiddiwinks out there… Designer Louis Vuitton has gone all ‘street’ and designed it’s own skateboard, inspired by 80s graffiti artist and fashion designer Stephen Sprouse. We’re not sure how this would go down at the skate park…
10. Tresor Paris Diamond Crackers – 995,000
Why leave the glitz under the tree, when you can bring it to the Christmas dinner table? Tresor Paris have just released the world’s first ever diamond crackers, each containing their very own rock. I hope they still have a rubbish joke and party hat in them as well.
Are you hoping Father Christmas brings you any of the above?
