Ridiculous Luxury Products
It’s that time of year again. The festive season is upon us and the pressure to buy our loved ones the perfect gift is only increasing. Firstly, you’ve got to decide who you’re buying stuff for. Obviously, you’ve got to buy for your immediate family, then your grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, that family friend you’d forgotten about. Then, out of your friends, you have to decide who’s lucky enough to make the cut. I always face the problem of buying something for one person and then feeling guilty if I don’t buy that other semi-relevant person a gift. Work colleagues are probably expecting presents too, not to mention teachers, neighbours and the postman. Anyway, you see my point: Christmas is a very complicated time and its hard to know when to draw the line. This doesn’t even take into account your budget, and before you know it, it’s Christmas eve, you’re bankrupt and you’ve forgotten that one very crucial gift and panic kicks in. Christmas is ruined and it’s over before you know it. Well, I’m afraid I don’t have any brilliant ideas about how to avoid all this – it seems inevitable. However, I can provide a fun list of completely ridiculous, extravagant gifts that only the very rich (or very stupid) can afford.
Firstly, there are the everyday essential items:
PRADA PAPER CLIP
We all have those days when you’re at work/school and you’ve got loads of different papers that need to be sorted and organised and it’s essential that some papers are kept together but you’ve run out of staples. The next best thing to reach for is a paper clip. But, not just any old paper clip, surprise a loved one with a $185 Prada paper clip that will function just as well as any other. Except, you’ll feel like a boss when you next go in to work waiting for people to comment on your high end, quality clip to match all your hard work. Just be sure not to lose it before you get there, as it is small, and only a paper clip.
TIFFANY BALL OF YARN
Who doesn’t love receiving a Tiffany box at Christmas? It’s every girls dream. But, if you’re looking for something extra special and very unexpected, why not get your hands on a ball of yarn. A silver ball of yearn. Think of all the things you could do with that! For example, use it for decoration, let your cats play with it, wrap it around the Christmas tree, the list is seriously endless! And, it’ll only set you back $9000!!
For families, you might like the idea of these steals:
GOLD AND SILVER MONOPOLY SET
Arguably the best game to have graced the Earth, Monopoly is a must-have at Christmas. It brings families together and teaches kids the value of ripping people off and secretly stealing from the bank. But, if the standard version isn’t enough, and neither are all the other random versions, then why not try the version made out of gold, silver and leather. Same game, same rules but with a shiny board. Can’t think of anything better, and at only $14,000!
DOLCE AND GABBANA PASTA
If you’ve got fussy kids that only have a taste for luxury then try some pasta made by Dolce and Gabbana. It probably tastes the same as normal pasta but psychologically it’ll taste much better because of the designer label that’s on the box. But, don’t quote me on that as I haven’t been able to try it for myself, unfortunately I don’t have $110 to spend on a meal that I’ll probably mess up.
But, if none of these ideas take your fancy and you’re looking to really treat someone this year then why not buy this:
Don’t you just hate it when you live the life of luxury and you just need to get away from the stress of buying your way through life. A holiday just isn’t enough. What you need is an island to yourself. Relax, unwind, maybe take a loved one too. You can do all the things you can do on land, but surrounded by water. For example, go for a stroll, east some food, sleep. It’s bliss. You can get a private island for as little as $6 million. In fact, why stop there? Why not just buy a whole country - you’ll probably get more for your money.
