There are some things in life that money can’t buy, but then again, there are a lot of things that it can. So, what do you get for the person that has everything? These 21 ridiculously expensive things would definitely fit the bill. A very, very high bill.
1. For the speed demon:
A Bugatti Veyron will set you back for a cool $2.5 million, but then again it can catapult you from 0 to 60 in less than three seconds.
2. For the house hunter:
This 13,500 sq. ft. victorian style mansion just came off the market for a cool $120 million. The Copper Beach Farm just became the most expensive US home sale ever.
3. For the dog lover:
Recently, a Tibetan Mastiff puppy was sold for a whopping $2 million dollars to a Chinese businessman. Who knew you could put a serious price on puppy love?
4. For the music aficionado:
Stradivarius violins are world renowned for their craftsmanship and regularly carry a huge price tag, but this little “Lady Blunt” went for a cool $15.9 million.
5. For the yachtsman:
This little ditty, or should I say, dingy, is known as the Azzam Yacht. It’s the longest (and most expensive) yacht in the world at 590 ft. long. Owned by the President of the UAE, this little ship sailed in at $627 million.
6. For the sweet-tooth:
Trust the Cake Boss to be behind this $30 million cake. Covered in emeralds, rubies, sapphires, and, of course, diamonds, New York socialite Devorah Rose must have had quite the party. Who said you can’t have your cake and wear it too?
7. For the bride-to-be:
Now most wedding dresses don’t come cheap, but this number brings new definition to “something new.” Designed by Renee Strauss and Martin Katz, this dress is covered in more than 150 carats worth of diamonds and will cost some sap $12 million. Does the dress count as the engagement ring too?
8. For the fancy fiancée:
As far as engagement rings go, it’s virtually impossible to top Elizabeth Taylor’s ring from Richard Burton. Hopefully your marriage will last longer than theirs, because that 33.19-carat Asscher-cut diamond sold at auction for a steep $8.8 mil.
9. For the jitterbug:
The most expensive cup of joe can’t be found at just your run-of-the-mill Starbucks. Basically, Asian Palm civets (the cuties in the above photo) eat coffee berries. To make the coffee, you use the digested beans from the eaten berries (gross) to make the world’s most expensive coffee. $100 seems like a lot to spend on just a cup of pre-digested java.
10. For the luxe lush:
What can you possibly get the wealthy tequila lover in your life? Why, a $1.5 million diamond encrusted platinum bottle of Tequila, of course!
11. For the world traveller:
Everyone has penthouse dreams, but just how many can afford a penthouse price tag? To stay for merely a night in the Royal Penthouse Suite in the Hotel President Wilson in Geneva, you’ll need to be prepared to put down $83,200. Hopefully the turndown service is free.
12. For the fashion maven:
Designer Mouawad created this beautiful bag called “The 1001 Nights Diamond Purse,” which is made of, you guessed it, diamonds. 4,517 diamonds to be precise. This clutch can be yours for a cool $3.58 million.
13. For the cheese head:
Now, a lot of people consider themselves to be cheese snobs. I doubt these people have ever tried donkey cheese, which is readily available if you’re willing to shell out $700 for a mere pound of it. It’s literally ass cheese. I don’t know how I feel about that.
14. For the book worm:
This $30.8 million dollar book was bought by the one man that literally does have everything: the one and only Bill Gates. In 1994, Bill looked up from his computer and decided to go back to the root of information by purchasing the original and only copy of Leonardo da Vinci’s Codex. He regularly lends it to museums and libraries and is working on making an online copy available. How refreshing, a billionaire with a heart as big as his pockets.
15. For the air head:
The layout of this Airbus A380 reflects the customization to fit Prince Al-Waleed bi Talal’s specifications. To fly in this kind of style, you’ll need to have an extra $500 million in the bank, not including the sky high prices of fuel.
16. For the time machine:
Everyone knows that men love a good watch. If you need a gift for the man that has every Rolex in the world, it might be time to order this $2.497 million timepiece. Known as “The Grand Complication” and designed by A Lange & Söhne’s, this watch is truly a small, ticking work of art.
17. For the high class bartender:
This classy cocktail, known as “Salvatore’s Legacy,” was created in the Playboy Club in London. It’s created with very pricey ingredients like 1778 Clos de Griffier Vieux Cognac, 1770 Kümmel Liqueur, 1860 Dubb Orange Curaçao, and Angostura bitters and will run your bar tab up an additional $8136.
18. For the TV junkie:
Now this TV proves that size doesn’t always matter. Priced at $2.26 million, this 55″ HD TV is coated in 18k rose gold and has 72 round cut, 1-carat diamonds. It’s hard to imagine being able to focus on what’s happening on screen when there’s glitter all around it.
19. For the lingerie lover:
One of Victoria’s Fantasy Bras hit the most expensive lingerie mark back in 2001. The “Heavenly Star Bra” was comprised of 1200 pink sapphires and featured a 90-carat emerald cut diamond as a centerpiece. 12.5 million is a lot of money to spend on something that quickly ends up on the floor.
20. For the burger boss:
Ever wanted to try a burger worth more than the down payment on your car? Well now you can! At Fleur in Las Vegas (where else?) you can dig in to a $5000 burger composed of Wagyu beef, foie gras, and black truffles. To wash it down, you receive a free bottle of vintage 1995 Chateau Petrus, which is just the liquid courage you’ll need to face the steep bill.
21. For the chatterbox:
This is the perfect $8 million gift for the teenager daughter in your life that only acknowledges your existence when she complains about you on Twitter. This rose gold and diamond iPhone is as shiny as a new Apple and features a 8-carat pink diamond home button. Don’t worry, if that wears out the phone also comes with a replacement diamond. Hopefully she’ll accept your calls now.
