Luxury gift ideas guide

Luxury gift ideas guide: Bugatti Veyron

Call them absurd, call them over-the-top, call them unobtainable. The items on this list are all of these things, but they also share another thread: They’re all awesome. The best tech gifts and gadgets under $200 might make a more practical read, but the gifts making up this list are all things you wish you could get, but probably won’t. It’s certainly fun to dream for “some day,” though, isn’t it?

Bugatti-VeyronBugatti Veyron, $2,000,000

The epitome of automotive excellence in both luxury and performance, the Bugatti Veyron (named after Pierre Veyron who won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1939) is probably more beast than machine, and stands as a true hallmark in automotive engineering. All of the numbers attached to the Veyron are simply staggering: a top speed of 266 mph, over 1,000 horsepower, and probably most astounding, a $2 million sticker price.

Zafirro-Iridium-RazorZafirro Iridium Razor, $100,000

Anything but your standard razor, the Zafirro Iridium razor is comprised of pure sapphire blades that are impervious to oxidation and corrosion. According to Zafirro, the blades remain incredibly sharp by using high-energy ionized particles, creating a blade edge that is 5,000 times thinner than human hair. The company even offers a 20-year warranty to make sure your razor stays on the cutting edge of performance – and for $100,000, we think they should.

Poseidon-Underwater-HotelOne week at Poseidon Undersea resort,$30,000

Trips always make great gifts, and no other trip will be as unique as spending a week vacationing under the ocean at the Poseidon Undersea Resort. The world’s first seafloor resort where you can spend the night 40 feet underwater offers guests a week-long experience where they can enjoy two nights underwater, and four nights on spectacular beachfront over-water bungalows. Rates start at $30,000 per couple, per week and include a wide array of luxurious amenities like learning to pilot a mini-sub, scuba diving, gourmet meals, and many others.

Virgin-GalacticVirgin Galactic Spaceflight, $200,000

For many, Earth, not space is the final frontier.The vast majority of us will likely never leave our little green rock we call home, travel to the moon, or other far off planets. However, there is hope for those would-be adventurers seeking an out-of-this world experience. Those lucky few with big dreams (and bigger pockets) have a chance to make their dream reality and hop aboard Virgin Galactic’s space flights. Tickets cost $200,000 and require a $20,000 deposit.

inuke-boom-xlBehringer iNuke Boom, $30,000

If you look close (and yes, you have to look close to see it), that is an iPhone docked atop the massive, and we do mean massive, Behringer iNuke Boom. Costing a whopping $30,000, pumping out 10,000 watts, and weighing over 700 pounds, we doubt Santa will be able to carry this on his sleigh, let alone get it through the chimney.

Confederate-X132-Hellcat-Confederate X132 Hellcat motorcycle, $49,000

If you’re looking to give a luxurious gift this holiday season with a bit of bite, you could a lot worse than the Confederate Motors X132 Hellcat. This dynamically crafted motorcycle is as powerful as it is stylish, featuring carbon fiber wheels, billet aluminum case, and a Copperhead fuel injected V-Twin pumping out 132 horsepower. The X132 starts at $45,000 and tops out at $49,500 with added features.

Thailand-VillaThailand Villa, $5,000,000

The spacious Kamala Headland Villa is located in Phuket, Thailand and measures over 1,597 square meters. It includes elegant water structures, a cinema room, and a number of swimming pools scattered throughout the property. It offers unprecedented luxury and sweeping vistas for those willing to pay the $5 million asking price.

dr.dre.goldCrystal Rocked gold-plated Beats by Dre $2,300

Sure, you could gift a pair of Beats by Dre Headphones, but they wouldn’t really stand out in the crowd. If you’re looking for something a little more special — then think about dropping some cash (£1489 to be precise), for these gold-plated DrDre Beats Studio Headphones from Crystal Rocked.

Streets-of-Monaco-YachtStreets of Monaco Yacht, $1,000,000,000

If money is truly of no concern and you really, really, love the person you’re gifting this seafaring behemoth to, then rejoice, for your search is over! Built to be the very epitome of luxury and exclusivity, The Streets of Monaco Yacht is the grandest gift, both in size and cost, that you could possibly give this holiday season.

It even features scaled-down versions of the famous Monte Carlo Casino, Hotel de Paris, Café de Paris, and a go-cart track inspired by the Monaco Grand Prix.

Phase-One-IQ-180Phase One IQ180 Digital Camera, $50,000

Looking for that perfect camera for the budding photographer? Forget about those 8-, 10-, or even 12-megapixel cameras, the $50,000 Phase One IQ180 Digital Camera boasts an astounding 80 megapixels for the ultimate in image quality. It features a 3.2-inch touch screen display with 1.15-megapixel resolution for browsing all those crystal clear images they’re bound to capture.

Traxxas-X0-1-ActionTraxxas X0-1 RC Car, $1,100

For a luxurious gift that both adult and kid speed demons can appreciate, check out the Traxxas X0-1 RC car. This speedy RC, priced at a reasonable (for this list anyways) $1,100, can rocket from zero to 60 mph in 2.3 seconds and zero to 100 mph in a blazing fast 4.92 seconds. It doesn’t go on sale until December 30, but if you take a picture and place it under the tree it should work just as nicely.
