List o’ 10 Overly Excessive Things For the Indulgent Shopping List


The average person would have to mortgage the next 20 years of earnings to buy most of these items, but take comfort in knowing that none of them are essential and you can waste your money for absolutely no good reason other than pure indulgence. But hey, isn’t that what wasted money is all about?

Bonus: Combo iPod Stereo Dock and Toilet Paper Holder: $90

Reading on the potty with an airwave radio is so old hat these days – its just so…analog! Remember the days when a good magazine was all teh companion you needed, or maybe the extravagant wall-mounted large sized crossword puzzle. Now you gotta have your tunes every step of the way, and just so you playlist is never too far from reach, this item is perfect for the music-obsessive person in your life. Otherwise, it falls into the useless category.

10. A Truffle: $240

Heres a chocolate truffle for $240. Yes, for one truffle. Thats $2,600 per pound. Thisd, the world’s most expensive chocolate is available on preorder only (there are no racks full for walk-ins!). It’s made of 70% Valrhona cacao, which is blended into a creamy ganache with truffle oil. The truffle is then hand-rolled with a dark truffle on the inside and dusted with cocoa powder.You really have to be a serious chocoholic for this baby.

9. Diesel DZ9044 Side View Watch: $365

It’s a watch and it has no face. At least not on the top. Sound interesting? Sure, it is an interesting design, and in terms of prices for a cool watch, it really is not out of line. But just watch the bills mount for your medical treatments as you turn and twist your wrist around every time you check the time. No doubt this little gizmo will end of costing thousands more by the time your carpal tunnel has kicked in full blast and those physiotherapy visits are paid for.

8. Pizza Royale 007: $2,800

Yes – it is a pizza. Like most, it is topped with tomato pizza sauce, cheese and some fancy ingredients such as smoked salmon, venison medallions, cognac-marinated lobster and champagne-soaked caviar. And how you ask does this add up to a $2,800 menu price? Well, naturally, it also has the unusual topping of 24-carat gold leaf. For those who like to actually eat the rich this is the worlds most expensive pizza and a totally useless way to spend your money.

7. Anita Bling-kini : $3,000

The Anita Bling-kini, made by Pistol Panties in the UK, sells for 2,000 (about $3,000) and is covered in more than 5,000 Swarovski crystals. Not bad for a day on the beach – wonder if you can swim in it?

6. DEOS Groups diamond earbuds: $15,000

Got the 3G King’s Button? Here is the must have matching accessory. Or – did someone give you these earbuds in your Christmas stocking? Well, ruch out now and get the matching 3G King’s Button iPhone before they are gone! However, these are not the actual earbuds, but only diamond-studded covers (which slip over the standard-issue white buds). The different styles contain up to five carats of black or white diamonds priced between $1,200 and $15,000 per pair.

5. Crocodile Umbrella: $50,000

It would be nice to just have an umbrella that kept you dry and didn’t turn inside out in the wind. Like the MasterCard commercial, that would be priceless. But since this cant be guaranteed, Billionaire Italian Couture designers in London made an umbrella completely of crocodile hide and slapped a price tag of $50,000 on it because, well…presumably because they can. Not sure about you, but much like high end sunglasses, I fully expect an umbrella to get lost or broken at some point, which pretty well mitigates the $50K price tag, unless of course you are a member of Billion Dollar club and do in fact shop there. The real question is, when you come in out of the rain, place the umbrella down to drip off, who is hanging who out to dry?

4. Mystery Masterpiece Pen: $730,000

Built and designed by the team of Montblanc and Van Cleef & Arpels, this is among the most expensive pens in the world, surpassed only by Montblanc’s Boheme Royal. The gold body is gem encrusted(rubies, sapphires, emeralds, diamonds), with the value coming in at uniqueness (only three of each design were made for a total of nine pens sold worldwide). Each pen has 840 diamonds and more than 20 carats of gemstones set in a Van Cleef & Arpels patented Mystery Setting, hence the name. No doubt this is a terrific piece, and holds value for owners, but I just bet that they also have a backup box of Bic Ballpoints in the office also.

3. Apple iPhone 3G Kings Button: $2.5 million

Tired of what everyone else has? This iPhone is made of solid 18 carat layered yellow, gold and rose gold. The white gold line is encrusted with 138 cut diamonds and the main face plate has a 6.6 carat diamond home button. At 1.79 million Euros (about US$2.5 million), this kind of gives a whole new meaning to phone home. This could have been better named the King’s Ransom.

2. Ginza Tanaka handbag: $1.63 million

This teeny-tiny bag designed by Ginza Tanaka is made with 2,182 diamonds (total of 208 carats) for the bargain price of just USD$1.63 million. To put this in perspective, even with the completely out-of-control world of ladies handbags, the next most expensive on the market is the Diamond Forever by Chanel, at a mere US$261,000. Of course, you have to be able to painlessly part with the Ginza price point pretty quickly, since as a respectful socialite, one evening only and then youre forced to toss it away. Imagine the shame of being caught wearing the same bag at the next shindig!

1. Chopard Diamond Watch: $25 million

The watch face is somewhere there in the middle, surrounded by 201 carats of lots of very sparkly rocks. The bracelet has three heart-shaped diamonds around the face – a 15-carat pink diamond, 12-carat blue diamond and an 11-carat white diamond – all of which open by a spring-loaded mechanism. More than 600 yellow diamonds are sprinkled alongside 91 or so colorless diamonds. Kind of hard to actually find the watch inside this cluster, but maybe if you can afford this indulgence, everyone else is waiting for you anyway.

    An antartian walks into a bar down south around Christmastime; and theres a little nativity scene on the bar. And the guy says, Thats a nice nativity scene. But how come the three wise men are wearing firemens hats? And the bartender says, Well, it says right there in the Bible. The three wise men came from a fire.
