What Ridiculous Things You Can Buy When You’ve Got Millions in the Bank

Have you ever wondered what outrageous things the incredibly rich do with their spare time (and cash)? What a coincidence… Us too! Wouldn’t it be nice to, not only get on with your day to day life whilst also being able to fund the lavish lifestyle most of us can only dream of? Envisage being so unimaginably wealthy that you could get hold of a private jet with a moments notice. Or perhaps walk into the world’s finest restaurants, only to be treated like royalty, seated at the most requested table, treat yourself and your guests to a five course meal (including caviar, obviously), 10 bottles of champagne AND still have change to spare? Well, some people do have that luxury. Here, we delve into some of the most ridiculous things that you can purchase if you had more money than sense…


  1. Luxury Ice Cubes


When doing some research on this topic, we found some completely insane things that people can actually spend their money on. The first thing that struck our eye was… Wait for it… Luxury ice cubes. Yes, you heard us correctly. For a cool $335 you can buy a bag of ‘perfectly square’ ice cubes in California for “minimum dilution and maximum cooling”. No more watery gin and tonics for us!


  1. Cocktails


Have you ever been invited for a night out and been overly conscious about the price of the cocktails? Because let’s face it, a cocktail costing over £10 is just a little bit TOO much. Well, if you had the millions to do so, would you spend over ten thousand pounds on one? This is somewhere in the range of the price tag attached to a cocktail especially designed for Grace Jones at Gigi’s restaurant opening in London. Made with an extremely rare brandy and dollops of gold leaf, it is one of the most expensive cocktails in the world. Can we get one on the house?


  1. Puppy Bathtub


If you have a pet, you will probably know the feeling of true love. Many people regard their pets as family, and more often than not, we like to make sure our family has the best they can possibly get when it comes to their security and lifestyle. With that in mind, you can purchase for you pup, the bathtub created by Lori Garden with the teeny, tiny price tag of $39,000. Covered in 45,000 Swarovski diamonds, you can ensure your little prince or princess has the most luxurious of bath times every single day!


  1. Body Armour


Speaking of luxury and security for your darling pets, while your at it, why not treat your guinea pig to its very our body suit of armour. Yes, that’s right. Keep your pet guinea pig out of all kinds of trouble with this luxury piece of kit being auctioned for a solid $24,300.


  1. Hair Cut


Right, enough treating your pets, you need to think about yourself. Why not indulge yourself in a luxury trim. That can’t be too expensive, right? Wrong. The Sultan of Brunei once spent £15,000 on a haircut. He paid a London barber this and in addition made sure his barber was comfortable with his own cabin to perform the haircut. We know London prices are a bit wild but this just takes the mick.


  1. Dinner


Everyone deserves a meal out every so often. We may not want to cook; we may not want to clean, so we reside ourselves to a beer and burger out once in a while (we may even have dessert!). However, if you want that touch of je ne sais quoi, you may want to take yourself along to Sublimotion in Ibiza for a total cost per head at £1,250. It is a part of the Hard Rock hotel and only seats 12 people at a time for extra dining exclusivity. A place particularly popular with celebrities and wealthy holidaymakers alike. Where do we sign up?


  1. Gold Monopoly


Sometimes, though, you don’t want to go out. You simply want to stay at home and have a chilled night in with the loved ones, and what better way to spend a relaxing night in than cracking out some of the old board games hiding away in the back of the wardrobe? Well, of course we know you by now, and we know that you deserve only the best. What better way to feel like a millionaire building a house in Marylebone than using an 18-carat gold monopoly set to send your opponents to jail? For two million dollars, it can be all yours.


  1. Tequila, Tequila!


We think we need a drink to get rid of some of this angst with all the new expenses in our life! You can refresh yourself with a tasty bottle of Tequila Ley 925. It will only set you back $3.5m. Mmmm…


  1. Einstein


Okay, maybe we need to stop being so materialistic. Broaden our minds and our horizons. A hand written letter, written by Albert Einstein with his views on ethics and religion was sold at $3m at auction in 2012.


  1. Massage


I think its time we wound down from all of this madness with a massage. Why not head down to your local spa and ask for the Diamond Massage. This consists of crushing precious gemstones (1.5 carat diamonds to be precise) all over the body for special anti-aging, detoxifying effect to your skin. This ultimate pampering experience can be all yours for £100,000. How relaxing.


So there you have it, this is what your life could look like if you were loaded with bags of cash! Although it looks luxurious, we’re not so convinced of the lifestyle. I think we’ll stick to burger, chips and Netflix nights in! However, if you are lucky enough to have this kind of cash but no longer have any use for it, then we would love to help you shift it.
