According to a recent survey, up to 57 per cent of us will go overboard on the spending this Christmas – racking up an average overspend of £152.70 on gifts for loved ones. But as ridiculous as it sounds, there are actually a lot of individual presents out there which exceed that cost alone.
Whether you are one for treating your loved ones to the most luxurious, lavish gifts money can buy at Christmas, or you love to keep it simple but have a peek at what thousands of pounds could get you, there are an awful lot of extravagant presents out there during the festive period.
Luxury Christmas Presents
Hampers are the ultimate Christmas gifts. Packed with food and drink that they will love, the recipient will always be thankful.
This one is a real show-stopper. There is Champagne, fine wines and caviar as well as the usual favourites such as tea, coffee, fresh cheese and cured meats (although they’ll probably be a bit more fancier than your everyday picks). If the recipient has ever visited Harrods’ Food Hall, they have probably spotted a few of these best-sellers while browsing.
Christmas is an ideal time for a little tipple, and whether they need an excuse to crack open champagne or not, this bottle will surely tickle their taste buds.
The fruity notes in this Nebuchadnezzar-size bottle will no doubt make it a great accompaniment to their after-dinner mince pie in front of the telly on Christmas night. And for approximately 119 further glasses after that.
Extravagance isn’t just for food, wine and clothing. This Ultimate Collector Series Millennium Falcon model is a Limited Edition item, so if you have a Star Wars fan in your life, then there is no doubt it will be one of the best gifts they have ever received, and you’ll forever be in their good books.
Coffee lovers are picky about their favourite beverage. The first coffee of the day is an important one. They won’t be let down with this machine.
Sage care about their kitchen appliances, and this is a quality piece of kit. All the coffee is made on their behalf with just a few taps of the touchscreen.
If you know any keen photographers who you’d love to treat, this is the best camera you could buy them this Christmas.
The image quality, silent shutter, touchscreen and built-in WiFi make it a top performer, and it is definitely a step up from the 5D Mark III or 5D Mark II. It has a sturdy build too, so even though it is at the high end of the camera scale, it is all worth splashing the cash.
