30 Ridiculously Expensive Gifts We All Secretly Want

by Sacha Strebe

If there's one thing we love more than decorating, it's shopping. And it's definitely the season for our favorite hobby. Nothing compares to the thrill of the hunt, especially when we're tracking down gifts for Mom, Dad, brothers, sisters, and the entire extended family. But with so many people on our holiday gift list, price plays a part in what goes into the cart—and what doesn't. These 100 gifts under $200 are anything but budget.

If you're feeling generous, however, we found a few high-ticket luxury items that will make your favorite person grin like a Cheshire cat. Some of these have been living on our wish list all year in the hopes that Santa or someone special will place them under the tree come December 25. Here's hoping. Take a peek at some of the most opulent items with ridiculous price tags that we all secretly (or not so secretly) want this year. It's the luxury gift guide to end all others. We promise.

The Line Antique Mirror Cube Container Side Table in Stardust Blue ($1075)

The best way to say, "I can show you the world."

This chaise is a game changer. It's minimal and luxe with an iconic design that will stand the test of time.

Gucci Sylvie Mini Chain-Embellished Leather Shoulder Bag ($1980)

All I want for Christmas is you (and a Gucci bag).

Kelly Wearstler Pacific Surfboard ($9200)

Kelly Wearstler knows how to make high-ticket décor, so it was only a matter of time before she lent her design nous to other must-have pieces too. This surfboard is totally worth the near $10K price tag because it doubles as décor. Right?

Lex Pott Fragments Side Table Circle Insert ($13,500)

We never knew how much we needed a stone side table until we saw this magnificent piece. Bring Mother Nature indoors, literally.

Samsung Frame TV ($2000)

A TV that looks like a picture frame and seamlessly blends into your décor? Sign us up.

Lindsey Adelman for Roll and Hill Agnes Candelabra ($3750)

You may have heard of Lindsey Adelman's famed bubble chandelier (this DIY version is affordable), but now she's teamed up with Roll and Hill to make this lust-worthy candelabra. It seems expensive, but it's still much cheaper than her lighting. A girl can dream, right?

Julie Bonde Shiny Black Giant Spherical Lidded Container ($455)

Luxury is… a near-$500 giant black sphere. There's nothing in it, but it's mighty pretty. It's art!

Flos Mod.548 by Gino Sarfatti ($1490)

Part lighting, part sculptural work of art, this lamp steals the show in any room it enters.

HiFiMan HE1000 Open-Back Planar Magnetic Headphones ($2782)

These stylish headphones are music to our ears. They're so cool and have the most amazing speaker quality.

Erik Jorgensen EJ 880 Savannah Lounge Chair ($5049)

In the latest line of chairs to have stolen our hearts—never mind that it's over $5000—we need it!

Le Labo Santal 26 Concrete Candle ($450)

We are already major fans of the regular-size Le Labo candles, but this mega version in handcrafted concrete is something we need. 

Carl Aubock Large Hook ($295)

The beauty of the holidays is to give (and receive) gifts that you would never buy for yourself. Like a set of solid brass wall hooks.

Byredo Hand Cream Squeezer ($330)

This is both functional and fashionable—two words we want used to describe every object we own. We didn't know we needed one of these until now. It squeezes every last bit of your expensive creams out and looks gorgeous when not in use. 

Olivia von Halle Moscow Striped Silk-Blend Sweatshirt and Track Pants Set ($1245)

We're not arguing that there is no better way to spend our hard-earned money than on a silk-blend sweatshirt and track pants set, but is there a better way to accept the fact that we're not flying first-class?

Smeg Espresso Machine ($450)

This could very well cure any $6 daily coffee shop addiction—so in reality, it's saving you money.

Joseph Dirand for Puiforcat Silver and Gold Plated Tape Dispenser ($4600)

Joseph Dirand is one of our favorite French interior designers, so when he put his name to office supplies, we knew they'd be good. This chic-to-death tape dispenser is definitely on our lust list.

David Hockney A Bigger Book ($2500)

David Hockney is a brilliant artist, and clearly, he knows how much we want one of everything he makes. Thankfully, he compiled them all into one giant book. Thank you, David.

Because all your jewels deserve a pretty special place to live.

Ditch the unhealthy takeout, and make pizza like the Italians with this restaurant-quality oven. It's small enough to sit on your kitchen counter too, and it looks so chic.

ASH Unlacquered Brass Curved Arc Stool ($1400)

We're not saying that this is the most practical seat in the house, but we're not arguing that we don't absolutely need it in our lives, either.

Fornasetti Scimmie Thyme ($525)

What says, I love to entertain better than a giant scented candle depicting monkeys popping champagne?

La Cornue CornuFe Stove ( $9500 ) ($1300)

Santa, baby! Anyone going through a kitchen renovation this year needs to get one of these under the tree.

Cristallino Crystal Foosball Table With Black Field by Teckell ($17557)

A foosball table that looks good when you're not playing with it. This one won't be relegated to the pool room.
