Can a brother spare $250,000? Please, so we can revel in the sounds of a Ferrari engine or book a vacation to outer space? We just want to bask in the expensive glory of all these luxury toys for the uber-rich. Santa, we've been oh so good! Won't you please allow us the guilty pleasure of one of these items from The 12 Tech Days of Christmas?
Visit Outer Space
Many of us spent our childhoods dreaming of becoming astronauts and visiting the stars. Either that or we thought our parents must be aliens for sure, strange as they were. For a deposit of merely $20,000 you can book your trip to space with Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic. Be among the first as we're on the brink of space tourism. Brings new meaning to the phrase, "reach for the stars!"
Hacker-Craft (30 Sport Shown)
It's hard to get a handle on how much these boats actually cost, but considering this year's Neiman Marcus-Edition goes for $250,000 and used boats easily hit 6 digits, we're guessing your budget of $250,000 might just get you maybe one of their middle of the lineup models. These mahogany pleasure crafts are truly magnificent works of boating art.
Ferrari 458 Spider
Go ahead and say it out loud. Ferrari. Roll your tongue on the 'rr' and say it again. Just the name brings chills down your automotive spine. The 458 Spider is the latest in a lineup of truly wondrous sports cars from the fine Italian automaker.
Bugatti Watch Winder
Sure you could find a watch winder for but a few dollars, but how pedestrian when we're talking big ticket wish list items. For 115,919 of those bucks you can use a Bugatti Veyron's engine block to wind 16 timepieces at a time, all controlled by a touch panel. Excessive? But of course, Santa, but of course!
Jetlev R200 Water Jetpack
Soar up to 30 feet above the water at speeds up to 25mph for 4 hours at a time with this waterbased jetpack from Jetlev. A 1,500cc engine with 200HP launches you into the air as you fly high up in the sky. Flying has become a reality!
