24 Ridiculously Expensive Everyday Items

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to have a million dollars you probably only thought about the cars, the yachts and the bling, and overlooked the details like what kind of toilet seat or fancy tennis ball cans you’d use. We tracked down 24 of the most ridiculously expensive everyday items you could blow your wad on.


Concrete Aalto Doorstop – $3500

While the rest of us are using cinderblocks we found outside for doorstops, somewhere in some mansion there’s a chunk of cement holding a door open worth $3500. You may (but probably don’t) notice that this doorstop is shaped like an Alvar Aalto Savoy vase and that’s because it was cast in an original vase which was then shattered to let out the mold. While the Aalto doorstop looks pretty cool, it may just be a waste of a perfectly good vase (and $3500). mattermatters.com


Another Notion of Possibility Box Cutter – $95

What better men’s gift than a $95 box cutter?? Someone who’s spending $95 on a box cutter probably doesn’t do a lot of box cutting, so this solid nickel chrome plated box cutter is probably more of a display piece. Engraved with “Another notion of possibility,” this ordinary object intends to blur the lines between “art” and “stuff”. Perhaps the the answer lies in how you use it. citizen-citizen.com


Posh Instant Noodles – $43

Yep, even instant noodles come in luxury form. For $43 a cup, you can have one of 100 exclusive Pot Noodle cups. Each posh noodle comes in a hand-flocked gold leaf pot and because you like to be civilized while you eat your instant noodles, it also comes with a fork and table linen. One good thing about the exorbitant price tag: the proceeds go to charity so you can help the less fortunate while you indulge. Source


Renova Colored Toilet Paper – $20

If you’re tired of wiping your ass with dollar bills you can spend that cash on some colored toilet paper. While it’s probably just as much of a waste of money, at least Renova colored toilet paper is much softer than cash. A 3 pack sets you back $20 but if you’re obsessive enough to color coordinate EVERYTHING in your bathroom than you won’t mind the expense. satinbox.com


Glace Balls of Ice – $40

Ice cubes are for squares. VIPs know that the really good ice comes in hand carved spheres of ice made from Canadian purified water. Now instead of paying too much for a bottle of water you can drop 8 bones on just the ice instead. On the bright side ice balls supposedly don’t dilute your equally expensive drink and cool it evenly. glace-ice.com Source


Gold Backpack – $1650

Where’s the fun in being incredibly rich unless you’re also incredibly flashy? The gold rucksack by the Billionaire Boys Club features their trademark diamond dollar pattern, making an excessively expensive item even more over the top. With only 4 of these available at $1650 it’s anyone’s guess at how long before they sell out. bbcicecream.com Source


Diamond Encrusted Bluetooth Headset – $50000

If your wife is concerned that her big ugly plastic bluetooth is overpowering her gold and diamond earrings, why not compromise? Oh this diamond encrusted bluetooth headset is for you? Well it’s good to know that if you have enough money you can wear any crazy accessory and still be confident in your masculinity. Source


Goldplated Staples – $175

If you’re really rich, you know that displaying your wealth goes beyond flashy clothes and a luxury car… a true measure of wealth is all in the details. You can’t possibly expect anyone to fully understand just how filthy rich you really are unless even your staples are gold plated. It may not get any more excessive than gold staples packaged in a velvet jewelry box sitting on top of your desk. oooms.nl


Gold Light Switch – $250

Any respectable modern home owner wouldn’t be caught dead with a clapper, but that doesn’t mean rich people have to get out of bed to turn off a light themselves. How absurd! No, they have a gold wireless light switch encased in Lucite at their bedside. What’s $250 to never be bothered with something so tedious again? areaware.com


Luxury Frisbees – $305

Your old plastic frisbee may hold a special place in your heart, but it doesn’t reflect your penchant for frivolous luxury items quite the same way the Leather Flying Disc Geoffrey Parker does. These fancy frisbees fly surprisingly far, although you’ll probably never toss one in the yard for fear of tossing away $305.  That’s an expensive game of Ultimate Frisbee!   zontikgames.com


Tiffany Tennis Ball Can – $1500

Be honest, the only reason you even play tennis is to network with the other rich guys at your country club. Since you’re playing to impress, why not get a fancy can to keep your balls in? Of course because it’s Tiffany, this particular tennis ball can is made of sterling silver and will set you back $1500. tiffany.com


Louis Vuitton Skateboard – $8,250

If you’re a skater you probably have no interest in a Louis Vuitton skateboard. But to be fair, anyone interested in a Louis Vuitton skateboard for over $8000 probably isn’t too interested in skateboarding either. This is a great example of how being rich is all about being one of 3 possible owners of a weird designer collectible that isn’t intended for use. The board premiered at the launch of their new location in SoHo where you could also snag one of 70 $250 T-shirts.

Nesmuk Diamond Studded Knife – $39600

As it turns out the world’s sharpest knife is also the world’s most expensive. And for reasons we can’t understand comes with a matching ring, although for $39600 you’d expect a little something extra. This pricey piece of cutlery consists of a carbon steel blade and a sterling silver handle adorned with 8 diamonds. Source


Carbon Fiber Toilet Seat – $249

You have to admit that of all the crazy expensive toilets made of costly materials the carbon fiber toilet seat actually looks pretty cool. Not to mention it beats the 24K gold toilet seat by leaps and bounds in terms of practicality. Gold is flimsy, but this freaking toilet seat will be around longer than you will. Source


Little Something Gold Vibrator – $325

Why does this vibrator cost $325? Is it because this Little Gold toy is silent, or because it’s waterproof and long lasting? Or does it simply come down to the fact that it’s made of 24k gold? Either way, being rich is about indulging yourself and is there really a better way to do that than with a 24K Gold vibrator you can use in in your giant indoor swimming pool? jimmyjane.com


Leather Gold & Silver Monopoly Set – $7570

This leather, gold and silver Monopoly set with your choice of pewter or silver pieces will set you back anywhere from $4-$7k. But it’s totally worth the experience of buying as much property as you can and charging you friends in the game right before you buy the deeds to their actual homes because that’s just how freaking rich you are. zontikgames.com


Crystal Ergoripado Vaccum – $18993

If a inconspicuous vacuum like the Kone isn’t your style, then maybe you’d enjoy something a bit more noticeable. One average vacuum and 3730 Swarovski crystals later and you have the Crystal Ergoripado, most expensive home cleaning appliance ever clocking in at $18993.   Personally, if I had this cash to burn I’d be rolling on a Ducati Streetfighter, and still have $3k in my pocket.  Source


Gokukawa Leather Keyboard – $603

Plastic? Pu-lease. When you have the perfect manly study, complete with rich leather chairs, a full liquor cabinet, a fireplace and let’s throw in a 50 inch plasma TV for good measure… would you have a cheap plastic keyboard on top of your solid mahogany desk? Absolutely not. You would have a soft leather keyboard with monogrammed keys to compliment your lavish surroundings. Considering your tastes, $603 for Gokukawa Leather Keyboard will barely make a dent in your budget. Source


Diamond Studded Hoodie – $10000

Nothing says “Look at me, I’m a rich douche bag” like this diamond studded hoodie from Konquest. Worth $10000, this piece of urban couture features over 4000 Swarovski crystals and a 3 carat diamond zipper pull and hand-painted designs. For something so glitzy, the artwork takes an interesting masculine tone featuring skulls and horns which may make this the only Swarovski covered garment intended for (straight) guys. konquestcollection.com


Gold and Diamond Earbuds – $5175

We’ve all seen blinged out iPods, but what about earbuds that cost more than your computer? These 18 carat gold and diamond earphones feature 118 high quality diamonds and despite all the extra weight are said to be just as comfortable as your cheap plastic pair. Source


Ergo Swarovski Magnifying Glass

We’d love to be so rich that even the magnifying glass we use to examine our jewels is covered in jewels. This Swarovski Crystal covered magnifying glass by Ergo lets you see the world at 4 times magnification, but may enhance the flaws of anything not as sleek and shiny as itself. Unfortunately we don’t know the price, but you can be sure that it costs more than a magnifying glass should. Source


Radioactive Denim Metallic Jeans – $600

Anyone knows that a good pair of $600 jeans should look really really shiny. They look just like your other $600 pairs of jeans, with a button fly and tapered leg, except they’re also metallic and make you feel like a rock star from the future. Who wouldn’t want that kind of attention to their pants? eluxury.com


Crocodile Skin Umbrella – $50000

Maybe crocodile skin would make sense as an efficient water repellent if it wasn’t so damn expensive. At $50000 this umbrella should come with someone to follow you around holding it over your head… seriously that beats a blogger’s salary. Hey rich guys, if you’re reading this, skip the crocodile skin and hire me to hold a regular umbrella over your head. That’ll definitely get your more attention at eccentric rich guy parties. Seriously, if you’re interested… Source


Million Dollar Fishing Lure

Not everything is enhanced by encrusting it with diamonds and rubies, but that didn’t stop MacDaddy Fishing Lures from creating the Million Dollar Fishing Lure. Three pounds of platinum means it’s sure to sink fast, be we doubt it would help you catch a million dollar fish. macdaddysfishinglures.com Source

    Thats so funny. People dumb enough to pay that kind of money are seriously insecure.

    If I have a Porsche and my buddy a pushbike and he complains then by all means call him a Socialist or even Communist.

    With the west having a big problem with kids and obesity and 10000 kids dying daily for lack of clean water elsewhere…we are not talking political ideology….Its selfishness.

  • AmStatic

    i don’t get the anger and hatred towards people with money… it’s theirs..they can spend it how they like…and by spending it, they make other people rich…

    It all sounds like jealousy when you think “people make too much money”…. if I made 100k, who are you to say that’s too much? If I make 300k, who are you to say it’s too much? If I make 1mil who are you to tell me it’s too much?? If I earn it, I should keep it.

    Maybe the desire to make more money might get some of you malcontents working a little harder and griping a little less. Someday, I hope to be that rich to afford things like this. And if I’m not, I won’t begrudge anyone else who does.

  • Tailwhip

    Im all for people spending their money on whatever, it’ll boost the economy. But wasting natural resources (gold) on such unproductive stuff isnt just a waste of money. Awfully gaugy crap too. “The End”

  • Douchebag

    Honestly,

    the comments are far more interesting than the topic itself!
    so lets say im commenting on the comments.
    “interesting…..”

    Couldn’t help but notice that the Renova Colored Toilet Paper also came in the color Black, which probably would be fine strictly for show. Not so sure black toilet paper to be very practical.

  • sidewallfusion

    I would love to have them all. Compliments to the designers…

  • http://www.alex.com Alex

    this is ridiculous all the money in the world wouldn’t save the humility u will have by using this stuff!

  • http://www.sploggle.com Pete

    Wealth is relative, for many people in this world the asking prices for those items is just small change.

    The people designing those items know this and cash in, that’s the system.
    I would love to have the keyboard and the million dollar fishing lure,

    If I did have the cash for those items then I’m sure my favorite charities would also be well supprted.

We have driven oil shortages to serious consequence for you, We have an astounding Military build up in progress,We copy patents, name brands unabashedly and with impunity, We buy up resources you can’t steal with your great armies, acquiring Iran’s Azadegan Fields just recently, and will lend Plutonium, and its delivery systems to the Ayatollahs to protect our oil in Iran, in secret as you did for Isreeal! Two secrets now! Toucher! We have the American dollar on the run! We will replace it shortly with the Yuan in international trade, just by promising stability and no “Fiat” printing sprees! We buy real estate in the U.S., Whole factories, industries and move them to China, lock, stock, and barrel, right before your eyes, your capitalists, corporatists sell you out, in China they would be charged with treason, and shot in public, their bodies scavenged for organ transplantation – that is how efficient we are!Very soon, as the dollar continues its downward fall, we will take our reserves of sawbuck and buy you out, playing your own game on you, at ten cents to the dollar, and you will sell, to buy food to keep your over-fat asses alive, and we will own you! Slaves to a communist regime, not free to partake, like members, ever! Satellite servants at our beck and call, Mercenaries if we so wish, We will use you! Buy Yankee Fools, Buy ! We await your downturns with glee and in almost sexual anticipation.What can we take from these greedy self-consumed “Hairy Monkeys” next!

  • Wampum

    Uncle B, shut the hell up.
    Also, to those who think “what about starving third world countries”, then maybe you should consider taking a look at what crap you didn’t need and could’ve spent on a better cause.
    Get over yourselves!
    Finally, I 100% agree that this is all crap. Except the staples. Now I can staple assignments, reports, and any other message with class. I can even staple myself with style.

  • david

    i wish i had a million dollars id got buy that lure right now!
