The £200million yacht: The Tropical Paradise Island comes complete with its own volcano, waterfall, pool, beach, helipad and spa



The rest of the world may be cutting back this Christmas, but the good times are still rolling for luxury goods companies who are producing ever more lavish gifts for billionaries with more money than sense.

Forget socks and soap, here’s our bank-breaking bling Christmas gift guide.

The £200 million yacht

Any old billionaire can afford a yacht — it’s having one that stands out from the rest that will prove your worth.



So what better than the Tropical Island Paradise — a yacht that looks like an island and comes complete with its own volcano, waterfall, pool, beach, helipad and spa? Obviously it’s bespoke, so if you wanted to throw in a ski slope, we’re sure that could be arranged, at extra cost.

The £850,000 pen

Back in the old days, the name Caran D’Ache was synonymous with colouring pencils, but apparently they make grown-up writing implements too. And they don’t get much more grown up than this white gold fountain pen that comes studded with more than 24 carats of diamonds.

The £8,700 duvet

For any oligarchs who are too tight to turn up the heating, there’s this super king duvet made exclusively from eider feathers. The eider, a large arctic duck, is protected so feathers must be collected from those it sheds in spring. The result is an ultra-light, ultra-warm duvet. thebestbedlinenintheworld.com

The £640,000 perfume

What girl wouldn’t want perfume for Christmas? And even if you hate the smell of DKNY Golden Delicious, which this contains, you’ll probably want the bottle. It’s a one-off that comes in 14 carat gold, 183 yellow sapphires and 2,700 diamonds. Best of all, it’s being auctioned off for Action Against Hunger.

The £100,000 bar

Albert Square it ain’t! Designed for Johnnie Walker Blue Label by the Porsche design team, only 50 of these bespoke whisky bars will be made. It’s James Bond-esque so expect motion sensors, chilled compartments that rise silently at the touch of a button, and one very expensive drink.

Top-end cooking kit: A matte black and aluminium barbecue designed by Porsche comes complete with a built-in rotisserie and electronic instruments and gauges



The £7,000 barbecue

If you decide to slum it and actually do the cooking yourself (how tiresome!) then at least you’d better have the top-end kit. In this case a matte black and aluminium barbecue designed by Porsche. It comes complete with a built-in rotisserie and electronic instruments and gauges – no excuse for burning the burgers or singeing the sausages with this.

The £140,000 shoes

Not still slumming it in your Louboutins, are you? Better put these on your list if you want to keep up with the private jet set. Each pair is handcrafted from solid gold and then encrusted with 2,200 brilliant cut diamonds, a total of 30 carats. Not sure how much nightclubbing those delicate heels will take, though.

The £115,000 personal flying machine

Searching for a novel way to get to your yacht? This could be the solution. Using the power of water (and a 4-stroke) engine, this gizmo allows you to fly ten metres above a lake or sea, at speeds of up to 35km/h – it’s the ultimate boy’s toy for the man who has everything.

And for a stocking filler....

The £95 coffee sleeve

If you have to buy a coffee rather than sending your butler out to procure one, don’t put up with a nasty cardboard sleeve, instead whip out your leather Jimmy Choo version. It’s black croc EFFECT leather (not actual croc, obviously, you don’t get that for under £100) but it does come with a gold plaque so everyone will know it’s Choo.

The £2,999 iPad

Because the bog-standard iPad, at £399, wouldn’t cut the mustard, Continental Mobiles has decorated this one’s Apple logo with 24-carat gold and diamonds.

The £1,400 fish and chip set

A hand-glazed hip flask and silver fork nestle inside this rosewood case — making a bottle of Sarsons and one of those wooden chippy forks look a little redundant.
