How about a guillotine-sharpening kit so the revolution is as humane as possible for them?

Because, seriously, would you want your head removed by a dull guillotine?

How about a chauffeur so we don't have to stand out in the wind, pumping our own gas like a schmuck?

wow, that was an appallingly written article. and the accompanying pics - two crappy louis vuitton luggage tags and a bentley barber chair - did the writer spend any time looking for examples?

There's more "dayyyum I wish I were rich!" stuff in Hammacher And Schlemmer.

Gift ideas from 100 to 600 bucks?!?

Submitter sounds poor.

I wonder if Submitter goes by the Apples store screaming and pointing at the "one percenters"?

Apple Ipad 400 bucks!!

I'm confused that subby seems to think not knowing what to get family on a gift holiday is a rich-only problem.  About half my immediate family is poor as hell, and we've already all got all the actual crap we need and no space to put any more.

That's how you tell people are poor. They don't own enough house to keep all their shiat in.

Came here to suggest a Kevlar turtleneck, glad to see more and more people are warming to this idea.

We'll always have Paris. In 1793. As inspiration.

How about nothing, and let the person buy themselves something if they want it?

My family basically stopped giving the adults gifts to each other ages ago.  (We do still get things for the kids)  Magazine subscriptions are about the limit- my parents get me the Economist, I get my sister the New Yorker, etc.   I've tried to get my in-laws to stop giving me things but they can't stand for me to not open anything, no matter how often I tell them I don't care.

My desire for MOAR THINGS! is very, very low.  The few things I actually want are so personal and specialized I don't want anyone else buying them for me- I'm going to get myself a nice acoustic guitar for my birthday, but there's no way I want someone to get me one- it's a choice only I can make.

All the day to day stuff I already have.

Fark sounds poor. See this thread where people seem to want to decapitate people who can spend $500 on a gift because reasons.

It's almost like there's some correlation between frequenting Internet forums to complain about "rich" people and not being rich.

Oooo, I can live out my James Bond fantasy and try to shoot Olivia D'Abo (or was it the other one...).  Would prefer something less destructive to shoot her with however.  Perhaps a meat slug.

This article was pretty terrible, but content and style (few pics, no links). I was kind of hoping to see something I'd covet, but nope.

I will assume you can't read the writing on the side because it's too small :)
Walther WA 2000. I think the last one I heard about selling went for $80,000. Saw a manual for one on gunbroker for $500.

Although some company is now making a .22 version.

I opened the article expecting to laugh at idiotically overpriced and totally impractical luxury items, instead I see a sextant. Something that is pure utility and really not at all overpriced considering it is a scientific instrument. Article fails.

We used to have this problem, too.  Now each adult picks another adult's name and makes a charitable contribution to their favorite charity.  The kids still get gifts and the oldsters still get something.  It has really made things a lot easier.

The middle section turns slowly to keep your automatic wristwatch wound up on the days when you aren't wearing it. It's great for anyone who has a Monday-to-Friday 'office' watch as well as an 'outdoor' one for the weekends, because it saves you from having to re-set the time and date when you switch them.

You might be surprised: my sister's a psychologist.  Her (quite serious) advice to me one year was to drink more heavily.

/Given that all the kids were hopped up on presents and sugar, advice was taken quickly...
