Since I keep hearing that huuuge tax cuts are on the way and we’re all going to be rich thanks to trickle-down economics, I thought we should have a plan for all that green coming our way.

My gift guides are typically small-to-medium-budget friendly, but today, I thought I’d throw caution to the wind and explore some of the more extravagant gifts. As my mother told me in Bergdorf Goodman’s when I was a child, just think of it as a museum with price tags. I also usually try to publish my gift guides earlier, leaving enough time to receive the items by Christmas and Hannukah, but hey, if you can afford this stuff, expedited shipping shouldn’t pose a problem!

Exerpeutic 2000 WorkFit Treadmill Desk ($879). I would love this for exercising while I work on my blog, but if someone asks me a question while I'm on the treadmill, I immediately stop walking and fall off. I'd be dead in a week.

Leisure Season Outdoor Swing Bed with Canopy ($619) I could do some amazing napping in this thing. Of course, I'd also have to hire someone to keep the neighborhood cats off it...

Tiffany & Co. Airplane Bank ($2,500). Unless it's for actual gold doubloons, spending $2,500 on a coin bank seems a little nutty, even for Tiffany. Sure is pretty though!

  3. I love those knives. It’s like luxury culinary equipment designed by the Cat in the Hat. The efficiency on space also appeals. But of all the things on this list I would most want if I had so much disposable income I could be interior frivolous would be that jellyfish tank. I could watch jellyfish all day. And I could threaten my enemies with stings.

  4. Just in case any rich person knows me and is reading your blog (it could happen), I ‘ll take the hammock, guitar or knives.

    By the way, if you lived in Hollywood, I bet you could be someone’s personal shopper.

  8. I waited until AFTER CHRISTMAS to check out this one, because, well, I didn’t want to stumble across something I decided that I really “need”. And mostly, I’m good. Although I have ALWAYS wanted to live in a snow globe.
