OTT gifts for the groom who - quite literally - has everything
Kanye West is the man who has everything. He has a $1 million armored car. He has his own fashion label, a net worth of around $120 million, one of the cutest babies we've ever seen, a Vogue cover and, very soon, he'll have the hand of America's reality TV sweetheart Kim Kardashian. Which makes things difficult for poor Kim. What could she possibly gift Kanye with that he hasn't already got?
Disclaimer: We are not suggesting you buy these gifts for your groom - in fact, tomorrow, we'll have some altogether more practical gift ideas for, y'know, people with a budget! For now, let's escape to the fantastical world of Kimye and imagine the world is our oyster and money is no obect!
It's no secret that Kanye's a big fan of the art world; just last Christmas he gifted Kim with an Hermès bag, customized by renowed artist George Condo. So this Damien Hirst screenprint, estimated at between $13,400 and $20,200, would be right up his alley. This print is one of only 250, and signed by the artist - and it also comes framed.
If Kim is outbid for that Damien Hirst, she could always look to Hermès where, for $11,700, this backgammon game could soon be hers. It's made of a combination of wood and leather - in fact, even the pawns are made of calfskin, for that luxurious gaming experience. If backgammon isn't his game, Hermès also does tarot cards, chess sets and plain ol' memory game cards - which could double as a cute gift for baby North.
Kanye's love of fashion is no secret - so this $18,700 Balmain denim jacket should go down a treat. Granted, it's not the most romantic of gifts, but in this case you could just let the price tag do the talking. I <3 you = $18,700! The jacket features houndstooth, woven and quilted fabrics with chain embellishment - and, surprise, it's dry-clean only!
Lamborghini's Veneno Roadster, at $4.5 million, is the world's most expensive car - and with only nine being built throughout the course of the year, it's one of the most exclusive, too. It can do 0-60mph in just 2.9 seconds (that's less than it took to type this sentence) and has a top speed of 221 mph. Add to all that: it looks seriously great.
Last, but by no means least, for the bargain price of $250,000 (1/16th of the price of that Lamborghini), Kim could send Kanye to space with Virgin Galactic. Nope, that's not a joke - for a refundable booking fee of $250,000 you are guaranteed a space on one of Virgin Galactic's space flights, departing... well, details TBC. The good news is, that amount is fully refundable in case of a change of mind or, y'know, on the off-chance that you turn 70 before they're ready for take-off.
