While this might be the year of the 99%, no one can deny that the 1% will be buying some outrageously overpriced gifts this holiday season. So if you’re a baller who is tired of giving out the luxury car with a giant bow on it year after year or you’re just dreaming, we’ve got the 12 most outrageous gifts we could find at our favorite store Hammacher Schlemmer. Be sure to check out the rest of our holiday gift guides.
It’s a giant three-dimensional spherical labyrinth which requires 425 turns to get the ball to the end of the maze without it falling off the track. It takes 400 hours to build and it actually might take you long enough to complete that you will get your $30,000 worth of entertainment from it. Or not.
Buy Superplexus at Hammacher for $30,000
Being part of the 1% is hard work and you’re going to need a place to relax and recharge. A $25,000 place. Sure you get supple calfskin leather filled with cold foam contoured to the shape of your body in an undulated shape in a semi-enclosed napping space, but what about your bed?
Buy Powernap Capsule at Hammacher for $25,000
Don’t get us wrong, we love Whac-a-mole and this might be the coolest version of a whac-a-mole game ever with speakers, a drink shelf, remote controlled closing cabinet but at this price you have to really really really like whac-a-mole. Really.

Sure this hammock does look cool as hell and is heavy duty, weighing 770lbs and is handcrafted in Sweden but 35g’s for a hammock?
Buy Petiole Hammock at Hammacher for $35,000
We’ve been promised flying cars for decades and now you can actually purchase one from Hammacher! It takes 30 seconds to convert the street legal 100hp car into a triple bladed propeller driven light sport aircraft that can hit speeds of 115mph. It fits in your garage, seats 2 and needs a 1700′ runway to take off. You can fly up to 425 nautical miles with the 23 gallon tank (which gets 35mph on the road too). I want this. Now.

These Bowers & Wilkins speakers look crazy and probably do sound crazy good but you know your snarky friends will be saying things like “he bought $60,000 speakers to play Ace of Base’s greatest hits?”. At least it will sound good.
Buy Optimal Resonance Audiophile’s Speakers at Hammacher for $60,000
You’re not really being a good parent unless you buy your kids a 20 foot long animatronic dinosaur. It has motion activated cameras in it’s eyes, along with facial recognition software to respond to you personally. A 1000 watt speaker inside keeps it loud too.
Buy 20 Foot Animatronic Triceratops at Hammacher for $350,000
It’s well crafted and finely tuned and a work of art- but it’s still just a music box. I suppose if you’re looking for a really expensive gift that doesn’t take up a lot of space, this would work for you.
Buy Swiss Watchmaker’s Boîte à Musique at Hammacher for $25,300
We all need an environment for creative working, meditation, and innovation. But not all of us can do it in a 12 foot diameter shingled pod with a gull-wing door. Fully heated, lit and powered to do whatever it is you plan in doing in this thing.
Buy Inspirational Archipod at Hammacher for $40,000
Tron: Legacy was a great movie but you can’t drive around in a light cycle like they do in the movie. OH WAIT, YES YOU CAN. This is a real street legal motorcycle with a Suzuki 996cc engine in there. You lay nearly horizontal as you drive around on hubless wheels. And if that doesn’t attract attention, the electroluminescent strips in the rims and body that light up the whole vehicle certainly will.
Buy Tron Light Cycle at Hammacher for $55,000
Bionic Boppers are like giant sized Rock em Sock em Robots. Two drivers go inside the bumper car-like bots and battle it out using joysticks to control the actions. Belly belly belly screen tallies the scoring hits.
Buy Bionic Boppers at Hammacher for $17,000
Since we’re not really in the market for a submarine, we can’t tell if you two million dollars is a good price or not. We can tell you that this two person submarine can dive to 1000 feet below the surface for up to 6 hours and that we will gladly make some room in our garage if someone buys this for us this holiday season (hint, hint).
Buy Personal Submarine at Hammacher for $2,000,000
