Lap of Luxury

My better half is celebrating a birthday today and I've been trying to think of the perfect gift for the person who says he needs nothing. He's impossible to buy for like a lot of men. He loves our boat so I thought maybe a nicer one....

The Red Square super yacht built by Dunya Yachts is now being listed for sale, for $86 million that is! The Turkish shipyard spared no expense when it came to this luxurious yacht that features not one but two helipads, accommodations for 16, an infinity pool and jacuzzi and a cruising speed of 14 knots.  

I don't know, he's pretty fond of our pontoon boat. It fits our lives just fine!

He and GRANDson Gavin have nearly worn the wheels off our golf cart this summer, maybe a new one would be the perfect gift!

For $17,000 we could buy one that is manufactured by Garia, built in the same factory as the Porsche Boxter...and they have a new version that will have safety seat belts, side mirrors, and a hydraulic braking system. Gavin would LOVE it!

I wouldn't say art is at the top of his "Must Have List," but this 207-carat Diamond Snoopy made by Hong Kong jeweler TSL would be a one-of-a-kind gift! At 5.5 inches, this luxury Snoopy features 9,917 diamonds, 783 black diamonds and 415 rubies. It took TSL’s designers over eight months to create this sparkling Snoopy and if you have a spare $427K lying around he can be yours!

Too bad he just bought a new Prius, he'd for sure like this new Corvette ZR1 better! With a sticker price of just $111,100, it's 638-horsepower, 6.2-liter, supercharged LS9 V-8 engine makes it one of the most powerful production cars ever constructed. Probably  wouldn't get even close to the 55 mpglike the Prius though. After all, do we want to look cool or be economical? 

I think he's got motorcycles out of his system after having 3...but newly-born American motorcycle manufacturer Roehr sell this electric super bike for street and racing. The 1250sc, offers up  to 180 horsepower via a modified and supercharged Harley-Davidson Revolution motor. That’s plenty of power, and a 10 kWh lithium iron phosphate battery pack that will provide the power to attain speeds up to 100MPH easily. On second thought, let's cross this off the list!

I'm leaning more to a great get-a-way  like this intimate and luxurious Maroma Hotel in Riviera Maya, Mexico. Known for it's superb private beaches, leisurely breakfasts every morning, couple’s body massage with chocolate-covered strawberries and champagne AND three-course dinners for two on the beach sounds like the perfect present for me him.

He'll most likely appreciate the bottle of scotch that he receives most of all. It goes well with a cigar at the end of a hard day. Unfortunately, I couldn't find this bottle of Macallan 57 Lalique, “The Finest Cut“, an extremely rare single malt scotch that is housed within an exquisite limited edition decanter. The rare 57 year old single malt whiskey from the famous Speyside Distillery (founded in 1824), was a little pricey...$15,000!
Well Honey, you deserve to have ALL of these fantastic gifts and more! Happy birthday...hope this one will be just as much fun as when you were a kid!
