Tell him you’ll get him one of these presents the minute you become a millionaire! He’ll lose his mind over these insanely pricey gifts.
10. Or...A Skin Care Treat Worth Thousands
Dads are often massively misunderstood. Not all of them think guns are cool and worth their hard-earned money. Turns out, real men are vain.
If your dad loves male-specific skin care (but wouldn't admit or pay for it) then Geneu skin treatment might be the perfect gift for him. The company claims it can fix skin troubles based on every person’s DNA. For a whopping $4,320, your dad can have a skin treatment tailor-made to his genes. Amazing science, eh?
Not so fast. At the moment, results are not yet conclusive so you might want to hold off booking your dad for this DNA testing. Maybe try a fancy shaving kit instead?Read full article
9. Or...This Priceless Rifle
Forget Ferraris, tough dads love guns. Maybe your dad used to collect guns as a hobby but just had to stop because your college fund was more important. Time to return the favor to your gun-loving father.
If you’re wondering how much it will cost you to buy him the most expensive gun in the world, the ballpark figure is $1.2 million. Besides the fact that it was the first Winchester Model 1886 ever made, it was also priceless for its rich and controversial past.
You’d rather not mention this trivia to your dad. Cheaper versions of a similar rifle are available for $1000 - $2000.Read full article
8. A Ferrari. Cause...Why not?
Next to you and your mom, your dad loves a sweet and speedy Ferrari from the 60’s. He’s never told you why, but every time he sees one, he turns his head around, fixing his gaze on that two-seat coupe car.
Maybe it reminds him of his younger days. Want to revive his years of glory?
Then be ready to pay the price. Brand new ones command $200,000 to $400,000 but do you know that a fine vintage Ferrari cost more? A jaw-dropping $38 million. At least that was the most expensive Ferrari ever sold at an auction: the 1963 Ferrari GT Omologato.Read full article
7. A Bottle of the Priciest Whiskey
You’re on the seventh option and you haven’t yet decided what to get your dad? You’re really taking this father’s day gift-hunting seriously. Maybe a little too serious that you’re missing the obvious, like whisky.
Now you’re happy again knowing how easy it is to shop for a whisky-loving dad. Even the finest bottle won’t cost you a fortune, right? Well, not realy.
The most expensive whisky, The Macallan "M" decanter by Lalique, hammered for £393,109 ($560,396.53) in Sotheby’s 2014 Hong Kong Auction. I know what you’re thinking, you can buy two Ferrari cars with that money!
6. A Pair of the Most Expensive Shoes
Say you were willing to splash on the priciest pocket watch out of love for your dad but Sotheby’s wouldn’t tell you who bought it. Dead end? Not yet.
How about a pair of custom-made shoes with diamonds for the best father in the world? If American idol host and father of two, Nick Cannon, can pull off this look, so can your dapper dad.
The only question is: will you pay two million dollars for a pair of diamond-encrusted Tom Fords? Seems too lavish.Read full article
