There is definitely nothing wrong with wanting finer things in life. In most cases, it is this desire that fuels a man to work harder to “make it in this world”.
For some men, possessing and showing off these things once achieved, give them a feeling of satisfaction. While others are more low-key and take comfort in knowing they’ve invested in high-quality luxury items and enjoy them privately.
And with Christmas fast-approaching, you might want to get one of these items for yourself as a gift. Or if you have a friend, relative, or business partner who is wealthy or has expensive taste, you can pick a meaningful gift for him from this list.
Here are some of the luxury items you might want to set your eyes on:

3. Triton Luxury Personal Submarine
Do you dream of owning a million dollar superyacht? You can cruise below the seven seas as well by gifting him a luxury personal submarine. Surreal wonders await adventurers who venture deep into the sea floor (97 percent of which remains unexplored). By diving into the deep, you’ll likely see things that no one else on Earth has seen before—such as surreal photoluminescent creatures, rare deepwater fish, and the ruins of an ancient shipwreck.
Triton offers a range of luxury personal submarines—including the Triton 1650/3 LP and the Triton 6600/2. These submersibles are designed, tested, and certified to the most rigorous safety standards and are constructed from the finest materials.
To ensure a comfortable experience, the cabins of Titan submersibles are both climate and temperature controlled, while hand-stitched leather seats and an integrated sound system will make diving hundreds of miles below the surface of the Earth less disorienting and more pleasurable for you.
Triton submersibles are also used for underwater scientific and archaeological exploration. If you love the novel “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” or has always wanted to discover the real location of Atlantis, then a Triton submarine is perfect for you.
4. Blue Chip Wines
Like fine art and luxury real estate, the moneyed class is snapping up rare and valuable blue chip wines, as they’re seen as a sound investment and a great means of diversifying assets. If you adore fine wines and spirits, consider getting a bottle—or even an entire case—of blue-chip wines.
But what exactly are blue-chip wines? The term blue chip has been used in the stock and share markets to denote the most powerful, financially sound, and valuable companies in terms of market capitalization. Similarly, blue-chip wines refer to the world’s most expensive and prestigious wines. Only an elite selection of Bordeaux and Burgundy wines have attained blue-chip status.
Only Bordeaux wines from the Grand Crus range are considered to be blue-chip. These include Bordeaux’s left bank first growths (such as Lafite Rothschild, Latour, Margaux, and Haut Brion). Some non-classified Grand Crus of the right bank (such as Petrus, Le Pin, Ausone, and Cheval Blanc) are also considered to be blue-chip. As for Burgundy, only the Domaine de la Romanee Conti has attained blue-chip status.
Blue chip wines are regarded as a safe investment because their value never drops. In fact, their value is likely to increase in the coming years with the surge in demand and the drought in supplies.
To buy certified blue chip wines in mint condition, it’s best to consult the wine departments of reputable auction houses like Christie’s and Sotheby’s. Online and physical auctions of blue-chip wines are held regularly in London, New York, and Hong Kong.
5. Jaeger-LeCoultre’sDuomètre Unique Travel Time Watch

Do you love exquisite Swiss timepieces? If so, get a limited edition Jaeger-LeCoultreDuomètre Unique Travel Time Watch. Only 200 of these pieces have been painstakingly crafted by skilled artisans, and the dials are created using a freestyle chiseling process. As a result, each dial will be slightly different from the others: each will catch the light a little differently, will age slightly differently, and will possess a different character.
The dial’s color scheme is largely monochromatic and is enlivened by red, blue, and dark grey flashes. The dial also has two barrels which are wound by the same crown. Winding the crown counterclockwise winds the barrel responsible for powering the watch’s timekeeping element, whereas winding the crown clockwise winds the travel time zone barrel. Each barrel has a 50-hour power reserve.
If you value sophisticated craftsmanship, mention the watch’s 498 parts and 54 jewels, as well as its 18-carat white gold housing that’s water resistant up to 50 meters. The wrist is fashioned from alligator skin and has a white gold pin buckle.
