The bling: It’s the time of year when we make changes. We consider the state of the world and wonder what we can do to make it a better place. And yes, we quickly realize that we should be more proactive, and more ready to part with some of our massive stockpile of cash. After a fantastic year riding the global economy, making whoopee with the resources the Earth still holds, feeding our bellies and our pockets with the fat of the land, it’s time to get something back. Honestly, you’ve done all that you possibly could to create an atmosphere of possibility for those who are prepared to work hard and sacrifice anything and everything to get ahead. If they still can’t make a buck, that’s hardly your fault. Seriously, you’ve held true to your free-market beliefs, never wavering in your worshipping of all that glitters, and you have the gold to prove it. It’s time to relax and reap your reward. And what better payback than a splash of unapologetic opulence? You deserve it, really you do. Surround yourself with all that the love of money can buy.

The hidden extras: Bar, media room, indoor pool—all you need to entertain this year2
