Christmas gift guide: Luxury ideas for the fabulously wealthy

Is that Christmas bonus burning a hole in your pocket? We've ravaged the retail world for the some of the most sumptuous tech items for you or your most decadent relations

Nothing says 'I love you' like blowing a shed-load of cash on an expensive gift. We've trawled the upmarket shopping malls to bring you some of the most outrageously luxurious gifts the world has to offer.

Whether you're after a seriously impressive watch, an unbelievably precious phone or the simple elegance of a crystal-coated pair of headphones, we've got the treat you need. If you're going to buy something for someone with expensive tastes, you're sure to find lots of inspiration in this luxury gift guide.

TAG Heuer Calibre S Lewis Hamilton Limited Edition, £1,500
Ever since TAG Heuer supplied Steve McQueen's Monaco watch for the film Le Mans, the brand has retained close links with the world of motorsports. It's fitting, then, that they've created a special edition timepiece to celebrate Lewis Hamilton's amazing achievements in the F1 championship this year. But even without the Hamilton link, this watch is still something special. It uses the company's latest Calibre S hybrid electro-mechanical movement, which is accurate to 1/100th of a second and has five bi-directional micro-engines and 230 mechanical components. Seeing as the quartz movement in the average ticker has just 30 components, this timepiece is truly the Formula 1 champion of watches. The watch isn't available online, but you can call 0800 037 9658 for your nearby stockist.
