The World’s Most Expensive Apple Watch, £150,000, from www.firebox.com

An Apple watch is indulgent enough, but how about one that's made using 18k gold and encrusted with diamonds?

There's even a sapphire crystal retina display thrown in. Function wise it will do everything your usual Apple smart watch does, it just does it with more than a touch of glamour. The big stumbling block? Its £150,000 price tag.

Samsung Family Hub Smart Fridge, £4,499, from www.johnlewis.com

Who can be bothered to go home and check what's in the fridge before hitting the supermarket? If you've invested in this chiller, then it's not you. The rather large fridge - which will be coming to John Lewis stores over the next few months, features cameras inside the door.

So, when you're out and about you can quickly take a scan of what you've already got and whether you need an extra pint of milk. In addition, it's got a giant touch screen on the front which can remind you when food will be going off.

You can also use the tablet like a pin board to put important dates in your diary and follow recipes on it, and even do an online food shop on it. Now that's one cool fridge.

Sony Bravia KD85XD8505BU Smart 4k Ultra HD HDR 85” LED TV, £10,199, from www.currys.co.uk

Forget squinting at a tiny screen above the mantelpiece, what you need is an 85-inch whopper that comes with crystal clear display, bright colours and also has Google Android capabilities.

Granted, it will set you back more than a just few pounds, but when money's no issue, this won't be a problem at all.

HENES Broon T870 Ride On Car, £1,499, from www.harrods.com

Forget your average tricycle, what your little one needs is a four-wheel drive which comes with a leather buckle seat, shock absorbers and perhaps most impressively, a dashboard equipped with a seven-inch tablet.

They'll enjoy filling up the trunk and looking under the hood, while there's an indicator and brake LED lights, too.

NEFF C17KS61N0 Built-in Bean to Cup Coffee Machine, £1,799, from www.currys.co.uk

You've got the Hollywood Hills style kitchen and when your personal chef serves up your breakfast, you want to make sure your coffee is just so.

This built-in coffee maker will produce the perfect cup - whether you prefer an espresso, macchiato or cappuccino.

The sleek design and capabilities will make it a talking point when people pop round to see how the other half live, too.

MTD Tractor Lawn Mower - SMART RN145, £2,499.99, from www.homebase.co.uk

While you will have a gardener on hand to take care of your many acres, you want to make sure that you're a considerate employer with this sit-on beast.

It's petrol fuelled, made of steel and comes with a Briggs & Stratton engine.

You've got the convertible car sitting in the garage, so you want to make sure your lawn mower looks just as impressive sitting next to it.
