I've seen some fairly outrageous shopping suggestions in Elle Decor, such as $10,000 sofas and $500 throw pillows. However, I don't think this holiday gift suggestion from their December, 2012 issue can be topped.
It's a "Jam Pot with Bent Spoon" from Asprey (whatever that company is - I'm guess I'm too poor).
Think how delighted your gift recipient will be! Mostly because I imagine it would be pretty nice to have such a rich friend.
One who doesn't even know that jam already comes in a perfectly good jar when you buy it.
Or that any spoon - better yet, a knife - will do the job just fine.
Man, I would take that friend for all they had. I'd be like "Yay! A jam jar! But, oh, if only I could afford the jam to put inside it. That stuff is super expensive. And I'll never be able to afford a little bread plate, making it impossible to use your otherwise completely practical gift. Speaking of which, have you seen how the price of bread has skyrocketed lately?"
Side note: If someone did actually give me this insane jam jar, I would be too afraid to ever use it. How bad would you feel after accidentally dropping a $925 piece of glass? That's like a sit-in-your-garage-parked-car-with-the-engine-running mood inducing catastrophe.
Silly Elle Decor.
Side, side note: When I showed my brother my new Chevy Volt, the very first thing he pointed out was that it must be a lot harder to kill yourself in an electric car. Perhaps worse, this seemed like a normal thing for him to say. Worse yet, I had already given that some thought and explained to him that you just need to drain the battery first, then it functions like a typical deadly vehicle.
