Tiffany & Co. have come under fire recently for their 'everyday items' collection which aims to "transform utilitarian items into handcrafted works of art".
1. Crazy Straw
Hosting a Christmas party this year? You can pick up this single crazy straw for €290. Designed to become a fun and festive addition to the home, the straw is made from sterling silver with a Tiffany Blue enamel accent.
Helping the kids with their math homework? Put this sterling silver and American walnut triangle to use for just €460.
3. Tin Can
This 'tin can' is made of sterling silver and shining vermeil and costs €1,150. You can put your pens in it.
4. Paper Clip Bookmark
This sterling silver over-sized paper clip is €190 and can be used as a 'whimsical' bookmark. Much better than the folding the corner down.
5. Ball of Yarn
This yarn ball is made of hand-spun strands of textured sterling silver. It is one of a limited edition of five handmade in New York and will set you back €10,400. Not entirely sure what it can be used for...
The 'Everyday Objects' Collection may be an incredibly extravagant and frivolous range of items but Tiffany's aren't the only guilty party in town.
6. Christmas Candle
This Acqua Di Parma Christmas Candle from House of Fraser comes in at a pricey £91 (approx €102). I imagine the scent must transport you to Lapland to visit Father Christmas.
7. Dart Board
If you're thinking of picking up a dartboard for your next party, Brown Thomas is selling this Purling London Premium Dartboard for €1,735.00. Just to be clear, you can still only throw darts at it.
As usual, Twitter was on hand to provide some of the funniest reactions to some of these pricey items.
