Forget what you know about Christmas gift guides. Shut Up & Take My Money has been giving readers the gift of irresponsible spending since 2015 and today that tradition continues – regardless of whether you’ve been a bad boy.

Gucci Handcuffs

Who’s been a naughty boy or girl? Exclusive streetwear site Grailed have just listed this vintage pair of Gucci handcuffs for a staggering US$65,000. For the uninitiated, the cuffs were designed by Tom Ford back in 1998 as part of his provocative push during his tenure as the Creative Director.

Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 Premium Wireless Earphones

True wireless earphones are all the rage these days and Bang & Olufsen’s Beoplay E8 satisfies this craving with the addition of strikingly premium design. The earphones are designed to be used both indoors and outdoors (though we’d refrain from using them during active pursuits due to its price). The units provide up to 4 hours of play time on a single charge and features carry case which acts as a portable charger. That means up to 12 hours of play time can be mobilised with you in style.

Dunhill Handmade Chess Set

Check and mate, good sir. Dunhill’s latest exclusive offering comes in the form of a wooden chess set which looks as beautiful as it does to feel. The sculpted pieces are made from ebony and wood and when it’s time to pack it all a way, a Boston leather carry case finishes off the job.


Puna Multitool

This is not your average toy keychain. The Puna Multitool is quite the life saver with a built-in scalpel blade, micro screwdriver and bottle opener all in one stainless steel body. MacGuyver ain’t got nothing on this cool little keychain companion. It even comes in a cool aluminium case which replicates a carry case for a real gun.



Eames Lounge Chair Maharam Mohair

The latest version of the iconic Eames Lounge Chair comes in a new trim by Maharam. The lounge piece now sees the luxurious finish of Mohair Supreme fabric in five different colours which is paired with Ebony, Palisander or a White Ash wood frame. A fine appointment to any modern bachelor pad.

Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost & Rare

Johnnie Walker have released a pair of their most sought-after blended Scotch whiskies to date. A special edition Blue Label Ghost and Rare will feature a blend of eight whiskies from with three of them hailing from Cambus, Pittyvaich and Brora, which are all distilleries that no longer exist. The remaining five whiskies come from the maker’s existing distilleries to provide a drink that encompasses the fruity sweetness of pineapple, hazelnut and dark chocolate with a tinge of smoke.
