1. Your Very Own Bouncy Castle


Who cares that you're an adult with a job and bills to pay? In fact, that's as good a reason as any to justify having a giant inflated castle in your backyard. No one has to know you secretly want this.

4. An Espresso Machine


We're not talking just any ol' espresso machine, either. We want something with all the bells and whistles: a brass body, sturdy parts, multiple spout options... extreme excessiveness all for the sake of the most perfect shot of espresso.

6. A New Pad

We're all adults here, and as adults, we want nice things. And a nice place to keep our nice things. Like some sort of penthouse loft that you pretty much only see on television. Someday...

7. A Sweet New Ride


Even if you're not that much of a car enthusiast, who could argue with heated seats that automatically readjust when you take a sharp curve, or a voice-activated assistant that makes you feel like you're in a sci-fi film? That's right. Nobody.

8. This Awesome Reading Nook

Even if you don't like to read that much, it just feels right to have a space like this in your home. Perfect for napping, sitting, thinking, or whatever it is you want to do. After all, it's yours to do with as you please.

9. A Hot Tub


No longer shall Monday and Wednesday send you home with your tail between your legs. Getting to simmer in your own hot tub will solve all your problems, no matter how bad of a day you might have had.

10. Heated Floor Tiles

One of the top 10 worst sensations ever is walking on cold bathroom tiles in the morning. Imagine a world in which this were no longer an issue...

11. A Personal Chef


We're all foodies at heart. And while some of us may enjoy cooking, there is no denying how awesome it would be to have a professional chef cook up tasty surprises without any work on our part.
