For the good boys and girls who happen to have wealthy families, Santa Claus has brought some wonderful gifts under the Christmas tree this year.

While many of us treasure Christmas morning for the family time it brings, families who bought these items will, no doubt, be occupied with their shiny new things, such as a beautiful handmade English dollhouse that high-end fashion retailer Moda Operandi is selling for $57,670.

If you forgot to get little Timmy or Tammy a present, you can always give them an IOU for these gifts that say, "I may have forgotten to get you a Christmas present, but here's my money to make up for that."
