#23 Precious Suitcases – King Abdullah ($1M)
No, we aren’t talking about luggage trolleys or Samsonite hard cases, but suitcases full of jewels. King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia gifted the erstwhile American President Barack Obama jewels worth over $1 million.
The overpriced gift hamper included three gold and silver-plated watches, and an awe-inspiring gold-plated replica of the Mecca Clock tower. The First Lady was also given a lavish gift hamper that cost more than $100,000. Now, that’s some powerful gift for the most powerful couple in the world.
