A holiday home in Tuscany, a Tiffany diamond ring and a personal trainer are just some of the things women wish they could have; it was revealed yesterday.
The findings emerged from a poll of 3,000 people by EuroMillions which asked ‘What would you buy if you won the jackpot?’
The men’s list included a host of items many of us can only dream of owning including a £5m Manhattan penthouse, a £97,000 Aston Martin Vantage 8 – and an iPhone 5.
A £36m GulfStream G6 private jet, a Princess bespoke hand-built yacht or a vineyard also featured on the male wish list.
The results showed the average woman would splash the cash on £2,000 Christian Louboutin or Jimmy Choo shoes, holidays and diamonds.
A spokesperson for EuroMillions said: “We wanted to give people the chance to think of things which are beyond their wildest dreams – the kind of things you could by with a massive jackpot win
”The two lists are fascinating – women seem to love the idea of owning designer fashion items, but have also included a few things which would make their home more stylish.
”Men go straight for the transport and gadgets, wanting the very latest developments in technology and vehicles alike.”
The survey shows more than a third of women love the idea of having a personal trainer to give them a complete body overhaul if they could afford it.
Sought-after designer items for ladies include a Chanel handbag, a Vera Wang wedding dress, a Rolex watch and a Mulberry handbag.
Desirable household appliances included on women’s wish lists are a SMEG fridge, an Aga and a Dyson vacuum cleaner.
What is apparent from the list is that men have an altogether more random approach to spending their imaginary giant jackpot win.
Unusual items to appear in men’s top 20 wish list include a racehorse, a castle and a trolley dash at Selfridges.
And when it comes to transport, men would love to own a private helicopter, a Bugatti Veyron, and a Formula One car.
Gadgets which hold appeal for the average bloke include the iPad 2, a Nintendo 3DS and an Omega Seamaster watch.
The study also shows that 41 per cent of women and 25 per cent of men love the idea of having a personal shopper to help them with all their special purchases.
Ideally, women would go shopping at least twice a week, but 14 per cent could happily shop daily – this is compared to the majority of men being content with a quick shop once a week.
