Default men vs women what would you buy?

A holiday home in Tuscany, a Tiffany diamond ring and a personal trainer might seem like every woman's dream but when it comes to spending a fortune, men's ideas are somewhat different.

The findings emerged from a poll of 3,000 people by EuroMillions which asked: 'What would you buy if you won the jackpot?'

Default Re: men vs women what would you buy?

If I had a sh1tload of money my preference for purchase would be (in order of preference):
1. A reasonably sized house in the country with a good sized garden.
2. About 6 cars of various types and sizes (sports, limo, classic, 4 x 4)
3. 3 holidays a year
4. Double the size of my wardrobe.
5. Invest enought to give a reasonable amount of income so I didn't have to work and then work for free in places where I could help people, including VSO
5. Somewhere along the line I would spread the wealth amongst friends and family

Thinking about it, there isn't really a lot of material stuff that I would want. I just want free time when I want it.

Wink Re: men vs women what would you buy?

I can see the appeal of the boat but something wooden which offers a sail option for cruising around the world in perpetual summer .

Also quite fancy learning to fly. Maybe wasting the rest on one of those hair brained schemes like curing a nasty disease or educating people in developing countries.

Don't see why you would need to win the lotto for an iPad/Phone .

Oh yes, I also forgot to put a boat on my previous list. A nice widebeamed Dutch canal boat in the UK and a sea going boat in the Med.

Sorry that should read '2 boats'
