(TIML NEWS) What gift do you get for the person who has everything? This year, one option is an iPhone 7 encased in solid gold, encrusted with diamonds and bearing the face of Donald Trump.

 Priced around $151,000, it’s just one example of the mind-blowing bling sold by Goldgenie, a store in the United Arab Emirates where the super rich do their shopping.

“There are very wealthy, high-net-worth individuals all over the world and sometimes its very difficult to buy gifts for them because they have everything,” said Frank Fernando, Goldgenie’s managing director.

All the opulent objects on sale at his store in Sharjah, a city near Dubai, are either solid gold, gold plated or diamond encrusted. But the idea for the golden Trump iPhone came from a customer only recently.

A Chinese woman walked into the store last month and requested that Goldgenie put together the glitzy device emblazoned with the president-elect’s features, Fernando said, declining to identify the woman by name. He said he believes her family wants to give it to the U.S. president-elect after his inauguration next month.

If they do, the phone would fit well with the famously golden decor at Trump’s penthouse apartment in New York City.

Since selling that first Trump iPhone, Goldgenie has received a further nine orders for gold-plated ones bearing his face. Sound off below!!
