Here's how the 'Rich Kids of Instagram' are spending the holidays

You may think your holiday plans are pretty snazzy. It’s likely the Rich Kids of Instagram have you beat.

The world’s richest young Instagram users don’t take a day off. Whether they’re posing by a tree with a shocking number of gifts underneath it, jet-setting to an exotic locale, or steering a paddleboard near a tropical island, the sons and daughters of the global elite are always documenting it on their Instagram accounts.

Notorious Tumblr blog Rich Kids of Instagram has combed through the network, cherry-picking some of the most egregious examples of holiday-related excess. We’ve selected a few of our favourites here.

Many of the rich kids of Instagram are relaxing at home for the holidays.

In the elaborately decorated homes of their parents, they're putting their feet up.

For her Instagram contribution, Tiffany Trump, daughter of Donald Trump, poses in front of a variety of gifts underneath an enormous Christmas tree.

But they're not all staying home for the holidays. Many are off on adventures.

They're heading to parties in New York.

And going yachting in the tropics.

It's no surprise they travel in style, with plenty of booze for the trip.

They're also attending parties in extravagant dress.

And enjoying mountains of caviar and pricey champagne.

They haven't forgotten about the holiday shopping, either! Two of everything.
