It’s that time of the year when we all pore over Neiman Marcus’ Christmas Book, a catalog of extremely impractical and completely decadent gift ideas. Some gifts are attainable like the Manolo Blahnik shoes priced just under $1,000 and even the Personal Transporter worth $1,800, but others like the Neiman Marcus limited edition Mustang convertible ($95,000) are just fanciful enough to earn the tag “Fantasy Gift.” This year, Neiman Marcus is taking you one step closer to these fantasies by displaying some of the most covetable gifts in their Christmas Book.
The display will be held at the posh Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City, Long Island. The mall is slated to become the home of Neiman Marcus’ 42nd full department store and the display of Christmas Gifts is a way to get shoppers interested in what is to come.
So what are the lustworthy gifts on display?
An Arch motorcycle and ride experience with Keanu Reeves, $150,000;
The Orphan Barrel Project of rare whiskeys and a trip to Kentucky, $125,000;
World View space exploration voyage trip, $90,000;
Italy tour with Ippolita Rostagno and Artemest craftsmen, $150,000;
Abigail and Paul Vogel Couture Diary, $10,000.
David Contis, president of Simon Malls, said in a statement, “Giving our Roosevelt Field shoppers a chance to view these gifts — beautifully presented in custom-designed cases — is something that has never been done before and is the perfect way to welcome in the holiday season. It’s also a glimpse into all that Neiman Marcus will add to the Long Island shopping scene when they open their Roosevelt Field location early next year.”
“This is a way to generate excitement in the mall beyond the regular advertising that’s to be expected,” Mimi Sterling, a spokesperson for Neiman Marcus, told Fortune. “This is to capitalize on the incredible holiday foot traffic at Roosevelt Field.”
