Every year, shortly before Christmas Neiman Marcus reveals their luxe list of over-the-top holiday gifts that are great for gifting and even better for receiving. The chances of being able to afford any one of these items is low, but that doesn’t mean that looking at this luxury Christmas Catalogue doesn’t lift our spirits. In previous lists they’ve included a ticket to the Grammys and a journey to the edge of space. From collectible toys to one-of-a-kind experiences, Neiman Marcus has once again put together a collection of gifts that’s imaginative, interesting and very, very expensive.
Madame Alexander dolls for a year + one custom creation, $8000
The gifting begins with 8 dolls in December and then one every month for the next 11 months. The dolls take on various forms from well-known storybook characters like Alice in Wonderland and Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz to princesses and royalty. Also included is the Grand Anniversary Dollhouse from KidKraft. The most impressive though element though, is the final doll which will be custom created for the recipient who will be consulted on the hair color, eye color, and outfit design of the toy.
A private flight & photo session with Gray Malin, $35,000
Fine art photographer Gray Malin is famous for his aerial scenes but for one hour, your giftee will have his expertise all to themselves. The session takes place in a helicopter as it soars over the beaches of Los Angeles and Malibu. After Malin takes the perfect shot, he and the giftee will return to his studio to edit and perfect it after which the lucky will get a signed and framed version of the personalized picture. The experience also includes a 2 night stay at an Oceanside resort in Santa Monica.
Sisley-Paris experience + products for a year, $60,000
This three day adventure is everything a spa and skincare lover could ask for. It includes a pampering spa day at Maison Sisley, a three day stay at the Four Seasons Hotel George V, and a year’s worth of customized Sisley products. Sisley’s skincare products are legendary and a year’s worth will certainly go a long way. They’ll also throw in a snack at Sisley’s private clients-only café and a private lunch with a member of Sisley’s founding d’Ornano family in their famous apartment.
Rolls-Royce specially commissioned Dawns for you + me, $439,625 + $445,750
If you and a friend ever made a pact to own matching cars, then this is the time to make good. These Rolls Royce Dawn Drophead Coupés are inspired by two of the most glamorous locales in the world: Lake Como and Saint-Tropez. Saint Tropez orange is slightly more expensive with a Seashell leather interior, accented with Dark Spice and Mandarin, with a dashboard and doors paneled in rich Canadel open-pore wood, along with luxurious lambswool floor mats. The Conistan blue features a crisp Selby Grey and Black interior of hand-sewn leather, complemented by a brushed metal dashboard.
A private New Year’s Eve party for 300 above Times Square, $1,600,000
This gift allows the lucky recipient to host a New Year’s Eve party unlike any other. The venue: the rooftop of the Knickerbocker Hotel, 150 feet from the Times Square ball; the guest list: 299 people that you can’t party without! But don’t think this is a one night only deal, the giftee will have 150 premier rooms to fill for two nights at The Knickerbocker, complete with city views, sleek decor, and spa-like bathrooms. On the 31st of December 2018, the lucky giftee can watch the ball drop with friends while enjoying premium drinks, a sumptuous passed dinner, and a spirited DJ.
