It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
Neiman Marcus has come out with its 2019 Christmas Book, full of outrageously expensive gifts. This is the first year that every gift is under one million dollars. So if you’re ever going to buy something from this catalog, this may be the year. Here are my three favorite “fantasy” items:
- Fulfill your secret agent fantasies in an ASTON MARTIN DBS SUPERLEGGERA designed by 007 himself, DANIEL CRAIG. Available in a run of seven—naturally—each limited-edition car comes in a beautiful inky blue and features a powerful twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 engine, producing immense torque and extraordinary in-gear performance. As if that weren’t enough, you’ll also receive one of only seven limited-edition, all-platinum Seamaster Diver 300M OMEGA timepieces—each featuring a unique hand-engraved case back—plus tickets to the world premiere of NO TIME TO DIE, the 25th installment in the James Bond series. Price = $700,007
- You and three guests will travel in style via private jet to five of the most exclusive vacation spots in the world. Embark on a journey to the award-winning Kasbah Tamadot in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains, enjoy an escape in Italy at Lefay Resort & Spa, discover the beauty of the Northern Lights in the original Icehotel in Sweden, and zoom between the Pitons as you arrive at the spectacular Jade Mountain in Saint Lucia by helicopter. End your around-the-world adventure by returning stateside to Park City, Utah, where you’ll relax and unwind in total serenity. This Fantasy Gift is available only to Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman credit card holders. Price = $575,000
- Live for the latest drops? This is your chance for all-access to the mastermind of cool collaborations, JEFF STAPLE. You’ll head to Tokyo to meet the designer and streetwear icon for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Visit Jeff’s favorite boutiques, enjoy a private dinner with Jeff at his favorite restaurant, NARISAWA, and stay at AMAN TOKYO, a five-star hotel conveniently located near the shopping hubsof Ginza and Shibuya. Then, every collector’s dream: Throughout 2020, you’ll also receive a minimum of eight Staple collaborations, each with a signed letter of authenticity from Jeff himself, with the option to have each piece signed. Price = $110,000
If the fantasy items don’t do it for you, there is this Wireless ExpressRetro Mini Bling Boombox w/ LED Dancing Speaker. The metro mini boombox features Bluetooth capabilities, LED stereo speakers, Wood panel with all-over crystals embellishment. Price = $80.
But all I really want for Christmas is at least one like for this post…
