The Outrageous Gifts From Neiman Marcus's 2017 Christmas Book

Suzy Strutner

Each year, Neiman Marcus blows our minds with its Christmas Book, a catalog of wild and wonderful gifts for people who have no problem dropping a few paychecks (or a lifetime of income) on holiday goodies. 

Aside from trinkets like a $5,695 French fry purse and a $150 gold-plated Slinky, this year’s book includes 10 big-ticket Fantasy Gifts whose prices range from $8,000 to $1.6 million. The good news is that each Fantasy Gift includes some kind of donation to charity. The bad news is we likely won’t ever see any of these gifts under our tree. This year’s outrageous Fantasy Gifts include:

1 New Year's Eve party for 300 in Times Square: $1,600,000

(Neiman Marcus)

Assign 299 of your closest friends to a total of 150 rooms at The Knickerbocker hotel in Times Square for two nights. When the clock strikes 12, you'll all be at a private rooftop party with food, drinks, a DJ and a killer view of the ball drop$1,600,000 at Neiman Marcus

2 Jewelry-making trip to Zambia: $300,000

This trip for two includes a tour of Zambian emerald mines with jeweler Stephen Webster. Hang out in a local hotel, take a sightseeing excursion to Victoria Falls, then head to London and help Webster transform an emerald into a wearable piece in his studio. After a lavish dinner with Webster, you'll head home to await the delivery of your one-of-a-kind item. $300,000 at Neiman Marcus

3 Pair of Rolls-Royces: $885,375

Each of these Exclusive Rolls-Royce Dawn Drophead Coupés is "distinctly different," according to Neiman Marcus: The blue one is inspired by Lake Como, while the orange one is inspired by Saint-Tropez. You can buy them separately, but why stop at one? $439,625 (blue) and $445,750 (orange) at Neiman Marcus
