After many decades of curating the most alluring, extravagant and personalized holiday gifts, this year is no different. In the list below you’ll find this year’s ten Fantasy Gifts, including the iconic “His & Hers” matching pair, a limited-edition car, and luxury experiences that can take you to New Orleans, Los Angeles, or France. There’s something for everyone on your Christmas list here, and the best part is that a percentage of the proceeds from the Fantasy Gifts will be donated to the The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation supporting youth arts education in communities across the country. Now, go ahead and peruse through the list, and make sure to let us know which one made your most-dreamed-about Fantasy Gift this season.


Ten Things


His & Hers

2014 Vilebrequin Quadski

These are for couples who can’t decide whether they love their personal watercraft more than their ATVs. The Vilebrequin Quadski is already one of the world’s best amphibious vehicles. But it converts from water cruiser to four-wheeler in under five seconds and accelerates up to 45 mph thanks to its 1300cc BMW engine. Add the fun Vilebrequin turtle print – yellow for her, purple for him – and what’s not to love?
