10 Things: Best of Fantasy Gifts

When it comes to gifts, we all have our fantasies: to be a rock star or a rajah, to experience the ultimate in transportation or travel, to unwrap something jaw-dropping, eye-popping, and one-of-a-kind.

Fortunately, that’s our specialty. Since 1960, when Stanley Marcus challenged his executives to come up with unexpected gifts for the holidays, Neiman Marcus has been capturing imaginations (and media attention) with our Fantasy Gifts. Since this time of year makes us nostalgic, let’s take a trip down memory lane and revisit a few of our favorite Fantasy Gifts.
