“His & Hers” 2013 – Ultimate Outdoor Entertainment System, $1,500,000

Ultimate Outdoor Entertainment System

An outdoor television that emerges from its discreet, underground cache, telescoping upward and unfolding to reveal its mega 201″ C SEED screen. The system includes technologically advanced speakers, subwoofers and amplifiers that project unparalleled sound, a DirecTV® satellite and DVD management system, and a built-in movie package featuring up to 300 movies and concerts. Plus, that never-ending argument over who controls the remote is no longer an issue. Two Apple® mini iPadsTM serve as the remotes; one for him and one for her.

With every Ultimate Outdoor Entertainment System purchase, NM will donate $10,000 to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation.

Bespoke Global Falconry Companion, $150,000

Bespoke Global Falconry Companion

Consider yourself lucky to take part in an ancient sport once reserved for nobles of Medieval Europe, the Middle East, and the Mongolian Empire. The falconry comes with a portable mew and matching custom trunk, a 20-karat gold-plated perch, hand-carved stands, leather perch scale, and hand-sewn glove, anklet, and exotic-skin hoods by Ken Hooke, the world’s preeminent falconry hood maker. Next, the furniture: Chatwin chairs and a foldout table by Richard Wrightman. Imagine unfolding the beautiful, handmade backgammon board from Alexandra Llewellyn, whilst pouring yourself a drink from one of the lead crystal decanters, and smoking your favorite cigar, using your matching cigar cutter by David Linley.

With every Bespoke Global Falconry Companion purchase, NM will donate $1,500 to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation.

Ciclotte, $11,000

Ciclotte

This modern spin on the exercise bicycle will ensure it never gets relegated to the basement. A blend of amazing form and state-of-the-art function, the Ciclotte’s large wheel is a nod to the unicycles of the late 1800s, but that’s where the design reminiscing ends. This piece is a study in the power—and beauty—of simplicity. Good looks aside, its dynamic design is rivaled only by its effortless performance. Sitting astride your cycle, you adjust the angle of the carbon-fiber handles, choose from one of 12 levels of resistance, engage the pedals, and ride your way to a fitter, healthier you.

With every Ciclotte purchase, NM will donate $1,000 to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation.

Forevermark Ultimate Diamond Experience, $1,850,000

Forevermark Ultimate Diamond Experience

Every extraordinary gem has a history, but rare is the opportunity to trace its provenance. This once-in-a-lifetime adventure starts with a trip to the De Beers headquarters in London. You’ll receive your 25-carat rough and uncut Forevermark® diamond, learn about the unique inscription it will receive, and meet the master craftsman who will hand-cut and polish it to perfection. A private tour of The Crown Jewels and dinner with De Beers CEO Philippe Mellier and Forevermark CEO Stephen Lussier in the Tower of London follow. Your journey continues on a vessel off Namibia’s coast, where your diamond was first discovered. You’ll then explore rough-diamond sorting houses and a children’s community project, where the population benefits from Forevermark’s responsible sourcing of diamonds. Lastly, meet with New York jewelry designer Maria Canale in the US to design the ring that will exhibit your exceptional diamond.

With the purchase of the Forevermark Ultimate Diamond Experience, NM will donate $10,000 to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation.

The Glass house Experience, $30,000

The Glass House

For the first time ever, you and a very lucky guest get to experience an overnight stay in the New Canaan, Connecticut, weekend residence of world-renowned architect and art patron, Philip Johnson. Get up-close-and-personal access to the life and style of one of the twentieth century’s most revered visionaries as you wander among the 14 architectural structures, study his world-class modern painting and sculpture collection, visit the private library, and stroll through the 49 acres of bucolic grounds. Up to ten of your nearest and dearest will join you at Philip Johnson’s table for a locally sourced, multicourse culinary experience.
All of the proceeds of this purchase will go toward the nonprofit National Trust for Historic Preservation, which supports Club Glass House, a program that provides educational tours to children.

Indian Larry’s “Wild Child” Motorcycle, $750,000

Indian Larry Wild Child

Handbuilt in Brooklyn, New York, for the Discovery Channel “Biker Build-Off” series, “Wild Child” is considered the pinnacle of Indian Larry’s artistic achievements. It features his signature-dished tank, root beer metal flake paint, twisted down tube frame, and a truly unique engine with a shovelhead front cylinder, panhead rear, and jockey shift. An open belt drive is emblazoned with the “Wild Child” name. Brass accents and a handcarved leather seat complete the picture of this motorized masterpiece. A second gift offered by Indian Larry, “Question Everything”, $80,000 (available online), is modeled after Indian Larry’s famous “Daddy O.”

With the purchase of “Wild Child,” NM will donate $7,000 to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation.

Jeff Koon’s Dom Pérignon Balloon Venus, $20,000

Balloon Venus

The limited edition Dom Pérignon’s Balloon Venus is playful, impactful, and signature Jeff Koons. Designed in celebration of the Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2003, this incarnation is based on one of the latest works from Koons’s Antiquity series called Balloon Venus (a modern riff on the Venus of Willendorf, which dates back to approximately 23,000 B.C.).

With every Dom Pérignon’s Balloon Venus purchase, NM will donate $1,000 to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation.

The Neiman Marcus 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante, $344,500

Aston Martin Vanquish Volante

With its elegant profile and confident stance, your Neiman Marcus 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante is one of only 10 in the world. Beneath its NM Exclusive Seychelles Blue exterior exists the culmination of a century of technological and engineering prowess. Handbuilt in Gaydon, England, your Vanquish Volante sports a 100% carbon fiber shell—the first ever in Aston Martin’s history—allowing for a much lighter car with greater torsional and structural rigidity, while enhancing safety, performance, and handling. A new, naturally aspirated 6.0-liter, V-12 engine produces some 565 horsepower and is tuned to deliver 457 pound-feet of torque. The engine sends the drive strictly to the rear wheels via a six-speed Touchtronic 2 automatic transmission, making acceleration smooth, steady, and responsive. Like a certain secret agent, you have a penchant for beautiful British automobiles—and a taste for adventure.

With every purchase of the Neiman Marcus 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante, NM will donate $3,000 to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation.

Stumbled upon this while looking for a once-in-a-lifetime gift for my father. Lovely ideas, but out of my price range and impractical. He is dying of advanced prostate cancer and this is his last Christmas. I will keep looking...

One wise man said at a fundraiser I attended years ago .” It is not giving unless it hurts” I personally don’t think giving should be painful , but when I came across Neiman Marcus Christmas Book Fantasy Gifts I was a bit disappointed. I think Neiman Marcus is a great store , but you really have to reevaluate percentage of the gift cost going to charity. If you are in a giving spirit then give , but if I am spending 1. 5 Million on an "Ultimate Outdoor Entertainment Set" I think 10 thousand dollars donation is really low . That’s less than 1% and I think there is enough margin to give 100 K to charity from 1.5 MM sale and that would make people feel a lot better spending money in Neiman.

There's a reason why they are called fantasy gifts because that is their real nature. They are only for rich people. The good thing about this is that, for every purchase they give out sums of money to charity. They could increase the amount of the donation though considering the price of their luxury gifts.
