16/12/2011 Fantastic Christmas gift ideas from Neiman Marcus
From bespoke, $1m ‘dancing fountains’ created for you by the company that supplies The Bellagio in Las Vegas, to a special-edition Ferrari FF, the imagination of the legendary US store at Christmas time knows no bounds.
A more reasonable $125,000 buys out-of-the-box intellectual credibility from Assouline, the New York City-based publishing house. Not only will it supply 250 books from its collection, it will fit out your designated library in a tasteful ‘house style’ that includes all necessary shelving, as well as custom carpeting, objets d'art and skilfully framed prints.
For flower lovers, JetWay Private Air will leave a Gulfstream G-IV at your and your friends’ disposal to embark on a horticultural transatlantic trip of a lifetime. Starting at Merges in Switzerland for The Tulip Festival, the tour takes in Athens’ Kifissia Flower Show, the Altera Rosa Festival in Avignon, and finishes in London at the world-famous Chelsea Flower Show. With a fair number of deluxe spas, 5* hotels and world-class restaurants along the way, of course. Cost: $420,000 for you, and up to nine friends.
And for the more adventurous and speed-loving, the catalogue includes a Neiman Marcus-Edition Hacker-Craft Speedboat - all 27 foot of it in solid mahogany for $250,000 – and a ‘Ferrari FF, bespoke for Neiman Marcus’. For the latter, $395,000 buys you one of the world’s finest four-seaters, finished in a unique exterior colour, ‘Grigio Caldo’.
