Neiman Marcus Christmas Book delivers lavish gift ideas
(REUTERS) - The super rich have one less thing to worry about, now that Neiman Marcus released its holiday catalog on Tuesday with gift suggestions topping US$1 million (S$1.25 million).
His & Hers 2013, the most extravagant selection in this year's Christmas Book, is an outdoor entertainment system - a giant-screen television that emerges from an underground storage place, speakers and hundreds of movies - listed at US$1.5 million.
At one-tenth of that price, a falconry companion set features a gold-plated perch, exotic skin falcon hoods, along with outdoor furniture, lead crystal decanters and cigars. The set, no bird included, sells for US$150,000.
The Houston-based luxury store also offers a "Diamond Experience," which, at US$1.85 million, includes a 25-carat rough diamond, a trip to the London offices of De Beers diamond specialists, a meeting with a craftsman to cut and polish the gem, a session with a jewelry designer to create its setting, and a visit to Africa, where the stone was mined.
