Yup. I did the math.
It’s only October but retailers are already gearing up for the holiday season. Flyers are coming out, sales are being announced, commercials are being shown. In the crazy time of holiday shopping, perhaps no store is more well-known/infamous for its holiday goodies than Neiman Marcus and its Christmas Book. Filled with novel gift ideas of trinkets and baubles, furs and cashmere, the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book also offers suggestions for those with…larger wallets. Instead of jewelry, how about a private dinner feast for 10 prepared by world famous chefs? That’ll set you back $250,000. Don’t want to gift another necktie? Consider a water-propelled jetpack for $99,500. Or the Neiman Marcus Edition McLaren 12C Spider for a cool $354,000.
Recognizing that most of us have a budget and that times are tough, the luxury retailer has partnered with discount giant Target and 24 designers from the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) to create a stylish an affordable holiday lookbook. The three-way collaboration has resulted in 50 gorgeous gifts for men, women and children, and will be on sale at Target and Neiman Marcus, both in-store and online, starting December 1st. Take a peek at some of the designs by Diane von Furstenberg, Alice + Olivia, Rodarte, Tory Burch, Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler and many more.
Which of these will you be adding to your holiday wish list??
