Take a look at 2019's nine Fantasy Gift offerings, if you want to know what the uber-rich have on their holiday lists. We follow with a few of the most over-the-top offerings from the last few years.
1. 007 Aston Martin designed by Daniel Craig
For Christmas 2019, give the gift of Bond with a 007 Aston Martin designed by Bond, James Bond himself, Daniel Craig.
This particular Aston Martin is a super limited edition — only seven were made (tying in with 007 theme), they're sleek inky-blue in color, and they have a twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 engine.
If that isn't enough to get your engine purring, each car comes with a limited edition platinum Seamaster Diver 300M Omega timepiece.
You'll definitely need it, because you and a guest will want to be rolling up on time when you attend the world premiere of the 25th James Bond film, No Time to Die.
2. Experience fashion week like an insider
Treat your fashionista friend to the trip of a lifetime this holiday season. With this gift, the two of you will be flown to New York, where you’ll join a Neiman Marcus insider to tour fashion week like a real VIP.
You’ll get front row tickets to the most high-profile shows, then hang out backstage with the likes of superstar designers Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs.
And you won’t have to worry about what to wear. Not only will you take home an outfit from each designer, but also — for the entire week — you’ll be pampered by a personal hair stylist, a makeup artist and a fashion stylist.
3. Star in an Instagram video with Makeup by Mario
Ready to get #instaglam? If you've been good this year, Santa can gift you an hour in the chair of legendary makeup artist Mario Dedicanovic, whose client list boasts Chrissy Teigen, Kim Kardashian West and Ariana Grande.
You’ll get the all-star treatment and your very own beauty transformation.
Hope you aren't camera shy, because your hour in Mario’s coveted beauty chair will be recorded from start to finish, and shared with his 7 million Instagram followers.
The fun doesn’t end there: You’ll also get the chance to attend one of Dedicanovic's master classes, have a meet-and-greet, and take home the products used during your glam session.
4. Behind the scenes at Boucheron
Give the gift of sparkle — in the City of Lights. This fantasy gift includes a meeting with Claire Choisne, the creative director of the iconic luxury jewelry brand Maison Boucheron in Paris.
You'll get a behind-the-scenes peek at the house's workshops and design studios, and see the craftsmanship that goes into the creation of each piece.
For accommodations, you'll be among the first guests to stay at the recently renovated Le 26, Boucheron's Place Vendome apartment, formally known as Hotel de Noce.
As a souvenir, you'll take home an exquisite Perle Au Tresor — a stunning jewel case that opens to reveal a necklace, bracelet and two brooches. Tres chic.
5. Pet Paradise with Rockstar Puppy and Denise Richards
Your dogs are family, so make sure Santa is extra good to your poochies this year.
Your beloved pup will feel like a king or queen in a one-of-a-kind pet mansion designed and built by Rockstar Puppy in collaboration with actress Denise Richards.
This isn’t your average scratching post and dog bed from Petco. With Rockstar Puppy, you can give your dog the playhouse that will make Max or Bella the talk of the dog park.
With Rockstar Puppy, you get to be the architect behind your furry friend's dream home. You can build your dog a nine-bedroom castle, a Brooklyn brownstone or a Cape Cod cottage.
There’s never been a better way to say, “I ruff you.”
6. Create a couture pair of shoes with Christian Louboutin
Get your passport ready, because this season Neiman Marcus is flying you and a guest to Paris to meet with legendary shoe designer Christian Louboutin.
You'll get to spend the day shopping at M. Louboutin's favorite stores, including the original Christian Louboutin boutique on Rue Jean Jacques Rousseau, where you'll get to pick five of your favorite pairs from the newest collection.
You'll also get to visit the Christian Louboutin studio, where you'll work with a group of designers to create your one-of-a-kind pair of red-bottom shoes.
After you bid Paris au revoir, your shoes and a sketch of your design (created and signed by Christian Louboutin himself) will be waiting for you at home.
7. Hang out in Tokyo with Jeff Staple
The sneaker head in your family will go gaga for this gift.
The lucky recipient will head to Tokyo for the chance to kick it with streetwear mogul and sneaker mastermind Jeff Staple. The giftee will spend a week visiting Staple's favorite boutiques, and have dinner at his favorite restaurant, the Michelin-starred Narisawa.
The package includes full accommodations at Aman Tokyo, a five-star hotel in the heart of Tokyo's trendy Ginza and Shibuya neighborhood.
The fun doesn't stop there. Once home, the person getting this gift will have to make space in their shoe collection, because throughout 2020 a minimum of eight pairs of shoes from Staple's latest collaborations will arrive — with letters of authenticity for showing off to friends.
8. A taste of Italy
The foodie in your family will experience an epic culinary adventure with this ultra-exclusive taste of Italy.
This trip for two will see you both on a flight to beautiful Modena, where you'll start your journey at the Pastificio Di Martino factory. You'll learn the delicate art of pasta making from third-generation pasta maker Giuseppe Di Martino.
Once you're stuffed full of carbs, you'll learn more tricks of the trade when you take a cooking lesson with legendary Chef Massimo Bottura. You'll end the night wining and dining at Bottura's Michelin three-star restaurant, Osteria Francescana.
The rest of the trip will be spent taking guided tours of the Emilia Romagna region, known as Italy's Motor Valley for its sports car culture.
9. A trip around the world
Can't make up your mind where to spend your next big vacation? You don't have to with this gift, which takes you and three guests on a private jet to five different luxury accommodations around the globe.
You'll spend three nights in each location, starting at the Kasbah Tamadot in Marrakech, Morocco.
After that, you'll be off to the luxurious Lefay Resort and Spa in Dolomiti, Italy, to get pampered — before you chart off to the original Icehotel in Sweden.
Next, you'll laze around an infinity pool at your own private accommodation on the Pitons in St. Lucia, West Indies. After you've taken in the breathtaking sights of the island's Jade Mountain, you'll end your globetrotting with a stay in Utah, at The Lodge at Blue Sky.
10. Explore South Asia
From the 2018 catalog. This gift offered the recipient and three guests the chance of a lifetime to explore places in India, Nepal, Bhutan and the Maldives that tourists don't often see.
The group would be escorted by private jet to luxurious five-star hotels, secluded lodges and chic safari tents.
They could get the chance to observe secret spots within the Taj Mahal, observe wild tigers on a private safari, and watch the sunset from a Mount Everest base camp.
This unforgettable package included one-on-one visits with yoga masters, naturopathy experts, Hindu priests and monks, as well as helicopter tours of the Himalayas (this was not meant for anyone with a fear of heights) and island cruises on a private yacht.
11. One million pieces of Sugarfina candy
From the 2018 catalog. This is a gift your dentist would have hated.
You and three guests could have traveled first-class to the Italian Riviera for the chance to feel like kids in a candy store. Literally.
You would have visited the Sugarfina factory in Genoa, to spend the day with the founders of the luxury candy brand. The package included a behind-the-scenes peek at how the candy is made, followed by a session in the labs to create your own bespoke candy flavors.
After saying ciao to Italy, you would have been mailed 1 million pieces of Sugarfina candy over a three-year period. (At least that was the plan, though Sugarfina filed for bankruptcy in September 2019 and has since been sold.)
12. A 74-foot Serenity solar yacht
Price: $7.1 million
From the 2017 catalog. If you're married to the sea, you would have fallen for this one-of-a-kind vessel by Serenity. The largest solar-paneled yacht in the world, it was 74 feet long with 1,100 feet of solar panels.
The yacht boasted three levels, four main cabins and could fit up to a dozen people, including a crew of four. The craft included a fully functional kitchen, a music and entertainment system, satellite TV and Wi-Fi.
Fashion-conscious sailors take note: This yacht came with plenty of closet space, which was a very convenient feature, since the gift also included a Neiman Marcus shopping spree.
Sounds tempting? Given the more than $7 million price tag, you definitely would have wanted to check with your financial planner first.
13. A 7.2 carat emerald
From the 2017 catalog. Ready to sparkle?
This gift would have flown you to Zambia, in southern Africa, to see the single largest producer of emeralds in the world, the Gemfield Kagem mine. You would have shadowed master jeweler Stephen Webster and watched raw emeralds get processed in the sorting house.
Then, you'd wrap up the night at the mine's private lake house, and get some rest at The Royal Livingston Hotel, because the next day you would have taken a tour of Victoria Falls.
Next, there was jetting off to London for two days. You'd spend one of them with Webster turning a massive 7.2 carat emerald into a one-of-a-kind piece to take home, along with a final sketch signed by the designer himself.
14. 'Yours and Mine' Dawn Rolls-Royces
Price: $439,625 to $445,750
From the 2017 catalog. How about not one, but two Rolls-Royces — one for you and one for a partner, sibling or friend?
This "Yours and Mine" bundle offered you and one lucky giftee the opportunity to experience the finest in Rolls-Royce craftsmanship.
Designed by the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars team in Goodwood, England, these cars were inspired by two glamorous locales: Lake Como, Italy, and Saint-Tropez, France.
The Dawn Lago di Como featured gray-and-black hand-sewn leather and a brushed aluminum dashboard. The Dawn Saint-Tropez was fitted with "seashell" leather, accented with orange and dark spice exteriors and had its dashboard and doors paneled with open-pore wood.
The two of you probably would have fought over who got which color.
15. New Year’s Eve party for 300 at the Knickerbocker
Price: $1.6 million
From the 2017 catalog. You could have thrown the New Year’s Eve party of the century in New York City’s Time Square.
This gift package would have had you and 299 guests toasting the arrival of 2019 on the rooftop of the iconic Knickerbocker Hotel, only a few feet away from the giant lighted ball that drops at midnight.
You and your guests would have enjoyed a two-night stay at the Knickerbocker — 150 premier rooms could have been yours to rent and do with as you please.
Once the private party started on Dec. 31, 2018, you and your guests would have been treated to premium cocktails, a fully catered dinner party with passed trays, and a live DJ.
16. A trip to the Grammys
From the 2016 catalog. Always dreamed of going to the Grammy Awards but can’t hold a tune to save your life?
Neiman Marcus wanted to give you and one guest the chance to see the Grammys the VIP way, vocal chops not necessary.
You would have toured backstage and watched rehearsals. You'd hobnob with stars at the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Gala, and would have headed to your front row seats for the big show.
And no worry about keeping up appearances with the likes of Beyonce and Ariana Grande. Included in the package was a chance to meet with personal stylist to the stars, Catherine Bloom.
Oh, and you would have taken home a 1959 gold-plated Gibson Les Paul guitar, signed by all the performers.
17. Cobalt Valkyrie-X private plane
Price: $1.5 million
From the 2016 catalog. Is a rose gold iPad on your Christmas list this year? How about a rose gold private plane?
This fantasy gift provided a rose gold Cobalt Valkyrie-X private plane, to fly the skies in style.
Designed by aerospace engineer and Cobalt founder David Loury, this four-seater was described as one of the fastest piston aircrafts in the world, with a 350-horsepower engine capable of reaching a speed of 230 mph. (Let's hope the recipient packed some Dramamine.)
The interior featured hand-stitched cream-colored leather, beige and taupe headlining and anthracite carpets. To top it all off, all the controls were rose gold.
Included with the gift was 24/7 technical support for two years.
18. Arch motorcycle designed by Keanu Reeves
From the 2015 catalog. How would you like to ride a motorcycle designed by Neo himself, the one and only Keanu Reeves?
With this gift, you could have not only cruised in style on your own KRGT-1 motorcycle, but also had the chance to talk bikes and take a ride with Reeves himself.
He and his business partner, Gard Hollinger, created the Arch Motorcycle Company, and the KRGT-1 was their first production bike, referred to as “the Zen of motorcycle design,” with a frame of steel and aircraft-grade billet aluminum.
After checking out the specs on your new bike, you would have taken a two-day trip with Reeves and Hollinger along the California coast.
19. Accessorize with Iris Apfel
From the 2015 catalog. This one was every fashion maven's dream come true.
Iris Apfel, now 98 years young, is a businesswoman and fashion icon, with her signature catchphrase, "More is more, less is a bore!"
Her influence on the fashion industry, as well as her eclectic haute couture style, earned her the high honor of a personal retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2005.
For $80,000, you could have learned the distinct art of accessorizing with your own Itak-embellished trunk filled with accessories curated by the style queen herself. Included with the gift was a lunch and personal styling session with Apfel at Neiman Marcus in Dallas.
20. See the edge of space with World View
Price: $90,000 per person
From the 2015 catalog. This literally out-of-this-world gift could have allowed you to experience space without the years of schooling and rigorous physical testing required of astronauts.
Your brush with becoming a real-life space racer would have started at the Miraval Resort in Tuscon, Arizona, for a behind-the-scenes look at a World View Enterprises test flight.
In part two of the trip: your own personal taste of space. You and seven friends would have experienced 360 degree views of Earth from 100,000 feet above the planet in your very own luxury pressurized capsule.
The experience would have set you back $90,000, but really, how many other people can boast that they've been to outer space?
