In the good ole’ days, all we wanted for Christmas were our two front teeth. But this year, thanks to luxury retailing Mother Ship Neiman Marcus, you can take that simple wish a few steps further. Ok, maybe a lot of steps.

Yesterday at the Dallas Contemporary, the Dallas-based luxury retailing legend unveiled its 2011 Christmas Book. And while every edition is filled with fabulous gifts galore, the highlight is always the infamous His & Hers gift. From airplanes to hot air balloons to robots, this item is always the one thing that people talk about – and 2011 is no different.

For those of you who have just about everything, have you ever considered His & Hers dancing fountains? And not just any fountain, this over-the-top aquatic marvel is produced by WET, the same company responsible for the dancing fountains in front of the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Can you imagine what your neighbors would say? And because you’re dying to know, the cost is a cool $1 million.

For those of you on a budget, the 2011 Christmas Book also offers an International Flower Show Tour arranged by JetWay Private Air ($420,000), a Hacker-Craft speedboat ($250,000), a Dream Folly Fantasy (described by a launch party attendee as “The Ultimate Girl Cave”) which is a custom Yurt inspired by the 1960s TV show I Dream of Jeannie installed at your estate ($75,000), a Tom Burr Table-Tennis table ($45,000), or a Johnnie Walker Private Scotch Tasting ($5,000).

And car enthusiasts always know there’s a haute set of wheels included in each year’s Book – this time it’s the 2012 Ferrari FF, bespoke for Neiman Marcus of course. And don’t worry, the $395,000 price tag also includes a set of luggage that matches the car’s soft-touch semi-aniline leather. How else would you travel?

A notable change this year that we love – a charitable connection. Eight of the nine 2011 Fantasy Gifts have a charity donation built into the price.

All that said, as of today, there are only 67 shopping days remaining until Christmas. So have your Black Amex close by and check out the 2011 Neiman Marcus Christmas Book online at

Happy Shopping!
