Neiman Marcus’ multimillion-dollar Christmas list is back, and it’s more extravagant than ever.
The retailer has released its 2018 Christmas Book, an annual collection of suggested gifts from the luxury department store.
One major highlight of the Christmas Book is its “Fantasy Gifts” section, which offers billionaires who have everything the chance to buy one-of-a-kind luxury items, travel packages, and experiences that cost thousands – and even millions – of dollars.
Neiman Marcus is careful to highlight its philanthropic efforts alongside the decadence. Between $US10,000 and $US50,000 of every Fantasy Gift purchase is donated to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation, which funds art programs across the United States.
