Maybe you’re one of those amazing people who has all their holiday shopping done by Halloween. I, for one, am not, but if there’s one thing that will put me in the holiday spirit, it’s the fabulous Neiman Marcus Catalogue. Mine just arrived and, if possible, it looks more dazzling than ever.
I probably won’t find a Cobalt Valkyrie-X private plane in rose gold under my Christmas tree this year, but I know plenty of people who would swoon at the chance to spend a day at private quarterback camp with Joe Montana. The Picard Table Tennis set (reclaimed hardwood with a leather net) is enough to give any play room a facelift, let alone inspire your backhand. And the fashions…well, the winter wear is so luscious I kind of wish we had a few days of snow here in Beverly Hills just to wear those beautiful coats and feel the pleasure of all that cozy warmth.
Whether you shop NM or elsewhere, this year’s top gifts are likely to include plenty of drones, personal robots, and virtual reality systems. You can rent a private island, fund a scholarship, rescue an animal, and support your local artist. You can also put your gift dollars to work protecting and saving the lives of children by purchasing through the UNICEF catalogue.
