While Neiman Marcus hasn’t ever been known to offer Black Friday bargains, the luxury retailer certainly does know how to celebrate the holidays in style. And so we look forward to the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book every year. Even if we can’t really afford much of anything it offers, daydreaming of heated diamond-studded bird houses, private islands in equatorial nations you’ve never heard of, and limited edition sports cars is a venerable holiday tradition.
This year, the book includes the “Forevermark Diamond Experience” which includes a trip to DeBeers’ London headquarters, a cruise off the Namibian coast, tours of diamond sorting houses, and your very own rough cut diamond that will be cut and polished to your specifications before jewelry designer Maria Canale designs a ring around it for you, all for a mere $1,850,000.
There are a few more affordable items in the book for us lesser mortals – check out the UGG slippers on page 38 for $130, as well as the “Irresistible Little Numbers” section beginning on page 52 for items priced under $100. The PDF version of the Christmas Book also includes a promo code for free shipping good through December 16th. (Code: SURPRISE)
