Fantasy Christmas Gifts

When you were young, you may have paged through toy catalogs, compiling the perfect wish list for Santa. Even though you’re older, there’s no reason to stop dreaming.

To get those fantasies churning, click ahead and take a peek at this year’s Neiman Marcus Christmas Book.

The catalog was first published in 1926 as a 16-page booklet intended for its best customers. Each year since, it has helped set the bar for luxury holiday gifts.

This year’s edition reflects more somber times and includes less pricey items. Keeping in mind that even the well-heeled may be shunning unnecessary items, the gifts selected focus most heavily providing their recipients with enjoyable experiences.
