Yes, it’s that time of year again. You can now officially start your holiday shopping. The somewhat anachronistic yet always entertaining Neiman Marcus Holiday Book, now in its 84th edition, was released yesterday.
As WWD noted today, for the second year in a row, almost half the items in the catalog are less than $250, with 63 ringing in at $100 or less. But don’t worry—the ridiculous, over-the-top fantasy items that we’ve come to expect every year are still there.
For starters, there is a $7,500 gourd ukulele made by Danny Ferrington, who crafts handmade instruments for the likes of Keith Richards, Elvis Costello, and, uh, Tony Blair. Or for a mere $125,000 you can snag an Avion tequila party. Celeb event planner Colin Cowie will style and plan the event and Todd English will cook for you and 75 of your friends. (No mention of whether they will also provide a home big enough to fit 75 people.)
