The 2014 Neiman Marcus Christmas Book Is Here And, Yes, There's a Quadski

Get ready to disappoint your loved ones by not buying them one.

We start getting loads of press releases about holiday products starting in September, but there's only one for which we wait with baited breath: the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book.

The reason for this is quite simple: It is batsh*t crazy. Past offerings have included the Versailles of chicken coops ($100,000) and a customizable fountain ($1 million). The 2014 book is here, and while it stays below the $500,000 mark -- a press release says over 40 percent of the book is under $250 -- there's still some insane gift ideas in here.

For the couple who has everything, you could buy a His & Hers Vilebrequin Quadski, which, for those who don't know, is a land/water jetski. (If it makes a difference, it only takes five seconds to convert!) Also on offer is a Vanity Fair Academy Awards Experience at $425,000, which includes styling and an invite to the Vanity Fair party, and a 100th Anniversary Neiman Marcus Limited-Edition Maserati Ghibli S Q4 at $95,000.

Shockingly, those aren't the most expensive options. That honor goes to the House of Creed Custom Fragrance and Trip (to Paris), which rings in at $475,000. The cheapest option: a Molton Brown Bubble Bath Bauble at $15. Hey, it's no Quadski, but it'll do.
