The luxury brand has released its wish list of the “world’s most imaginative gifts” and, well, they ain’t cheap.
Some say the gift of travel is the best gift of all. Others say Christmas is the spirit of giving. If you share in either of these views, you’ll be happy to learn that Neiman Marcus has released a wishlist of a few travel experiences will make you say, “Wow!” This reaction could come because of the quality of the adventure(s), but also because of the…cost of the adventure(s). But luckily, they are also (somewhat) for a good cause. A few travel notable gifts on our wishlist:
“Discover India, Nepal, Bhutan, and the Maldives”
A 32-day trip for up to four people, this exploration of the aforementioned destinations includes travel by private jet, private safari, nights in multiple five-star hotels, meetings with wellness gurus, helicopter tours, and yacht rides. Damn! Santa, I’ve been so good!
“Experience All Four Tennis Majors as a VIP Guest of Sloane Stephens”
Admission to this trip (for you and a guest) includes an extended hangout session with 2017 U.S. Open Champion, Sloane Stephens and her close friends and family in a VIP box for each of the four Tennis Majors. You can expect to spend several nights in “player-only” hotels as part of the package as you travel from Paris to London to New York and Melbourne for the events. Stephens will also give guests autographed memorabilia and tennis gear. She’ll also host a 45-minute hitting session with you before each event. In addition, $30,000 of the experience will go to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation, which helps provide enriching arts experiences to youth.
“Custom Candy Bar + One Million Pieces of Sugarfina Candy”
For all you sweet tooths out there, this is a dream. For up to three years, this package grants you custom Sugarfina candy deliveries, as well as a trip to the Italian Riviera that includes a stay at the Belmond Hotel Splendido and a private tour of the Sugarfina factory by company founders Rosie O’Neill and Josh Resnick. Also $10,000 of the trip will go to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation. Oh, by the way, the amount of candy over three years adds up to one million. That’s right, one million pieces of candy.
“Fulfill Your Fantasy of Becoming a Secret Agent”
The name’s Bond. James Bond. Or Jane Bond. Or, actually, whatever your name actually is. The purchase of this trip, titled the “Secret Agent Experience” kicks off with you and four others flying to Las Vegas in a private jet. You’re welcomed by a “mysterious man in a tux who will hand over an envelope containing their assigned mission profile,” according to the site. From there, you’ll enjoy a three-day adventure that involves jumping out of planes, combatant diving, and sports cars. You’ll be resting up at the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas and $25,000 of the package will go to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation.
Here’s hoping you are beloved by some really wealthy gift givers this season!
