Every year, Neiman Marcus puts out a Christmas catalog that includes some ridiculously expensive gifts, and this year’s edition came out yesterday. With the economy as wonderful as it is today, these items are more fantastical than ridiculous, but at the end of the day…they’re just fun to look at right?!?!?! My favorite from the catalog are as follows:
The dancing fountain: You know that fountain outside the Bellagio in Vegas? Well for a small price of a million dollars, you can put that sucker in your backyard and host the neighborhood BBQ!! Best part of the fountain? For an additional $500,000 you can have the same “water show choreographer” that the Bellagio uses!
International Flower Show Tour: Who doesn’t want to spend $420,000 so they can take 9 of their friends to tour Europe’s best of show in….FLOWERS. I’m not even sure what to say about that.
Luxury Yurt: Wait…a what?!?! Yea, apparently it’s a massive tent you can have in your backyard, filled with everything an Arabian King could dream of mixed with the essence of the “I Dream of Jeannie” magical auro. Basically, if you’re into tents, pillows, candles, incense and all things plush and you have $75,000 to spare…it’s allllllllll yours!!!
Tom Burr Ping Pong Table: Not your average table, and don’t even think about playing beer pong on this sucker (although it seems to be the IDEAL table for it). This fine piece of “art” isn’t meant to be played upon, but to be displayed in your home for it’s fine finish in…black rubber…$45,000 worth of black rubber!
