Here are the most absurdly expensive gifts on Neiman Marcus’ Xmas guide for the ultra wealthy

Neiman Marcus’ multi-million-dollar Christmas list is back — and it’s as opulent as ever.

The retailer has released its 2017 Christmas Book, an annual collection of suggested gifts from the storied department store.

One major highlight of the Christmas Book is its “Fantasy Gifts” section, which offers billionaires who have everything the chance to buy one-of-a-kind luxury items, travel packages, and experiences that cost thousands — and even millions — of dollars.

Neiman Marcus is careful to highlight its philanthropic efforts alongside the decadence. A portion of every Fantasy Gift purchase is donated to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation, which funds art programs across the US.

Here’s what’s on the Fantasy Gifts list in 2017.
