Each year, New York retailer Neiman Marcus offers some over-the-top "fantasy gifts" as part of its annual Christmas Book. Take a look at this year's pricey offerings:
Ultimate Outdoor Entertainment System ($1.5 million) -- A true audio and videophile’s dream, you click a button and your television emerges from its discreet, underground cache, telescoping upward and unfolding to reveal its mega 201-inch C SEED screen. The accompanying speakers, developed by CAT-California Audio Technology, Inc., use the most advanced marine-grade components specifically developed for super yachts.
Jeff Koons' DomPérignonBalloon Venus ($20,000) -- Designed in celebration of the Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2003, this figurine is based on one of the latest works from artist Jeff Koons' Antiquity series called Balloon Venus.
The Glass House Experience ($30,000) -- You and a very lucky guest get to experience an overnight stay in the New Canaan, Conn., weekend residence of world-renowned architect and art patron Philip Johnson. Wander among the 14 architectural structures, study his world-class modern painting and sculpture collection, visit the private library and stroll through the 49 acres of landscaped grounds. Up to 10 of your nearest and dearest will be invited to join you at Johnson’s table for a locally sourced, multicourse culinary experience.
Forevermark Ultimate Diamond Experience ($1.85 million) -- As the owner of this 25-carat rough Forevermark diamond, you’ll travel deep into the heart of Africa to discover where your stone began its journey more than one billion years ago. After your trip, you’ll meet with New York jewelry designer Maria Canale to design the ring that will exhibit your jewel.
Ciclotte ($11,000) -- A modern spin on the exercise bicycle, the Ciclotte comes with carbon-fiber handles and offers 12 levels of resistance. Itslarge wheel is a nod to the unicycles of the late 1800s.
Indian Larry's "Wild Child" Motorcycle ($80,000) -- Handbuilt in Brooklyn for the Discovery Channel “Biker Build-Off” series, “Wild Child” is considered by many to be the pinnacle of Indian Larry’s artistic achievements. It features his signature dished tank, root beer metal flake paint, twisted down tube frame and a unique engine with a shovelhead front cylinder, panhead rear and jockey shift.
Bespoke Global Falconry Companion ($150,000) -- Includes a portable mew and matching custom trunk, 20-karat gold-plated perch, hand-carved stands, leather perch scale, and hand-sewn glove, anklet and exotic-skin hoods by Ken Hooke, the world’s preeminent falconry hood maker.
The Neiman Marcus 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante ($344,500) -- One of only 10 in the world, this Vanquish Volante sports a 100 percent carbon fiber shell -- the first in Aston Martin's history -- and a new, naturally-aspirated 6.0-liter, V-12 engine capable of 180 mph.
