Should we just send Santa the new Neiman Marcus “Christmas Book” with a note that says: “Dear Santa, just send us one of each?”
Yes, the book is out and shoppers are champing at the bit. There’s everything from a Jorge Adeler $7,960 yellow gold and leather bracelet with an Alexander the Great coin for him to The Row’s “Lunch Bag” small handbag for her ($19,500) to his and her “Barocco” robes for them from Versace ($595-$995), complete with boxing gloves ($3,275) and punching bag ($1,550). Not to mention plenty of stocking stuffers and kids’ stuff.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, you say, but what about the fantasy gifts? That’s what gets the old salivary glands juicing.
They include everything from behind-the-scenes at Boucheron ($695,000) to creating a doghouse for your pet pooch with Rockstar Puppy and actress Denise Richards ($70,000-plus). But the one that grabbed us was the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera designed by 007 himself, Craig, Daniel Craig. The car is one of seven, natch, an inky blue custom vehicle with a twin turbo 5.2 liter V12 engine. It’s accompanied by an equally limited edition all-platinum Seamaster Diver 300M Omega watch with unique case back and two tickets to the world premiere of the new James Bond film, “No Time To Die,” in theaters April 8.
The price? A clever $700,007. Throw in Craig, and we’re there.
