Holiday Wishes

By Erin

Neiman Marcus's Christmas Book is an annual guide to excess. It's rococo for the 21st century.

The book puts together fantasy ideas that range from home decor -- think backyard waterpark -- to indulgent, which is how I would categorize last year's $3.8 million membership to a Tuscan wine estate and resort. This year, the dragon topiary for a cool $35,000 would be fun, as would the $50,000 tree tent. With $2 million stashed away, we've considered creating a Gurus' rocket racing team franchise.

But all this holiday talk has had us thinking about our dream local gifts. Yeah, the Holiday Guide has some practical ideas, but in the spirit of the season, we will all blog on what we'd most like to receive this holiday season. Lavish self-care? Check. A dream dining experience? Of course. So without further ado, here's the first of our holiday wish lists.

You mentioned local gifts, and within reason. Here are 2 that I have actually experienced, way different and loads of fun:
1) VIP Dining! Chefs table at Teatro. Fabrizio is soo much fun, and is great in the kitchen. Great experience!

2) VIP Shopping! Carbon will set up a private shopping / happy hour! I actually did this with some friends, it was great! A few drinks, music, locked door private shopping and a nice discount on what we bought!
