Luxury Christmas Gifts 2011

Print Friendly

I always chuckle when hearing about the high-end gifts that retailers offer each year at Christmastime, so I thought I would share what this holiday season brings. All products are from Neiman Marcus’ famous Christmas catalog, where luxury has no bounds.For the flower enthusiast and traveler, JetWay airlines will fly you and 9 guests on an international flower show tour. The destinations on the tour include Athens, France, Switzerland, and London and costs $420,000.If you are a fan of the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas’ fountains like I am, and you have an extra $1,000,000 (yes that is one million dollars!), Wet will create a miniature version of their fountains using two robotic nozzles.

Boat aficionados will appreciate the luxury that was built into a 27’ solid mahogany Hacker-Craft speedboat. $250,000 buys you a boat that includes 15 coats of hand-brushed varnish, a bow gleaming in 23-karat gold leafing, underwater lighting, and a 425 horsepower engine. It took 1,400 hours of craftsmanship to build this beauty. Of course, all the amenities on the inside are as luxurious.

My mother was an avid reader and would have loved Neiman Marcus’ $125,000 custom built library. In addition to the custom carpeting and artwork, she could have selected 250 current or vintage books of her choosing to complete the library.

And for the poor-rich, you can get by with only spending $5,000 on a whiskey tasting of Johnnie Walker Scotch. It also includes a Scottish bagpiper and a whiskey connoisseur sharing the characteristics and history of whiskey.

For those of us whose budget is a bit smaller, consider giving stylish ornaments as gifts. Christmas Ornaments.com offers over 2200 unique ornaments in a variety of styles, colors, materials, and price range. Our newly re-designed site also allows you to search for ornaments by country of origin and brand.

One of my favorite ornaments is our college hoody sweatshirt ornament which would be popular for students from major colleges. This can be displayed on one of our ornament stands for year-round use. Here is the ornament on our sister site, Christmas Ornaments.com for the University of Wisconsin.
