The Neiman Marcus Christmas Book never disappoints when it comes to gifts that are both luxurious and ludicrous. The guide is filled with everything from high-quality, designer throw blankets to blinged-out karaoke microphones. Nevertheless, it’s a blast to browse, and GOBankingRates picked out the 10 craziest (and crazy expensive) items featured.
Kid’s BMW X5: $430
One day they’re on the bottle, and the next day they’re on the Bimmer. Give your toddler the keys to this officially licensed white BMW X5 with leather seats and a powerful 12 volt battery. To make your first car look even more pathetic, this toddler-sized luxury vehicle also comes with an MP3 player, and Bluetooth capabilities so they can play CoComelon all the way to the bank.

Jeff Koons “Balloon Dog (Blue), 2021”: $36,000
Seems like designer dogs are getting more expensive by the day. The high price tag is partly due to the porcelain art piece being limited edition. Only 799 were produced. Jeff Koons explains that the balloon design represents both childhood innocence and the jaded feelings that follow. “It’s a very optimistic piece; it’s like a balloon that a clown would twist for you at a birthday party. But at the same time, it’s a Trojan horse…When you move, the abstraction takes place; nothing happens without you; it needs you.”
David Yurman 8.5mm Angelika Bracelet: $11,000
Sculptor-turned-jeweler David Yurman has rolled out this 18-karat yellow gold band that costs more than most people spend on a decade’s worth of Christmas gifts. This bracelet’s Pavé diamonds are hand-set, and it holds a 1.12 total carat weight.
Jonathan Adler Botanist Backgammon Set: $395
For the person who can’t get enough of bugs and backgammon, there’s finally something to hold their attention. The board is rendered in high-gloss couture lacquer and makes for a lovely conversation piece as well.

These earrings are bound to catch everyone’s eye, as they’re worth more than the average American’s salary. The design features 14 round graduating single prong diamonds, and has a total carat weight of 8.0.

Hermes Promenade au Faubourg Mug: $145
