The Divining Wand

Discovering authors beyond their pages…


October 19, 2009 By: larramiefg Category: Uncategorized

After six consecutive Mondays of presenting new releases or debut novels, there is a lull in the flurry of publication…at least for our authors. Yet what perfect timing since it allows this Fairy Godmother to carry on a tradition that began on my former blog — Seize a Daisy — and present this year’s The Christmas Book by Neiman Marcus.

The luxury, Dallas-based retailer, known for offering its customers, the ultimate in cutting-edge, dream-fulfilling gifts, has done it again by providing lush, high-quality items for everyone’s wish list. For example there’s a His and Hers Icon A5 Sports Aircraft, a customized Cupcake Car, and a sustainable design art chandelier. This year’s featured car is the 2010 Jaguar XJL Supercharged Neiman Marcus Edition. Hmm, a but too much even for a wish list? Well the store appears to have taken the economy into account and more than 40% of the gifts are under $250.

When first published in 1926 as a 16-page booklet, the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book was initially intended as a Christmas card for the store’s best customers. Building on that tradition through the years, the book has managed to maintain its personal touch while evolving into a legendary holiday source for unique and magical gifts.

Indulge in a bit of daydreaming and browse through The Christmas Book…it’s eco-friendly!

  1. Love, love, love the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book! I moved a few weeks ago, and I kid you not, among the Christmas cookbooks and story books and books in general, I found like a 1987 one. And packed it up and moved it. My favorite part is the gourmet food. 🙂

  2. Well, I just saw a pair of boots I can’t live without….
