It's that time of year! The Neiman Marcus Christmas catalog is out and for those of you not familiar, it's the high-end catalog that most of us can not afford.

Last year, for  $30,000 you could get a walk-on role to Annie: The Musical on Broadway. This year, it's the Ultimate Diamond Experience.  As the owner of a 25-carat rough Forevermark diamond, you’ll travel deep to Africa to discover where your stone began its journey more than one billion years ago. This once-in-a-lifetime adventure starts with a trip to the De Beers headquarters in London. Once there, you’ll receive your diamond in its rough and uncut form, name your diamond, learn about the unique inscription it will receive, and meet the master craftsman who will hand-cut and polish it to perfection. The price? Only $1,850,000

The His and Her Gift this year is an Outdoor Entertainment Experience. You click a button and your television emerges from an underground hiding place, telescoping upward and unfolding to reveal a mega 201" screen. There are speakers, subwoofers, and amplifiers,a DirecTV satellite and DVD system, and a built-in movie package featuring up to 300 movies and concerts  An d no more arguments about the remote. Two mini iPads serve as the remotes; one for him and one for her. That's $1.5 million

This will be the 87th edition of the Christmas Book and in case you're wondering if there's anything the average guy or gal can afford...they do have a $12 mug.
