What Real Simple Editors Would Buy if Money Were No Object

While we’ve already shared our wallet-friendly gift picks from the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book, we had to also share our editors’ favorite fantasy finds from the catalog. We certainly don’t expect anyone to spend $1.5 million on us this season, but an editor can dream, can’t she?

“Practical? Not so much, but that’s what makes these red, sky-high stunners so fun! They’d spice up any LBD and because they’re so high, they’d have a slimming effect on the leg. (Santa: I’m a size 37!)”

“This high-tech carry-on would be perfect if I needed to charge my phone or tablet while waiting for a flight. Plus, it weighs itself (no more overweight fees!) and has a built-in GPS so I can try to track it down if it gets lost. This would definitely make travel a lot easier.”
