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?
“If I’m going to travel by helicopter, I’ll only step foot in one that’s rose gold.”
—Rachael Weiner, Senior Style & Market Editor
To buy: $1,500,000, neimanmarcus.com.
“This is the ultimate grown-up super-hero ring. It would make me feel like I could leap tall buildings in a single bound, and take care of the fact that I never remember to accessorize when running out the door.”
—Danielle Claro, Deputy Editor
To buy: $2,800, neimanmarcus.com.
“I wouldn’t want to leave the house for fear of having to take these fuzzy, grown up slippers off!”
—Sydney Hershman, Home Assistant
To buy: $850, neimanmarcus.com.
“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!)”
—Heather Muir, Beauty Director
To buy: $798, neimanmarcus.com.
“I can just see my daughter riding throughout Brooklyn in this car! Wouldn’t it be amazing?!”
—Victoria Sanchez Lincoln, Fashion Director
To buy: $395, neimanmarcus.com.
“These boots hit all my fantasy gift points…they’re Italian (Aquatalia is my fav), fur-lined, have a comfy low-wedge heel in a neutral color. I would wear them with everything!”
—Filomena Guzzardi, Editorial Production Director
To buy: $550, neimanmarcus.com.
“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.”
—Sarah Yang, Realsimple.com Lifestyle Editor
To buy: $599, neimanmarcus.com.
