Literary stocking stuffer  OCT 09 2009

One of the items in this year's Christmas catalog from Neiman Marcus is a dinner for the buyer and a guest with "the brightest minds of modern literature, journalism, and the arts". Among those who may be in attendance at said dinner are George Stephanopoulos, John Lithgow, Nora Ephron, and Malcolm Gladwell.

The price: $200,000.

In recent years, the gifts on offer have grown increasingly extravagant and ridiculous: a modern Zeppelin for $10 million, a 3-hole golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus for your back yard for $1 million, and a private concert with Elton John for $1.5 million. (via girlhacker)
