Neiman Marcus Christmas Book features jet pack

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

I have a very unique holiday gift idea. This year, instead of Broadway tickets why not get someone a part on Broadway. The Neiman Marcus Christmas Book is out. One of the items is a walk-on part on "Annie" for $30,000.

And that's just the beginning.

The most expensive gift listed in the 2012 catalog is a pair of his and hers Van Cleef & Arpels "Poetic Wish" watches and trip to Paris and Geneva for about $1.1 million.

How about a Versailles-inspired hen house for $100,000? The custom-made dwelling has a nesting area, a living room, and a library.

Who needs a water taxi when you can just jet across the Hudson or the East rivers. Yup, also in catalog is the Jetlev R200, a water-propelled jetpack that'll send you and your wallet soaring: $99,000.

Don't be discouraged. About 40 percent of the items in the catalog are under $250, which I think is still high.

Now your teens need to own the newest tablet or smart phone and its accessories.

    Conference call: your bathroom break

    We asked several people what they do when they are on a conference call. Most of them answered: "The bathroom." Yes, according to a survey conducted by InterCall, 47 percent of 500 people admitted to taking a conference call from the bathroom.

    Many new Ford and GM cars have built-in technology that allows you to monitor speed, signaling, and navigation when your child is driving. But when it comes to this type of digital snooping, teens and their parents often have differing opinions. Kids may call it an invasion of privacy. Most parents, of course, will likely feel otherwise.
