Affordable finds in Neiman Marcus's Christmas Book


The 83rd edition of Neiman Marcus's Christmas Book was released last week. Historically, the catalog has showcased outlandish gift items. This year, the Dallas-based retailer made their catalog more recession-friendly with almost half of the items being $250 or less. Now that will put you in the gift-giving spirit!

Of course, there are still luxury items like a beautiful Jaguar $105,000, a $250,000 ICON A5 sports aircraft plus pilot training for two and a $25,000 cupcake car (see above). Here are a few of my favorite affordable items (under $200) from this year's catalog...

-Tea for One set ($25) - Tea lovers rejoice! The stoneware pot, teacup and saucer in red, black or white with a bauble on top is adorable.

-NM Shopping Bag Ornament ($45, pictured) - Oh, I definitely need this adorable glass ornament for my Christmas tree.

-MARC by Marc Jacobs slippers ($175) - These cozy slippers in faux shearling and velvet are emblazoned with the MJ logo in navy or bordeaux.

-Johnny Was Tunic ($180-$200) - This pretty, colorful tunic comes in sizes XS-3X.

-John Hardy Bracelet ($195) - I especially love this 'Kali' bracelet in black since it would go with a lot.

-Laura Mercier NM Exclusive Essential Eye Organizer ($125, pictured) - There are 12 lovely shades of eyeshadow plus three brushes in this compact.
