    Should you shop on Thanksgiving Day? NBC News takes a look at which retailers are getting a jump on holiday sales and which will stay closed for 2016. (Published Thursday, Nov. 17, 2016)

    It’s time to make your list and check it twice. Neiman Marcus unveiled their famous Christmas magazine - "The Christmas Book," this week.

    The hundreds of gifts featured in the book range from $15 to $1.5 million. You’ll find standard items, like designer clothing and jewelry, in the catalog. But, you’ll also find “fantasy gifts” - arguably the most outlandish part of the catalog. 

    Here are a few of the more far out items in this year’s book.

    1. For $30,000 you can hit Broadway for a walk-on role in the musical Waitress. You’ll get four premium show tickets and a meet-and-greet with the cast. You’ll also get a Waitress themed pie-making lesson from the show’s pie consultant.

    2. If Broadway isn’t your style, how about a stay at three English estates? For $700,000 you and seven people can live like royalty for a week. This gift comes with access to Alnwick Castle, Wilton House and Blenheim - the childhood home of Winston Churchill. Not to mention, you’ll eat and drink like kings and queens too.

    3. Does an exclusive Grammy Awards experience sound like music to your ears? For $500,000 it can be all yours. You’ll get two tickets to Los Angeles to attend the award show in February, while staying at the Peninsula Beverly Hills. An exclusive backstage tour, walk on the red carpet and a one-of-a-kind Gibson les Paul ’59 Reissue Guitar are some of the other perks that come with the tickets.

    4. How does a rose-gold private plane sound? For $1.5 million, it could be all yours. The Cobalt Valkyrie-X is the most expensive fantasy gift item. It comes with rose-gold flight controls, cream leather seats and two years of 24/7 technical support in the U.S.

    5. If those items are too expensive for you Neiman Marcus has something for everyone, even those shopping on a budget. A handmade bracelet, made with “paper, glass and hope” is on sale for $25. The item is only available through Neiman Marcus, and helps support the Akola Project, an organization that “empowers marginalized women to become agents of transformation in their families and communities around the globe.”
