Luxury shoppers browsing this year's Neiman Marcus Christmas Book can get a dancing water fountain for $1 million, a $420,000 trip to European flower shows on a private jet or a handcrafted mahogany boat for $250,000.

The Dallas-based retailer unveiled the "fantasy items" in the 85th edition of its famous catalog Tuesday.

John E. Koryl, president of Neiman Marcus Direct, says almost half of the 600 items on this year's list are under $250. But that doesn't include a limited edition Ferrari FF. Just 10 will be available, at $395,000 a pop.

Some other items on the "fantasy" list include:

  • Daytrip to Stone Barns Farm  in Pocantico Hills, New York with dinner at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, offering multiple-course feasts prepared from the food harvested at the farm. Cost: $9,500
  • Custom-built library featuring the Assouline collection, including published works from artists, writers, photographers, and others. Cost: $125,000
  • The "Dream Folly," inspired by the TV show "I Dream of Jeannie" includes a 18-foot-diameter yurt with luxury pillows, crystal chandelier, and more. Cost: $75,000
  • Artist Tom Burr has created a all-black piece that doubles as a ping pong table. Cost: $45,000
