HIGHTOWER: A Neiman Marcus Holiday

Gosh gang, it's time to get out there and shop!What? You're sick of the whole got-to-shop-for-gifts holiday rut? Not to worry -- I have just what you need right here in "Hightower's Annual Reading of the Neiman Marcus Catalogue."Is dad a baseball fan? Then take him back to the "Field of Dreams" by buying a set of authentic seats from the old Brooklyn Dodgers Stadium, Ebbets Field. Including patches of the original "Dodger Blue" paint, dad will love sitting in these and dreaming of the old days -- $3,750 for a set of three.Of course, you'll need a stocking stuffer for that special someone. So, why not a box of Cracker Jacks? Remember the thrill of finding the prize inside? The Neiman Marcus version gives you not only an authentic box of Cracker Jacks -- but a real prize. His is a pair of limited edition, silver cuff links. Hers is an 18-karat gold ring with a ruby or other precious stone. This is so drop-dead cute, and it's only $400 for him, or $950 for her.But let's get serious. You need a gift that's different, that the people next door won't get, right? So how about a maze? Neiman's will build a garden maze in your yard, using tall hedges, turf, stone, and other materials. You can have an entrance pool, bridges, waterfalls, statues ... whatever. Custom-designed by an internationally renown maze designer, prices start at $250,000. Simply a-mazing!The holidays, though, are really for kids, so why not create a special bedroom for them based on the beloved "Wizard of Oz" movie? Complete with custom-designed Oz furniture, a wall mural of Dorothy and gang, and a Yellow Brick Road carpet -- your little tykes will love it! $150,000 ... plus $35 for a stuffed version of Dorothy's little dog "Toto."This is Jim Hightower saying ... Shopping is simple ... assuming you've got the bucks.
