It's hard to top a Chihuly swimming pool sculpture, but of course Neiman Marcus has managed to do just that. This year the luxury department store's Christmas Book—the annual tribute to very expensive gifting—includes a $75K yurt. Called the "Dream Folly Fantasy Gift," the 18-foot-diameter structure is produced by Seattle-based Rainier Yurts and filled with lavish interior touches—all customizable, of course—like Rebecca Vizard pillows (made from 18th-century tapestries and fabrics), a Coleman Taylor linen wall covering, and a handmade crystal chandelier. Just like the ones used by Mongolic nomads centuries ago! Neiman Marcus will "have it installed on your estate grounds in the blink of an eye" and plans to donate $5K of every yurt sold to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
