Bespoke Global Falconry Companion

Flip through the Neiman Marcus list of Fantasy Gifts in the merchant's annual Christmas Book and you'll find such practical household staples as a $344,500 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante, or, you know, a $1.5 million, 201-inch outdoor TV and entertainment system. But few items get the heart pumping like its Bespoke Global Falconry Companion, which sends a sport once reserved for the nobility of Medieval Europe and the Mongolian Empire soaring into the 21st century. This magnificent set includes all the accoutrements a competitive or casual falconer could require, including a 20-karat gold-plated perch and four exotic-skin leather hoods (for your raptor). There's also furniture: Chatwin chairs and a foldout table by Richard Wrightman (a favorite of King Abdullah of Jordan), a handmade backgammon board, and even a crystal decanter and cigar cutter. (Falcon sold separately.) [$150,000; neimanmarcus.com]
