Neiman Marcus unveiled its 84th Christmas Book earlier this month, reminding us that the holidays are right around the corner.

To be exact, Christmas is in 66 days, 8 hours, 5 minutes, and 15 seconds. Not that I'm counting or anything.

In the past, I remained in denial about it until well after Thanksgiving. Since I'm a mom now, I'm going to attempt to prep early and avoid any final hour sprees during which I inevitably spend way too much money and jeopardize years of life expectancy with stress and anxiety.

The Christmas Book provides a ton of inspiration (maybe not for things I would buy for others but certainly things I would like to receive or buy for myself!) with its Fab Finds, Little Gems (Neiman Marcus' Collection $100 and under), and of course, the always anticipated Fantasy Gifts.

This year's ultra luxury gifts include: a MetroShip Luxury Houseboat, a His & Hers Diamond & Gold Charm Bracelet (I'm not sure where the his comes into play but let's assume it means his credit card paid for it), a Neiman Marcus Edition Camaro Convertible, a ukulele handmade from a gourd (that's some fantasy), and my personal fave:

Holiday 2010 marks the 50th Anniversary of His & Hers gifts and Neiman Marcus' charitable partner this year is Big Brothers Big Sisters, an organization dedicated to improving children's lives by pairing them with role models within their communities, and one that I'm very fond of. A portion of each His & Hers Ornament sold this year will benefit BBBS.

So tell me, have you begun your holiday shopping yet?
