KHQ.com -

For nearly a century luxury retailer Neiman Marcus has been advertising Christmas gifts that, let's face it, most of us can't afford. But it can be fun to imagine. Neiman Marcus released its 2014 Christmas Book Tuesday, and as you can imagine, many of the gifts are what you might call pricey. Like, crazy pricey.

Details on five of the fantasy gifts below. And just in case you're losing your mind about these prices, we should say that a portion of the proceeds supports the Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation, which gives art experiences to kids in need.

1. Preston Bailey Large Outdoor Garden Peacock

Price: $65,000

You can buy a six-foot-tall garden peacock with a 10-foot tail, or a three-foot indoor version.

2. The slot mods USA ultimate slot car raceway

Price: $300,000

A 1:32-scale model of racetracks from around the world. Some of the biggest, like Le Mans and Laguna Seca.

3. 100th anniversary edition Neiman Marcus Maserati Ghibli S Q4

Price: $95,000

There is luxury ... and then there is this limited edition Maserati. Here's just part of the description: "sensuous curved lines punctuated with an aggressive grill."

4. Vanity Fair Academy Awards Experience

Price: $425,000

Hobnob with celebrities as you take part in the Vanity Fair Academy Awards party. But take note: you won't actually get to go to the Oscars. You'll watch it, on TV, like everyone else. But at least you might be next to Kathy Griffin.

5. His and Hers Quadski

Price: $50,000

Forget "his and hers" bathroom sinks. The Quadski goes from landrover to water cruiser in seconds. This one actually seems moderately priced for how amazingly awesome it would be.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - "He told me to pull over, and my jaw just dropped," a Spokane woman, who says a fake police officer tried to pull her over, doesn't want to be named. In fear, this could happen again. "It really scared me and kind of threw me off that night. I don't even want to drive by myself anymore," she said. She tells me that she was driving around North Spokane at night on her way home from work.

    Man accused of assault after putting wife with dementia on leash

    Tuesday, September 18 2018 10:40 AM EDT2018-09-18 14:40:20 GMT

    A Maryland man is facing a simple assault charge after using a dog leash to lead his wife around a Pennsylvania fair because she has late-stage dementia.    West Manchester police say Walter Wolford yanked the 8-inch long red nylon leash, causing his wife's head to jerk back and leave red marks around her throat. But the 66-year-old Hagerstown man says he only gently tugged on the leash, which he uses to keep his wife from getting lost.
