2010 marks the 50th anniversary of the extraordinary His & Hers gifts that Stanley Marcus challenged his team to devise every year.
The first out-of-the-ordinary gifts offered were his and hers airplanes. And there is such a lot of amusement to be had within the pages of this year's book!

- In 1964 you could get a pair of camel's flown in for $100,000
- In 1976 a pair of buffalo calves for $11,750
- In 1983 a pair of Shar-Pei puppies for $7750
- In 2010 there's a gorgeous Alexander McQueen dress for $5,135. There's definitely something wrong with the price of that dress!
A few of the options this year? You can get His/Hers MetroShip Luxury Houseboats for $250,000.
A Tory Burch Family Chariot Trike for $4500!
A Gingerbread Playhouse that's actually edible for $15,000 from Dylan's Candy Bar. That's Ralph Lauren's daughter.
Or maybe for a cool $1,500,000 you'd prefer Dale Chihuly to transform your pool into a work of art?
I adore Chihuly's glass sculptures. The symphony hall in our city has a bright red one that's fantastic.
