Leontine Linens, a New Orleans-based company with a Kentucky connection, made it on the fantasy gift list in this year's Neiman Marcus Christmas Book.
Leontine Linens founder Jane Scott Hodges, a native of Georgetown, acquired the Eleanor Beard Studio in Hardinsburg in 2002. It is here that the company's exquisite monogrammed towels, sheets and other linens are produced.
The Leontine Linens Home Trousseau is one of 10 fantasy gifts for Neiman Marcus. You'll receive an in-home visit from Hodges. "Together, you will select bed, bath, and table linens for every room in your house from the master bedroom to the pool house to create a perfectly appointed home," reads the description from the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book, which was released on Tuesday. The price of the package: $55,000.
This year's other fantasy gifts include a Vanity Fair Academy Awards Experience for $425,000 and a 100th anniversary Neiman Marcus Limited-Edition Maserati Ghibili S Q4, $95,000.
