Opening Ceremony calls one section of its 2017 gift guide ‘Crazy Gifts’ — and in terms of price, they totally are.
The fashion brand is offering five one-of-a-kind experiences for shoppers, each of which costs thousands of dollars.
The good news? The hefty price tags are actually donations that will be made to several different nonprofit organizations.
Something special: Opening Ceremony’s ‘crazy gift’ guide includes one-of-a-kind celebrity experiences
Splurge: Fans can spend thousands on lunch with Chloe Sevigny or a private video message from Jonah Hill
’90s kids: Also on offer is a custom illustration from the people behind Ren & Stimpy
Alternatives: Fans can also spend $1,000 on a video message from Whoopi Goldberg or $5,000 for a package from the New York City Ballet and Justin Peck
One of those special experiences already seems to be sold out: The brand was offering lunch with actress Chloe Sevigny for $2,000, but the link on the gift guide’s homepage no longer leads customers to a place to purchase it.
Still up for grabs, though, is a video message from actor Jonah Hill for $1,000, the proceeds of which will be donated to Swing Left, an organization that benefits democratic candidates in swing districts.
Also for $1,000, Whoopi Goldberg is offering a video message as well.
Ren & Stimpy fans with $3,000 to spare can buy ‘a custom Ren & Stimpy-style rendering of you and a friend, drawn by the show’s illustrators’. Proceeds go to the ACLU.
Finally, the highest price tag belongs to the $5,000 New York City Ballet and Justin Peck package. A customer who buys this will get to watch a private rehearsal, get a backstage tour, and see a performance with Justin Peck, the Resident Choreographer of New York City Ballet.
Launching it: Last year, Opening Ceremony designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon offered other ‘crazy’ gifts
Style splurge: The rest of the gift guide’s packed with fashion items like a $1,055 Chen Peng coat and $525 Nicole Saldana denim boots
Stocking stuffer: These funky Claire Barrow earrings will set a shopper back $250
Unique: These $178 slippers by Ariana Bohling are meant to be worn outside
Proceeds go to NYCB’s Educational Programs, which do public school residencies, special family performances, and dance workshops for disabled students in New York City.
The ‘crazy gifts’ are slightly less pricey than last year’s, when Opening Ceremony launched the special guide.
For 2016, shoppers could spend $10,000 on a custom piece designed by Opening Ceremony’s Humberto Leon or $5,000 on dinner with the store’s founders. There was also an auction starting at $5,500 for a lunch date with Spike Jonze and Jonah Hill.
Customers who don’t have quite so much to spend can still find some more unusual gifts on the site. Among the clothing, jewelry, and accessories in the gift guide edit are a pair of $178 fur slippers (meant for wearing outside), $525 denim thigh-high boots, some funky earrings for $250, and a $1,055 puffy silver coat.
