Help me gift the couple who has everything.

My sister and her husband are a stylish fortysomething two-income/no kids couple who shower the rest of us with gifts every year -- crazy inspired things like Jake Shimabukuro-autographed ukuleles, theater tickets for "it" shows moments before everyone in the world wants to see them, fully tailored Star Trek uniforms + VIP convention tickets, that sort of thing. I've put off buying a gift for them this year because nothing can measure up to the titanic coolness of the gifts they give, and I find myself with 8 hours left on my Amazon Prime membership and about $200 to spend between them, though I could go higher for something truly astonishing.
Here's what they like:
--food (eating, not cooking)
--NYC "smart set" pursuits (theater, concerts, galleries)
--over-the-top Halloween decor (their house attracts gawkers statewide)
Past gifts they've enjoyed include an amazing custom mailbox, a tree in an Italian olive grove (they received oil pressed from the fruit of the tree), a pair of realistic life-sized mummy props.
