The Best Places for Holiday Shopping in NYC

Category General

|by Jane Jourdan |


Need some last-minute gifts in the city?

Depending on where you’re shopping in NYC around the holidays, it can either feel like a treasure trove or a tornado, and considering there is enough stress around the holiday season, we want to send you to a few of our favorite places to shop before the New Year (post-holiday sales, anyone?). These areas have a wide variety of shopping, while also allowing for extra sightseeing in the greatest city in the world during the holiday season.

Rockefeller Center 
The Tree is still sparkling and we are still shopping in Rockefeller Center! From the shops inside Rockefeller plaza to some of our favorite spots on 5th Ave., we come to this area for the variety and seasonal vibe! Definitely leave extra time to hop into the skating rink at Rockefeller Plaza, a bucket list holiday to-do we check off every year! 

Bergdorf Goodman 
Nothing says New York shopping quite like Bergdorfs! We could spend hours on every floor and with holiday sales, we can find some reasonably priced designer pieces that we’ve been eyeing all year long! Plus, in case you’re still searching for that perfect NYE dress, you will certainly find it here! Leave time for dining at BG Restaurant, our favorite on the 7th floor! 

The Shops at Columbus Circle
Literally one of our favorite holiday spots, purely for the decorations, but also for the shopping, The Shops at Columbus Circle are so festive and fun, we could spend an entire afternoon inside this landmark! Plus, end the day at one of their star restaurants for an entire day on the southwest side of Central Park! 

Bryant Park
We love shopping around Bryant Park especially when the holiday vendors are still out where we can find sweet souvenirs for our loved ones and enjoy hot chocolate and treats while we shop! Leave time to hop into the skating rink! 

Macy’s
Macy’s is after all the iconic holiday shopping epicenter, showcased each year at the Thanksgiving Day Parade! We love Macys because we can find something for everyone all without leaving the building! Don’t forget to snag a picture outside with the holiday decorations glittering!
