Christmas shopping in New York simply has to be done, at least once in a lifetime! Why not make it happen this year….
Christmas magic is on every street corner. Bloomingdales, Macys, Tiffany, Saks, all the big department stores bring a whole new meaning to the term window shopping, with displays that take months to prepare. If you thought Brown Thomas’ window was good, wait till you see Saks Fifth Avenue, check out the short video below and you will know what I mean! There are also Christmas markets in New York if thats your thing, in Bryant Park and Union Square. Both offer plenty of local souvenirs and Christmas decorations to bring home with you, as well some tasty New York treats. You can pick up plenty of stocking fillers in Canal Street (Chinatown), the latest Tiffany necklace for about $10 or maybe a Michael Kors watch for $20! If its the real thing you seek then head for Macys or Bloomingdales, where you will pick up presents for a lot less than at home. If you have time, take the bus to Woodbury Common Premium Outlets, the savings are incredible! Read my blog here on the best places for Christmas shopping in New York .
If you fancy a break from shopping but still want some Christmas cheer, try ice skating at the Rockefeller Centre or in Central Park. If you have time, try to visit the One World Observatory and take time out on the Highline. Check out my list of the top 25 things to do in New York for some more inspiration. The Christmas tree in Rockefeller centre will be illuminated on the 29th of November. Thousands will gather to watch the famous ceremony as well as millions from around the world. I have teamed up with Click&Go who offer a variety of packages to New York and who have lots of offers for Christmas shopping in New York in November and December.
I have chosen the 4* Wyndham New Yorker hotel which is ideally situated in the heart of Midtown Manhattan and receives good reviews on tripadvisor. Fly direct from Dublin with Aer Lingus on the 19th of November and enjoy a three night stay for only €597 per person, based on 2 sharing. Bring a few friends and the price is even less! If you want to wait until the Christmas lights are on in December they have a deal flying on the 13th of December for €699! Both prices include a 23kg checked bag each and if you book now you only need to pay a €100 deposit per person! If the dates below don’t suit or you want to stay a little longer you can search easily on the Click&Go website or call the dedicated sales team (who are there seven days a week) on 01-5397723.
