Beautiful Christmas trees, sparkling lights, ice skating at Rockefeller Plaza, all of these are the wonderful things to partake in New York City at the Holidays. But, if you are like me you have shopping to do, and there is no better place to do it than New York City. Sure, go in the big box stores like Macy’s and check out those incredible holiday windows at Bergdorf Goodman’s. Those stores are like dinner, they offer up a big selection of a lot of things, but if you want dessert, you want to discover where the New Yorker’s shop. I hope you will have the chance to discover some of these gems.
