One of the classic destinations for Christmas shopping, New York is effervescent with festive sparkle at this time of year, buzzing with a great vibe and bursting with opportunities to purchase fabulous gifts for your friends, family…even yourself! In addition to gift-shopping on Fifth Avenue, at the Christmas markets, the quirky boutiques of SoHo and department stores such as Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s, we can offer fabulous, exclusive shopping experiences – in association with Simon Shopping Destinations – that serious shoppers will love, such as a luxury personal shopping experience with an exceptional stylist and costume designer, and a luxury gift. And when you’ve shopped until you can shop no more, there’s so much more to experience in one of the world’s greatest cities, including an assortment of ice-rinks, The New York Pops at Carnegie Hall and, of course, the glittering, Swarovski crystal star-topped Christmas Tree fronting the Rockerfeller Center, which is a must-see if you’re in the city during December. If you’re in the city at New Year, there’s also the famous Times Square Ball Drop to be a part of – country music star, Carrie Underwood is the headline act this year. While you’re in town, you’re going to need a fabulously stylish luxury sanctuary to return to after all that festive activity. May we recommend the glamorous Mandarin Oriental, New York , which boasts a superb location at the south corner of Central Park – conveniently (and perhaps too temptingly!) close to the centre of all things luxury in Manhattan, including the designer stores of Fifth Avenue and the Times Warner Center, along with sophisticated restaurants and bars and world-famous art galleries and museums.
