Whenever I want to get into the holiday spirit the first place I go in NYC, even before the store windows, is Rockefeller Center I love walking into the space and seeing people ice-skating and of course the famous tree. There is always music and bells and it just makes me get in the mood for the holiday season no matter what else is going on. I was really pleased when Rockefeller Center NY asked me to partner with them to create a sponsored gift guide.
This year as you know I am so busy and I have a large family and a large shopping list. Fortunately for me Rock Center not only gives me the spirit but it has over 100 stores all in close proximity making it easy to cross people off my list in one afternoon trip. The stores range from designer to NYC souvenirs to luggage to chocolate.
For this trip I wanted to focus on the three most incredible women and girl I know: my sister, my daughter and my granddaughter. The only problem when you shop for other fashionable and cool people is you also find many things that you actually like for yourself. Well I have worked hard this year…
My granddaughter shares my love for the dramatic and quirky so for her I choose a Tiffany Sterling Silver Bubble blower and the Everyday Objects Bone China Paper Cup (and I get the Gold Hardwear Ball ring).
My sister shares my love of sunglasses but is a little more conservative so she gets the Celine cat eyes from Studio Optix. (and for me the Pugnale Visione to add to my statement sunglass collection).
My classy, professional daughter reminds me of a Michael Kors woman and so for her the Bancroft snake-skin shoulder strap bag. What can I say but no way can I resist the studded stretch crepe suit for myself.
So if you are on the hunt for a quintessential NYC Holiday experience and need to get some items checked off your list make sure you stop by Rockefeller Center, the place that has it all.
