The Holiday Shops at Bryant Park Are Now Open

The holiday season in New York City is unlike anywhere else in the world.  From beautifully decorated department store windows to the giant Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center, the holiday spirit is in the air all over town.  When searching for the perfect gifts for your lovers and friends, spend a few hours wandering through The Holiday Shops in Brant Park for shopping, dining, and ice skating.

An array of gifts are available in over 100 stores and shops circling Bryant Park, from jewelry and women's fashions for your BFF to artisan foods for your mother, and kids toys and clothing for your adorable niece and nephew.  There is something for everyone on your nice (or naughty) list!
To make sure you don't shop until you drop, refuel with delicious snacks.  Stop by Wafels & Dinges to try De Throwdown Wafel (covered in gingerbread-tasting spekuloos spread and whipped cream) and De Bacon Syrup Wafel (not just perfect for breakfast).  Grab a pickle to crunch on from Pickle Me Pete, or create the perfect jar of pickles, ranging from Full Sour to Ridiculously Spicy, for a gift for the foodie or chef in your life.  Can't decide between salty or sweet cravings?  Try a sample of kettle corn at Kettle Corn NYC.  Grab a bag (or two) from their array of flavors, from Chocolate N' Caramel to Spicy Cajun BBQ, to enjoy as you shop or to take home for a late night snack with your roomies (if you're willing to share).
Store your shopping bags in a locker at Citi Pond to enjoy free ice skating through February 26th!  Skate rentals cost $14, but if you bring your own lock, the use of the lockers are free.  Enjoy the beautiful view of the Holiday Shops and the Midtown skyline as your skate with your crush or best girlfriends.  Stop by Celsius for a cocktail with a view, to warm up after you exit the rink.  

Visit The Holiday Shops at Bryant Park for a lovely afternoon or evening of New York City shopping, dining, and ice skating to celebrate the holidays from now until January 8th, 2012.
