As we count down the days until Thanksgiving and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, we can’t help but think about the holiday season down the road! We all know and love how much of a festive wonderland NYC becomes, and that includes the elaborate window displays across different storefronts. From nutcrackers to candy canes, here are some of the most stunning holiday window displays you’ve got to check out this year!
They are officially here! Arguably one of the most famous NYC stores during holiday season unveiled their window and light displays last night (11/22) and they are absolutely stunning. Saks Fifth Avenue always goes all out with their decorations, and they are typically done around a specific theme. This year’s displays are in collaboration with the Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Rocket Fund, which includes a $1 million donation from Saks to the charity. Learn more about the collaboration here, and be sure to stop by the window display on 5th Ave between 49th and 50th.
Macy’s stunning window display is now on show until New Years Day, and it features Tiptoe the reindeer, and many more fun friends! This year’s theme aims to “celebrate togetherness and festive nostalgia” with the mystical creature as the figurehead. Be sure to stop by the Herald Square location if you’re looking to get some holiday cheer! Also, check out Santaland in Macy’s too.
Bloomingdale’s decked out their windows last week (11/17) and we are absolutely loving it! This year’s display features eye-twinkling items like festive wrapping paper and champagne glasses, in addition to a toy workshop and a three-dimensional camera. Be sure to follow their Instagram as well to see what gift-giving events and activations they have in store this holiday season!
4. Bergdorf Goodman
Bergdorf Goodman’s “Magic in the Making” campaign is the star of this year’s show, and as you can see above, it embraces bright splashes of festive red and green! The arrangement of windows “draws back the curtain of luxury, bringing to light the exceptional artistry and extraordinary thinking behind all that we find truly special.” Discover all the artistic windows on 5th Avenue & 58th Street!

Although you may not be shopping for new jewelry, you should still stop by Cartier during holiday season to see their jaw-dropping displays, often times featuring their beautiful accessories. Their flagship on the corner of 5th Ave is often decorated head-to-toe with astonishing bright lights, and their windows match the part. Be sure to stop by and snap a photo in front of their illuminated windows!
6. FAO Schwarz
This toy store is not only perfect for getting your holiday shopping, but also boasts cute eye candy that will give your shopping list some inspiration. From nutcrackers to stuffed animals, FAO Schwarz and its assortment of toys on display is not only just a kid’s dream, but one for everybody!
