Hi friends, welcome back! Every year, Jon and I always go to Macy’s on 34th Street to view the window displays and pick out a new ornament at the Holiday Lane shop. This years windows display “Tip Toe”, an adorable and shy reindeer too afraid to fly and join Santa’s sleigh team. Her friends enlist the North Pole elves to build her a flying machine, but it broke down during her flight test. As the sleigh and Tip Toe plummeted to the ground, she realized she only had to believe in herself and then she could fly. Once she found the courage to believe in herself, she flew even higher and was never afraid to fly again. You can watch a short video of Tip Toe here for more cuteness.
I think these windows and Tip Toe are so adorable, and I love the theme of believing in yourself and the magic of Christmas!
The other windows feature some fun kid toys and a T-Rex breaking out of the window.
At the front of the Macys, Christmas music was blasting from the Salvation Army stand and I thought to myself, it doesn’t get much better than Christmas in NYC!
I walked through the decked-out Macys and headed up to the Holiday Lane on the top floor. I always love seeing the different themed Christmas trees and the massive ornament collection. (Jon and I went back yesterday and wow it was packed but all the ornaments were 70% off at least!)
You can also write your letter to Santa here.
While I absolutely loved the exterior and window displays at Macy’s, I thought Holiday Lane was a little underwhelming compared to 2019 when they had a ski lift and massive Letters to Santa mailbox, but I still enjoyed walking through and picking out some ornaments. I hope you enjoyed this little bit of holiday magic from the famous Macy’s on 34th Street! I believe it’s a must visit place if you’re coming to NYC for the holidays, plus you can do some holiday shopping. Next stop, Bryant Park!
