Holiday Shopping with Krystal Bick
Fashionable girl about town Krystal Bick — author of the style and lifestyle blog This Time Tomorrow — always knows just the right things to buy. So with holiday shopping top of mind, we found out what's on her gift-giving list from The Shops at Columbus Circle. And that's what we want on our on our lists, too.
Krystal, where do you start your holiday shopping expeditions at The Shops at Columbus Circle?
Williams-Sonoma truly believes home is at the heart of everything. They have lovely marble cheese cutting boards and coasters with stylish rose gold copper accents that you can have monogrammed. Every year, I can’t wait for the peppermint bark to be in-store. A great gift, it’s made in small batches and only available during the holidays. It sells out fast.
I have two special men to shop for this year, namely my boyfriend and my dad. Hugo Boss has well-crafted pieces like a great scarf, a beanie, or driving gloves in beautiful Napa leather that I know my dad would love. And true confession: I’m also crushing on an emerald green statement party dress for me.
What about the women in your life?
My mom steals my Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir when she comes to visit, so I want something special for her. I’m also looking for small gifts for my sister and friends. At Jo Malone, there’s everything from stocking stuffers to the London Townhouse-themed advent calendar, a collector’s item bursting with festive surprises.
Who is next on your list?
I have a few music lovers in my life, and the new wireless Devialet Phantom is a super compact sound system that you can connect to most streaming services, as well as your TV or CD player. I’m in the holiday spirit now, so I listened to Christmas Carols in the Immerser demo booth to experience its revolutionary quality sound.
Perfect way to top off a shopping day?
I love checking out the latest beauty trends at M.A.C. Cosmetics. This holiday season, it’s all about being the “sleigh belle” of the ball: They have cute gift kits for Secret Santa parties and my beauty buff BFFs. They also offer makeup consultations to help you define your holiday look. I walked out party ready with my favorite Ruby Woo lips.
