The Season Ahead
Every year our holiday windows attract crowds along Fifth Avenue. This year’s theme is “Carnival of Animals,” and the visual team has let their vivid imagination run wild. Life-size members of the animal kingdom will offer a sharp contrast with what you’ll find in Central Park. You can see the results when they’re unveiled on November 19th. Last year our holiday video, “Follow Me,” which is living happily on YouTube, was a lighthearted look at how our elaborate windows were assembled (stay tuned to 5th/58th & bg.com for this year’s video). It’s another reminder that during the hectic holiday season, window reveling can be the best show in town.
THE HOLIDAY WINDOWS
November 19– January 2
Whether you’re celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, the Saturnalia or Winter Solstice, our Holiday Shop on Seven is the place to go for the unique, bespoke, one-of-a-kind, exclusive, handcrafted and simply inimitable celebratory decorations, ornaments, artifacts, implements and what have ye. Where else will you find BG’s own popcorn, weekly chocolate and cookie tastings, Margaret Larkin holiday trees bedecked in vintage costume jewelry, Linda Fargo and designer ornaments, exclusive dolls from Katherine’s Collection, needlepoint deer heads and limited-edition moose heads (both preferred by children to the real thing), and our very own Santa Claus. If he is not the real St. Nick, he is by far the most realistic and jolly facsimile in town.

We know shopping for presents can induce a bout of nerves (see our article “Present Danger”). So we’ve done our part to make it as easy as possible to be the devoted friend, spouse, even son-in-law. Our gift book is full of unique selections— chalk-board penguin, perhaps — that will satisfy everyone on your shopping list. Shop while sipping eggnog by the fire (that’s why they invented the internet) at bg.com for selections from our gift book. And we’re building the ultimate gift-finding tool available on Facebook and our blog, 5th/58th. If you require even more custom expertise (or hand-holding), our personal shoppers will help you select memorable gifts you can’t find anywhere else. Or take the easy way out with a BG Gift Card, which always comes in the right size. With all these choices, there’s no excuse to arrive empty-handed at all those holiday parties on your calendar.
