‘Tis the season for shopping and seasonal attractions. And depending on which you prefer – solo shopping, picking out presents with pals, or strolling along with your kids (they can help carry shopping bags!), The Shops at Columbus Circle offers fun events and shopping solutions (think: food, entertainment, and cocktails) so all of your favorite holiday shopping buddies can happily join as you check off your list. Check out The Shops at Columbus Circle’s shopping solutions for:

1.) When the kids are cranky and don’t want to walk around and shop all day: Run and grab your last-minute holiday gifts after school and then treat the kiddies to “Broadway Under the Stars,” free Broadway performances. The final December 11 performance will be held in the dazzling Great Room at 5pm, under the annual Holiday Under the Stars, twelve massive stars. These stars are the largest specialty-crafted exhibit of illuminated color display in the world, which hang from the 100-foot-high ceilings.

2.) When you feel bad leaving Fido home alone: Bring your pup with you! The Shops at Columbus Circle is dog-friendly. No more leaving your four-legged friend behind and cooped up in your apartment or hotel room this winter; they are welcome to join you on your holiday shopping trips. Insider tip: Treat your pup to the famous foie gras dog biscuits at Bouchon Bakery & Cafe.

3.) To convince your “I only shop online” sister to join you: Amazon Books opened at The Shops of Columbus Circle earlier this year. A physical extension of Amazon.com = immediate service.

4.) When you want to shop with your partner who is interested in all things shiny and new: Ask them to join you on your holiday season shopping spree so they can sign up to test drive and preview the new Maserati Levante. Catch a glimpse of the car on the ground floor through January 2.

5.) When you find yourself shopping with a hangry family member: Fuel up before, during, or after your holiday shopping spree at The Restaurant and Bar Collection, including Landmarc, Porter House Bar and Grill, and Bar Masa.

6.) For those looking for the perfect holiday libation: A personalized bottle of Hennessy for him and her. Hennessy X.O presents The Odyssey Experience: a luxury multisensory holiday pop-up through December 12. Visitors are invited to purchase a bottle of Hennessy X.O at one of several nearby retailers and bring to the Odyssey experience to have it engraved.

7.) When you plan to go shopping with a pal and remember they never carry cash but always have their credit card: Visit The Shops at Columbus Circle for an exclusive Mastercard Sip & Shop event on December 9. Sip prosecco, enjoy light bites and sweets and take advantage of special offers and gifts with purchases from select retailers.

Mastercard holders can also take a moment to relax during holiday shopping this season with a visit to the Mastercard Holiday Lounge at Time Warner Center December 6 through December 24. This second-floor lounge has everything needed to feel refreshed and ready to shop some more, with comfortable seating, a coat and bag check, phone/tablet charging stations, complimentary gifts, and more.

8.) When you are in desperate need for a solo shopping break: Stop by the Suzhou China Teahouse ‘Pop-up’ on the ground floor December 14-16. Consumers will have the ability to experience Suzhou by tasting the city’s famous Biluochun green tea in a visually rich, authentically designed iconic Suzhou teahouse.
