Christmas for kids and families in NYC

This Christmas for kids, take part in all of the wonderful Christmas events and activities that make NYC so wonderful!

Filip Wolak

Christmas, for kids, is one of the happiest times of the year! We're dreaming of freshly-baked cookies, visits to "GingerBread Lane," picking the best toys at our favorite local toy stores, zooming down sledding hills and building snowmen on the sidewalk—even meeting Santa Claus at Macy's Santaland. 

Most of all, we're really excited about the way New York sparkles during the holidays—making it one of the best Christmas spots for kids in the universe. Don't forget to explore the local holiday markets for handmade trinkets and to see the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree lighting on November 28th (or watch it from the comfort of your couch!) to kick off the season.

Celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah this year with the best holiday gifts for kids! We have cool picks for every kid (big and small) in hopes of making your lives just a little bit easier. Be warned: You might be up late "test driving" them—you know, to make sure they work and stuff. We'd also recommend a visit to local holiday markets—Bryant Park Winter Village is just one of many cool places to check out. Since, well, 'tis the season, we'd also recommend taking the festivities one step further with a visit to some of the coolest local ice-skating rinks and holiday markets, a day trip to one of these Christmas tree farms or a family movie night with one of our 20 best Christmas movies for kids.
