We all have that person in our lives, whom we love dearly and cherish to the ends of the Earth, but have absolutely no idea what to buy for when the holidays roll around. Maybe they collect figurines or are a sports fanatic, but the thing about the holidays is that you can be creative. You don’t have to give them the same gift that everyone else is going to, like another figurine or another gift certificate to a sports bar.

Try considering experiences as gifts, like taking them somewhere that they can take photographs and enjoy the scenery and soak up the atmosphere. In honor of our favorite thoughtful gift, we’ve built a list of destinations for a How a Long Island Limo can make your holiday better. It’s a gift that takes thoughtful to another level and incorporates togetherness in a way that just can’t be equaled by another knick-knack.

  1. Rockefeller CenterMaybe you’re a native New Yorker, maybe you aren’t, but this one is quintessential for a limousine tour. Rockefeller has been the site of one of the most treasured American holiday traditions for 75 years. You can see the Rockefeller Christmas tree from down the street, but nothing can really prepare you for seeing it up close. With 35,000 lights and a huge Swarovski Christmas star, it’s nothing like the tree in your living room. If your loved one enjoys ice skating, the famous Rockefeller Ice Rink is open for the holiday season through January 7. If skating isn’t on their radar, you can always enjoy a cup of hot cocoa and watch first-time skaters struggle around the ice.
  2. Holiday Train Show at the New York City Botanical GardenThe New York City Botanical Garden is a Victorian-Era New York City mainstay that features 50 gardens, and 50 acres of native forest. The Holiday Train Show is held indoors, which means a warm reprieve from the bitter cold of New York winter. It showcases over 140 replicas of New York City landmarks and model trains, making it an favorite among both children and adults.
  3. The Nutcracker at the New York City Ballet  This holiday tradition, like the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, has almost come to symbolize the holidays in New York City. The show has been staged in New York for the past 58 years, and is perfect for families or for adults who loved the story when they were children.
  4. The Dream New York Hotel If a night out in the city should end in hotel bliss, the Dream has everything you need. In addition to luxury and elegance in the hotel rooms, the Dream features a world-class restaurant in Seraphina, a bar with world-class cocktails and a nightclub on the roof which offers some of the most breathtaking views of Times Square around.
  5. East Meets West Christmas Parade If you’re looking for a more multicultural holiday experience, this Christmas parade will likely be along your lines. Chinatown and Little Italy commence for a parade of Dragon Dancers, marching bands and random entertainers from both Eastern and Western traditions. The parade is held outside, so remember to dress appropriately. Also, be prepared to fight foodie temptations from the barrage of delicious multicultural restaurants on Canal Street.
  6. Window Shopping Window shopping is another holiday tradition that can only really be done right in New York City. You’ll love ipping hot chocolate while making your way down Fifth Avenue arm in arm with your loved one, viewing the ornate window displays that have been famous in NYC for decades. Check out Macy’s on Sixth, Saks on Fifth and Barney’s on Madison for some of the best displays NYC has to offer.
