There is nothing quite like a shopping trip to really help you relax after the festive rush. And depending on your budget you can go long haul or a quick trip across the water.
Whatever destination you choose, make sure you bring your walking shoes with you.
If you only have a few days or a weekend to shop, Chicago is perfect. Head to their most famous shopping street, The Magnificent Mile, and pick up something highstreet or designer – the choice is yours.
Often overlooked when choosing a shopping destination it’s hard to understand why Florence is not on the top of everyone’s list. Home to beautiful shops and incredible markets you will definitely find something to fall in love with here.
For both highstreet and designer labels head to London. Soak in the atmosphere along Oxford Street and pop into Selfridges while you are there. For something a little more upmarket Harrods is your friend.
New York City
New York City is the good old reliable for a bit of shopping. Head to the outlets - Woodbury Common or Gabay's Outlet - where you will pick up a bargain or ten.
