Holiday Windows 2012: The Unofficial Tour

Ahhh the holidays, a time to give, a time to receive and a time to elbow through endless crowds gawking at store windows around Manhattan and across the pond in London. Indeed, it truly is the most joyful time of year. For however annoying those tourists who stop mid-stroll are, you can't blame them. When you have some of the most creative people in the world fashioning displays out of shiny things, it's not easy to ignore. To that end, we've gathered a few of our favorites here so you won't have to face the crowd. Enjoy.

Once, I had a desk with a shelf just like that. It had a Nightmare Before Christmas snowglobe on it. Somebody, who shall remain nameless, knocked the whole thing down and it ruined my Christmas. These are really nice though.
