Dallas Does Christmas: Best Christmas Shopping Hot Spots in 2015

While every culture has their own special Christmas traditions, it's a safe bet to say that the Dallas tradition involves a LOT of shopping! So, if you're planning to travel to Big D around the holidays, you'll be in luck if you want to pick up presents and gifts for your loved ones back home.

Start off at one of Dallas best local shopping malls where you can choose from a wide variety of department stores, boutiques and specialty stores. And bring the kids, because Dallas malls pull out all the stops during the Christmas holidays. Along with the "perfect" Santa, NorthPark Center has the best toy train exhibit in Texas. The Dallas Galleria has the biggest indoor Christmas tree in the U.S. right in the middle of the ice skating rink!

Serious shoppers who have no time for fun and games should head directly to the Allen Premium Outlets for bargain prices and Highland Park Village for luxury, upscale boutiques. If decorating is on your mind, start at World Market first. This place has beautiful decorations and ornaments that are both unique and fashionable (i.e. no tacky snowmen). It also has a huge wine section for your upcoming Christmas feast!
