Here’s a quick shopping guide to get you started:

- The Shops at Prudential Center – More of a large mall type of shopping center. Excellent for finding name brands and national stores.
- Eataly – A one-stop-shop Italian haven. After noshing on a delicious pasta dish, peruse the rows of artisanal Italian goods. We’re talking luxury pasta, delicious pestos, cookware, cookbooks, Italian wines, and more. Stocking stuffers galore.
Bask in The Holiday Spirit
The same iconic historical charm Boston exudes year-round is magnified tenfold once it’s been draped in twinkling lights and holiday decor. In between work appointments and meetings, don your winter coat and head outside for a magical stroll.

Copley Square, Back Back, North End, and Boston Common and Public Garden are all areas where you’ll be treated to beautiful decorations and a delightful holiday ambiance.
