Home for Christmas at Rustan's

Christmas is a movable feast — we find it in our hearts, in our homes, everywhere the spirit takes us. Your home for Christmas is waiting at Rustan’s.

This year, Christmas will have a truly deeper meaning. As families spend more time at home, we will revel in the warmth and affection that we feel when we are with our loved ones. It’s the kind of resilient joy that finds its root in a grateful heart.

Every year, we await what will be the artistic scenes in Rustan’s Christmas windows — we literally go window shopping! As Rustan’s opens its Christmas windows today, we feel the nostalgia in a home brightened by a Christmas tree.

So many Christmas trees, so little time. Because at this time, we usually start visualizing how our tree will be. The Christmas tree is our metaphor for this season of giving. Under it are the gifts for our loved ones. On the tree, we hang the trinkets that give joy to us — from candy canes to miniature toys to shimmery balls. Going inside Rustan’s, we see a wide selection of traditional and modern trees, lights, ornaments, ribbons and accessories; Rustan’s Christmas Shop is the metro’s go-to décor destination.

Oh Christmas tree: So many themes and colors to choose from at Rustan’s Christmas Shop.
