Destination Christmas Pt. 1: Best Locations For A Bougie Christmas

You can just picture it: the snow is floating down around you, your scarf is dancing in the wind, and the castle behind you is just right for your Instagram post. It’s the bougie Christmas of your dreams — but where is this magical destination?

Just because you’re traveling this holiday season doesn’t mean your house shouldn’t look as extra as usual.

International:

Grab your passport and get ready to spam your Instagram with all of your best content. Nothing says bougie quite like a Christmas spent abroad.

France

As if Paris, France, isn’t romantic enough, right? Throw in your luxurious wardrobe, snow, and twinkling Parisian lights, and it’s a bougie recipe for success. Don’t spend all your time just in Paris though — there are plenty of other relatively close sites to explore, such as Loire Valley or the Palace of Versailles.

Germany

It’s the place where Christmas practically originated! Between the magical Christkindlesmarkts, quaint villages, delicious food and drink, and majestic castles, you can’t go wrong with a romantic getaway holiday in Germany.

Iceland

Want to see some real Christmas lights this year? Your holiday will be more lit than ever when you travel to Reykjavik to see the aurora borealis (northern lights). Even though Iceland is obviously cold in the middle of winter, you can heat up in its many natural hot springs.

Italy

From Venice to Rome to the Amalfi Coast, what better time to visit Italy than at Christmas? If the above locations seem too cold for your tastes, then travel to Italy for a slightly warmer — but no less bougie — holiday season.

Stateside:

If you can’t or don’t want to go abroad for some reason, you can still find plenty of bougie Christmas locations in the states.

Fairbanks, Alaska

People generally visit Alaska in the summer, right? When the days are long and the weather only requires a light sweater instead of a parka? However, you could visit Fairbanks, Alaska, this Christmas for a bougie Christmas to remember — just think of soaking at Chena Hot Springs Resort or checking out the northern lights from your cabin.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Just think of it: you’re nestled in at a rustic cabin — but you have all the amenities and comfort you could ever need and you’re surrounded by the Grand Teton Mountain Range. You’ll make flannel look more bougie and sophisticated than ever, we’re sure.

Napa Valley, California

If snow really isn’t your thing but you’re still dreaming of a romantic holiday, why not jet on over to Napa Valley for wine tasting and Michelin-starred restaurants? (Psst: you’ll like it more than some stale cookies on the counter on Christmas Eve.)

New York City, New York

Let’s hear it for New York, New York! Catch some Broadway shows, the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, and ice skating in Central Park — just to name a few. There’s no shortage of fun, festive events in New York around Christmas.
