UPDATE: Christmas is over, but we're not ready to give up the festivities just — these tunes will help keep your spirits high.
Ever heard that song "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas?" Well, we're sorry. Let's make sure that never happens again. Department stores can do musical sneak attacks during the holiday season—you know, when you pop in for a gift card and leave with "The Twelve Days of Christmas" running amok in your head. Luckily, our favorite boutiques tend to entertain shoppers with infinitely cooler jams.
That's why we've tapped the folks behind top shops Sofia, Cityblue, and more, to find out what they're jiving to all season long. So, crack open our Spotify playlist, crank up the volume, and carol along to jingles from Johnny Cash, Frank Sinatra, Madonna, and the like. We promise: These songs are guaranteed to get you in the holiday-shopping spirit—not desperate to get out of the store.
