Marigay McKee and Rebecca Taylor On Holiday Plans

On Holiday
Who says you can’t buy presents for yourself? The holidays are all about giving, and that should include a personal treat, too. Think everything from vacations to personal trainers and technology upgrades. Here, designers and executives share their indulgences.

Marigay McKee, President, Saks Fifth Avenue
“Having time off to be with family is always a treat for me during the holidays. Of course, a little shopping is always fun. A few days in the snow with my kids for ski and après-ski is in the cards. Vail, here we come!”

Kristina Blahnik, Managing Director, Manolo Blahnik International
“I will be transporting myself to the Philippines to see the eighth wonder of the world — the Banaue Rice Terraces — a 9-hour drive from Manila.”

David Kahan, CEO, Birkenstock USA
“I’m going to buy myself an iPhone. Believe it or not, I’m one of the last holdouts with a Blackberry. I’m the only one in my entire company still using one. I tried the iPhone a year ago and returned it after three days — I was so frustrated with no keypad, but the time has come for me to suck it up.”

Rebecca Taylor, Designer
“I plan on treating myself with a personal-trainer package this holiday season. I find exercise really allows me to be more relaxed and helps me stay focused throughout the day. Plus, it keeps me fit.”
