According to Chicago-based market research firm Lab42, 61 percent of holiday shoppers plan to research that perfect gift through their social networks before they pull out their wallets.

That's a lot of digitally reliant festive buying, which inspired me to scour the Web to find the most unique ways brands are using social media to cash in during the holiday season.

And who knows, these campaigns may even provide inspiration for your own company's seasonal social media efforts.

Gap’s "12 Days of Joy" Photo Contest invites fans to upload their favorite holiday pictures along with captions in order to enter to win a $500 gift card.

The page also offers a "Joy It Up" mixtape of new holiday music.

The winners will receive gift cards for up to $2,500 and help direct $10,000 to $25,000 in donations to charities.

Apple products appear on display at Macy's flagship store in New York, Friday, Oct. 14, 2016.

Macy's launched an Apple shop Friday at its Herald Square store, the first U.S. department store with a hub devoted to the brand.

The shop features a range of products including iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, and the new Nike-branded Apple watch.

Staffed by Apple associates, it's on the main floor in the heart of the busy cosmetics and fragrance area.

NEW YORK AP -- Customers at Macy's flagship store in New York will be able to wander over from eyeliner to iPads.

"This is one of the most sought-after products," Terry Lundgren, the outgoing CEO of Macy's, told The Associated Press.

Kevin Hart might be the first guy you go to for a laugh, but he’s typically not the first guy you’d go to for home decor decisions.

But the star of the upcoming film Night School appears to be pretty skilled at the latter as well, judging by the tiny house he helped put together.

Located smack-dab in the middle of Manhattan in Herald Square, the house is a cozy getaway that is trumped in size by Hart’s mansion-like home in California but provides plenty of comfort in its own right.

Instead, Booking.com is giving away a chance to stay overnight in the house; it will open up Thursday, September 27.

The lucky guest will also get a pair of tickets to Hart’s sold-out stand-up show, part of his Irresponsible Tour, set to take place that evening at Madison Square Park.

Lucky guests will also get dinner at Lambs Club, Hart’s favorite restaurant in New York City.

Over 8.5 million people live in New York City, which means public spaces that allow for walking, biking, and lounging  are indispensable.

And the city is always looking to improve them.Every year, the NYC Public Design Commission recognizes outstanding public project designs, both planned and built.

In late November, after reviewing hundreds of submissions, the commission announced the 2016 winners, which include parks, plazas, a police precinct, and waterfront docks.The competition, established in 1983, follows the city's efforts to make the city more pedestrian-friendly.

Under former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Manhattan banned cars from parts of Times Square and Herald Square and designated them only for foot traffic.

Within the last decade, NYC has also built 400 more miles of bike lanes.The winners of the competition, called the Awards for Excellence in Design, encourage that vision of human-centric urban design.Check out some of the designs below.

Earlier this month, a Long Island City landlord launched a protest against Amazon after it announced plans to pull its HQ2 project from Queens, New York.

But two protesters told Patch that they were paid for the gig.

Earlier this month, a Long Island City landlord launched a protest against Amazon after the company announced plans to pull its HQ2 project from Queens, New York.

Sam Musovic, who owns apartments close to where Amazon had proposed building its headquarters, told Business Insider that the news about HQ2 being canceled was "devastating" and that he and a group of angry Queens residents would be protesting at an Amazon Books store near Herald Square on February 15.

Macy’s unveiled Story today, a new type of store format in 36 retail locations, spread out over 15 states.

The roll out comes about a year after Macy’s acquired Story, a retail concept that focuses on a particular theme and changes up the products and layout every few months.

Staying true to its roots, this first iteration of Story is dubbed “Color Story,” and runs from now through May 26.

The following month, a new theme rolls out.

“The discovery-led, narrative experience of Story gives new customers a fresh reason to visit our stores and gives the current Macy’s customer even more reason to come back again and again throughout the year,” said Jeff Gennette, chairman and CEO of Macy’s in a statement.

Each Story concept takes up about 1,500 square feet in Macy’s stores, except for the flagship location in Herald Square, New York, which is using more than 7,500 square feet between the first and mezzanine floor.

While some local and state politicians who objected to the deal are celebrating the news, groups of residents and local landlords are furious.

One landlord, who said he invested large amounts of money into property in the area to attract Amazon workers, is leading a boycott at an Amazon Books store in New York on Friday.

A Long Island City landlord has launched a boycott effort against Amazon after the e-commerce giant announced it had pulled out of its New York City HQ2 project on Thursday.

Sam Musovic, who owns apartments close to Amazon's proposed headquarters in Queens, said in a press release on Friday that he and a group of angry Queens residents would be protesting at an Amazon Books store near Herald Square in New York on Friday.

"I thought I was going to be the happiest guy on the planet," he said.

On hearing the news, he shifted his focus to investing in the Long Island City locations, putting in new kitchens and bathrooms, believing that he would get this money back when more people move to the area.

 The miniature lights that we are so knowledgeable about today are wired in specifically similarly as our grandparent's lights were-in series!

This indicates that if one heads out, they all must go out.

What is different concerning today's lights is the truth that each little light bulb has a shunt tool in it, that avoids the string from going dark because of the failing of several lamps.Removal of a lamp will certainly still trigger the string to go dark ... Montgomery Wards inadvertently offered the American public two popular Xmas prizes: the bubble light as well as Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer.

It ended up being the largest selling Christmas light in history as much as that time.Excitement About Christmas Light RemovalAnother choice for outside illumination is the "mini," which sets you back less and eats less power than the traditional exterior light string.

As legacy retailers struggle to figure out what will bring consumers through their doors, upstarts like b8ta are hitting on ways to help how brands can work with stores.

On Nov. 15, b8ta is expanding its reach and rolling out Forum, a shop with rotating sustainable and ethical fashion and lifestyle brands in Los Angeles.

Forum will showcase more than 25 different brands and use RFID technology so that companies can adjust fitting rooms to its aesthetic.

For Phillip Raub, co-founder and president of b8ta, Forum is a stepping stone to give brands more opportunities to reach consumers across the company’s platform.

“A store is becoming a billboard for that brand.”

B8ta, which originally started with a store in 2015, expanded into offering retail-as-a-service (RAAS) to brands last year, which Macy’s uses to power The Market @ Macy’s concept.

Miles of underground track shrouded in darkness, littered with abandoned stations and secret passageways — it's a common object of desire for the urban explorers among us.

It costs the same $2.75 as any subway ride.

It arrived about 10 minutes ahead of its 1:03 p.m. departure time — plenty of time for photos!

Just like any New York subway, the "Shopper's Special" (as it was called in 2016) rolls into the station at high speed:

Since the vintage subway line runs during the holidays, it's festooned with Christmas wreaths on the back and front:

While the train was stopped, people dressed in anachronistic clothing posed for photos next to the antique train cars:

These changes are especially apparent in archive photos recently uncovered by the New York Public Library.

The collection contains prints from 1935 to 1936 by Berenice Abbott, a photographer who documented NYC's transformation over the previous century in her series "Changing New York."

Comparing her photos to Google Street View images reveals how the city's public spaces have changed up to today.

"The bones of the city are still there, but we're good at adapting it for what we want."

In 1939, the tracks in front of the courthouse migrated underground with the creation of the subway, bringing more light to the street and increasing the value of the nearby real estate.

Macy's is taking a cue from Instagram-friendly phenomenons like the Museum of Ice Cream and Rosé Mansion with a new pop-up concept designed to increase foot traffic.

The store, called Story, features a curated selection of products based on rotating themes.

On a recent afternoon at Macy's, a young woman visiting the Story pop-up struck a sultry pose in front of various displays — beams draped in fuzzy red velvet, a pile of colorful inner tubes — as her shopping partner snapped photos, presumably for her to post on Instagram later.

Though the store was buzzing with people, very few appeared to actually consider purchasing the items on display as they browsed, instead taking photos along the way.

In May, the department store reported stronger-than-expected performance for the first quarter of 2019, with same-store sales increasing by 0.7%.

Taking a cue from the success of social media phenomenons like the Museum of Ice Cream and Rosé Mansion, Macy's saw an opportunity to build its own Instagram-friendly experience with the help of Story, the New York City-based boutique it acquired in 2018.

These changes are especially apparent in archive photos recently uncovered by the New York Public Library.

The collection contains prints from 1935 to 1936 by Berenice Abbott, a photographer who documented NYC's transformation over the previous century in her series "Changing New York."

Comparing her photos to Google Street View images reveals how the city's public spaces have changed up to today.

"The bones of the city are still there, but we're good at adapting it for what we want."

In 1939, the tracks in front of the courthouse migrated underground with the creation of the subway, bringing more light to the street and increasing the value of the nearby real estate.

According to Chicago-based market research firm Lab42, 61 percent of holiday shoppers plan to research that perfect gift through their social networks before they pull out their wallets.

That's a lot of digitally reliant festive buying, which inspired me to scour the Web to find the most unique ways brands are using social media to cash in during the holiday season.

And who knows, these campaigns may even provide inspiration for your own company's seasonal social media efforts.

Gap’s "12 Days of Joy" Photo Contest invites fans to upload their favorite holiday pictures along with captions in order to enter to win a $500 gift card.

The page also offers a "Joy It Up" mixtape of new holiday music.

The winners will receive gift cards for up to $2,500 and help direct $10,000 to $25,000 in donations to charities.

Kevin Hart might be the first guy you go to for a laugh, but he’s typically not the first guy you’d go to for home decor decisions.

But the star of the upcoming film Night School appears to be pretty skilled at the latter as well, judging by the tiny house he helped put together.

Located smack-dab in the middle of Manhattan in Herald Square, the house is a cozy getaway that is trumped in size by Hart’s mansion-like home in California but provides plenty of comfort in its own right.

Instead, Booking.com is giving away a chance to stay overnight in the house; it will open up Thursday, September 27.

The lucky guest will also get a pair of tickets to Hart’s sold-out stand-up show, part of his Irresponsible Tour, set to take place that evening at Madison Square Park.

Lucky guests will also get dinner at Lambs Club, Hart’s favorite restaurant in New York City.

Earlier this month, a Long Island City landlord launched a protest against Amazon after it announced plans to pull its HQ2 project from Queens, New York.

But two protesters told Patch that they were paid for the gig.

Earlier this month, a Long Island City landlord launched a protest against Amazon after the company announced plans to pull its HQ2 project from Queens, New York.

Sam Musovic, who owns apartments close to where Amazon had proposed building its headquarters, told Business Insider that the news about HQ2 being canceled was "devastating" and that he and a group of angry Queens residents would be protesting at an Amazon Books store near Herald Square on February 15.

While Musovic was present and vocal at the event, it seems that the group of Queens residents who joined him were not who the public thought they were.

Macy’s unveiled Story today, a new type of store format in 36 retail locations, spread out over 15 states.

The roll out comes about a year after Macy’s acquired Story, a retail concept that focuses on a particular theme and changes up the products and layout every few months.

Staying true to its roots, this first iteration of Story is dubbed “Color Story,” and runs from now through May 26.

The following month, a new theme rolls out.

“The discovery-led, narrative experience of Story gives new customers a fresh reason to visit our stores and gives the current Macy’s customer even more reason to come back again and again throughout the year,” said Jeff Gennette, chairman and CEO of Macy’s in a statement.

Each Story concept takes up about 1,500 square feet in Macy’s stores, except for the flagship location in Herald Square, New York, which is using more than 7,500 square feet between the first and mezzanine floor.

 The miniature lights that we are so knowledgeable about today are wired in specifically similarly as our grandparent's lights were-in series!

This indicates that if one heads out, they all must go out.

What is different concerning today's lights is the truth that each little light bulb has a shunt tool in it, that avoids the string from going dark because of the failing of several lamps.Removal of a lamp will certainly still trigger the string to go dark ... Montgomery Wards inadvertently offered the American public two popular Xmas prizes: the bubble light as well as Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer.

It ended up being the largest selling Christmas light in history as much as that time.Excitement About Christmas Light RemovalAnother choice for outside illumination is the "mini," which sets you back less and eats less power than the traditional exterior light string.

The original area for the 1947 flick, "Wonder on 34th Street," was the New York Macy's in Herald Square.

However, for the remake in 1994, Macy's refused to participate, so the fictional Cole's was created.Some Known Incorrect Statements About Nc Christmas LightsJingle Bells was originally a track regarding Thanksgiving in 1857.

Miles of underground track shrouded in darkness, littered with abandoned stations and secret passageways — it's a common object of desire for the urban explorers among us.

It costs the same $2.75 as any subway ride.

It arrived about 10 minutes ahead of its 1:03 p.m. departure time — plenty of time for photos!

Just like any New York subway, the "Shopper's Special" (as it was called in 2016) rolls into the station at high speed:

Since the vintage subway line runs during the holidays, it's festooned with Christmas wreaths on the back and front:

While the train was stopped, people dressed in anachronistic clothing posed for photos next to the antique train cars:

Macy's is taking a cue from Instagram-friendly phenomenons like the Museum of Ice Cream and Rosé Mansion with a new pop-up concept designed to increase foot traffic.

The store, called Story, features a curated selection of products based on rotating themes.

On a recent afternoon at Macy's, a young woman visiting the Story pop-up struck a sultry pose in front of various displays — beams draped in fuzzy red velvet, a pile of colorful inner tubes — as her shopping partner snapped photos, presumably for her to post on Instagram later.

Though the store was buzzing with people, very few appeared to actually consider purchasing the items on display as they browsed, instead taking photos along the way.

In May, the department store reported stronger-than-expected performance for the first quarter of 2019, with same-store sales increasing by 0.7%.

Taking a cue from the success of social media phenomenons like the Museum of Ice Cream and Rosé Mansion, Macy's saw an opportunity to build its own Instagram-friendly experience with the help of Story, the New York City-based boutique it acquired in 2018.
