So many holiday markets and pop-ups, so little time. But this weekend, we’ve narrowed down the three best places to shop for great gifts, all in one ‘hood.

Brooklyn Artisans Christmas Market

There are plenty of great holiday markets in Brooklyn: Artists and Fleas, Brooklyn Pop-up holiday market, to name a few. But if you’re searching for new holiday offerings or looking to French-ify your life, then the Brooklyn Artisans Christmas market curated by French Morning is the flea for you.

For the next three weekends before Christmas, check out this bazaar, boasting products from either Brooklyn-based or French craftsman, artisans and designers. Highlights include scents from Atelier Cologne, pottery by David Herbstman and antique jewelry from Thistle and Bess.

St. Pauls Church, 234 Congress St at Court St, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. Sat 6 10am–7pm, Sun 7 11am–6pm.

UrbanGlass Open Studios event

If you would rather exchange hand-made gifts with your crafty friends and family this year, UrbanGlass is hosting an Open Studio event where you can create a holiday ornament or snowman of your very own. Tickets cost $60 for a half-hour glassblowing lesson on Saturday, but the demonstrations are free! There will also be activities for kids, like ornament glass fusing and bead-stringing with handmade glass beads.

Coral & Tusk holiday sale

From Christmas tree ornaments to cute stocking stuffers, this sale in Williamsburg is offering great deals this weekend.
