Nathan Gelgud custom-drawn dust jackets, $220--$400, at In God We Trust

Shops

In God We Trust
Shana Tabor's tastemaking store is so glutted with genius gift ideas, you could easily tick off every name on your list. Limited-edition In God We Trust & The Hill-Side ties and scarves in muted chambray or loud plaid ($80) appeal to the modern dandy, while book lovers will get a kick out of local artist Nathan Gelgud's custom-drawn dust jackets ($220--$400). Or, snag your most special lady an In God We Trust brass wishbone cuff ($80), plus one of Bed-Stuy woodworker Eric Ervin's darling jewelry boxes built from salvaged wood and old hardcover books ($120). 70 Greenpoint Ave between Franklin and West Sts (718-389-3545, ingodwetrustnyc.com)

Old Hollywood
More than 80 percent of the jewelry stocked at Tiffany Porter's spacious boutique is made in New York, including Anomaly's new Golden Girls (plus Stan!) sterling silver tribute necklaces ($140). From farther-flung destinations come hand-beaded statement collars by Colombian designer Sara Valencia Moreno ($80), dead-stock vintage cigarette holders ($8) and elegantly morbid skull-and-crossbones decanters ($68) with matching glasses ($20 each). 99 Franklin St between Greenpoint Ave and Milton St (718-389-0837, oldhollywoodmoxie.com)

Zoe's Beauty Products Salon & Spa
This neighborly beauty spot sells all the big names (Burt's Bees, Davines, American Crew), plus a few you may not be familiar with—like phenomenal hair-care products from German brand Schwarzkopf ($16--$25). Spoil your nail-obsessed bestie with Q.R.S. Beauty's Art Paint neon polishes with extra-skinny brushes ($2 each), and buy your glammiest girlfriends Red Cherry's false eye lashes laced with colorful plumes ($3). For $2 extra, a store clerk will arrange your purchases in a pretty holiday gift basket. 119 Greenpoint Ave between Franklin St and Manhattan Ave (718-383-7400, zoesbeautyproducts.com)

Pit stops

Vamos al Tequila
This six-month-old, Pueblan-style taqueria is giving Papacitos a run for its dinero. Toasty chips and chunky salsa set the mood at husband-and-wife Cirilo Luna and Joaquina Flores's casual eatery, but it's the humongous burritos ($10--$13), loaded with high-quality meats (chorizo, steak, chicken) and flanked by mountains of guacamole and pico de gallo, that really seal the deal. 162 Franklin St between Java and Kent Sts (718-383-0808)

Honey Spa
Since you've been so good to everyone on your list, reward yourself with a mini indulgence from this pristine, affordable spot. Honey offers all-the-rage CND Shellac manicures ($22) that cost half of what you'd pay in Manhattan and last for upwards of two weeks, as well as plain old polish jobs ($12). The fact that there's just a single pair of manicure stations might mean a bit of a wait, but also that you'll receive all the personal attention that your heart of gold deserves. 592 Manhattan Ave between Driggs and Nassau Aves (718-389-0070, honeyspaofny.com)
