The holidays are just around the corner, and we’re willing to bet you haven’t even thought about your shopping list yet. We don’t blame you: Gift hunting can be daunting. Once you schedule the time to search for actually good gifts, you then have to deal with the added stress of combating the holiday crowds. Yeah, it’s no surprise so many of us turn to our laptops instead of our city’s storefronts to nab presents for our tribe. But chin up, Scrooges! We live in one of the world’s greatest cities for retail, and there are many benefits to hitting some of New York’s best stores to choose a little something (or big, if you’re feeling generous) for everyone on your nice list. In case you need convincing, we’ve selected awesome, go-to shops filled to the brim with fun and unique presents.
