Must See Gift Idea: If you’re looking for jewelry for a loved one, then look no further than FSMNYC while you’re there. There’s something for everyone with their edgy meets trendy meets pretty style. The two and three finger rings ($70 and up) are great for your more daring loved ones and the stackable rings ($40-65) are less risky and almost guaranteed a crowd pleaser.
The Holiday Shops at Bryant Park
Sixth Ave. between 40th and 42nd Sts.
open through January 8th
Must See Gift Idea: When you walk into Wrecords By Monkey‘s holiday shop you may hear that “no good music was harmed in the making” of these great gifts. There’s a small chance that one of your favorite albums may have been used, but most likely you won’t care when you see how cool their signature cuffs made out of recycled vinyl records, designed with organic paint. They’ve recently expanded their line into other accessories, house wares and now iPhone vinyl skins ($14), which surely will be a hit (record) this season.
The Brooklyn Flea
1 Hanson Place (at Ashland Pl.), Fort Greene
open through the holidays, closed 12/29-30
Must See Gift Idea: Gnome Enterprises makes fun tees that can help you cross off just about everyone on your list in one stop. Kids especially will love the imaginative cartoons like a squid attacking the Brooklyn Bridge, a bear and tractor dueling and even PB&J as besties ($24 for kids and $28 for adults).
