Black Friday Gift Guide
As hoards of Americans rise and shine early today to get the deep discounts on Black Friday, we wanted to round up some of the best gift ideas at some of our favorite local shops.
Stop by Matthew Izzo’s outpost at Christmas Village in Love Park for jewelry or a candle. Even if you can’t escape this season, Izzo’s East Hampton Candle ($30) is a perfect blend of orchid, musk, bergamot and patchouli that will bring that vacation feeling into your home.
Spruce up your kitchen with a Bodum Mug Tree ($32) from Open House, perfect for city dwellers who may be short on space. Or make that bottle of wine for your friend’s holiday party look even better with the reusable BYO One Bottle Tote ($15). Re-gifting never looked so good.
Obsessed with the new fairy tale shows on television this season like Once Upon a Time and Grimm? Pick up The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm, an elaborate new coffee table book from Taschen ($40), for kids of all ages.
Pick up a gift set from Duross & Langel (starting at $16) full of soap, bath salts and body lotion.
Help someone convert their old vinyl into digital audio files using Ion Audio’s iProfile LP-to-Apple iPod Conversion Turntable ($200) from Best Buy.
Don’t forget Fido this season with a cabled cashmere dog sweater by Ralph Lauren ($95) at the Bellevue. The design comes in three colors: red, black and white.
Or if you’d like to make a bigger impact, donate to a local LGBT charity in someone’s name this year. Or buy from a local artist at local galleries or Etsy.
