Black Friday Gift Guide

Need some shopping inspiration this season? We have the ultimate guide to goods

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.

East Hampton Candle (courtesy of Matthew Izzo)

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.

Pendleton shirt (courtesy of Sugarcube)

Share the warmth with a buttoned-up plaid Pendleton shirt from the new Portland Collection at Sugar Cube.

Glass bubbles (courtesy of West Elm)

Pack for a weekend in the country with the old-school Stapleford Toggle Duffle Bag ($89) at Urban Outfitters.

Hanging planters also just got a lot sexier. Anything from the Shane Powers Hanging Glass Bubble Collection (starting at $9) from West Elm makes the perfect hostess gift.

Get ready for winter with a Wilderness Coat ($198) from Brooklyn Industries that brings puffy back – in a good way. The rugged coat is refined with skinny quilting and a tweed-wool blend.

Cashmere cable (courtesy of Ralph Lauren)

Pick up a gift set from Duross & Langel (starting at $16) full of soap, bath salts and body lotion.

Convert vinyl into digital files (courtesy of Ion Audio)

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.

Treat yourself to a stylish new holiday outfit from Boyd’s, like a fitted Paul Smith suit.

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.
