As a senior fashion writer for FashionEdits and a resident of hipsterville Williamsburg, which was recently named the best shopping hood by GQ magazine, I’m lucky enough to be in-the-know for all things fashion and shopping. With the holiday shopping season upon us I pulled together the Brooklyn Girl’s Shopping Holiday Gift Guide. ‘Tis the season for shopping and cheer!
Where to shop for your best friend or sister:
Norbu Bijoux, 232A Bedford Avenue,Brooklyn, NY 11211
For the perfect piece of handcrafted jewelry from delicate necklaces, unique earrings, and one-of-a-kind gifts, stop by Norbu Bijoux. The gold, silver, and metal pieces make for perfect gifts for your sister or best friend.
Where to shop for your boss or co-worker (and yourself):
Ruby and Scarlett, 265 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211
One of the newest boutiques to hit Williamsburg is Ruby and Scarlett. Select one of its many scarves and gloves options for your boss or co-worker. While you are there pick up the Parker dress in champagne gold as a treat for yourself as the perfect holiday-party hopping cocktail dress or the perfect pair of black skinny jeans and beige embroidered top.
Where to shop for your mom:
Catbird, 219 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211
Looking for a special holiday gift for your mom? Catbird has a vast array of candles, accessories, holiday cards, chic clothing, and ornaments. We recommend the Tocca Beauty Hand Crème Set and the Mullein and Sparrow Pink Himalayan Bath Salts.
Where to shop for your guy or brother:
Brooklyn Denim Co., 85 N. 3rd Street, No.101, Brooklyn, NY, 11249
If you want to really win over your beau’s heart this holiday season then stop by Brooklyn Denim Co. for the ideal gift for your sweetie. If your guy is a bit on the rugged side then buy him a black leather jacket to match his style, like the Schott 141 Café Racer jacket. For the more casual cutie then opt for a Levi’s Crew sweatshirt or a pair of AG Matchbox Slim Straight jeans.
Where to shop for your dad:
In God We Trust, 129 Bedford Ave, New York, NY 11211
Need to get a gift this holiday season that’s sure to bring a smile to your dad’s face? Then head over to In God We Trust for the FW13 Silk Neck Tie in black and the FW13 Cotton Bow Tie in tan for the ideal gift for dad. To really up his fashion game, get him the Cotton Twill Blazer in navy.
