Thursday November 29, 2018

SHARE

One of the exceptional things about our neighborhood is the number of specialty stores and one-of-a-kind shops located here—places where you can find special gifts you won’t easily find anywhere else. If you’re shopping for an especially meaningful gift this holiday season, NoMad is the place to do it. There are dozens of such shops in NoMad, such as Todd Snyder, Cocktail Kingdom, Opening Ceremony, Dover Street Market, Antique Showplace, Sebastian Grey and Marimekko, but here we are highlighting five treasure troves where you might start your hunt for that special something for that special someone.

Jung Lee

To label this a home and hospitality boutique is to vastly understate the case. This is a one-of-a-kind home and lifestyle design destination, birthed from the creativity of one of the country’s premier event designers, Jung Lee. Here you’ll find elegant serveware, dinnerware, hospitality items, home décor, and more, curated and displayed in an inviting showroom that feels more like a home than shop.  Jung Lee’s eye is masterful and in one glorious store you’ll find a special collection of items you’d have to scour the city for.

The Old Print Shop

If you are shopping for someone who is interested in Americana artwork, vintage graphics, historic engravings, or antiquarian maps, check out The Old Print Shop on Lexington Avenue.

Manhattan Saddlery

A tack shop in New York City? Absolutely. In fact, Manhattan Saddlery is the only tack shop in NYC, and it’s right here in NoMad. Shop for the finest riding clothes, footwear, helmets, grooming supplies, crops, whips, girths, bridles, and of course, saddles—basically all things equestrian. (Except the horse.). It’s not for just for riders either, there are exquisitely made shoes, jackets and accessories anyone would be glad to own.

Eataly

Themed around old-country Italy, this combination grocery store, cooking supply shop, and international food court is a destination any time of year. In the spirit of the season, Eataly has even set up a special Holiday Market at its nearby cooking school, offering themed gift boxes and daily complimentary tastings. Or, perhaps you can pick up an unusual combination of preserves and jams (including pink grapefruit and sweet pepper), an extra fine olive oil or a unique vinegar that you know that someone on your list wouldn’t buy for themselves. If your loved ones love Italian food or cooking, you might be able to check off your entire list just by going here first.
