A superior shopping destination any time of year, New York can cover everyone on your gift list with its diverse range of stores, markets, and pop-ups. From feminist finds to museum gift shops, here’s where to go Christmas shopping in New York City.
Stuff your stockings (and your mouths) at Dylan’s Candy Bar, a boutique candy store Willy Wonka would approve of. Over 5,000 kinds of candy glaze—we mean, grace—the shelves here, granting you your pick between Belgian chocolate bars, retro candies, and big-ticket items such as chocolate-covered cheesecake bites and pre-assembled gingerbread house kits.
Shop for gifts and groceries at Zabar’s, an Upper West Side specialty store known as much for its delicious lox as its New York City-themed kits, baskets, and boxes. The “Morning Basics” basket from this uptown icon will have Christmas Day breakfast covered, while the “New York Goodies” box is guaranteed to delight any homesick celebrants. For a show-stopping snack, the individually wrapped biscotti, which comes in a handmade jar from one of Tuscany’s most famous villages, is as lovely to look at as it is to eat.
Celebrate the women on your gift list at Bulletin, a feminist find boasting an all-female team and products exclusively from female entrepreneurs. Here, you’ll snag gold cuffs stamped with the reminder to “fight like a girl,” sports bras emblazoned with cheeky sayings, quirky pins, and more which has hitherto only been sold online. And the best part? Bulletin allows you to consume for a cause, as 10% of all store profits are donated to the local Planned Parenthood.
