Hey everyone! It’s that time of the year… the holidays, the gifts and people rushing everywhere to get them! The Union Square Christmas market has been up for a few weeks, and it’s a great place to go for presents.


It’s open everyday of the week, and you can find gifts for everyone here. In fact, I recommend going to this place when you have no clue of what to get to that person. I’m sure you’ll see something that will spark a gift idea. You can find food, jewelry and lots of original artworks and ideas. Let me show you a few that caught my eye.

I loved the “hanging poems.” These mobiles have all the words of a poem in different pieces. It all comes packaged in a little box, and I think it can make a great gift!


There are several places in this market where you can find puppets. While they do look kind of creepy, I think these are great for children. At least it brought me back some memories of my childhood and how I loved bringing puppets to life!


Finally, I loved finding out about City Shuffle. They sell card decks, which contain 52 different cards with a different restaurant/bar on it. Each card has a $10 gift certificate for that restaurant. How cool! And it’s only $20! I actually got the “Dinner’s Deck” for one of my friends. She’s always talking about food places in the city and I thought this was the perfect gift for her. They also have a version for drinks. You can check it out at cityshuffle.com.



Good luck with your gift shopping! Thanks for reading and see you soon!
