Holiday shopping can be a huge stressor, especially if you will be seeing a lot of friends and family over the holidays. If you forgot to grab something during those Black Friday deals for someone on your list, or are suddenly seeing someone you didn’t expect, there are plenty of great gifts you can get in local New Haven shops for those last minute present needs. Here are some tips for getting that last minute shopping done for our 360 State Street residents.
For that person you know who loves to read, there are plenty of options in terms of gifts you can get besides a gift card to Barnes and Noble. If you are trying for something a little more creative, reading accessories are great and something every book lover needs! Book lights are perfect if you know someone who reads before bed or reads often during nighttime travel. Other great reading accessories include lap desks, book ends, themed bookmarks and a comfy pillow for reading in bed! You can pick several of these options up right here in New Haven too! Visit Atticus Bookstore & Cafe or Never Ending Books for last minute shopping. You can also head over to the local Barnes and Noble store, located on Broadway.
For the artist in your life, you can never go wrong with some brand new canvases and a new set of paints and brushes! This is a simple and easy to acquire last minute gift for anyone who loves to draw and paint. It also is a thoughtful gift, relating to one of their hobbies. You can visit Artist Craftsman or Hull’s Art Supply just minutes from 360 State Street to grab some supplies and put together a nice gift package! You can also schedule a potter session at Art Plus Studio, also right here in New Haven!
Music is wonderful and makes the perfect gift during the holidays! Stop over at The Foundry Music Company on Audubon Street to take a look and what they can offer for music lovers.
