For your lady or the little ones, go to Pink Olive in either Park Slope or the East Village. They have a fantastic mixture of cards, books, bags, art, jewelry, stuffed animals, kid’s clothes, candles and soaps. It’s the perfect one-stop-shop for smaller, more thoughtful gifts with a lovable sense of humor.I really like the “Anatomy of Love” print, but the vast selection of Jellycat stuffed animals have put so many smiles on and wiped so many tears off my three-year-old’s sweet face that I just have to shout out a huge “THANK YOU” to the good citizens that run sweet Pink Olive.
Buying a home is an emotional roller coaster and some serious relaxing is paramount after you’re closed and moved in. One way to relax is with a great new coffee table book and a fabulous glass of wine.
For these buyers who love food and America, we found this phenomenal book showcasing classic American menu design at the Taschen Store at 107 Greene Street in Soho. They have an amazing collection of beautifully designed books on art, architecture, food, photography, and sex. Go get lost there for an hour and spend some money.
And for something special in the wine department, go to Chambers Street Wines at 148 Chambers Street in Tribeca. They have an incredible selection of old, rare, and dusty vintages. Their collection is curated from wine enthusiast from all over the world. This time we went for the 1990 Dominus Estate Cabernet. Voluptuous, multi-dimensional and magical.
