By now, if you have not gathered those presents for under the tree of around the menorah, time is almost up. Here are our suggestions for those last minute gifts.
Bryant Park’s Winter Village, stays open until January 5, 2017. This is one of the prettiest and most centrally-located holiday markets. There are more than 100 small stalls offering one-of-a-kind items including winter clothing, sweaters, hats and mittens, hand crafted bags, jewelry, decorative goods, local foods, and more. There’s something for everyone – adults, kids and even pets! 40th to 42nd Street between 5th and 6th Avenue
Grand Central Holiday Fair, closes today so possibly sales. It is indoors, so you’ll keep warmer while checking out the 76 vendor stalls offering a wonderful array of holiday gifts including art, clothing for adults and children, handbags, jewelry and accessories for men and women, hand-made candles, bath and body items, collectible toys and holiday items. Grand Central Terminal, Vanderbilt Hall (42nd St. and Park Ave.)
Union Square Holiday Market, closes today so possibly sales. Downtown, with a funky vibe. Over 100 vendors fill the park and you will find truly unique items here, many with New York themes. Past years we’ve found such items as hand-blown glass housewares; bags and accessories made from recycled plastic (eco-friendly!), always lots of handmade jewelry, Tibetan crafts and more! And of course you shouldn’t shop on an empty stomach so try some of the sweet and savory treats or a hot apple cider! Closes at 4 pm December 24th. Union Square at 14th Street.
