Downtown Brooklyn has everything the most ambitious holiday shopper could ever wish for, and our DTBK insiders (DBP staff!) have again put their heads together to bring you recommendations from their favorite spots. If you’re wondering what to get your friends, family, or that lucky Secret Santa recipient, here are some ideas to get you crossing those names off your list.
For the home

A coffee subscription?!
Give the gift of never running out of coffee: a coffee bean subscription from Coffee Project. Not only can you choose delivery frequency, but you can also choose the size of the grind and quantity per delivery. You know the coffee lover in your life better than we do — gift them a subscription plan that’s perfectly suited to their caffeine habits.
For the fashionista
One-of-a-kind flaming skull jacket

Winter wool fedora
This 1920s-styled khaki-colored fedora from Privélege at City Point Brooklyn is the perfect addition to any Christmas or New Years’ outfit. Not only will the recipient of this gift look stylish, but the satin inner lining and grosgrain ribbon band will make sure their noggin stays warm for the winter.
For the wine sommelier and cocktail connoisseur

The holidays are complete with a bottle of bubbly to mark the occasion. Give the wine aficionado in your life this bottle of ‘Prestige’ Brut Champagne from Wright & Goebel to celebrate this year’s accomplishments. It pairs well with a Christmas fried chicken dinner!
