staff picks 2013 | sarah and her brooklyn love

“My Brooklyn love continues with my favorite holiday card from the PostScript Brooklyn line. All my friends and family will be receiving the Montague Street holiday card – blue skyline, green watertower and all greetings one could ever hope to send: laughter, joy, peace, glad hearts, happiness, cheerful spirits. So happy to be sending true Brooklyn love to all my peeps near and far.”

staff picks 2013 | sarah and her ornaments

Next up is Sarah’s selection: “I like to start the holiday season off with a “Ding! to local handmade ornaments!” The Great Lakes, a Brooklyn based company, tops the charts this year with wooden hand painted ornaments. For the more traditional, a wooden bell packaged in a cute muslin drawstring bag can add some music to your own Christmas tree. For that creative unique friend, I am leaning toward the die cut wooden arrow painted with a neon orange point and accented with baby blue stripes. My all-time favorite is “The Slice of Life” ornament – actual slices of tree branches hand painted creating a cycle wheel of beauty.”

staff picks 2013 | melinda and her confetti and cabs

Melinda can’t decide. Here’s her holiday card picks:

“I picked two! First up is this box of confetti covered holiday cards from Sugar Paper Los Angeles. I’m especially in love with the pink envelope and gold foil printed liner … Second, I chose these NYC-inspired Dear Hancock cards. A snowman on top of a taxi – it doesn’t get more New York than that!”

staff picks 2013 | jess and her lacroix

Jess’s journal obsession:

“I have been head over heels for these Christian Lacroix Papier notebooks since the day they arrived in the shop. As a notebook fanatic, I would be thrilled to unwrap one of these guys this holiday season, and I’m pretty confident I’m not alone. Grab one for your favorite writer, poet, or list-maker. Oh, and throw in a Le Pen – they’re my fave!”

staff picks 2013 | melinda and her humans

Here’s Melinda on the gift she couldn’t wait for…

“I had been a fan of the Humans of New York blog for years when I heard the book was coming out. Of course, I couldn’t wait to order it for the shop! Brandon Stanton’s photographs and interviews are fascinating, funny, inspiring, and touching. They paint a beautiful picture of New York that locals will love and visitors will certainly appreciate.”
