My Favorite Small Businesses
For fashion, I have a few favorite New York City boutiques that are perfect for finding any holiday gifts and to shop on small business Saturday. However, the one that is my absolute favorite is Lexie located on 19th East 9th Street Between Fifth avenue and University. I love the hand selected and curated items that the shop carries. Plus the boutique’s luxurious atmosphere, from the chandelier to fur carpet, makes me want to browse for hours.
For spas treatments, check out Higher DOSE! It is an NYC local infrared spa that infuses the healing, meditative, and detox properties of infrared with music. Each individual season is $45 and there is a deal going on this weekend!
For toddlers, I am really loving these cute headbands and matching leggings from New York base designer van der Harten Kids. At an affordable price, they will make your little one look like a superstar. You can shop online through Esty, making it convenient for anyone to support this small business.
For workouts, check out IMAXShift where you can take a spin class in front of an IMAX theater. Located in Dumbo at 127 Plymouth Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201. You can easily walk outside after class and find a plethora of cute cafes to unwind.
For Drinks, take a look at The Last Word. It is a speakeasy located behind a hardware store in Astoria-Ditmars. The small business is known for their delicious crafted cocktails and cool ambiance.

Host gifts are a great way to say thank you for providing a wonderful dinner, evening, or planning a gift gathering for you and friends. There is no need to splurge on the gift either, a bottle of wine, sparkling cider, or your favorite butter cookies will do the trick!
Here are three tips for picking the perfect host gift:
