Shop All Night

Ok, it's not like you haven't been shopping, you just haven't been doing it for other people. Here's a couple little gift ideas to be found on 34th Street:

Daffy's seventh floor by the registers for some handsome cuff links, wallets, and hats for your guys. Also, the plaid Calvin Klein bathrobes are around $20 and cozy soft. The jewelry on the sixth floor for the ladies is also worth a look.

It's called Macy's, gentlemen, and go right up to the sixth floor, take a deep breath and ask a salesclerk for help. Everyone loves lingerie, and you'll both benefit so it's worth any embarrassment you may briefly suffer. Good news, I was up there this morning between 9-10am and was practically alone. Look for Betsey Johnson intimates, the Jenni boy shorts, and for comfort, the Nautica plush robes for $67.

Le Chateau has nice hats. Look for the English riding cap and the plaid menswear hat, around $20.

Forever 21 is full of cute and inexpensive accessories on the 2nd floor. Look for the mod red shoulder bag and the wooden bangles.

Get a silk necktie with sequins trimming the bottom at Banana Republic, a store that is also a great source for scarves. And look for the bowl full of belts by the dressing rooms. Dig out the super narrow black belt with a silver catch for $20.

At Zara get your fashionista the brown bag with the long fringe and she'll be loving you come spring. Then pick her up a pair of Zara's gray skinny jeans.
