The Christmas countdown is on, and if you’re a last-minute shopper, panic may be starting to set in. If you’ve waited to get your gift shopping done (or, worse, you haven’t even started), don’t surrender to the big box stores and websites quite yet. There are plenty of unique and special shopping destinations across that city where you can find wow-worthy, one-of-a-kind presents for the MVPs on your “nice” list.

We're all about shopping local, and this Astoria boutique's focus on artisanal goods makes it especially appropriate for gifting that special someone. A set of "I Heart Astoria" bibs scream stocking stuffer for the Queens babe in your life, and we're quite certain that your partner in parenting crime will appreciate a stainless steel flask emblazoned with the phrase "Three Sheets to the Wind."
