For the cost-conscious interior decorator

The home decorator in your life will definitely appreciate an antique, collectible, piece of original artwork, designer furniture, or other perfectly shabby-chic interior accent from Habitat For Humanity’s ReStore. And its eco-friendly aspect makes it hip, too.

ReStore,
3909 Jackson Rd. (near Uptown Coney Island).
734-478-6331.

For the international appetite

Know what Doro Wat is? Surprise foodie friends with your culinary prowess by treating them to a night at Ethiopian restaurant The Blue Nile, and take them on an international food adventure without ever having to leave A2. (You can discover Doro Wat together!)

Blue Nile,
221 E. Washington St.
734-998-4746

For the timely jewelry lover

 Flashing new bling post- holiday is a rite of passage for both women and men. From the luxurious (like Omega’s stunning Ladymatic watch) to the trendy (Pandora charm bracelets), a piece of stunning jewelry is a no-fail classic gift.

For the hophead

Beer nerds can satisfy their love of the brew with membership in Home Brewing’s Adventures Mug Club, a bi-monthly delivery service of beer recipe kits and matching pint glasses. It’ll be way more satisfying than that mug you were eyeing.

For the arty accessorizer

The unique Watchcraft by Eduardo Milieris timepieces are carefully crafted in the artist's New York studio using various combinations of textured and 'weathered' silver, brass and copper.  It can be adjusted to fit most men and women — just let 16 Hands know the wrist size and they'll size it before it ships.
