As we’re enjoying the last few days of autumn and getting ready for Thanksgiving, many of us are starting to think about holiday shopping. One website that has surprisingly unique gifts for the special person in your life that’s “hard to shop for” is the New York Times store.
Here are some one-of-a-kind items featured at the New York Times store:
Everyone has their favorite harbor. For me, it’s the New York Harbor with the iconic New York Skyline and the Statue of Liberty in the distance. These coasters are elegant and look great in a house with a rustic or beach decor. I received a sample of the coasters and loved how clear the print of the New York harbor looked on the marble. The yellow added a pop of color on my rustic wooden coffee table. $59.95.
This book includes every single front page of the NY Times from the day the recipient was born (that’s a lot of pages, regardless of how old he or she is). It comes personalized with recipient’s name in gold lettering and the festive red hard cover makes it the perfect gift for the holiday season. The book also includes extra pages with historical information, a commemorative coin and a magnifier. $179.95
This keepsake book is perfect for new parents, with room to record information, milestones and photographs. It comes with a Gund teddy bear, storage pockets for keepsakes and 40 reprinted Times pages from the day the baby was born, as well as old-time baby illustrations. $139.95
A really cool gift for the wine aficionado, this custom-made barrel can be used to age red or white wine and hold beverages like beer, tequila or rum. It comes personalized with name, date and city and includes a wooden stand. A two liter barrel is $89.95 (it also comes in five and ten liter sizes).
This puzzle is a wonderful gift for any puzzle lover and makes for a great rainy day family activity. It features an aerial map of the city of your choice, whether your own hometown, or a city that holds a special place in your heart. The puzzle comes in 3 options: 300, 500 and 1,000 pieces. ($44.95 for 500 pieces).
