Ah, I am so excited that Christmas is coming!
I am an official holiday lover. I rock out to carols, appreciate decorations and love to shop for the perfect gifts. I think it’s side effects from growing up with a whacko mother who was a half-assed Jehovah’s Witness. The only part she really obeyed was that whole no Christmas or Birthday fun. Yes, it totally sucked.
But instead of being bitter about the holidays, I’m a big kid when it comes to Christmas and all that stuff. For the first time in many years I don’t have a car so I really want to take the time to do some local shopping. I have no desire to run to any mass market retailers to get my gifts this year.
Off the top of my head here are a few local shops in Greenpoint I plan to check out for those on my Christmas list:
Zoe’s – Here you really can’t go wrong. I know my Stepmom and my older sister will enjoy any beauty product I pick out.
Alter – For my sisters stylish metrosexual boyfriend, a gift certificate from Alter will surely hit the spot.
I definitely need to explore some more with new shops opening around town all the time. Sadly, I just don’t get a chance to roam the hood as much as I would like but I think this weekend I’m going to make some time to do just that.
