Other ideas? Non-gender specific?

  • A smart whiskey from Duke’s Liquor Box (170 Franklin St) or a punchy wine via Dandelion Wine (153 Franklin St) is a superb option.
  • Brooklyn Craft classes! Treat your friend, spouse, sibling, lover, coworker, (etc!) to a little creative time.
  • Or, if you have a nearest & dearest with the fitness bug, how about a Jessie Zalla pilates class, or two?
  • A good book will never go wrong and the right story can leave a lasting impression. Word (126 Franklin St), as always, impresses.
