Gift-giving time is right around the corner and if you’re like me, then you still have a lot of shopping to do. We thought it’d be great to do the shopping in the neighborhood so we rounded up some great local shops to do some last-minute shopping before this weekend:

Tap Beer NY
Where: 1416 Avenue Z or 2081 East 19 St
What: I certainly wouldn’t be upset if someone got me beer for Christmas or Chanukah. At Tap Beer, you can buy draught beer from an enormous selection in various sizes of recycled bottles. It’s good for the environment and it’s good for the soul.

Unique Flowers
Where: 1720 Avenue Z
What: At a loss for what to get? You can’t go wrong with flowers. And if you really want to step it up, Unique Flowers has festive seasonal flowers on hand so it won’t look like a last ditch effort to get a gift. We suggest with combining them with another small item for any of the other places on this list.

What: Have a smoker in the family? Someone who enjoys a fine stogie after a hard day, or even during an easy day? Perfect Smoke has a huge selection of cigars and cigarettes and loose tobacco. This place is a smoker’s dream. However, if you know someone trying to quit then talk to the people at the next listing below.

Life Made A Little Easier
Where: 1702 Sheepshead Bay Rd
What: LMALE is Sheepshead Bay’s premier vape shop. Vaping is commonly resorted to when one tries to stop smoking cigarettes. The contraptions that LMALE sells can produce flavored vapor or even vapor that tastes like cigarette smoke. This would be a thoughtful gift for someone who is trying to stop smoking.
