NEW YORK, Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Where are New York City's best places
to shop local for the holidays? DNAinfo.com New York's Holiday Gift Guide is
chock full of unique gift ideas to help you buy for everyone on your list,
from Grandma to your office Secret Santa.

DNAinfo.com New York's shopping aficionado Victoria Floethe scoured New York's
neighborhoods to find the city's most unique and coveted presents, which
include a pink ukulele from Chelsea Guitars, a traditional hot-towel shave at
Tommy Guns on the Lower East Side, a Pig-Butchering Class from The Brooklyn
Kitchen and a Stir Fry Slicing Set from Area Kids in Park Slope.

"As for holiday shopping, much can be said for the convenience of the
two-click online purchase, but shopping local will reignite your love affair
with New York," said Floethe, who also runs "The Desire Project" documentary
series. "This year I set out to find the most desirable presents from each
corner of the city. Some stores on the list are third-generation family
operations, and some will have their first birthday next year, but each one is
a worthy destination."

The Holiday Gift Guide is available online and in print. Santa Claus
characters will distribute 100,000 Holiday Gift Guides throughout December at
NYC's major holiday markets, including Union Square, Columbus Circle and
Chelsea Market.

"We're thrilled to spotlight some of the city's coolest locally owned shops
that our readers will want to visit this season," said Michael P. Ventura,
managing editor, DNAinfo.com New York. "As the city's leading neighborhood
news source, we wanted to design a Holiday Gift Guide that would encourage New
Yorkers to shop local."
