Best Brooklyn Gift Shops- Seek App

It’s gift-giving time! These days, part of the gift is all about where it was purchased – so give the gift of shopping local. Your loved one will appreciate your support of the community and so will the planet, not to mention the store owners who are also your neighbors.

We love the Brooklyn community and all it has to offer, and today we’re sharing our favorite shops to browse and stumble upon the perfect gifts.

Here’s the top 5 gift shops in Brooklyn according to Seek:

1. Blue Ribbon General Store

232 5th Ave Brooklyn, NY 11215

Annie grew up in rural New Jersey visiting general stores up and down the east coast, as well as being part of her local 4H program where she would strive to win the blue ribbons for first place. Harnessing that same idea as BEST IN SHOW, the shop’s theme was born. Annie & the the team continuously pull together the best that life has to offer, all under one roof, to win the blue ribbon for fun and function.

They offer everything from candles to calendars, jewelry to tools and bar accessories to baby gear. Blue Ribbon is a great spot, and it’s a woman owned and operated business!

2. Awesome Brooklyn

617 Flatbush Avenue Brooklyn, New York

Sometimes a name just sums it up. Awesome does just that, with an entire section dedicated to Girl Power as well as a selection of handmade items, this little shop packs a punch. Find stickers, cards, planters, socks, winter gear and more. You’ll want one of everything!

3. Sterling Place

363 Atlantic Avenue (Between Hoyt and Bond) Brooklyn, NY 11217
