SIL is currently in New York and she just messaged me that she'd like to bring me one thing back as a gift.

I'm so clueless. What should I get? I want something that is quintessentially "New York" (and not a mug or a yankees hat), something cool, chic and perhaps a bit girly.

Can anyone help?

A nice scarf for winter? Or a huge brolly. I love their umbrellas.


edited...no one wants a nice mouse from new york.

Something from the gift shop at MoMA or The Met. Just tell her to walk in and buy the first thing that catches her eye - guaranteed it will be cool original.gif

I wish! I was thinking something a little cheaper than that.

When I went to NYC I bought a great book about the history of NYC.  It was a fascinating read.  It's my favourite NYC trinket.
I also bought (on my first trip) a little I heart NY charm.  I wear it around my neck almost every day. Tacky, but I love it.

Molly got an American Girl doll from NYC and has a NY shirt for it.  The Eloise shop at the Plaza is also great for a gift. original.gif
