Now that we’ve told you where to eat for Thanksgiving ideas, let’s give you a couple of days for rare shopping opportunities. Take along Scout bags for each city: perfect for packing and ideal for shopping favorites. We think these shops have great style, great merchandise, and are truly unique as destination shopping.

For the man in your life,  stop at Freeman’s Sporting Club (down near the Bowery), known for the Bespoke line and their private collection. If you get hungry, check out the bar in the alley.

For hostess gifts and hard-to-buy-for ladies, LAFCO has great toiletries toiletries, perfumes, soaps and also carries the exclusive Santa Maria Novella collection (run by an Abbey in Italy Florence).

For those who love quirky antiques and panoramic photos, Paula Rubenstein on Prince Street is a must stop.

Love the line of Calypso? Like to feel like you’ve never left the beach? Try the Calypso outlet.
