Happy holidays. It’s that season again. That season where we are reminded that so many New Yorkers who call the city home are actually from somewhere else. Somewhere with yards and cars and houses.
But what can you bring back to the ‘burbs that is special and unique and, in this globalized world with all that Internet shopping, can’t be found in Peoria?
Well, Brooklyn is big right now. It’s the borough that makes stuff. Artisanal stuff. Have you heard? Yes, of course you have. You live there and you read trend stories aplenty. But you know who hasn’t heard? That’s right. Your family. So bring some Brooklyn home. Just make sure to note on your letterpress card the origins and use of the gift. It never hurts to add that the gift in question is “big in Brooklyn.”
What a great way to explain the Brooklyn aesthetic to beleaguered family members.
