The Seaport District Holiday Gift Guide

Hit the cobblestones this Holiday season to find everything you need for your gifting list in one fell swoop. From luxury labels to unique design objects, limited edition accessories and exceptional experiences, even the hard-to-please will be all wrapped up. Here are some of our favorite items to give and receive, available in-store at Seaport retailers now.

FOR THE STYLISH WOMAN


Anne Vest x Lil Miquela Jacket from 10 Corso Como
Perfect for the person who likes to make a fashion statement and loves a limited edition, Danish designer Anne Vest has collaborated with Instagram sensation Lil Miquela on this capsule jacket collection. Available for a short time only at 10 Corso Como New York, with a portion of the sales will go to a special charity.

FOR THE CRAFTY


Treat the budding artists in your life to a group print workshop at the historic Bowne Printers in the South Street Seaport Museum. This three-hour workshop for up to six people introduces participants to typesetting and letterpress. Students choose from a selection of the Museum’s vintage lead type to design their own personalized stationery and are guided through the process of setting type, proofing on the Vandercook cylinder press, fine-tuning designs, and printing a final run on the 19th-century tabletop platen press. Each participant goes home with 25 personal stationery items. 

FOR THE DESIGN BUFF


Maison Dada Off The Moon Cake Stand from 10 Corso Como 
Lovers of innovative objects will lust after Maison Dada’s beautifully crafted pieces. Taking inspiration from the moon, the Shanghai-based furniture brand has created these pink copper and colorful ash veneer “cake stands”, which are actually functional side tables that double as a work of art. A truly unique gift for any design fan.  

FOR THE MOVIEGOER


An iPic gift card is a no-brainer for any New Yorker who loves cinema. The Fulton Market location features in-theater drinking and dining served to your seat, a gourmet grab-and-go snack concession, and gastro-lounge Tuck Room—perfect for pre- and post- movie cocktails and bites. Right now you can get a $30 bonus with the purchase of a $100 gift card. 

FOR THOSE ON-THE-GO


ROWLEY x Manhattan Portage Bags from Cynthia Rowley 
Fashion collectors and active urbanites alike will appreciate New York designer Cynthia Rowley’s collaboration with Manhattan Portage, who captured the true spirit of NYC with the launch of their messenger bag more than three decades ago. The ROWLEY x Manhattan Portage capsule collection reimagines two signature styles in sleek satin—a unique (and practical) addition to any handbag collection.

FOR THE TASTEMAKER


DITA Creator Sunglasses
For those who appreciate the finer things, DITA’s versatile, unisex Creator sunglasses are the perfect extravagant stocking-stuffer. Handcrafted in Japan from the finest acetate, these frames are a timeless modern classic from the pioneer of luxury eyewear.

FOR THE SHOE OBSESSED


For those who salivate over a statement shoe, Sarah Jessica Parker has you covered. At the actress-turned-designer’s newly opened SJP Collection flagship, you can find the Lucille Satin Bow Pump in an exclusive-to-the-Seaport deep blue “expert satin” fabric. The four-inch, show-stopping stilettos are handcrafted in Italy and feature an oversized bow detail on the heel that will elevate any ensemble. 

FOR THE FRAGRANCE LOVER


Roberto Cavalli Fragrances at Roberto Cavalli Seaport Lab
If you’re looking for an extra special fragrance, Roberto Cavalli’s newest releases are guaranteed to impress. Uomo La Notte (with notes of violet, lavender and bergamot) and Gemma di Paradiso (inspired by the Mediterranean) can be found at Cavalli’s experiential laboratory, a unique concept store exclusive to the Seaport District. Housed in beautiful cut glass vessels, they look as good as they smell.  

FOR THE ARTFUL HOME DECORATOR


Kartell Textiles by Ettore Sottsass and Nathalie du Pasquier from 10 Corso Como
The interior obsessed will no doubt covet the work of 1980s Italian architecture and design group, Memphis. Designed by Memphis alumni Nathalie du Pasquier and Ettore Sottass, Kartell’s colorful furniture collection at 10 Corso Como features the design luminaries’ signature graphic prints on a range of seating pieces. From the neon-hued Mademoiselle Memphis Letraset chairs by Sottass to Pasquier’s playful Foliage sofa, these functional objects are true collector’s items. 

FOR THE ACCESSORIES ADDICT


Scotch & Soda Belt Bag
The Amsterdam fashion label known for its eclectic streetwear and tailoring that draws on global influences has the perfect collection of accessories for those looking for something a little bit different. We love this multifunctional, take-apart suede belt bag that works trifold as a fanny pack, clutch, and belt.
