If our exhaustive Holiday Guide left you wanting more gift ideas — with Hanukkah upon us and all — look no further! In our Not-So-Last-Minute Gift Guide, we sent six tastemakers into three store-packed neighborhoods to shop for everyone on their lists in three hours or less. Luckily, Creatures of Comfort owner Jade Lai, Old Village Hall owner Scott Hill, Salon 94 founder Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, interior architect Henry Mitchell, Partners & Spade co-owner Anthony Sperduti, and Hester Street Fair founder Suchin Pak were up for the challenge. They returned from Soho, the Upper East Side, and Williamsburg with fantastic finds at every price point. To round out their picks, we hunted down additional great presents in the same areas. Click ahead to check out a few of their picks along with our favorites of the bunch.
Striped and Tartan Ties by Rag & Bone
Why He Likes It: "The tartan feels festive but sophisticated. You could wear it for years." —Anthony Sperduti
Mae Dress by Alpinestars by Denise Focil
Why We Like It: The asymmetrical sleeves and lacy fabric add interest, but the basic color and swingy shape make this dress the perfect canvas for sparkly holiday accessories.
Givenchy Le Prisme Collector Sparkling Powder
Why We Like It: Nothing's better at complementing a sexy party dress than a few swipes of shimmer powder to give the face and décolletage a subtle glow.
Snakeskin-Print Wedges by Jean-Michel Cazabat
Why He Likes It: "A festive update on the basic black pump. Perfect for holiday parties." —Henri Mitchell
Long-Sleeve T-Shirts by Unis
Why She Likes It: "Every guy I know has one — they're just the softest T-shirts — but women also love them." —Jade Lai
