We all know New York City is a shopping paradise – as long as you can afford it.  Everything you want can be found in this island and proximities. And when I mean everything, it also includes a long list of businesses that sell the most adorable things you could ever think of. I selected a few stores that are specialized in selling the cutest products you can buy, whether it is for you, your home or your loved ones.

Fish Eddy

Perfect for those interested in kitchen decoration. They have a lovely selection of dishes, plates, tablecloths, mugs, glasses, cutting boards and so on. The style tends to be a mixture of simple, funny and sometimes a bit vintage-looking.

Address: 889 Broadway, New York, NY 10003

Besfren Beauty

K-beauty lovers, unite! Lipgloss, lipstick, moisturizers, facial masks, toners. Everything here is impeccably designed. They offer a beautiful and qualified variety of cosmetic products. So tempting that you should watch out – it is really easy to spend a lot of money here. Just don’t confuse it with the dessert shop next doors. Unless you want to spend more money and gain some extra calories!

Address: 315 5th Ave, New York, NY 10016

Alphabets and Exit9 are cute gift shops in Alphabet City.

Exit 9

With locations in Brooklyn and Manhattan, this place has a diverse selection of gifts and novelties. They are very eclectic as they sell accessories, jewelry, books, decorations, office supplies, toys, and even tech and kitchen goods. They have a website in case you want to other their products online.

Address in Manhattan: 51 Avenue A, New York, NY 10009


Across from the same Avenue A, you can stumble upon a compact but not less cute store. I actually purchased a notebook for myself and my friend got a flask to give to his boyfriend. In general, Alphabets sells numerous cards, journals, shirts, toys, decoration and quirky fun products.

Address: 64 Avenue A, New York, NY 10009

Annie’s Blue Ribbon

Located in Brooklyn’s 5th ave, and a few steps away from Barclay’s Center this lovely shop will make you spend a long time going through its shelves while wishing you had enough money to buy every single item there. Stationery, home decor, tech gadget that you may or may not need, travel items and so on. I highly recommend stopping by. Also because the area has a lot of cafés, thrift shops and tasty restaurants. I promise it will be worth your trip!

Address: 232 5th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215

Annie’s Blue Ribbon is a stationery wonderland!

Flying Tiger

Originally from Denmark, this is an amazing option if you’re into cheap and charming junk. You can buy toys, stationery, home decor, kitchen utensils, workout accessories and whatnot. It is probably the most inexpensive place in this entire list. It can be found in a few locations, such as Brooklyn, Upper East Side and near the Flatiron Building.

Address close to Shake Shack and Fish Eddy: 920 Broadway, 21st and Broadway, New York, NY 10010
