Loving the new cotton knits {I feel a touch of Louis Vuitton elegance here — don’t you?} that Aaraa has in their home decor section.


This chic accessories boutique also sports some of the most beautiful gems and accessories around town! These vintage-inspired studs kind of remind us of Kate Middleton’s engagement ring…just sayin. And that is just the beginning. Click here for more of the amazing finds at one of our fave accessory stores in town.

Of course we couldn’t forget the men in our lives. For HIS gifts around town: 


1. Roosters: 610 Washington Street

roosters hoboken

Does your man fancy a shag? One of my fave spots for men’s haircuts is Roosters on Washington Street. They have everything from shaves to trims to scalp massages – the perfect anecdote to an unkempt mop. I send lots of scruffy men there when they ask where to go.


2. Hoboken Cigar: 77 River Street


This is a gem of a cigar shop (if you’re into smoking, that is) — but really, this shop is pretty cool. They have fancy leather chairs to sit on + you can BYO-W{hiskey}. Not bad, if we do say so ourselves. 


3. Hoboken Golf: 125 Grand Street

Don’t think you have to go to the burbs to get your golf in. Hoboken Golf is just “fore” your golf-loving guy. HG {see what we did there?!} offers a full indoor golf and entertainment facility conveniently located on Grand Street in Hoboken. Plus, they have tons of virtual golf opportunities on their huge TVs!


4. Meadowlands Racetrack: East Rutherford
