www.dijitalfix.com
Good for:  The tech nerd in your life or music junkies.

Dalaga NYC
150 Franklin St., Brooklyn
718-389-4049
www.dalaganyc.com
Good for:  Your best friend, sister or roommate — anyone who loves staying in style and sporting unique finds.
Category: Women’s clothing, accessories
“Definitely the standout boutique on Franklin Ave. Really cute clothes, not too expensive prices (most things are similar to Urban Outfitters prices, but better quality and more unique). It’s easy to miss, so make sure you check it out.” Tara D., Brooklyn

The Ink Pad
37 Seventh Ave.
212-463-9876
www.theinkpadnyc.com
Good for: Grandmothers and other crafty types
Category: Art supplies
“If you looking for stamps for A&C projects, this may be your heaven! I’m just starting out making cards and I needed to get some basic supplies…and found this place.” Florence Y., Brooklyn

Little MissMatched
565 Fifth Ave.
212-297-2570
www.littlemissmatched.com
Good for: Creative youngsters or anyone who loves to express themselves with color and funky accessories.
Category:  Children’s clothing, baby gear and furniture
“I first discovered LMM while passing through Grand Central station last spring when I noticed this very colorful cart (the kind you see at shopping malls). I got curious so I stopped and checked it out. I was like a kid in a candy store! The designs and color everything mismatched from socks to slippers, hair accessories, bags, pajamas, etc.” Angel S., New York

Myplasticheart
210 Forsyth St.
646-290-6866
www.myplasticheart.com
Good for: Kids, toy enthusiasts and collectors
Category: Toy stores, art galleries
“I think I’ve found another favorite place to buy vinyl figures! They have a great variety in such a little store. The workers are all so nice. I must have bugged them like five times and every single time they helped me out and with a SMILE no less. AMAZING! They are one of the only places to sell some of the items that are on display.” Derrick L., Queens

Printed Matter
195 10th Ave.
212-925-0325
www.printedmatter.org
Good for: Bookworms, artists and anyone who loves good ol’ fashion print on paper.
Category: Book stores, art galleries
“The only bad thing about this place is $100 disappears every time you walk through the door.  Self publishing, small press, artist book mecca: the holy grail.  Massive library from lowbrow to highbrow to nobrow. Definitely the best place to lose time and your paycheck.”
Mike L., New York

The Evolution Store
120 Spring St.
212-343-1114
www.theevolutionstore.com
Good for: Your brother, best guy friend and science nerds
Category: Home decor, hobby shops
“When I was little, my dad had a fossilized fish that I always thought was just the coolest thing. Now, thanks to the Evolution Store, as of last night, I have one too. Even if you’re not planning to shop, I’d recommend anyone passing through SoHo to check this place out. It’s like a natural history museum’s gift shop — except with a better selection of items.” Althea A., Staten Island
