Holiday Shop Local - Long Island - Laffey Real Estate

The holidays are almost here, and with that comes the challenge of finding unique gifts for all the special people on your shopping list. Although you could go to a big box store to take care of your holiday shopping. our real estate agents recommend exploring some of the great local shops around Long Island. Not only is this an excellent way to support your community, but you're also far more likely to find one-of-a-kind gifts that are sure to really "wow" your family and friends.  

Not sure where to start? No problem! Here are a few of our favorite places to find unique Christmas gifts for every type of recipient.

  1. Wit & Whim: 6 Carlton Ave., Port Washington, NY 11050
    Wit & Whim offers an excellent selection of modern, vintage, and handmade items from over 60 local merchants. Shopping at this store is even more special because they give back a portion of all their profits to deserving charitable organizations!

  4. Dolphin Bookshop: 299 Main St., Port Washington, NY 11050
    The independent Dolphin Bookshop is the perfect place to find a unique gift for the bookworm on your list. Best of all, you can make a day of it! Spend some time shopping, then grab lunch at the store's cafe before taking a drive around to check out some of the beautiful Port Washington homes for sale.
