Thanksgiving is over and the Holiday season has finally begun! One of the things that consumes us all every December, is holiday shopping. Once again, Little Hoboken has put together a Holiday Gift Guide highlighting exciting gifts for everyone (many of which can be found locally)!
For the Kids
Alleyoop has the most thoughtfully chosen selection of vintage and preloved clothing for babies and toddlers. Their clothing is not only in excellent condition, but each piece is unique and one-of-a-kind, just like your child! It is a great way to shop sustainably while not compromising your child's fashion- forward wardrobe.

Fitness for All
Alo Yoga Women's High Waisted Moto Leggings
These leggings are not only super cool, but they fit people of all shapes and sizes extremely well.
You can wear them to yoga, or you can just wear them all the time.
They are true to size and have a high waist that won't roll down.
Athleta offers so much more than athletic apparel, and every year their clothing gets more and more beautiful. This season may be their best season yet with a robust sherpa collection and so many shimmery leggings I am still having trouble picking just one! The collection also includes metallics and as always, sizes and cuts for every body type. The two-story Hoboken Athleta location has a friendly and knowledgeable staff who will ensure you select the perfect gift.
Located at 1317 Willow, Brazen Athletics offers CrossFit-style training by incorporating their own principles surrounding exercise, intensity, and mindset. They have two special offers this holiday season with a 10 class pack for $149 (normally $210), or 1 month unlimited for $149 (normally $210).
This is the perfect gift for the yoga enthusiast who can't make it to the studio. FlorYoga specializes in private and semi-private, in-home and on-site yoga, including Prenatal, Postnatal, and Vinyasa. An experienced instructor will come to your home or business to give you a personalized yoga class or private session. Contact Sarah to set up an introductory session at

Lululemon Light Cotton Fleece Scuba Hoodie
This relaxed fit hoodie is made of soft, blended cotton fleece fabric and comes in 20 different colors and prints. It also has a media pocket with a hidden cord exit and thumbholes. I own this and it is incredibly warm. I love that I can wear it alone into late fall months without needing an additional coat.
Prime Taekwondo is located in the Monroe Center - 720 Monroe Street. They provide high-quality martial arts classes for kids, teens, and adults. Prime Taekwondo can also host birthday parties for your child and 15 of their closest friends!
When Their Look Could Use an Update
Big "O" Leather Key Ring by Oventure
There is something about these key rings that makes me want to order them all. They have a silicone version, if you are an outdoorsy type, but the most beautiful are the croc-embossed leather ones.

Coup de Coeur is now sporting a new look and we love it! The uptown Hoboken's recently revamped store looks amazing. Equally as wonderful are its contents. Their fall and winter collection is filled with faux fur, prints, sequins, sweaters, jumpsuits, dresses, and fabulous tops. There seems to be something in there for everyone.

For a Unique Escape

Pine Ridge Dude Ranch is an all-inclusive ranch experience and getaway. They have fun for the whole family with horseback riding, indoor and outdoor pools and waterslides, a petting zoo, archery range, tractor rides, a rock wall, campfires, live shows, snow tubing, ice skating, paintball, and so much more! There is a social director on site to ensure the fun does not stop. Melissa stayed here with her family and loved it. To say I want to go, is an understatement! See you there!
For the Gourmand

This bamboo cutting board has laser engraved markings that will not fade over time. It includes guidelines for the most common dice and cuts.

Vinturi Essential Red Wine Aerator Pourer and Decanter
This is great and can be used with all your red wines. I use mine all the time, probably even when it is unnecessary.
It also comes with a little stand to ensure you don't drip red wine all over the place after you pour.
For A Local Night Out
Mile Square Theatre
If you haven't been to Mile Square Theatre yet, you are missing out! With a robust season of programming, there is something new to see almost monthly! If you can't decide which show to get tickets for, they also sell gift certificates so you can let your loved ones decide. Now you just have to hope they choose to bring you along. Visit https://www.milesquaretheatre.org/ for info!
When One Item Won't Do
Receiving a Happy Box is receiving the most personalized gift possible. They are like care packages that contain only the things you like. The themes can vary from standard holiday favorites, to get well soon, to birthdays, and engagements, or you can design your very own for whatever reason you like with over 90 gifts to choose from. I love the gift options so much, I am tempted to send one to myself!
Gifts that Do Good
Bombas Sock Gift Box
For every item Bombas sells, a new item of clothing is donated to the homeless community throughout the United States. To date, Bombas has donated over 25 million items of clothing.
Membership to Liberty Science Center
Your gift of membership to Liberty Science Center will help further its mission to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers and excite learners of all ages about the power, promise, and pure fun of science and technology.

Young Lions Membership at the New York Public Library
If you have a bibliophile (in their 20's or 30's) in your life, this is an amazing gift! The Young Lions is a special group for people who love literature, a good cocktail, and the library. Their membership gains them access to private behind the scenes events, as well as the Young Lions Fiction Award.
