The Tenement Museum has a wide array of books, housewares, gifts, knick-knacks, and memorabilia to make your holiday season one for the history books! Everyone likes getting gifts, but is there anything better than being known among your friends and family as the person who gets everyone the perfect present? We’re here to help you claim that title, my friend, with our unique collection of gifts for all the HOSTS, NEW YORKERS, TRAVELERS, and KIDS in your life!
You’ll never show up empty-handed with these stellar gifts for the host or hostess. Whether you’re invited to dinner or spending the weekend, show your appreciation with a holiday cookbook, clever kitchen tool, or party game!
For the New Yorker who has everything and claims they know everything, a selection of our most popular New York- centric goodies is sure to delight. Some of these items are so fun you might need to buy yourself a little something too!
Take New York with you wherever you go next! We’ve scoured the globe for a perfect mix of compact souvenirs and travel-inspiring presents. The perfect gifts for the trailblazing tourists, the NYC subway navigators or the wannabe wayfarers.
Keep the kids busy through the holiday parties and the frostiest of snow days. They’ll be enjoying these challenging puzzles and educational reads well after the holidays. With such great finds, you might stock up for their next birthday too!
Happy shopping, and happy holidays from the Tenement Museum!
