Tackle your holiday shopping around our apartments in Weehawken, NJ

Shopping for the holidays can be a stressful endeavor. Ease the seasonal tension, and find some amazing spots for stellar gifts to delight even the pickiest of your loved ones near RiverHouse 11 at Port Imperial. Here are some ideas for the perfect holiday gifts:


Give the gift of art

Awaken emotion in your gifting this year by choosing to give artfully. There are a host of galleries around that will gladly help you find the perfect piece for a friend. If giving an original work is outside of your comfort zone, you can always go gallery hopping with a friend and give the gift of experience (and maybe throw in lunch, too). For more practical and beautiful gifts, consider the MoMa Design store. They have a wide variety of objects perfectly suited for gift-giving and you can either take a short trip into the city to one of their locations in Soho, at the Museum and on 53rd Street, or with enough time, you can even order online.


Give the gift of yesteryear

Nothing says caring like giving something that you just can’t go to a national retailer and buy off the shelf. Got a friend who’s been looking for a Michael Jackson “Thriller” jacket for years? You might be in luck with a trip to Vintage on First, not too far from RiverHouse 11. They offer a carefully curated collection of vintage finds from decades past that have the potential to make dreams come true.


Give the gift of gastronomy
