Here are some ideas from the wiki!

  • A really, really good city map with the subway map over streets.
  • Zagat guide (restaurants or nightlife) or copy of Time Out New York
  • Apples
  • Starbucks gift card
  • Your choice of ethnic or specialty foods. Unique food shops in NYC: Magnolia Bakery, Sweets from Serendipity, Chocolate Bar, Peanut butter co., etc

Another neat idea!

I love the Strand tote bags mentioned in Mr. Bee’s post, and think that something from a local shop/restaurant would be great (esp. if most of your family/friends are from NYC — they don’t need a Statue of Liberty key chain).

What about an “I heart NY” coffee mug with a gift card to Dean & Deluca or Starbucks for a cup of coffee.

What about black & white cookies? Or NY bagels for the next morning? I know I’d love to wake up & know there’s an H&H with my name on it. LOL

Check out NYFirst – they have the coolest stuff. I have one of those vendor greek coffee cups from a roach-coach but it’s ceramic. They’re a little pricey but so cool. http://www.newyorkfirst.com/pages/index.html

There’s always Pearl River too. I love that place – I can spend HOURS in there: http://www.pearlriver.com/v2/index.html

For some reason, I can’t get the picture of the MTA one to show.  Here’s the link http://www.nycwebstore.com/detail.aspx?Product_ID=NYN-Subway_Umb

Hi, what do you think about these umbrellas?  It’s functional and may be a good conversation starter piece for NY and non NY guests
