Now that the gift-giving holidays are all done, it’s time to get back to shopping for what you want. After all, those gift certificates aren’t going to spend themselves!

No matter what you’re looking for, chances are Flying Point Surf Shop, with locations in Southampton, Sag Harbor and Greenport, has it. Keep yourself stylishly warm in their full line of Patagonia jackets, for example. Pick out a new hat, some gloves, cozy wool socks—there’s snow on the ground! Or pretend summer is right around the corner and pick out a skateboard. Pro-tip: you should always have a pair of sunglasses in the car, ESPECIALLY in the winter (Flying Point has those too). After a good snow the sun’s reflection can be blinding!

Perhaps you want something old….If you can’t find it at English Country Antiques, you won’t find it.

Turn your house into a happy home this year by welcoming a new, furrier member. The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation (SASF) in Hampton Bays, Animal Rescue Fund (ARF) in Wainscott and the North Fork Animal Welfare League in Peconic and Riverhead are just a few of the organizations that do the good work of taking care of the East End’s homeless pet population while they await their own “furever” home. Not everyone can bring a new pet into the home, so you could also visit the ARF Thrift and Treasure Shop in Sagaponack and SASF’s ReTail Shop in Southampton for clothes, books, unique home wares and more.
