Last Minute Gifts from Daffy's!

It's cold and the New York City sidewalks are jammed with clueless tourists and crazed shoppers.  But if you still haven't finished your Christmas shopping, there's one store that makes it worth braving the crowds. Daffy's!

The family-owned chain has several stores in Manhattan, one in Brooklyn, and a few in the tri-state area.  Daffy's has been in business for nearly 50 years and is the place to find high fashion at low prices. So armed with the gift card I received, I went to the Daffy's store on E. 18th Street and Fifth Avenue on a mission to find great holiday gift deals.

Here's what I found:

Cozy Coats: The zipper on my long winter coat broke and I didn't want to pay $40 to replace it.  So I was geeked when I spotted a similar black down coat by Larry Levine in the women's section for $69 (retail value $200)! After using my gift card, I only spent $20 on my stylish new coat.

Eclectic Housewares: The store is stocked with colorful home decorations ranging from blinged-out Buddha statues and ceramic Angels ($14.99), to paisley print iron board covers ($10), and prettily-packaged hand soap and lotion gift sets ($5.99).

Handbags & Shoes Galore: If you're in the market for a new bag or pair of boots, Daffy's has a tempting selection.  I spotted a Chanel-like cross body bag ($24.99) and leather Bandolino boots (under $80).

Endless Stocking Stuffers: Socks, tights, scarves, hats, and pajamas are gifts everyone needs and loves to receive.  Daffy's has plenty of cute options for under $20.

  1. I have never heard of this but live in in the West coast so that makes sense. Next time I am in NYC, I am hitting that place up.
