We asked a few of our star tour guides and staff for some of their favorite holiday gifts to give this season.  “Just don’t share with EVERYONE they said” …sorry.

Hostess with the Mostess…

1.  Murray’s Cheese Shop – Murray’s Brie Basket Set 

“I brought this as a gift for my Brother’s in-law.  Not only did they love it, but now every year I bring Brie and we baked it and eat the whole thing!  The gift that keeps on giving.”

-Sephrah, Greenwich Village Tour Guide

Murray’s Brie Baker Set

AKA “The Briedazzzler” as Murray’s would say.  This sweet and buttery dish is perfect for the holidays.  Warm and comforting, Murray’s baked Brie will surely be a party pleaser.  Ready to go, all you have to do is heat it up in the oven and the savoring begins.  Pair your brie with the Dalmatia fig spread over some baked bread along with either a Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Lager or Farmhouse Ale.

Murray’s Brie Baker Set includes: Murray’s Brie inside of an ovenproof brie baker and a Dalmatia Fig Spread.

Scent of the Season…

2.  The New York Shaving Company – Old St. Patrick’s Cologne

“The scent mixes nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, coriander & ginger.  It’s like Christmas in a bottle and it smells like a handsome man!”

-Anny, Nolita Tour Guide

The New York Shaving Company has the perfect holiday gift for the gentleman in your life.  Anny recommends the Old St. Patrick’s Cologne.  Inspired by the history of Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral, they created a fragrance infused with nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon and coriander.  The subtle blend offers a musky finish softened with vanilla. This cologne is the perfect stocking stuffer for the one you love.
