The other day Scott left the office without his memory card so I met up with him to bring it.


We ended up browsing a shop in the West Village called Leo Design.  The owner is incredibly welcoming and the shop has tons of items that would make great gifts.


The entire selection is grouped in cool color stories and has one of the best vintage cuff link assortments we’ve ever seen.  If you see anything you like in the photos or just want to drop by you can find the shop at 543 Hudson St or call them at 212-929-8466.

    Justin your gift-tips & recommendations are pretty sweet – I love the buttons (maybe cufflinks?) – they would make great gifts!

      Thanks! They are actually cuff links, and they have a case line of them in almost any color story you’re looking for. You should swing by if you live in NYC.

    I love this store – every time I’m in NYC, I make a trip to see it – check out their cool pewter and sliver picture frames. They are slim, vintage looking and the best – I have a whole shelf full.

    For the past 14 years, Leo Design has been my go-to shop for gifts, especially for men. Masculine and chic. I especially love the cufflinks made out of old typewriter keys – a really interesting twist on a monogram when you select a pair of initials.

    Excellent. I like “The Line King” piece. I want a necklace that has Lion King in it. I am definitely looking for one.
