Calling All Those in a Panic: Last Minute Gift Ideas from Connecticut Shops
(page 2 of 5)
Who says you can't play ping-pong anywhere you go? Designed by Stephan Copeland, this portable set's weighted net can be set up on any smooth surface--no special mounting is required--and extends up to 72 inches. The set comes with two ping pong paddles with retractable handles, two balls and a drawstring pouch for storage. Look for it at Mix Design Store in Guilford.
Avid collectors of fine gifts of all kinds will love a little something from R.A. Georgetti & Co. in Olde Mistick Village in Mystic. Everything from Herend and Swarovski figurines to Byers Choice Carolers can be found here, as well as jewelry and Anuschka handbags. Pictured here is one of a large array of beer steins, this being a tribute to Scotland, decorated with a wraparound blue knotwork motif framing two thistles.
Proudly billing itself as "a store for guys," Deep River's Anchor & Compass offers a casual vibe: music by Johnny Cash, Pearl Jam and the Beach Boys, sometimes even a bucket of beer (or root beer) on ice for thirsty shoppers, and always quality clothing (Woolrich, Tommy Bahama and Carhartt) alongside unique gifts and gadgets. One pick the man in your life will love is a belt by Leather Man Ltd., made with love in Essex since 1967.
