DumboNYC Gift Guide 2007

There’s only one full week left for your Christmas shopping. You don’t have to travel far for your Dumbo holiday party gifting with many new (and existing) retailers in the neighborhood. So if you must buy a gift for your co-worker or family member, don’t panic. Below are just a few of the many items for sale in the neighborhood to consider.

(1) Gift: The TwistTogether LampTM is a revolutionary new lamp that appeals to all ages. Individual blocks connect together and illuminate with a simple twist. Each block illuminates with LEDs which provide a low-voltage and long lasting light source while consuming less power than a standard night light. Many configurations are possible from a single set of blocks. Connect multiple sets together for even more possibilities! The creative options expand indefinitely through our growing collection of TwistTogetherTM objects.
