2004 Best Gifts

Flat of the Hill

Searching for the perfect gift can be a chore—unless you’re at Flat of the Hill. This cute shop stocks only things that are in style (providing, of course, that they’re also tasteful), so buyers can rest assured their money will be well spent. The place is filled with everything from Oscar de la Renta candles and Tusk wallets to Lauren Merkin leather clutches and high-heeled flip-flops. There’s also a special section with presents for brides-to-be. The only catch is a welcome one: You’ll likely walk away with a gift for yourself, too.
