It’s that time of the year again where millions of Americans wander around shops and scan the internet in search for the perfect gifts for their loved ones. In case you are among them and you look for something special in great quality, this seasonal Austrian shopping guide of NYC may inspire you.

FREYWILLE , an enamel jewelry brand from Vienna, takes quality and craftsmanship seriously. For over 60 years FREYWILLE has been handcrafting high-end bangles, earrings and watches and sells them in over 86 stores worldwide. We encourage you to come and see for yourself at the newly opened FREYWILLE store on 624 Madison Avenue in New York City.

STILLFRIED WIEN , in the lively Tribeca neighborhood (40 Walker Street), offers an exceptional mix of furniture and home accessories in modern design and of traditional craftsmanship from Austrian brands like LOBMEYR, AUGARTEN or TEAM 7.

LOMOGRAPHY , a brand dedicated to creative and experimental analog photography, produces classic new analog cameras and films. In the LOMOGRAPHY store in Westvillage (41 West 8th Street), you will find a wide range of cameras and accessories in great shapes and designs. The LOMOGRAPHY store is also one of the few places in New York which still processes analog film.

For more than 100 years, SWAROVSKI has produced luxury crystals made from cut lead glass. In various stores in NYC (e.g Rockefeller Plaza) you will find fine jewelry, little figurines and Christmas ornaments made from crystals.

If you prefer to avoid the crowds and shop online:

AROLLA HOME , an Austrian brand selling premium products made from Arolla pine (Swiss pine), just launched its website in the US market. The Arolla pine has been used for over 300 years for its aromatic oil and its source of wood. It has been most commonly used for building practices as well as furniture and Alpine crafts. These pine trees are also credited for absorbing a large amount of the carbon dioxide in the air, thus creating one of the cleanest and purest air qualities in the world. AROLLA HOME is the industry leader in offering the highest quality and widest range of Austrian Arolla based products such as pillows, oils and humidifiers.

Happy shopping!
