Holiday Shopping in Manalapan: Finding the Perfect Gift

Patch looks at local businesses for where to buy great gifts this holiday season.

Holiday shopping can be frustrating when you're trying to find the perfect gift. If you’re still not completed with your holiday shopping list, Patch is offering some suggestions of gifts that you can buy at Manalapan stores. 

Shopping for Women 

1. It’s no secret that girls love diamonds - or any kind of jewelry for that matter! Gary Michaels, located in the Epicentre Shopping Center at 55 Route 9 South, sells a beautiful selection of jewelry and watches - including brands such as Aaron Basha, David Yurman, Breitling, Cartier, Mikimoto, Roberto Coin and John Hardy. And, if you’re looking to pop the question this holiday season, Gary Michaels does sell diamond rings!

2. Women also love to be pampered. So, schedule a massage, facial, body wrap, teeth whitening or mask treatment at Avanti Day Resort. Besides spa treatments, Avanti also has a full salon offering hair cuts, color, make-up application, manicures, pedicures, waxing and more. Avanti Day Resort is located in the Design Center Plaza at 345 Route 9 South in Manalapan. 

3. Surprise her with some personalized stationery. If the woman you are buying for still enjoys sending letters the old-fashioned, snail mail way, this is a really thoughtful gift. Especially For You, a 28-year-old business located at 348 Route 9 North, specializes in designing stationery, invitations, and party accessories. 

Shopping for Men

1. Rick’s Saddle Shop in Englishtown sells more than just horse and riding supplies. They have a full selection of leather goods, boots, belts, collectibles, scarves, blankets, all-weather jackets, fleeces and vests. But if you know a true cowboy (or just a wannabe cowboy), Rick’s sells wonderful riding and cowboy boots, saddles, hats, spurs, breeches, halters, helmets and more. Rick’s Saddle Shop is located at 40 Main Street in Englishtown. 

2. For the young at heart, stop at GameStop and pick up the latest video games for any gaming console - even classic games for old gaming systems. (Just can’t beat classics like GoldenEye for Nintendo64 or Sonic the Hedgehog on Sega). GameStop is located within the Epicenter Plaza at 55 Route 9 South in Manalapan. 

3. Purchase sports, concert and theater tickets at Monmouth Tickets, located in Ashely Plaza at 349 Route 9 South in Manalapan. The staff will help you find the perfect pair of tickets to upcoming events that would pique your gift recipient’s interest. Bonus: the staff is willing to beat any competitor’s price!
