The aptly-named Things Finer specializes in vintage, antique and estate items such as jewelry and silver. In addition, they carry a carefully curated selection of new items. Opened in La Fonda on the Plaza in 1978, they opened a second shop at La Fonda in 2011. Robert Pettus, the original owner and his wife Elizabeth travel the world searching for unique items for their discerning clientele. Prices run from $8 to $80,000. On the lower end, shoppers will find things such as Christmas ornaments, stationery and candles. Shoppers will discover time-honored gifts such as writing instruments (Visconti and Montegrappa pens), cuff links and watches. There's also a selection of "niche" fragrances including Jardin d'Orient (they're the exclusive U.S. dealer). The hot thing this season: limited-edition Loup Noir scarves; they're flying out the door. Both shops are packed with fabulous finds for those special people on your list.
