Add a Little Brooklyn to your Holidays: Join Bklyn’s Guide to Good

Still looking for some last-minute gift ideas? Want to know how to make a Brooklyn Gin Punch for the family gathering? Check out Join Bklyn's Guide to Good - a collaboration of independent artists and shops from Brooklyn (including DUMBO's own Damn Digital Studio).

We spoke to Hannah Kreiswirth, one of the co-founders of the DUMBO-based Join Bklyn to get her insight on the Guide to Good.

What inspired Join Bklyn to want to put the Guide to Good together? 

Join Bklyn is dedicated to showcasing the best content across arts and culture.  Together with BKLYNhaus, we decided to partner with inspiring individuals and businesses to produce a book of fantastic content geared towards enjoying every minute of the holidays.  Whether it's wow-ing your family (or in-laws!) in the kitchen (not to mention with cocktails by the fire), having some paper dolls and coloring pages on hand for the wee ones or remedying your lack of present-buying this year with some DIY jewelry or last-minute photography-friendly gift ideas, this guide is sure to give you the tools to succeed.

Why would you recommend people check out the Guide to Good?

Everyone should check out this year's holiday Guide to Good because it's just that.  It's just good stuff: our resolutions are realistic, our activities are fun and our recipes are drool-worthy.  Take advantage of some amazing advice, ideas and activities to make this holiday an enjoyable and memorable one.

Any tips on how to use the guide to it's fullest potential?

As we peruse through the guide, we're reminded that not only would this guide be great for the last-minute holiday shopper, but that most of the gifts are good all year-round. Who wouldn't want to be treated to SkeeterNYC’s Caramelized Brussels Sprouts w/Garlic, Pinenuts & Bacon in the early days of spring?
