25 gifts under $25 No. 25: New York state love charm

il_570xN.302214008

If you’ve got a friend who moved here and instantly fell in love with New York (and why shouldn’t they, really?) give them an opportunity to tell people how much they love it without using words. And this isn’t from some fly-by-night operation looking to take advantage of NY puppy love: Brooklyn Charm, the folks behind this necklace have been profiled in this very space, and are going strong with their own Williamsburg storefront where they make plenty of brokester-friendly jewelry pieces. They sell other state charms, but come on, why would you even want one repping another state? You live in New York now, and therefore don’t have time for places like “Ohio” or “Kansas.” New York state love charm, $16, available here or 145 Bedford Avenue
