    From the perfect store for gifting to a 120-year-old Swedish shoe shop, here's three spots you can't miss. (Published Tuesday, Oct 11, 2011)

    There's lots to see on this bustling street in Soho, from a hidden gem of a gift shop to the coldest dressing room in the city.

    Kiosk
    95 Spring Street
    This second-floor shop might just be the best-kept secret in Soho. Kiosk is packed to the hilt with international objects perfect for gifting -- from a necklace made from lotto tickets to a colorful Indian blankets -- and most of the items for sale are less than $50.

    Comptoir des Cotonniers
    155 Spring Street
    For those looking to dress like a chic Parisian, this brand delivers both on style and fit -- all at surprisingly affordable prices. The big winners here are the separates, from swing skirts to fitted coats.

    Tretorn
    150 Spring Street
    This Swedish brand is celebrating its 120th anniversary, and while it's likely best-known for its colorful rain boots, the truly iconic pieces to snap up here are the retro tennis shoes.

    Burton
    106 Spring Street
    In addition to eye-catching snowboards and warm-weather gear, this shop boasts one of the best dressing rooms in the city: "The Cold Room," a space kept at freezing temperatures so shoppers can test the warmth of the gear they're purchasing.

    Spring Street Market
    43 Spring Street
    While this little market might not boast the expansive vendors of competitors in Brooklyn or on the Lower East Side, the wares are colorful and the prices are low.

    Chanel
    139 Spring Street
    Whether you can actually afford one of the brand's quilted carryalls or not, the iconic label's Soho outpost is one of the brand's best for window-shopping and snooping.
