See this years best gift ideas from the Union Square Holiday Market.

The Union Square Holiday Market offers a lot more than just holiday-themed gifts. Here are some of the best spots to find jewelry, artwork, and foodie delights. (Head over to the official website to download a handy map of the vendors.)

Victoria Beckerman Studio
Booth F14
There are a lot of great jewelry booths at the market, but Beckerman's clean, simple designs are both fresh and wearable. Added bonus: Many of the styles are under $100.

AnimalSleepStories
Booth C20
Much like jewelry, artwork makes a great gift because it's both personal and one-size-fits-all. Daria Tessler's dreamy portraits of animals are utterly charming, and would work as a gift for both children and adults.

Brooklyn Brew Shop
Booth A29
If you don't feel lke trekking out to Brooklyn for a taste of the borough's oft-publicized foodie delights (whether at the Brooklyn Flea or elsewhere), Brooklyn comes to Manhattan in the form of a series of booths at the Union Square Holiday Market. First up, the Brooklyn Brew Shop, where you can snap up your own home brew kit.

Brooklyn Salsa Company
Booth D28
The ingredients in these salsas are sourced consciously, and you can choose from a variety of flavors from The Green (a Staten Island-dedicated tomatillo verde) to The Hot (an explosive blend for Brooklyn).

Kings County Jerky Co.
Booth D26
This Brooklyn-based company's brand of grass-fed beef jerky is so good that their online store is already sold out for the season. Thus, your best chance of snapping up the goods -- from the Classic to the Korean BBQ -- is at the Union Square Holiday Market.

Bar Suzette
Booth G01
You can't take it with you, but we'd heartily recommend snapping up one of this booth's fantastic crepes as a shopping snack. The butter-and-lemon crepe is particularly spectacular.

Karma Living
Booth A32
The colorful textiles at this booth would cheer even the coldest apartment this winter; Our favorites were the brightly-hued blankets and quilts.
