Big-name brands will always have a place under the tree, but this year we're skipping the department-store masses in favor of more uncommon gifts from one of the city's snazzy holiday pop-ups:

Find something for your guy at GQ's holiday menswear temporary store. The magazine has teamed with Park & Bond (Gilt Groupe's new site for men) to sell sleek Jack Spade briefcases, Oliver Peoples sunglasses and vintage Rolex watches. Through December 18. 414 W. 14th St. (between Ninth Ave. and Washington St.)

Arbiter of hip glasses Warby Parker is showcasing products and demos from the city's most beloved mom-and-pops at its Holiday Spectacle Bazaar. Besides nabbing a pair of $95 tortoiseshell frames, we're taking candy-making classes by Papabubble and DIY hat lessons from Yestadt Millinery. Through January 8. 45 Grand St. (between W. Broadway and Thompson St.)

Just in time for David Fincher's film adaptation of the best-selling Swedish trilogy, H&M launches its Girl with the Dragon Tattoo collection (created by the movie's costume designer). Expect strong, gritty fashion, tribal earrings and edgy wedge boots at the Meatpacking pop-up. Through December 17. 72 Gansevoort St. (at Horatio St.)

Nolita's Deck the Halls is a trove of eclectic curiosities from on-the-rise artisans. We'll pick up a Cowichan sweater from BKLYN Dry Goods, mixing bowls from Eric Bonnin Ceramics and some ginger syrup from Morris Kitchen. Through December 22. 32 Prince St. (at Mott St.)
