    Preppy handbook

    On Charles Street, pop-up shops provide smart last-minute gifts

    Some show their Boston spirit by sporting Pats jerseys and Red Sox caps. Others prefer a preppier approach. Boston native Matt Tara, who helms local brand Tucker Blair, which is famous for its needlepoint belts featuring nautical flags, black Labs, and the like, has set up a holiday pop-up shop. The winter collective also features preppy presents from other similarly styled lines Kiel James Patrick (woven bracelets), Jack Robie (shirts), Hudson Suttler (weekend bags), and NAADAM (cashmere sweaters). Open through Jan. 31. Needlepoint flasks by Tucker Blair, $65 at 111 Charles Street Winter Collective, 111 Charles St., Boston, 857-263-8295.
