Mxyplyzyk
Don’t be put off by the seemingly unpronounceable name (it’s “MIX-EE-PLIZ-IK,” after a villain in Superman comics); head right to this West Village store to get your gift shopping for kids and adults done in one fell swoop. In operation since 1992, the shop offers a tightly edited but respectable assortment of quirky and well-designed items for everyone on your list. 125 Greenwich Ave at 13th St (800-243-9810, mxyplyzyk.com).
