Looking for a unique gift? Nab some plush toys handmade by more than 30 artists and crafters from around the world at the “Luv-able + Hug-able” exhibit at Gallery Hanahou (611 Broadway between Bleecker and W Houston Sts, 646-486-6586) running Thu 4-Jan 7. The plushies will all be available for purchase online starting Fri 5, at galleryhanahou.com. If you’d rather DIY, artist Jenny Harada will teach you how to hand-sew your very own ornament-size toy at the gallery (Dec 13 1--4pm, $20; space is limited, sign up by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org).
