Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

New York apartments are notoriously small, so finding home goods that do double duty is a necessity. At this shop (whose impossible-to-pronounce name refers to an old Superman comic-book character), almost every practical item also functions just as well decoratively. Every inch of this 1,500-square-foot shop is lined with giftable utilitarian items packaged in hyperstylish exteriors. Come here for quirky housewares like a porcelain molar-shaped toothbrush holder ($22), a dish scrubber that looks like a porcupine ($13) and a mug set that stacks up to resemble a totem pole ($65). Though playfulness is certainly a theme, there are also organically influenced pieces, including reclaimed-wood nesting tables (three for $315) and grasscloth-covered lamps ($65). Stumped on what to get that person who has everything? We’re pretty sure he doesn’t already own a neon birdhouse, wiener-dog-print pajamas or a cat-shaped flashlight. Random and zany, the fun toys and gadgets here are sure to bring out your inner kid.
