5 Fun Gift Ideas for Childish Souls

Annie's Blue Ribbon General Store's Prankish Delights

inflatable fruitcake!

We love the Boerum Hill outpost of this quirky corner store, but its Upper West Side pop-up (tomorrow through December 24) makes lunch break shopping so much easier. Stuff these irreverent finds in your loved ones’ stockings.

Inflatable Fruitcake, $8
Though the unnaturally hued delicacy isn’t quite delicious, it’s lovely in a kind of alien way. Mail a pump-up dessert to anyone who delights in bizarre desk accessories.

DIY Shower Curtain, $33
Singing in the shower is for amateurs. Drawing in the shower, now that’s really something. Let aqua Picasso doodle on a blank curtain. Bonus: It’s more mildew resistant than most plastics.

Tiny Tarot Cards, $5.50
Barely bigger than a postage stamp, even the Hanged Man looks less intimidating. Aspiring psychics can practice in the smallest of spaces.

Star Gazers Kit, $20
The most stars you’ve seen in NYC are on the ceiling of Grand Central Terminal. A telescope in the kitschy kit helps scout constellations, and the cute animé tin doubles as a treasure chest.

A Field Guide to Typestaches, $24
’Stache lovers and typography geeks alike will be tickled by the framable riff on lip fuzz. We especially love Mr. Didot (the font name and corresponding image both conjure a pencil-thin fashion worn by a Frenchman).

Annie’s Blue Ribbon General Store Pop-Up, 2408 Broadway, between West 88th and West 89th Streets (212-877-7733 or blueribbongeneralstore.com).
