You can find gifts for your bicurious friends at this one-stop shop, which satisfies both design junkies and tech geeks.

Triangle Necklace, $70
Your eco-conscious BFF is sure to swoon over a laser-cut bamboo necklace. On second thought, you might want to grab two. For a friendship necklace, of course.

Key Ring Corkscrew, $20
Let’s be honest: Your posse needs corkscrews on their key chains way more often than knives.

Cell Phone Headset, $50
The perfect gift for the technologically impaired, a throwback Yubz headset is made for parents who still can’t figure out how to change their ringtones.

Suspicious Painting, $80
Horrorphiles will scream in delight for a one-of-a-kind painting by J. Richel that looks as if it were delivered straight from the Haunted Mansion.

Stuffed Log Kit, $25
Turn anyone into a Log Lady with the tongue-in-cheek DIY log pillow kit from My Imaginary Boyfriend. She’ll just add stuffing and stitch, and your friend will be cradling her stump in no time.

The Curiosity Shoppe, 855 Valencia Street, between 19th and 20th Streets (415-671-5384 or curiosityshoppeonline.com).
