TWEET THING: This artisanal find from Michele Varian is the perfect upgraded hostess gift: Along with a good bottle, give them something beautiful to open it with. An exquisitely detailed bird, hand-carved of bone, is delicate looking but surprisingly sturdy – it’d have to be, to do the job at hand – and when not in use, it makes for a sculptural objet worthy of display. (Screw-tops need not apply.) GET IT: $138 at Michele Varian, 35 Crosby Street; 212-226-1076.
