CONTRAST: What we love about this vermillion Marlow bag by Chloe is that it sort looks like the lovechild of the Hermès Kelly and a boho leather sling-satchel you might see on Lauren Hutton circa 1972 – crisp and elegant, but a little surfer-girl around the edges. $1960 at Bergdorf Goodman, 754 5th Avenue; 212-753-7300.
PLUGGED: In what’s now an eagerly-awaited holiday tradition, the editors of Wired magazine have hand picked more than 150 gadgets, gizmos and other must-haves for the nerds on your shopping list and stuffed them into the Wired Pop-Up Shop, open in the West Village through December 27. You can even reboot your stamina at the Wired Café while you’re there. 415 West 13th Street; 212-645-0210.
HALF FULL: Everything you’ve been wanting to add to your home just got cheaper at the BoConcept store megasale in Soho: Buy one accessory, get one 50% off between now and Christmas Eve. Drop some clues to the Santa in your life and you’ll never want for a candle holder, lamp, or cushion again. 69 Greene Street, 212-966-8188.
