    A sock-monkey hat from Nirvana Designs.

    MONKEY BUSINESS: That indefatigable icon of kiddiehood, the sock monkey, is pressed into service to warm your noggin, whether you’re wee or all grown up. Woll sock monkey hat in adult and children’s sizes by Nirvanna Designs at Loom, 115 Seventh Avenue, Park Slope, Brooklyn; 718-789-0061.

    SCRUBS: Muji has updated a decidedly old-fashioned travel accessory – the mini-washboard, made for hand-washing wearables in your hotel room sink – in a wee (about 3”x9”), ultraportable aluminum wafer. Not much good to jug bands, though. $7.25 at Muji, 455 Broadway; 212-334-2002.

    WRAP STAR: Loving the Wrap boots from Toms – they’re cute, flat-heeled for fast walking, and do good in two different ways: One, the canvas-and-elastic materials are vegan, and two, for every pair of shoes they sell, Toms will give a pair of shoes to a child in need. Also? These boots would totally complete your mummy costume. $98, available online and via Infinity Shoes, 391 Broadway; 212-966-5201.
