Three Wishes and a Bracelet

Clay Pot

Brazilets wish bracelets.

THREEFER: Wrap a Brazilet around your wrist and tie three knots for three wishes; as the lore goes, when the bracelet falls off naturally, your wishes will come true. Feel free to be greedy with those wishes -- your purchase goes towards helping save Brazilian rainforests via The Nature Conservancy’s Plant A Billion program. $5 each at The Clay Pot, 162 7th Avenue, Park Slope, Brooklyn; 800-989-3579.

NOTED: If Italy’s Moleskines are the sleek jet-setters of notebooks, American-made Field Notes memo books are their sturdy, masculine, Midwestern counterparts. A three-pack of these pocket-sized puppies will run you $9.95 at Save Khaki, 327 Lafayette Street, 212-925-0134.

NEW JACK: Take Coldplay and the Killers and run them through a Robbie Williams filter, and you have the superfamous-in-England-but-unknown-here Jack Peñate – whose second album, “Everything is New,” comes out tomorrow. Buy it ($12.99) at Sounds, 20 Saint Marks Place; 212-677-3444‎.
