A few of my favorite things: Haptic Lab

If you've been inspired by either "Saving Mr. Banks" or "Mary Poppins" and want to go fly a kite, think about getting a kite that's a little out of the ordinary. You can even fuse your "Mary Poppins" spirit with a little bit of "Peter Pan" by buying a kite in the shape of a boat.

This boat costs about $40 and is ready to set sail into the clouds. If you're looking for something a bit more ordinary with a dash of style, try their diamond kites.

Haptic Lab combines craftsmanship with high tech in their wonderful but pricey quilts. Now if you haven't made a quilt, you've no idea how much time and labor it requires. Looking at them, they are worth the price and likely to become family heirlooms. This is not the stuff you allow your baby (human or otherwise) to drool upon. You might consider framing it or bringing it out for a bit of conversation and show.

Beware should you see one. You wouldn't want to spill red wine on a $200-$400 masterpiece. The old "I'll replace it" might spoil your budget for the year.

Haptic Lab was founded by an architect, Emily Fischer, and her team includes a graphic artist (Zeynabl Izadyar), and illustrator (Alayna Raslie), a quiltmaker (Natalie Stopka) and a few interns. They are located in Brooklyn.
