Mxyplyzyk – A New York City Trove for Unique Gifts

By Lakshmi:

Who?  Anyone who loves shopping for one of a kind gifts that are quirky or bring a unique sense of design.  Of course, those gifts could be for yourself!

What? Mxyplyzyk, a Greenwich Village store whose name I still can’t say properly, but really enjoy visiting when I am in New York City.

How? The store is located at

125 Greenwich Avenue (w. 13th street)

New York, New York 10014

Phone: 1-800-243-9810

Why?  The first time I heard about Mxyplyzyk was when a design magazine featured a clock from the store.  It was shaped like a set of bound books, in black&white or color and was a piece that was creative, fun and intriguing.  Going on to their website, I discovered a whole bunch of products with a unique marriage of form and function.  After a couple of walking adventures where I did not manage to find this little store, what I eventually discovered was a little gem that had my spark plugs ignited for one of a kind holiday and event gifts.

From the Blink Ketchup and Mustard Dispensers (yes they blink when you flip the bottle over) to the funky bucket rocking chairs, there are items that range the price spectrum.  Even if you walk out empty-handed (very hard to do), you’ll have a smile brought on by the interesting products.

If you are a fan of design and some funky ideas, please do visit their website at
