The Wanderlust Shopping List

This time of year, getting away feels essential. Even if it’s just to a new neighborhood.


For the next few months, cold weather will turn us into hermit crabs, never leaving our apartments but making an escape plan—to a beach, a piazza off a winding street, a mountain perfect for hiking—puts the imagination to good use. Hagstrom Map & Travel Center (51 W. 43rd St., nr. Sixth Ave.; 212-398-1222) is a trove of maps, games, and puzzles designed to stimulate wanderlust. These tilting, spinning mini-globes ($9.99 each) make excellent home or desk toys, and they’re a good reminder that Earth is smaller than you think.
