As if Savvy didn’t have enough temptations in Harbor East, along comes a new place to put the Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens to shame. Interior decorator Katie DeStefano’s Curiosity is a feast for the senses—all of them. From the breathtaking gold-leaf celestial maps by Christopher Wilcox to the food products by Bellocq Tea Atelier to the porcelain flower diffusers by Giardino di Fiori to the colorful enamel Gecko bracelets by Fornash (an O-List pick), it’s impossible not to find something you like. And with prices ranging from five bucks to $5,000, there’s a gift for everyone on your list. Savvy is particularly taken with the handstitched tea towels from Catstudio’s Geography Collection, silk-screened with maps from around the world; little beauties that satisfy both her frivolous and practical sides. 1000 Lancaster, entrance on S. Exeter, 410-727-6262,
