It is better to give than to receive, which is why people who give themselves a gift must regift it to themselves in order to overcome the despair of receiving it. Break out of a perpetual loop with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of customizable gifts at Heloise’s Monograms and Gifts. This Groupon must be redeemed by January 31, 2012, when the shop closes its doors permanently.
The architect behind Heloise’s Monograms and Gifts calls upon 19 years of tailoring experience while personalizing inimitable gifts from the confines of her bright yellow shop. Shoppers can spread the holiday cheer along unoccupied mantles with festive stockings donning embroidered faces of gingerbread people, snowmen, and jovial tax collectors ($13.50 each). White Mardi Gras–inspired hand towels parade purple, gold, and emerald stitching ($12.95), and bright, geometric fabrics assemble to form spacious cinda b courier bags ($118). Gift givers can graciously fill stockings with Fabulous bath soaks ($6) or showcase their impeccable wrapping skills by bundling a bella bliss robe ($122) in decorative paper or undelivered letters to Santa Claus.
