While browsing shops during her travels in New York, Australia, and Europe, Alisa West Folk's lifelong dream to own a boutique only grew stronger. Her own wish was granted when she and her mom, Kathie, opened wish.list boutique. The mom-and-daughter team stocks the shop with finds such as Deborah Lippmann and Butter London nail polish, Deux Lux handbags, and Hanky Panky underwear. Alisa especially loves the Voluspa candles—"The smells are unbelievable," she says, singling out Santiago Huckleberry as her favourite aroma.

It's Alisa and Kathie's passion for their products that makes wish.list boutique a treasure trove for shoppers. They have to "fall in love" with something in order to consider it worthy of the boutique's shelves. "Anything we would want to use or feel like we need in our lives, we want in the store," Alisa says. That includes a focus on paraben-free, organic, and less-toxic items, including John Masters Organic haircare products.

The store brings a chic vibe to Kitsilano with white paint, a damask accent wall, and butterfly motif, all lit by chandelier. To keep faces equally fresh, the staff's professional makeup artist gives complimentary makeup applications and cosmetics advice on Thursdays, Fridays, and some Saturdays. The boutique also hosts events on occasion—they threw a lipstick and wine-pairing party for their one-year anniversary in 2010, and Real Housewives of Vancouver star Mary Zilba helped them celebrate posh polishes with a 50 Shades of Summer party.

In addition to feminine accessories and beauty products, Alisa and Kathie also curate a selection of baby gifts, and the shop is a popular place to pick up presents. "A lot people come in looking for a gift and then they end up buying something for themselves," Alisa says.

Alisa knows she's doing her job right when she's out at a restaurant or around town and someone asks her where she got her bag. It's even more gratifying when she hears their response: "They say, 'Oh, I love that store!'" she says.

The Great Pacific Diving Company is a five-star PADI instructor-development centre that trains future deep-sea explorers, with certifications ranging from open-water diver to instructor. Today's Groupon is good for an all-inclusive open-water diving program, which includes five pool dives, four ocean dives, and PADI open-water diver certification for autonomous dives up to 60' (upon completion). Great Pacific Diving features a private training pool, reliable diving gear, and e-learning integration that allows students to complete the academic portion of the certification at home or within a WiFi-equipped volcano before enjoying splishing and splashing in real time (e-learning available for additional charge). Local dives are normally conducted in Howe Sound, though worldly wanderers can opt to hop onto one of Great Pacific's tropical trips to Cozumel, the Red Sea, or the Queen's kiddie pool. Additionally, if diving turns to buying, Groupon customers also receive 10% off personal gear purchased during the course, which can be wrapped up or worn home to express dominance over landlocked neighbours.

Uber's all about the ingredients. A daily face cream—designed to leave skin moisturized and with a touch of golden glow—ups the ante with extracts of sea kelp that can help retain the skin's smoothness, elasticity, and appeal to otters. Frankincense extracts swirl through the A-List Fix toner for normal and combination skin to help stimulate circulation, while apricot and walnut shells help to slough off depleted skin cells in the A-List Fix exfoliator.

Anchor your love letters to Derek Jeter with a piece of the cathedral of baseball. Today's side deal puts a little piece of history on your desk, end table, or upturned plastic milk crate. For $39, plus a flat $10 shipping fee (not included in today's Groupon), you get a Yankee Stadium final season crystal paperweight from Steiner Sports, an $80 value. Each paperweight is additionally weighted with actual infield dirt from the old Yankee Stadium, dirt that itself bore the weight of legends. Possess a piece of baseball history, and shove it in the face of your Red Sox–loving friends.

Delight the Yankee fan in your life with a gift that scores high marks in the dual criteria for gift quality: heaviness and silt content. This deal is perfect for propping open liquor cabinet doors, getting your cat to stay, and keeping your important documents weighed down while you sip a cold one and watching A-Rod shatter yet another record. Each paperweight is laser engraved with the logo for the final season in the old stadium and includes an MLB hologram. Grab this deal and hold on to valuable memories and valuable slips of paper.

Note: A flat $10 shipping fee will apply.

Who is the Linda behind Linda's Quilt Shoppe? Well, for starters, she's a quilting expert who's been in the business since 1992. She's also the person responsible for assembling the store's more than 2,500 bolts of fabric. To most customers however, Linda is the woman who greets them with a friendly smile and helpful advice on creating their next quilt square.

Linda works alongside Jim Findlay, whose own business background dates back to a childhood spent in his father's store. With their powers combined, the Findlays sell pretty much everything a sewing or quilting enthusiast could possibly need, including embroidery and sewing machines. They also host a variety of sewing classes and "fat quarter" clubs, in which enrolled members received fabric samples and patterns every three months.
