Informed by an ever-growing body of developmental research, classes at The Music Class introduce tots to tunes and concepts that boost creativity and listening skills. In Music Pups (a $72 value) courses, children under 4 years of age gleefully sing, dance, and bang away on rudimentary instruments such as the drums or theremin. Four and 5-year-olds learn concepts of tone and rhythm in the Music Cats course (a $77 value), which lets kids experiment with keyboards before defending their dissertations on the narrative redundancies of "Old MacDonald Had a Farm." Each 45-minute course meets four times in one month-long segment, and includes CDs for parents to play at home to follow up on in-class tutelage. This Groupon may also be used toward The Music Class' ten-week music courses.
The staff members at The Frame Source treat each piece they assemble as if it were an heirloom to be passed from generation to generation. As such, they pay close attention to detail when framing up artwork, photos, and prints, ensuring frames come from high-quality collections and include timeless embellishments such as hand-finished Italian molding, frames flecked with 24-karat gold, and the rare all-caviar construction. The staff completes each order only after consulting extensively with clients to understand their expectations, and the store can pick up all orders and deliver them to clients' homes. Beyond framing, the staff extends its expertise into home décor by arranging silk flowers, restoring textiles, and curating a collection of lamps, fragrances, and candles.

Minutes of Love's photographer, Katie, nurtures natural light to bring out the picturesque personage in each of her subjects, emphasizing pastel colors, organic elements, and a vintage aesthetic. Prior to the session, Katie will conduct a phone or video-chat consultation to help her muse to decide on a plan for the photo shoot's look and offer styling tips to stand out or camouflage into the natural surroundings.

Memorialize times happy and cripplingly ecstatic, such as a child or pet's graduation, a wedding, or an engagement, for which Katie will submit images to any wedding blogs or online wedding magazines or etch the images into the surface of the moon.
