The fully insured technicians at Fine Finishings send colorful ripples through dwellings using the patron's choice of premium Benjamin Moore or O'Leary paint. Upon arrival, color gurus consult with homeowners and their uninspired pet chameleons to determine the rooms most in need of a makeover. With a simultaneous knuckle crack, technicians then set to work slathering walls in the pre-discussed hue. Fine Finishings also offers a one-year warranty on paint and handiwork, meaning painters will return to perform repairs should the paint chip or develop an embarrassing blush from coming into contact with too many '80s heartthrob posters.

Madeleines Bakehouse takes its inspiration from the French treat known as a madeleine—a shell-shaped cake with a buttery crust and sponge-like texture. Originating in the city of Commercy in the 18th century, madeleines earned their name when a girl named Madeleine baked a batch that made it to the mouth of Louis XV's wife, who shared them with a loveable stray who would later win the world's heart by starring in Homeward Bound. This deal gets you a dozen of these majestic pastries, superb for dunking into an afternoon tea or submerging into your backyard pool of chocolate. Madeleines Bakehouse uses local and organic eggs in all of its recipes—including banana bread, coffee cake, and chocolate bouchon—ensuring high levels of vitamins and a soft richness.
