Though reading by candlelight is seemingly an ancient and romantic practice, the only people who actually did so were schoolchildren secretly hoping their textbooks would catch fire. Keep eyes healthy and papers safe with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of lamps, lampshades, and more at A Shade Better.
A Shade Better's show room glows from wall to wall with lamps and decorative illuminative accouterments. Keep Edison's ever-burning flame radiating beneath a large collection of lampshades ($14+), which distribute light evenly and serve as dunce caps for undisciplined candles. A range of lamps ($54+) mounted beneath bulbs promises to inflame the darkest of corridors, igniting a blaze of light from an array of Asian-inspired designs and animal-themed styles. Show your lamp and gifted child that you love them by crowning them with a decorative finial ($4.99+), from traditional adornments to dragon-shaped designs.
