Gift shopping is like a game of poker: you can take a chance and put your money down, but you still may end up going home with a gang of smoking dogs. Don’t place bets on the same old gifts with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get $80 toward shoes, accessories, and home décor at Burnt Sugar in Fremont.
The style mavens of Burnt Sugar seek out beautiful, trendy items to adorn their shelves. Slip into a cozy pair of Bensimon low-top canvas sneakers, a French shoe with continental swagger and kaleidoscopic dreams of grandeur ($65), or tap into harmonic time-telling abilities with the Picadilly wristwatch ($70). Obtaining a rosy facial glow without childhood photo albums is easier with Colorme Cheeks and Eyes, a puff-top makeup applicator that neatly brushes skin with colorful hues ($34). Lavender shea butter soap ensures you're always smelling sweet ($8). Though Burnt Sugar posts a portion of its gifting gems online, a large number remain covertly sparkling inside the Fremont storefront among pairs of cowboy boots and rumored sightings of the Pink Panther.
