Most gifts bear bright, eye-catching bows so birthday-present thieves make easier targets for snipers. Look a gift source in the mouth with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of gifts and home accessories at Gatherings.
Gatherings boasts a handpicked cornucopia of holiday décor and everyday wonderments for parties, birthdays, and unsolicited gift giving. Delicate La Lavande soaps ($4.50 each) ruthlessly compete to make hands smell like lilac, violet, coconut and pineapple, lemon verbena, or almond flower. A set of four Patience Brewster–designed flowered votive candles ($28) or Luminary’s scented soy tumbler candles ($22) brighten summer table settings and light up late-night backyard parties. Lori Mitchell's whimsical Uncle Doodle Dandy figurine ($36) does honor to the Fourth of July, Uncle's Day, and Top-hat-oween. Trumpette baby socks ($4.50/pair or $26.50/box of six pairs) mimic mary janes and high-tops in a wide spectrum of baby-accenting colors. Cake-inspired birthday crowns ($38) for kings and queens spicy up birthday festivities and grant wearers the ability to bypass primogeniture and single-handedly enact laws governing farmland usage.
