While looking a gift horse in the mouth may turn a party into an etiquette lesson, looking a gift basilisk in the eyes will turn the birthday girl to stone. Give curse-free gifts and goods with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of home furnishings and accessories at homebody.
Independently owned and operated by DC natives Erin Mara and Henriette Fourcade, the 2,500-square-foot loft-like space at homebody is filled with contemporary furnishings and home products. Quaff eco-conscious colas from a reusable Eco Can drinking bottle, with a biodegradable and BPA-free body that is safe for use in microwaves, dishwashers, and decommissioned Mars rovers ($14.50). Square meals can be squirreled away inside a Box Appetit lunch box ($24.95), which can be, in turn, slipped into a specially designed bag ($7.95). And inside the shop, eyeballs will get a chuckle from quirky doorstops shaped like leaves ($10 each), high-heeled shoes ($9 each), and members of the Partridge family. The store combines designs from renowned and up-and-coming designers, and benefits from the owners' combined 40 years of experience. Though not included in today's Groupon, homebody also adorns abodes with interior-design services.
