Looking a gift horse in the mouth may turn a party into an etiquette lesson, whereas 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 $7, you get a custom-made tote bag online from Joys of Thread (up to a $15 value). Each bag ships for free up to 5 miles outside Abilene city limits.
Joys of Thread’s proprietor customizes black or khaki tote bags with names and pictures rendered by hand. Email her your order details, and she’ll deftly monogram your name, the name of a gift recipient, or the sequence of runes that denotes your favorite Druidic king on the cloth in the color and font of your choice. Then, select a theme for the picture to adorn the bag, such as a favorite animal or scene from Hamlet.
