Henry David Thoreau distrusted any enterprise that required new clothes, which is why he abandoned his career as a French maid. Embrace bold new outfits and international gear with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40, worth of Italian-inspired gifts and clothing at La Bomboniera.
La Bomboniera stocks its shelves with clothing, home goods, and collectables, all imbued with the spirit of the green, white, and red tricolor. Show support for old-country footballers with an array of Italian soccer jerseys ($19.95+), or don a souvenir Italian T-shirt ($14.95+), which, like Ford's most popular car and karate's most effective stance, is modeled after the letter "T." The shop also helps dress up homes by purveying picture frames ($4.95+) and espresso makers ($24.95+)—outfitted with steam wands calibrated to hiss out frothy renditions of "That's Amore."
