Unlike a jar of sunlight, a bottle of rainwater or a necklace made of molten lava, flowers are an all-natural gift that makes people feel loved. Celebrate earth's bounty with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of flowers, plants, and merchandise at Lee's Flower & Card Shop.
The floral design team at Lee's Flower & Card Shop has been arranging vivid bouquets from within the cozy boutique since 1945. Flower enthusiasts can add a verdant touch to house, tree house, or tree house of parliament with a Euro-wrapped bouquet that packages three roses, five chrysanthemums, four alstroemeria, and two gerbera daisies ($30). Customers can practice husbandry on a rubber tree houseplant ($30) or give a cuddly gift with the Mary Meyer stuffed animal bears ($9.95 for a small). Lee's Flower & Card Shop also carries 18-inch mylar ($4 each) and latex balloons ($1 each), which add a festive splash to birthday parties or prison riots. Pen a congratulatory greeting on a card designed by local artist Kofi Tyus ($2.50+), or apologize for forgetting your giraffe's birthday with a jumbo card ($7.50).
