Oysters are traditionally viewed as an aphrodisiac, which explains why half the world's supermodels were briefly married to Popeye. Savor the sea’s most romantic pearl with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get an oyster gift box including three-dozen fresh oysters and a stainless-steel oyster knife from New York Oyster Company (a $115 value).
Since establishing New York Oyster Company in 1857, the Northrop family farmers have dependably supplied five-star restaurants from New York to Tokyo with their lovingly cultivated crops of fresh oysters. Beloved by Vanity Fair and Serious Eats, these mighty mollusks ship straight from the shore to the front door in an oyster gift box stuffed with three-dozen harvests from eco-friendly, sustainably aqua-cultured nurseries. Treat the face-chute to a half-shell of well-bred kumamoto, rich blue-point, and savory royal-miyagi oysters, all perfectly poised for broiling, smoking, steaming, slurping, or dressing a bashful mermaid. The gift box also includes a handy stainless-steel oyster knife, which cracks, shucks, and plucks stubborn shellfish open in ways that an oyster spork could never fathom.
