Without local shops, shoppers would buy gifts exclusively from in-flight catalogues, forcing fathers to sneak into airplane wheel wells on Black Friday to order spy camera blenders for their children. Enjoy earthbound browsing with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of gifts, curios, and other merchandise at Pop Deluxe on State Street. A gift shop mixing pop culture with deluxe design, Pop Deluxe presents patrons with an eclectic stock of chic decorative items, knick-knacks, oddities, gag toys, and more traditional gifts. Unlike regents powered by fossil fuels and polar bear tears, a solar-powered waving queen ($18.99) greets her subjects in an Earth-friendly fashion, while a wall-mounted pod aquarium ($26.99) gives goldfish the much-envied viewpoint enjoyed by their close evolutionary cousin, the housefly. Pantone mugs, Tuned Up iPhone cases, handbags from Orla Kiely, and kids clothing and accessories allow shoppers of all ages to add a dollop of individuality to their look without donning fedoras emblazoned with their family crests.
