While looking a gift horse in the mouth may turn a party into an etiquette lesson, 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 $25, you get $50 worth of soaps, body products, gifts, local goods, and more at Prelude in Portsmouth.
Prelude's multihued sanctum dazzles the senses with the wafting bouquet of fine soaps and lotions and the vibrant visuals of jewelry culled from the world over. Doctor Hauschka's lavender bath ($32.95) and Crabtree & Evelyn's lily body lotion ($22.25) imbue people with the inspirational power of flowers usually hoarded by sonnet-writing hummingbirds. The redolent array of beauty products and soaps includes a variety of imported goods and is flanked by a massive selection of gifts and accessories, such as gorgeous scarves made from rayon, silk, or wool ($3.50–$100). A tawny profusion of amber jewelry from Poland and Russia ($35–$500) accents outfits and encases moments of beauty, allowing them to be reanimated in ill-fated amusement parks of the distant future.
