In our email age, old-fashioned written correspondence is a refreshing throwback, like drinking a soda made with real sugar or watching the president hand someone a sword. Write a thank-you note to the past with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of stationery, gifts, and more at Present Perfect, located on Southwest Washington Street. Today’s deal is valid in-store only.
For 29 years, Present Perfect has dispensed an eclectic array of elegant and artistic stationery and gifts. Customers can search the assortment of greeting cards ($1.95–$15)—many of which are sourced from rare lines and Northwest artists—to find the perfect card for wishing a coworker happy birthday or congratulating their cat on becoming a grandmother. Peruse the shelves for present-preparers such as gift wrap ($2.50+) and ribbon ($0.25–$6 per yard), or stock up on stationery ($0.50 per sheet) to give a friend the gift of a handwritten ode to margarine. A selection of home décor—including seasonally oriented items—enlivens drab domiciles, just as a photo album ($25) enhances bland memories and a stock of stickers ($0.25–$6) spruces up depressing toaster ovens.
