Without gifts, the only way to commemorate a special occasion would be to burst into song, burst into tears, or burst a piñata filled with buffalo-head nickels. Put away the broomstick and show that you care with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of handmade crafts, gifts, and home accessories at The Escape Fine Crafts and Gifts in Georgetown.
The Escape’s bright store bustles with colorful, handmade crafts, a treasure trove of gifts, and delightful home accents. Showcasing the handiwork of more than 500 artists and craftsmen, The Escape curates a rotating store packed with gifts under $25, such as a charming giraffe backpack ($21). Knickknacks vie for attention on the densely decorated shelves, eager to brighten up any kitchen or outdoor space with sun catchers, stone coasters, and dishwashing garden gnomes. Or give the gift of light with a cranberry Esque candle ($21), a lightly scented present for loved ones or a passive-aggressive message for smelly roommates.
