Looking a gift horse in the mouth may turn a party into an etiquette lesson, whereas 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 $12, you get $25 worth of eclectic gifts at The Freckled Frog in Glen Allen.
Recently founded with the intention of stocking a gift for every occasion, taste, and temperament, The Freckled Frog outfits present presenters with dinnerware, furniture, home décor, and wine accessories. Garden and house flags ($10.50–$25.99) add flavor to front yards and politely ward off literate insects, while a wide array of candles ($10–$22.99) can freshen up the home's long-forgotten oubliette. Otherwise, prep for upcoming dinner parties with wine glasses ($14.99–$19.50), cocktail napkins ($5.50), and an aroma-wafting Reed diffuser ($21.50) that spares hostesses the expense of hiring a department store perfume sprayer to spritz guests every time they leave the table.
