There’s a current Groupon offer of $20 for a $40 FTD gift certificate. I don’t know anything about flowers, florists or being romantic, but I do know a deal. Valentine’s Day is coming up and someone you know will appreciate flowers.
Note: I probably won’t buy this.

American Apparel has always posed a slight moral quandary for me. On one hand, the company prides itself for manufacturing all of its clothes in the USA. Believe it or not, AA is actually the country’s largest clothing manufacturer. On the other hand you have Dov Charney. I would prefer to buy affordable clothing, made by fairly compensated workers, but few CEOs are as synonymous with their companies, as Dov, and haven’t exactly been itching to give that guy my money
That’s where Groupon comes into play. Right now, Groupon is selling $50 American Apparel gift certificates for $25. If you’re the rationalizing type (and aren’t we all), you can tell yourself that AA has already sold these gift certificates, and that you’re actually giving your money to the people at Groupon.
Pinpoint OCBD $58 (29 real dollars)
I’m not a big proponent of S/M/L/XL sizing for dress shirts, but whatever. I’d probably pick up a flannel or hoodie.
Buy Groupon here. Sale ends Sunday, November 21st.

For the next 2 days and 10 hours, Groupon is offering $100 in Indochino credit for $50.
Indochino is one of the bigger names in online made-to-measure suits. If you’re a difficult fit off-the-rack, or just wanted to dip your toes into the world of MTM without making a serious financial commitment, here’s your chance.
Navy Pick Stitch Suit $190 with discount
Reviews of Indochino product around the web are mixed, but they come mostly from places like styleforum, where people are really, really serious about clothes. This is stupidly cheap made to measure, and they have a perfect fit guarantee. I think they give up to $75 for tailoring if you need alterations. If the fit can not be achieved for that price, they’ll make you a new one.
