$39 for a Fir Christmas Tree Up to 10 Feet Tall at Toby's Christmas Trees in Walnut Creek (Up to $80 Value)

Like an eccentric uncle, the holidays often sneak up on people and leave tinsel wherever they go. Deck the halls with today's Groupon: for $39, you get up to a 10-foot grand fir or douglas fir Christmas tree at Toby's Christmas Trees in Walnut Creek (up to an $80 value).

For 33 years, Toby's Christmas Trees' annual Heather Farm Park location has sprouted fresh-cut, natural trees shipped directly from tree farms in Oregon. Arborists raise douglas firs and grand firs to their prime, pampering each evergreen with eight years of care and daily manicures at their farm. At Toby's, holiday enthusiasts can peruse rows of trees to locate their favorite living-room enhancer, which Toby's crew will then haul to cars and secure with twine for the ride home. If needed, the holiday horticulturists can snip branches from the bough to help fit stands or sleeper sofas.

One Ticket to A Johnny Mathis Christmas at Paramount Theatre in Oakland on December 2 at 8 p.m. Two Options Available.

Christmas music embodies the spirit of the season, much as the National Anthem evokes Independence Day and the ambient compositions of Philip Glass reflect the existential angst of Valentine’s Day. Treat ears to Yuletide tunes with today’s GrouponLive deal to A Johnny Mathis Christmas at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland on Friday, December 2, at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. Choose between the following options:

  • For $36, you get one balcony-rear ticket (up to a $72 value, including all fees).
  • For $47, you get one orchestra-rear ticket (up to a $94 value, including all fees).

Two-time Grammy Hall of Fame inductee Johnny Mathis drapes traditional holiday songs in the golden tinsel of his tenor. From elegant pop classics such as “Chances Are” and “Wonderful, Wonderful” to his storied take on “The Christmas Song,” Johnny’s inimitable lilt has given listeners an oasis from passing fads such as spandex jazz for nearly six decades. On an anniversary tour celebrating 56 years of melody making, Johnny greets fans with an effervescent smile and the world’s luckiest microphone, crooning Yuletide carols that evoke toasty hearths and mistletoe canoodling, and that warm the ears like a hunting cap filled with spiced cider. Built to adorn a 1930s movie palace, the Paramount Theatre's art-deco mosaics, carved-glass fountain of light, and gilded sculptural details firmly prevent the evening's fuzzy feelings from escaping the auditorium.

$49 for a Regenerating Facial at Helene’s Body & Skin Care in Atherton ($110 Value)

Smooth skin denotes optimal health, a habit of wearing sunscreen, and a staunch refusal to fall asleep on a pillow made of Legos. Make more appropriate impressions with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a regenerating facial at Helene’s Body & Skin Care in Atherton (a $110 value).

Licensed aesthetician Helene Corrales applies knowledge culled from the San Francisco Institute of Aesthetics and Cosmetology and National Holistic Institute to douse façades with a cornucopia of age-defying facial services. During the 75-minute regenerating facial, Helene combines a selection of professional-grade products into a concoction that deeply cleanses and hydrates all skin types. The facial ameliorates the woes of faces stricken with dryness from air travel, wrinkles from stress, and Lone Ranger masks from the Dollar Store. Façades emerge from the regenerating facial feeling refreshed and imbued with a glow normally reserved for radioactive fireflies.

$125 for a Zipline Experience for Two at Zip Tahoe at Kirkwood Mountain Resort ($250 Value)

$125 for a Zipline Experience for Two at Zip Tahoe at Kirkwood Mountain Resort ($250 Value)

Ziplines originally were invented for just two functions: sneaking hamburgers over the Berlin Wall and zazzing up presidential entrances to State of the Union addresses. Practice grand entrances with today's Groupon: for $125, you get a ziplining experience for two people at Zip Tahoe at Kirkwood Mountain Resort (a $250 value).

Zip Tahoe's 2.5-hour winter ziplining tour grants guests stunning canopy views as they cruise down six sturdy cables overlooking Kirkwood Ski Resort. Groups of 4–10 riders make their way to the first platform via chairlift, enjoying breathtaking views of the Sierra mountains as they cruise above skiers, snowboarders, and adolescent reindeer taking Santa's sleigh for a joy ride. Riders then strap into harnesses before whizzing along 400 feet of cable to a 12’x12’ platform, where a gravity system helps them to slow to a halt. Two sky bridges intersperse zips, giving gliders a chance to enjoy canopy sights from 75 feet up without crashing a squirrel monkey’s couch. Groups can sip on steamy cups of complimentary hot chocolate upon descent.

$60 for Automotive Tinting for Two Windows at Mr. Tint ($125 Value)

Window tinting gives cars a mysterious air and increases their chances of getting cast as the lead in a film noir. Make your car a star with today's Groupon: for $60, you get automotive tinting for two windows at Mr. Tint (a $125 value). This Groupon can be used on either the driver and passenger windows or back passenger windows.

Armed with a computerized cutting system, Mr. Tint's experienced technicians fit rides with custom-trimmed films from brands such as Solar Gard and Huper Optik. Staffers tint two windows with film designed to reject up to 63 percent of solar energy—protecting interior surfaces from fading or developing an uneven tan. The ultraviolet-ray-blocking tints fit snugly on windows thanks to Mr. Tint's cutting-system database, which holds more than 1,200 vehicle patterns and waist sizes. After the two-hour service, patrons can confidently drive off knowing their tints are backed by a lifetime warranty against bubbling, peeling, and discoloration.

$25 for $50 Worth of Bicycle Accessories, Rentals, and Tune-Ups at Summit Bicycles

Originally, only the most well-to-do members of society could afford bicycles, a fact they openly flaunted by outfitting spokes with rare Andrew Carnegie rookie-year trading cards. Take back the streets with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of biking accessories, rentals, and tune-ups at Summit Bicycles, valid at the Burlingame and Los Gatos locations.

A full-service tune-up nets worthy rides extra attention as the experienced techs perform additional services such as a wheel truing and headset adjustment ($90).

Up to 75% off Small, Medium, and Large Photo-Print Reproductions on Gallery-Wrapped Canvas from Picture It On Canvas

Up to 75% off Small, Medium, and Large Photo-Print Reproductions on Gallery-Wrapped Canvas from Picture It On Canvas

In the past, photo prints were done with a gigantic Polaroid, but they never developed properly because nobody was big enough to shake the massive canvases. Harness the power of the digital age with today's Groupon for a photo-print reproduction on gallery-wrapped canvas from Picture It On Canvas, including shipping, handling, and tax. Choose from the following options:

  • For $39, you get a 16"x20"x1.5" photo-print reproduction on gallery-wrapped canvas (a $124.95 value).
  • For $45, you get an 18"x24"x1.5" photo-print reproduction on gallery-wrapped canvas (a $159.95 value).
  • For $49, you get a 24"x30"x1.5" photo-print reproduction on gallery-wrapped canvas (a $192.95 value).

With a quick, electron-enabled visit to Picture It On Canvas's product descriptions and a photon-carried look at its how-to template, customers can dive into the intersecting worlds of art, interior décor, and science. Snappers select a prize digital or analog photo from their archives and then use the online order form to begin the photomorphosis.

Picture It On Canvas's canvases are made of archival-quality material, which is thicker, more durable, and less likely to get stuffed into a roommate's back pocket and creased than the traditional photo-paper medium. Its thick-bar gallery wrap caresses the 1.5-inch-thick edges of pieces with a snug, canvasy embrace that's suitable for hanging without a frame. Customers can consult the FAQs with questions about canvases or to help determine whether the clouds above their homes are the cumulus variety.

$2,799 for a Full Invisalign Orthodontic Treatment at Tadros Dental in Pleasanton (Up to $6,700 Value)

Like glaciers and tectonic plates, teeth are slowly yet surely on the move as they attempt to turn their host’s mouth into frozen tundra and then rip it apart like a bite-size Pangaea. Defeat devious teeth with today’s Groupon: for $2,799, you get a full Invisalign orthodontic treatment at Tadros Dental in Pleasanton (up to a $6,700 value).

Tadros Dental's Invisalign treatments straighten crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Periodic check-ups ensure that pearly whites continue to push toward the straight and narrow, and any appliances that need to be revised are included in the treatment cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.

Dr. Ray Tadros's clean, bright office glimmers with wood paneling and pristine white countertops. TVs await in the corner of every treatment room, providing a tension-reducing distraction and scaring cavities away from faces with syndicated reruns of Law & Molars.

$149 for a Microlaser Peel from Elizabeth Slass Lee, M.D. in Berkeley ($300 Value)

The amazing benefits of lasers were discovered in 1923, but scientists waited to share them with the public until they bored of making the cat chase the dot around the room. Experience the altruism of benevolent light emissions with today's Groupon: for $149, you get a microlaser peel from Elizabeth Slass Lee, M.D. in Berkeley (a $300 value).

Lee, a highly respected plastic surgeon, exercises her aesthetic expertise with nonsurgical procedures such as the microlaser peel, a resurfacing treatment performed on either the face or the back of the hands. Under the effective eye of the Sciton Erbium laser, pigmentation irregularities ease into oblivion, the appearance of scars and wrinkles wanes, and lazy layers of skin snap to attention with a newfound sense of self. The clinic's soothing atmosphere complements the photonic particles' superpowers, like any sidekick, with levelheaded coos of calm. Groupon clients also receive half off a follow-up laser peel, ensuring optimal epidermal rejuvenation. Customers may call to make an appointment and must schedule a 15-minute complimentary consultation that is separate from the treatment.
