Shopping Local For The Holidays

Christmas is officially one week away, and if you haven’t started your shopping yet…I’d probably get on that if I were you. Considering it’s probably too late to make your gift purchases online (or it will cost you twice as much in shipping) I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to showcase some holiday shopping ideas at my favorite Chicago boutiques. Because I’ve already shared my own holiday wish list, I wanted to ask the people who work at these shops the one gift they’d like to give and one they’d like to receive from the store they work at. This was one of the most fun features I’ve ever done so I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

All of these people have exceptional taste. So trust their judgement, shop local, and maybe pick up something for yourself along the way.

Thank you to everyone from these awesome stores for participating. If anyone is reading this who’s friends with these people, take a hint…they are literally telling you what they want for Christmas. It couldn’t be more obvious. I also would be more than happy to receive any of these items (including the Ann Demeulemeester mens coat). Just saying.

  1. Love how you got someone from each store to say what to gift + receive! May I make another store suggestions? Art Effect on Armitage! It’s my fav.
    Isn’t That Charming.
