What do you get the person on your list who has everything? Booze. Specifically, a monthly membership to the Lost Lake Cocktail Club, which includes a rotating lineup of tropical drinks mixed by the pros every month. The experts at the famed Logan Square bar even toss in tasting notes and educational materials and invites to cocktail classes. Plus, as long as you’re a member, you get 10 percent off every purchase at Lost Lake. Might as well get one for yourself while you’re at it.
We all deserve a present for making it through 2020, but first, we must buy them for the people we love. (Hey! We don't make the rules.) This year, we're exclusively shopping local and throwing our dollars behind the small businesses that are the lifeblood of Chicago. No matter who you're shopping for this year—your favorite USPS worker, your virtual yoga instructor or the friends you haven't seen in months—you don't need to look far for personalized gifts. We did the legwork for you, shopping Chicago makers and small businesses for art, jewelry, books, booze, plants and dog toys. So pour yourself a glass of eggnog, have your credit card handy and settle in for an online shopping spree that fuels the local community.
