Chicago has great gift shops, but sometimes you just want to buy something nice for yourself. While it’s fine to sport your Cubs hat, we think these Chicago souvenirs are pretty cool too, from exclusive art prints made by area artists to local gin to even a pint glass subtly stamped with your new favorite beer bar. Whether you're a local or just visiting, find mementos like these and more in stores and online. What better way to explore the city than to fall in love with new shops
