For other great recommendations about what to buy, where to eat, and where to hang out in Chicago, check out the eminent Delve Chicago blog. And for anyone looking buy the ladies from Delve a holiday gift, well, read below.
If you think that one gift can appease all girls, you are either wrong, or buying lots of Chanel bags. No matter the type of chick, Delve Chicago has hand-picked some gifts that will make the woman in your life happy this holiday season.
For the Overworked
If your girl is constantly spending late nights at the office, it’s probably safe to say she’s stressed. Indulge her in a massage at one of the uber-luxurious hotel spas that Chicago has to offer. We recommend either the Elysian’s Spa (Gold Coast: 111 E. Walton) or Valeo Spa (The Loop: 151 W. Adams) at the recently opened JW Marriot. She’ll make a day of it, relaxing in the lounge, steaming in the sauna, leaving you free on a weekend for all the football-watching your heart desires. A gift where everybody wins!
For the Workout Fiend
If she spends mornings, nights and/or weekends at the gym, she is likely dying for some new workout gear. Here’s the thing, girls hate buying new workout clothes, we’d rather spend money on a dress we’ll wear once than something we would wear every day (makes total sense, right?). To keep her stylish and warm while walking to and from the yoga studio, we’d suggest this Lululemon jacket ($118). Warning: this gift is only for workout enthusiasts, not for your girlfriend that you’re trying to get to work out.
Three Chicago locations: Gold Coast: 900 N. Michigan Ave. * Bucktown: 1627 N. Damen Ave. * Lincoln Park: 2104 N Halsted St.
For the Entertainer
Happen to be dating the hostess with the mostest? Help make her holiday entertaining more impressive than ever with a few vintage wine bottle stoppers from Apartment 48. You know, just in case there happens to be anything left in that wine bottle. Or for something you both can enjoy, pick up a ($68) candle in spiced plum to set an instant mood of coziness. And good news: proper pronunciation of the candle not necessary for purchase.
For the Fashionista
If she would rather have a new pair of shoes than money to buy food, your girl is likely a slave to fashion, and we don’t blame her. Keep her warm and ultra-glam this holiday season with a fur infinity scarf ($158). We’ve tried on this one from Intermix, and to say it was love at first sight was an understatement.
Note: Gray scarf not available online. Try Intermix stores in the Gold Coast: 40 E. Delaware Pl. * Lincoln Park: 841 W Armitage Ave. * Bucktown: 1633 N Damen Ave.
