Last-minute shoppers are under a serious time crunch now, but here are a couple gifts in Chicago that don’t need to be delivered by Christmas.

  • For the aspiring chefs out there, a cooking class in Chicago and dinner on Restaurant Row is a great gift idea.
  • For the chocolate lovers (and who isn’t one?) the Chicago Chocolate Tour is a deliciously brilliant gift idea.
  • Chicago is famous for its deep dish pizza, so a Chicago Pizza Tour may be the best Chicago-themed gift idea.
  • Do you know an adventure-lover? Give them an experience for a gift: skydiving.
  • Another great gift idea is a lunch or dinner cruise on Lake Michigan. There are many different cruises and menus to choose from.
  • For an amazing view of Chicago, give the gift of a hot air balloon ride.

With all the different gift ideas for experiences in Chicago, it can be better than a gift under the tree.
