Shopping time is running out

With only 13 more shopping days before Christmas, the pressure is on to find the perfect gifts. Luckily there are so many places in Chicago to find them.

For the foodie on your list, Garrett Popcorn is always a top choice. It’s made the Oprah’s Favorite Things list in the past, and the Chicago Mix is a crowd pleaser for almost anyone on your list.

For someone who loves to cook, The Olive Tap, located in the suburbs, has flavored oils, vinegars, marinades and more to choose from. You can even try the flavors out before purchasing to make sure it will be a hit.

If you’re just not sure what to buy, try a gift guide on different Web sites to get some ideas. Zazzle offers a gift generator with ideas after you put the gender, age range and an interest for the recipient. If that doesn’t help, there are plenty of gifts on the Web site to choose from that can also be customizable.

If you just can’t find a gift in Chicago, online shopping is the way to go. Many Web sites, such as Jeremy Argyle NYC, offer free shipping. Just be sure to order soon so it arrives in time for Christmas.
