HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY 2015:
‘Tis the season for gift-giving, and I have the perfect guide for those of you in Chicago! I know, it is that time of year again when you wish you could jump into someone else mind to truly read what they want. After all, no one wants to return or exchange a gift! I made this gift guide with fun, unique ideas you can give to that special someone in your life, or to give that co-worker or client. From holiday performances, spas, and art here are my top five gifts for the 2015 holiday season:
1. Harris Theater of Music and Dance Holiday Performance Tickets:
I absolutely love the Harris Theater, especially around the holidays! For me, I love unique gifts such as attending a performance to create lasting memories. Plus, who doesn’t love a great excuse to get dressed up, see incredible performances, and stroll around downtown Chicago seeing all the beautiful holiday lights. They have two incredible performances will be taking place next week, which everyone is already raving about. Taking place on December 14th is the World Premiere performance of Higher: Renee Fleming and Patricia Barber, which is a musical collaboration between Lyric Opera’s Creative Consultant, Grammy-winning soprano, Renée Fleming, and Chicago jazz vocalist, pianist, and composer, Patricia Barber. The second, Chicago’s holiday tradition is back for a third year! The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center performs the complete Bach Brandenburg Concertos. Some call it a holiday staple!
2. Lana Jewelry:
Let’s face it, who doesn’t love a something shiny? Lana Jewelry located in Chicago offers an amazing selection of chic fine gold jewelry I have ever come across. You can find something for the entire family. Looking for something to give your boss or clients? She has you covered! I love everything from the modern hoop earrings to the edgy fine necklaces. Follow Lana’s Gift Guide and you cannot go wrong!
3. Leah Chavie All-Natural Skincare Products:
This is the perfect stocking stuffer for moms, dads, and teens! Leah Chavie, Chicago’s leading skincare expert and fonder of Leah Chavie Skincare Boutique, has launched her own organic skincare line for adults AND children. Each product is infused with botanic actives including mood balancing flower essences, high potency botanic and herbs, regenerative plant stem cells, therapeutic grade essential oils, living clays, and powerful active planet peptides.

4. Chuan Spa at the Langham Hotel in Chicago:
Looking for a romantic holiday gift? This oasis located in the heart of Chicago is the perfect gift to give your hubby or wife to get rejuvenated before all those big 2016 plans. Sit back, relax and be swept away in this tranquil environment. This is the perfect escape from all those holiday gatherings.
5. Hebru Brand Art Books:
Hebru Brand is a local artist taking Chicago by storm. Hebru tells his personal story through these infamous characters he has create, which live through the Chicagoland area. I love the concept of giving art as a gift to family, friends, co-works, and clients. It taps into a unique conversation with the ones you love. Not only does it make for a great conversation started, but it also supports local artists around Chicago! Have someone visiting from out of town for the holidays? What better way to show off the city you love then by show them art with personal stories behind each piece.
