Great Gift Ideas for Girlfriend or any Special Ladies in Your Life: NBC Chicago

We know it’s tough, we’re here to help! We’ve found the most creative gifts for girlfriends or any ladies who deserve some special attention this Holiday. We’ve found you some great discounts on them as well.  Watch us on NBC Chicago this past Sunday, December 11th.

1. Custom Cutting Board from Noteworthy – 
I am obsessed with this gift. It’s not just for the cook. A personalized cutting board/serving piece is something you wouldn’t think to get yourself, but such a thoughtful gift and they’ll think of you everyday. So many patterns and colors to match any house or decor. You could personalize with names, nicknames, monograms.  Sturdy tempered glass. Love it.  Choose the pattern, colors, font, totally personalized and affordable. $50

2. Chocolate Flavored Red Wine
Hot trend is chocolate-flavored wine, appealing to those who love wine or chocolate, and together, they’re irresistible. This Chocolate Shop Wine, was a favorite in November’s Wine Spectator Usually $15.  For a “sweet deal”, use special Gift Insider Coupon Code for $10/bottle plus free shipping(state laws apply). Perfect romantic way to say I love you or great item to stock up & never go empty-handed to someone’s house again.

3. Botanolution Skin Care 
Botanolution is a cool company dedicated to educating the public in how to take care of their skin using the healing powers of botanicals. A god-send for those with allergies or sensitive skin or for those who just want to put only “the good stuff” on their faces. Their new Enlightment Skin Care Collection compliments all skin types. From their masks and facial washes to their body polish and lip balms, every item is a treat for the skin. They have a great $25 gift travel set, where you get to try 4 of their products.

4. Handle With Care Local Boutique 
Local Chicago Boutique in Old Town with some fabulous accessories.  We are particularly obsessed with the new contemportary jewelry line from Brazil they started carrying, Marcia Moran. Semi Previous stones with a little extra bling and sparkle for the holidays.
1706 North Wells St

5. Bag Inspiration 
Ladies love bags, wallets, clutches, you name it…we can never have enough. Bag Inspiration makes it easy for you men to find her something without having to deal with the snooty ladies at the mall. Lots of recycled options, we love the recycled inner tube line from Alchemy Goods.

6. Take Her on a Trip 
We are huge fans of destinations and experience gifts for the people really close to you. Our favorite destination recommendation this year is Costa Rica –  it’s romantic, eco-friendly, has a beach and incredibly luxurious places to stay but still has activities and fun things to do.  Our favs: Zip lining, playing with the monkeys and seeing a live Volcano.  So much more memorable than just laying in the sun all day.
