Fly Away Home
A cozy robe is a classic holiday gift, especially from mother to daughter or sister to sister. To us, nothing could be more appealing than this colorful, butterfly-strewn “Josephine” number by Missoni ($320) at Bucktown treasure trove Stitch. It’s snuggly, playful and gorgeous--just the kind of thing we want to come home to.
335 N. Michigan Ave.
These diminutive baubles from Chicago designer Dana Rebecca are the kind of jewelry we want to wear every day. The “Sylvie Rose” earrings ($355, available at Marshall Pierce & Co.) in rose gold with a row of tiny diamonds can go from the treadmill to the office with ease--yet their edgy charm isn’t lost on an array of celeb fans (Emma Stone and Anne Hathaway among them).
Nikon's D3200 HD-SLR is available in Black and Red for a standard retail price (SRP) of $699.99. In other words, it's yours to make your own.
Room 1520, 1520 W. Fulton St.
Cause and Effect
The hotly awaited market Fête (from three Dose alums) launches tonight from 6 to 10 p.m. and promises a lineup of gift-worthy food and design vendors. One booth on our list is Heshimya Kenya, where the beautiful Maisha scarves ($38) and clutches ($34) are made by young women who are part of a business collective in Africa that empowers them to rebuild their lives with dignity.

Naughty by Nature
A little coal in someone’s stocking doesn't have to mean she’s been bad. The 80-minute Japanese white-charcoal massage ($250) at the Four Seasons spa is nothing but nice, from the detoxifying white-charcoal drink to the luxurious back-exfoliation treatment, which uses a blend of charcoal mixed with sea salt and rice-bran oil (the spa uses products by Sort of Coal). Then there’s the deep-tissue rubdown…ahh.
