Eating, drinking and making merry: It’s that time of year in this fabulous culinary city, and we know what we’re slipping into the stockings of our food-loving friends.


Our favorite Chicago cocktail temptress, the red-lipsticked Revae Schneider of Femme du Coupe, has been in tipsy elf mode, getting her new product line ready for the holidays. Le Sirop, her collection of beautifully packaged cocktail syrups ($15 each), is now sold online and available for local delivery or pickup.

1303 Wilson Ave.


If we could make bread as delicious as what we’ve tasted at Baker & Nosh, we’d just give everyone a loaf and call it a year. Instead, we’re signing our friends up for the bakery's Bread Basics class ($75) to help them become the masters of their own dough-mains.

Play secret Santa by covertly hanging gifts from the branches of your hosts’ Christmas trees. These festive tin ornaments ($12.50 for three) from DavidsTea--a Canadian company that just landed in Chicago--are filled with fragrant holiday teas and come with gift tags.


Suitor stationer and video mag Glossed and Found have created an adorable hostess gift at a perfect price. The Barkeep! box ($22) includes cocktail recipes from G&F interviewees (Kelly Wearstler and Bobbi Brown among them) and a set of vintage swizzle sticks. Proceeds go to Prescription Well-Being.
