Halloween may be long gone, but there's still something frightful on the horizon: holiday shopping season. Between the crowds and the stress of finding that "perfect" gift, you may wind up feeling like the ultimate Scrooge. On the other hand, be it a too-tight sweater or an obvious re-gift from last year, we've all been on the ill side of present receiving at least once in our lives.
But, that won't be a problem this year! From Stephanie Izard's spices and marinades to perfect totes from Nourishing Notes, we've rounded up 30 made-in-Chicago gifts that are as awesome to give as they would be to receive.
