mothersday
Why is it that any holiday other than those that fall in the month of January seem to sneak up on you like a thief in the night? While you're no doubt stoked it's the weekend, Mother's Day is only a couple of days away, which begs the question: What did you get your mama? We gave you a lot of great ideas in our homegrown gift guide, but we've got another rad resource that's as close as the computer you're reading this on.

Enter Giftbar, a digital marketplace that curates the best gift cards from some of Chicago's top merchants and boutiques, such as Sofia, Lori's Shoes, Arch Apothecary, Art Effect, Comfort Me Boutique, and many more. You can choose a general gift card good for all of the merchants on the site, or shop by neighborhood, personality, or occasion. First time making a purchase? Use code first 20 and save 20% on your total order.
Aside from saving a buck, there's never been a better time to visit Giftbar. Between now and May 31, you can enter to win a trip for two to New York City, plus a $1,000 Giftbar shopping spree. And hey — if you win, you better take mom.
