Chicago Gift Baskets – A Perfect Way to Welcome Visitors to Chicago

When out of town guests come to visit me in Chicago, I always like to give them a gift basket of thoughtful gifts and treats. It’s such a nice way to welcome them to the city and make them feel special! Usually, I rush around the city trying to assemble a basket full of items that would appeal to my guests and relate to Chicago in some way. But those days are now over! I recently discovered the locally owned and operated “Send Them Chicago” gift basket company and had a chance to check out their “Windy City Welcome” offering. It is so cute, and my out of town guests were thrilled with the thoughtful Chicago-themed gift!

Isn’t this the cutest little burlap gift bag? And it’s full of Chicago-themed treats that my family loves! The “Windy City Welcome” gift basket from Send Them Chicago comes with a Chicago Flag Mug, a sampler tin of Garrett’s Popcorn, a pop-out fold-up map of Chicago, classic Frango Mint Chocolates and sample of some melt-in-your-mouth Dulce de Leche Cookies (or something similar!).

Send Them Chicago works with independent artisans and Chicago-based businesses to put together the gift baskets and will work with you to customize the perfect selection of curated items. All you have to do is chat with the amazing owner, Melodie, about what you want, and she will pull it together for you. Just think of the possibilities! Want a customized gift bag for your wedding party? What about a corporate welcome gift? Or something for your bachelorette or bachelor parties?! Send Them Chicago can bring your vision to life!

Chicago-Themed Gift Baskets Perfect for Chicago Visitors

Earlier this summer, my family came to visit me in Chicago. Even though they’d been here hundreds of times, I wanted to do something special for them!

I knew I wanted to give them gift baskets that included all of their favorite treats, so I contacted Send Them Chicago to see what they offered. The Windy City Welcome gift bag was exactly what I was looking for, and they were so kind to send me some for my out of town guests.

My Mom loves Frango mints, and Garrett’s Popcorn is a family favorite! Another star of this gift basket was the Chicago Flag mug. The mug is great quality and big enough for the copious amounts of coffee that I drink! Also, how cute is this pop-out map?!
