For the first time in gift guide history, we’ll showcase some of our favorite brands straight out of our Holiday Gift Guide in a Gifting Suite Pop-up at the Hall at the Robey Chicago in Bucktown.
You’ll have a higher touch experience with the brands we love and – bonus – you can do some shopping on site. This pop-up is fully open to the public November 17 from 10 am until 4 pm. so that means your can pop-in for a second at your leisure or stay for a while in the Sleigh Stress Lounge.
And helping you toast to a weekend well lived will be Michelob ULTRA – and if you’re on the nice list, your first drink is on us. Spoiler: you’re all on the nice list.
Plan to be there? You don’t need tickets, but we want to be sure we’re ready with the right amount of snacks.
What’s shop-able at the pop-up?
Before Outdoor Voices opens its Chicago storefront, you’ll be able to shop the brand, so look up your favorite fleece or kit and get excited to try-on. Holly and Tanager will be there with the bag we’ll be featuring in our upcoming gift guides (yes, plural) and more.
For your supplement (and general food/beverage needs) Bulletproof, Four Sigmatic, higherDOSE, KitchFis and PRE beef will be on site with samples and shop-able gifts. Picture a delivery of a box of grass-fed steaks to your most paleo loved one.
For the craftiest gifts, plan on meet author of the book Twinkle Twinkle Social Media Star Kate Kennedy and its illustrator Torie Conn Illustrations. They’ll have gifts you’ll want to give, including the book. And in case you’re concerned about wrapping, Paper Source will be in the house with DIY wrapping and gift tags as well as more from the store.
This list keeps growing, so expect more as the pop-up gets closer.
