CHICAGO – Supporting Chicago’s small businesses is more important than ever.
Many small businesses are struggling and need your help to keep them going. That’s why the Block Club reporters reached out to more than 140 small businesses across town to highlight their work – and encourage shoppers to stop by.
Our local gift guide should take care of everyone on your list, whether it’s a bookworm, a runner, a coffee lover, a fancy dresser, or a town kid.

We know this guide is not complete, but we are a small team. To request that your local shop be featured, please fill out the form here. We use your suggestions to create a reader curated gift guide.
If you have a local gift guide for your neighborhood please email us at [email protected] or tweet us here.
We also understand the holidays are going to be especially difficult for thousands of Chicagoans this year, so we’ve rounded up 30 mutual relief operations that are happening now. If you can volunteer or donate, more help is needed. If you have any need, click here for more information.
And if you’re feeling particularly generous, consider supporting our nonprofit newsroom. Here’s a guide on how you can help Block Club – including ways you can help for free!
