Taste of Chicago
Our company used BasketWorks for a raffle item at our Northbrook Facility Grand Opening in May – and what a fantastic choice that was! Lise worked diligently to provide us with a beautiful, custom Gift Basket to fit our theme and our budget needs. She is not only professional and easy to work with, but her baskets are filled with a wonderful array of unique and delicious items, as well as being pleasantly packaged down to the very last detail – she even does custom ribbons! We could not have been more pleased with our raffle item, and will definitely use BasketWorks in the future!

You Were Never in Chicago

You Were Never in Chicago

Understanding Chicago is never easy, even for natives.  You Were Never in Chicago, by Neil Steinberg is a fascinating read, offering a view of the city from an outsider who made the city his home.  A combination of travelogue, memoir and history, this book will make Chicago feel like home.   

We stack the book with melt in your mouth cookies, your choice of coffee or tea, and a Chicago theme bookmark to create a gift perfect for any visitor, long time resident or book lover in general.  To make it extra special, each copy of the book is signed by the author.   Shipping is included on this item.
