If you’re still shopping for Christmas gifts, don’t panic — there’s still time!

Check out some of these Chicago-based online retailers for unique gift ideas:


For the wine lover on your gift list, Winestyr is the perfect place to shop online. Described as a craft wine marketplace, Winestyr features wine from small wineries that aren’t available in your average grocery store. If you’re not sure which wine to buy, Winestyr’s “Gift Finder” will suggest bottles based on wine type, recipient, occasion and price. Or, if you’re still not sure on what wine to give, you can always email someone a Winestyr gift card (and choose the delivery date.) Winestyr is also working on a Wine Quiz, which is expected to come out next week.

Order by Saturday at midnight to ensure delivery by Christmas, and use the code WGN when you check out to get $10 off.

CJK Foods

Give the gift of a healthy meal (or treat!) from CJK Foods this holiday season. CJK Foods is healthy meal delivery service, and almost all of their offerings are gluten and dairy free. For the holidays,  they’re selling Chocolate Chip Cookies-in-a-Jar, which includes everything but the eggs to make 3 dozen Chocolate Chip and Walnut Paleo Cookies. They also have a Superfoodie Holiday Punch — it’s enough to serve 4-5 glasses and makes a great hostess gift.

Food items range in price from $6 to $32. Gift cards are available on the site, too!

Accessory Mercado

If you’re looking for a ring or necklace for someone this Christmas, order online from Accessory Mercado. They sell unique pieces, jewelry that can be personalized, and more affordable versions of designer jewelry. Every Wednesday, they hold a fire sale on their Facebook page, so watch out for that.

Accessory Mercado is one of several Chicago online retailers participating in, which is a website dedicated to shopping locally. On Friday, you can use the promo code “BUYCHI” when shopping at any of the local online retailers featured on the site.
