‘Tis the season! My annual holiday gift guide this year features female-founded, Chicagoland-based, sustainable-minded and inclusive brands. And make sure to read on for EXCLUSIVE discount codes!
This female-founded luxury shoe brand (and celeb favorite) boasts premium leather and Italian craftsmanship. Highland Park-native and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” star, Rachel Brosnahan, agrees! My picks: The classic flat, the Natalie, in Sand Calf or Gunmetal Lame.

This Chicago-themed clothing brand caught my attention this fall at their Riverwalk location, but you can also find them at their Wicker Park location and (starting next year) at a standalone shop at O’Hare International Airport. They offer apparel for men, women and kids. My picks: Chicago ’88 Pay Homage Crew Sweatshirt, (featuring Michael Jordan), We Are One beanie, and We Are One Star Hoodie in Pink Panther or Grown Man Tan.

This female-founded apparel brand is focused on sustainably-made luxe basics (with impressive commitments to positive environmental change) and all around inclusivity. My picks: Lush Rib Base Layer Top + Bottoms, Embroidered Dream Longsleeve Button-Up with monogram and matching pants (in Enchanted)

This Chicago-based brand creates cocktail infusion kits featuring premium, all-natural ingredients. Think: Dehydrated apples, candied ginger and cardamom (snow day anyone?). The ingredients are packaged in a lovely (and reusable) 16 oz. glass jar with a custom filtering pour spout with infusion instructions and recipes. You just add your liquor or beverage of choice! These make a fresh hostess gift (in place of the standard wine) for tastemakers (whether they enjoy alcohol or not) and a perfect gift for friends and family who love a good happy hour. My picks: The Happy Hour Membership, The Hot Toddy Duo and The Holiday Punch Pack.

Female-founded and organic cotton brand, Mightly, boasts bold color separates for kids to wear from daytime to nighttime. They also offer matching pajamas for the entire family. We’ve loved Mightly for years and their clothes are the highest quality, made to last and pass down to younger siblings. My picks: Kids 100% organic cotton pjs (evergreen tree), graphic tee pack (DJ graphic) and kids’ lightweight hoodies (navy tie dye)

Female-founded iota Body is the first of its kind nutritional body care brand that aims to bring greater awareness to comprehensive skin health. Their body washes and serum are made with whole food nutrients, microbiome support for skin health, and non-irritating botanical fragrances. My pics: Supervitamin Body Wash and Superplant Body Serum.
