Holiday Gift Guide

Holiday Markets

Support small businesses this holiday season! You can find us alongside other great makers at two markets in December.  On Saturday, December 4th (1:00 - 6:00 pm) we will be at the Solemn Oath Brewery Taproom in Naperville, IL.  Our final event of the year will be at the Renegade Craft Holiday market in Revel Fulton Market.  This is a two-day event on Saturday, December 18th and Sunday, December 19th from 11:00 am - 5:00 pm each day.  We will bring everything we have remaining in inventory for all your last minute shopping needs.  Visit our 'Where to Find Us' page for market links, addresses, and more information.  

 

Chicago Pickup Locations

We are so excited to offer our Chicago community multiple options for FREE order pickup.  Its so easy... just order from our online store and chose 'Pickup at a Location' during checkout.  In addition to our kitchen, you will be able to choose between the below three options.  Note the pickup date / time window for each location at checkout.   

For our first pickup we partnered with the recently opened Konbini & Kanpai (website link) in the Lakeview neighborhood.  Every Wednesday evening they have a wine tasting event and we will join them on December 15th from 6:00 - 8:00 pm, when you can pickup your order.  While you are in the shop we recommend grabbing a bottle of sake for you next holiday gathering.  Don't know much about sake?  No problem, just ask Jun-Jun and he will steer you in the right direction. 

Your next option is in Ravenswood at Side Practice Coffee (website link) on Saturday, December 18th from 9:00 am - 12:00 noon.  This great neighborhood cafe and strong supporter of the Chicago maker scene is a treasure.  Drop in, pickup, and checkout items from an assortment of Chicago entrepreneurs.  

You may also order in advance of the Renegade Craft Holiday (website link) market from our online store and pickup during the market on December 18th & 19th.   

 

Holiday Shipping Information

We will continue using UPS shipping services throughout the holiday season.  You can always check the 'Shipping Info' link on our website for the latest updates, but UPS has provided their "Year-End Holiday Schedule" (link here) as a good reference for planning your shipments.  Please order and plan accordingly. 

Their recommended last days to ship for December 24th delivery are as follows: Next Day Air services (December 23); 2nd Day Air services (December 22) and UPS Ground varies. We recommend Ground deliveries outside your region (for us that would be the upper Midwest / Chicago area) go out the week of December 13th, while more local deliveries should have success if sent Monday, December 20th. 

See what you want in the online store but want it shipped later?  Just let us know in the notes of the order and we will ship it out when you request.  

Chicago Area... complimentary UPS Ground shipping on all order greater than $100.00.  Does not include Bonbon Subscription.   

  

Special Holiday Items

Holiday bonbon boxes

Holiday Box Dressing.  New this holiday season.  The following bonbon boxes will be dressed up in holiday style (see photo): Box of 12 Original and New Collections + Box of 24 Complete Collection.  Note, this addition will be automatic on all orders placed / shipped in December.  

Bonbon Box Subscriptions.  Last year a few of our customers reached out to create a subscription of boxes as gifts.  Its such a great gift idea that we have added this to our options this year.  Details can be found on the product page, but it is basically a four-month bonbon box subscription (December - March).  

Digital Gift Cards.  Some of you asked for a gift card option and we are happy to bring it to you this holiday season.  See the product page for details on denominations and delivery.  

Others Items.  Chef Elle is working hard to update inventory on all products while also creating a few unique holiday items (e.g. peppermint bark and chocolate bars). Keep an eye out on our Instagram account for these announcements.
