Although there are some fantastic shops around town in Chicago, you don’t have to spend a ridiculous amount of money on your holiday gifts. You can make some of them yourself instead. Sometimes a gift that you make is more special than a store bought gift. If you live around town in Chicago at our beautiful Mondial apartments, then make some of these gifts for your friends and family.

  • Recipe Book – Are you known amongst friends and family for being quite the chef? Why not share some of your favorite recipes in a recipe book?
  • Deserts – Everyone loves deserts! Make a batch of cookies or brownies, or make your own truffles! You can complete the gift by getting creative with the packaging.
  • Art – If you are creatively inclined and pretty good with a pen or pencil, then draw special memories that you share with the person you are giving the gift to.

These are some simple gifts that you can make yourself. They may be cheaper than gifts at stores around town in Chicago, but a lot more effort goes into making them. Be sure to share your ideas for home-made gifts with us!
