Your Week in Awesome XX / by Julie Schumacher

Go, Do & See

It's super easy to participate in Meals on Wheels Chicago's fantastic holiday card drive, but you only have till 12/15. 

Give and give back with Altruette, whose charm bracelets are featured in Cool Mom Picks' gift guide.

Srsly. Have you shopped our gift guide for this year? Get on it.

While we love OUR gift guide, we love that Chicago Magazine's features Heritage Littles, the Forneau bread oven as well as Modern Sprout and Argaman and Defiance.

It's the last day to get free shipping on Hand & Cloth's goodies.

Remember, head to Folk the Halls, covering your fave 90s holiday jams, at Workshop on Wed 12/9.

We know two Forthers who will be at Yoga+ Makers on 12/14 with vendors including Argaman & Defiance.

Get your Holidose on 12/13 with Smilebooth, Nourishing Notes, Hand & Cloth, Modern Sprout, and Production Mode.
