Ah! It’s just so delightful when one little boutique makes gift-giving totally effortless. Such is the case at Jonathan Adler where one visit intended to be “quick” could stretch into an easy hour and plenty of bags of goodness (of gifts … and a few for you too of course).

The bright colors pr_int_05practically sing “Come In!” from the windows of the Jonathan Adler boutique on N. Wabash Street in Chicago’s River North neighborhood. Inside it only gets brighter, happier and more inspiring to shop!

Hot items you’ll find – and which you’ll have a hard time parting with unless you buy one for yourself-  include: the ever-famous Muse Votive candles available in two sizes (go on, get the bigger one for yourself), the funky Queen Anne mirror, and of course, the too-cool throw pillows featuring sayings, designs of all sorts, and engraved letters.

If you need something smaller, you’ll find it here, too. The boutique makes shopping easy with incremented suggestions starting at $50 and under as well as suggestions for the host/hostess, Hanukkah and young ones.

Thinking you’re in a pinch for shopping is no longer an excuse – thank you Jonathan.
