Like it or not, the holiday season is pretty much here. Of course, you know you’re going to have to buy gifts for friends and family, but you’ll also probably be faced with cards, White Elephant exchanges and more…and that’s where Foursided Chicago comes in.
Foursided is a custom framing shop that also features art, greeting cards and home decor, with three locations in Chicago: two in Lakeview and one in Andersonville. And, every Christmas, it transforms into a holiday wonderland, featuring cards, ornaments, and tons of unique local gifts. Think all the coolest stuff available on Etsy, but in a real-life store.
I am lucky enough to live within walking distance of both Lakeview locations, so they’ve become my go-to for greeting cards and gifts. I just picked up holiday cards from there to send this year, and am fully planning on going back for friend and co-worker gifts, too. You can see a selection of their products and art prints online, but definitely check out the store if you can — the location on Clark Street is full of fun discoveries in every nook and cranny, and the holiday window displays are especially worth a visit this time of year!
Here are ten of my favorite products and gift picks available at Foursided Chicago’s online shop…but seriously, go check them out in person if you can. The employees are super nice, the space is super cute, and it’s kind of like Target in that you will spend more than you intended to, but you’ll be supporting a local business so it’s okay!
