Gift Guide Part 4: Gifts for the Chicago Winter Commuter
It’s winter in Chicago; your baby is cold outside. These items will keep her warm and cozy as she trudges to the El, while being stylish enough for navigating the streets of downtown.
The Icebreaker MerinoLOFT Helix Zip is one of the warmest jackets out there, thoroughly insulated and water-resistant, yet lightweight and easily packable. The Mineral/Cameo color combo in this photo is an on-trend break from the predictable shades of black that tend to dominate winter fashion.
Layered underneath is our Second to None V-neck tee, designed by an independent artist located right here in Chicago. Definitely come in to check out the other amazing tops she has designed for Lively as well.
Warm, waterproof shoes are a commuter’s best friend. Our pick for the season is the Hoka Tor Summit because it boasts the luxurious cushioning and stable ride Hoka is known for in a toasty, weather-fighting package.
Performance gloves, like these hybrid glove/mittens from Craft, are an excellent way to block wind and keep feeling in the fingers, especially for active commuters who bike or run to work.
The Lole Lily Tote, below, is a best-selling item here at Lively, and honestly it’s the perfect gift for just about everyone. Commuters love the padded laptop pocket and dual use as a gym bag and work tote. New moms love it as the world’s most functional, elegant diaper bag. Yogis love it for its zipped yoga mat compartment. Travelers love it for the detachable toiletry bag and backpack/tote convertibility. The list goes on and on!
