By Amanda on December 13, 2013


The holidays are here, along with our annual Holiday Tour of Drinks, Daleys and Dead Guys. The Chicago gift ideas below make for a much cooler gift than a shot glass or yet another poster of the Chicago skyline. We at Chicago Detours would like to share a few Chicago gift ideas for lovers of Chicago architecture and history. Try out some of these awesome holiday gift ideas:
