Why locals love it
Hazel is a must see Chicago shop. Locals head here to discover small house warming gifts and handmade cads for friends and family members (although I usually leave with something for myself whenever visiting). They also sell a wide range of jewelry, purses, and house wares.
Why you should visit it
The atmosphere in this shop is quirky without feeling too hip or twee. The owners are absolute sweethearts and will happily give recommendations. Items include candles, small plates, lotions and soaps, handbags, and many gift items for men. I also recommend heading to their clothing branch just two blocks west of the main shop.
Look for cards by Laura Berger - she is a secret treasure of the Chicago art scene!
