Chicago, Favors & Gifts

Courtesy of Chicago Honey Co-op

Engagement party, bridal shower, bachelorette party... There are quite a few events thrown in your honor before your wedding day rolls around—which means you'll have quite a few hostess gifts to buy. Before you head to the mall for the umteenth time, check out the offerings from the Chicago Honey Co-op. Using honey and wax from more than 100 hives located in the city's West side, these beekeepers create an array of nifty products available through their online store. I love their Honey and Body Care gift tin, which includes a beeswax votive candle, moisturizing body bar, lip balm and honey sugar scrub, all for $45. —Allison Bean, Editorial Assistant, Brides Local Magazines
