Hello everyone! I moved to Chicago recently, and I want to get Christmas gifts related to that for my family. Does anyone know of a good place to get Chicago t-shirts that are nice, but not ridiculously expensive? Also, does anyone have any idea of where I could get a Chicago-themed Christmas ornament? Thanks!

Best place for ornaments might be the Christkindel Market in Daley Plaza downtown. It's a temporary market during the holiday season with vendors mainly from Germany selling various handicrafts and foods. They usually have a few Chicago ornaments for sale there.

As for tshirts, I know there is a place up in Wrigleyville that always has quite the collection of tshirts that aren't ridiculously expensive. I have bought a few shirts from them, including a Chicago flag shirt.

I got some great ones at the Architecture Institute store downtown....(ornaments) I didn't see any "Chicago" ornaments at the Christkindle Market when I was there last year. However, you can get the yearly mug from the hot spiced wine
