Last week I had the chance to check out a fun new store in Lincoln Park called Pop Box. It is part showroom and part discovery, where shoppers can come to find new and innovative brands normally found only online.

Every few months Pop Box will change themes to showcase unique brands in a vibrant boutique space. Their current theme is subscription boxes and this is the first and only place in the US that feature subscription boxes in a store setting where shoppers can see the contents of a box before they buy.

They have a lot of Chicago based companies {which I love!} and some of the brands being featured include: Cooper & Kids, Home Chef, The RunnerBox, PupJoy, Mouth, Vinebox, Moustache Coffee Club, Mystery Tackle Box, Burgundy Fox, Wodbom, Oars + Alps, Bear & Bud Book Club, GrandBox, and Deskpass.

With the holiday season coming up, these make great gifts and there is such a wide range of themed boxes that there is something for everyone. While visiting the store a few stood out to me including VineboxHome Chef, and Burgundy Fox.

Vinebox is the perfect present for all those wine lovers out there and the packaging is adorable. For the holidays they have a special Twelve Nights of Wine box that includes 12 curated glasses from the best wine regions in the world. You can countdown to the holidays with styles and try a different wine each night.

I also thought Home Chef sounded fun! This box would make a great gift for food lovers or family members that want to learn how to cook. it is more affordable than shopping for ingredients at the supermarket and they make the cooking experience more approachable and inexpensive.

Another favorite of mine included Burgundy Fox. These would make great gifts for all the women in your life {think friend, sister, cousin, mother} as well as the perfect present for bachelorette and birthday parties. They have such amazing pajamas, robes, loungewear, and underwear with cute accessories too.

I got to try out Burgundy Fox firsthand and received a box that included the softest slick pajamas, an Essie nail polish {my favorite brand!} and a Voluspa candle that smells amazing.

You can purchase the boxes in store on the POS system that is integrated into the brand’s website. Also, Pop Box offers gift wrapping for boxes that you want to give as gifts this holiday season.

For all you Chicagoans out there make sure to visit them in Lincoln Park at 1024 W. Armitage. It is the perfect one-stop-shop for holiday gifts where shoppers can check off everyone on their list. Also Pop Box offers promotions and coupons to encourage shoppers to buy these boxes in store. What more can you ask for?

*A huge thank you to Pop Box for partnering on this post. As always all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting brands that make GCG possible!

    Sounds and looks like a cute shop! I got to visit with friends in Lincoln Park pretty often, so I will keep them in mind. Perhaps the next time I stop over to Big Star for tacos… :o)

    With Love & Style,
