I'm part of a cultural gift swap (like a secret Santa but for sending a cool gift from your region) in Park Ridge. the person I am sending to is from Michigan, so not super far. And the gift is supposed to be around $25 bucks. Can anyone think of anything cool from park ridge or Chicago I can easily mail? I was gonna send a food item from that taste of chicago site but everything is way more expensive than $25. I'm happy to go over but don't want to go too high and make others feel bad. Any cool ideas?

Garrett's popcorn (you could get yourself and mail rather than through taste of Chicago). I think they now have some at Costco?

LouMals would be my first choice but it seems all the food items I've looked into start around $60 once shipped. I may have to just go above the limit.

The Spice House has a box with "Chicago" seasoning! I used it as a Chicago themed gift once and they were thrilled!
