Season's Eatings

As the holidays approach, CS has the scoop on delectable gifts to thrill the libation lovers in your life.
Cooper's Hawk Winery gets in the spirit with a boozy Advent calendar gift set.

Cooper’s Hawk Advent Calendar
Looking to get in the holiday spirit a little early? Cooper’s Hawk Winery, based in suburban Orland Park, has just the advent calendar you need. Packaged in a gold-accented case, the 12 Nights of Christmas gift set contains a dozen of the winery’s favorites, from almond-infused bubbles to a premium “lux” cabernet sauvignon brimming with notes of plum and spice. Each demi bottle holds just over two glasses of wine, making sampling all the more fun. For a gift that will last long after the last bottle has been opened, Cooper’s Hawk also offers a visually stunning decanter ($190) buoyed by a water-filled glass bubble that ensures every drop is beautifully aerated. $99, various locations

Vosges Haut-Chocolat Collections
There’s more to celebrate than just the holidays at the city’s top luxury chocolatier. As Vosges turns 20, founder Katrina Markoff has unearthed some of her favorite truffles from the past two decades and assembled them in The Vault Collection. Along with the classics comes a truffle made with the exclusive ruby cacao—and Vosges is among the first chocolatiers to get it. Other holiday items include an advent calendar ($140) filled with decadent caramels and exotic chocolate bars, and the Enchanted Holiday Truffle Collection ($58) featuring 17 chocolates from faraway places. $150, 951 W. Armitage Ave., 773.296.9866

Three Dots and a Dash Tiki Mugs
When your glassware is as whimsical as the drink it holds, your bar experience is twice as fun. Three Dots and a Dash has its cocktail presentation down with unique mugs with unmistakable flair—and fans can now get their own versions of the mugs to stir up fun at home. Find the small-production mugs at Three Dots and online, and act fast if you’ve got a favorite—the limited-edition mugs are only around for so long before new styles are introduced. $75 each, 435 N. Clark St., 312.610.4220
