Whether you are shopping for Valentine’s Day gifts for him, for her, or for yourself, you can’t go wrong with something from the 900 Shops. If you know me, you know I am so full of love and I can’t resist spoiling the special people in my life with unique, thoughtful gifts. Lucky for me, 900 shops has everything I am looking for in one spot! So today I am sharing my list of super unique Valentine’s day gift ideas for him and her. Let’s dive in…


Diana, the curator and designer of custom clothing, has the most luxurious taste and it shows! One of the bestselling Valentine’s day gifts in her shop is the leather notebooks with cities carved on the front. You can choose from Rome, Paris, Manhattan, or Chicago. For someone who is very into whiskey culture, you can get this whiskey coffeetable book with a leather cover–and to complete the set, whiskey stones and whiskey-flavored toothpicks.

Provenance also sells gorgeous scarves from my girl Deseda, another local Chicago female-owned business! The prints on the scarves are all painted on from local artists so they are especially unique. Style as a scarf, a top, a wrap, a kimono… the options are endless.

Personally, I recommend an exclusive, luxury, and unique perfume. They are mostly unisex so you can shop for the special man or woman on your list! And they all come with very special free gift with purchase. I’ve been wearing the same perfume for 20 years, but I couldn’t resist something new and got myself the Andromeda scent from Tiziana Terenzi. If you aren’t sure what scent to get, I created a quiz for you to find your perfect perfume match, whether you are buying for yourself or a gift! Contact Diana directly at 312-619-2425 to place your orders and tell her Tali sent you!



Every time my kids come to the 900 shops, they can’t resist Teuscher chocolate shop! Yes, it’s just as delicious as it looks. They have so many options for Valentine’s day gifts, including my personal gift wish, Champagne truffles! All the chocolates come in keepsake boxes that are handmade in Switzerland. Call 888-387-2437 to place your very sweet order.


I bet you are wondering where my epic red kimono is from that I’m wearing in these shots… it is hand-sewn by Bella Niecele, a 26 year old talented Black designer located in the 900 shops! Her style is so edgy, cool, and very sophisticated and classic. She can custom-make endless clothing options for you, in any color, pattern, and fabric. Because nothing says “I love you” like a new outfit that is unique, like you! Contact Bella at 847) 261-4130 for a consultation or stop in to visit her on the 3rd floor at 900 shops.


You can’t shop for Valentine’s day gifts at 900 shops without stopping at Kate Spade! The whole store is an explosion of pink and fun, and the options are affordable. I’m treating myself with heart-print PJs. I also love this love notes bag that is for all ages, I am considering getting for my daughter Katya! And last but not least, festive Valentine’s day masks. Masks are here to stay, so we might as well make them fashionable with these hearts and polka dots print masks from Kate Spade. Call the store directly at 312-951-7365 and tell them Tali sent you!


Power Plate in the 900 shops is hands down your go-to spot for out-of-the-box gift ideas. One of the best gifts I ever got for Jason was an electric massage gun. If your spouse is like mine and is constantly with sore muscles and asking for massages, this is a lifesaver. My favorite part is it comes in festive red color, but it’s also available in black. Personally I am asking for this dual sphere because it really helps with neck, back, and foot pain from wearing heels all day! Call the store directly at 312-619-6190 to get these epic gifts.


I am always huge on offering the gift of experiences, because nothing is better than new happy memories. My personal recommendation and new addiction is the Mario Tricocci salon! Treat yourself with a fabulous facial or a refreshed hairstyle. I’ve been getting my hair done at least once a week there, Ruby and Dolly  are my girls and she will take care of you. Call 847-202-1900 to set your appointment today! Another gift idea for those fitness lovers is a new gym membership from luxury gym Equinox, that has hundreds of classes available and state-of-the-art equipment.
