BasketWorks is a woman-owned, Chicagoland-based company that creates customized gifts and gift baskets available for corporate groups. Its primary focus is on themed baskets and packages centered on all things Chicago. Packages are available for each of the city’s sports teams, and the Taste of Chicago Beer basket features a pint glass, assorted drinks from Chicago craft breweries, and various snacks.

“Our most popular packages are the Taste of Chicago [a savory collection of treats and snacks], Sweet Home Chicago [sweeter treats], and the Windy City Tote,” says Lise Schleicher, owner of BasketWorks. “Those are baskets that specifically feature products made in the Greater Chicago area and are often used for folks coming in from out of town for social or business events.”

BasketWorks incorporates company colors or logos into the gifts upon request, and there is no limit to the number that can be purchased at once (although larger orders will take more time to prepare). The company also ensures that gifts are airport security-friendly for out-of-state travelers.
