Links Hotels have realized that travelers can get magazines, Twizzlers and dental floss at Walgreens and 7-11, so smart places are stocking their gift shops with unusual, Chicago-centric and hotel-specific items for you to tote back home for yourself or friends and family.

A jewel box store with white cabinetry and tones of Langham pink, the store features signature Langham products including tins of tea and the hotel’s signature Ginger Rose scent, along with unique and distinctive gifts.

Although stock turns over, expect brands such as Robert Graham, Peter Millar and Gitman Gold in terms of men’s clothing. For women, there’s Nic+Zoe, Vince, Eileen Fisher, Kinross cashmere and Maggy London. Pick up unique Ritz-Carlton wine classes and scented candles sporting the Ritz logo.

Hard Rock Hotel Chicago 230 N. Michigan Ave. Chicago, IL 60601 (312) 345-1000 www.hardrockhotelchicago.com

You can rifle through vintage shops to put together a rock star persona or visit to the Rock Shop® located in the lobby of Hard Rock Hotel Chicago. In addition to Hard Rock logo apparel, see exclusive collections from designer brands (like Lyric and King Baby); customized tops; and Hard Rock Couture tees and accessories. King Babby baubles are made of 100% Sterling Silver and are available in items such as a Brass Knuckle Chain, Angel Wing earrings, Heart Wing pendant and others.

The Drake 140 E. Walton Place Chicago, IL 60611 (312) 787-2200 www.thedrakehotel.com

Yes, you can get modern items like Pashmina, watches, rings and bracelets, Guess purses and others made from recycled materials as well as Kai and Savannah Bee body lotion, candles, lip gloss and nail polish. But stop in for anything stamped with the historic hotel’s image such as Drake gourmet chocolates and candles, Drake tee shirts, coffee mugs and ornaments. History fans will want a copy of the book detailing the history of the timeless Drake which has a storied past dating from the 1920s.

Trump International Hotel & Tower 401 N. Wabash Ave. Chicago, IL 60611 (312) 588-8000 www.rrumpchicagohotel.com

Don’t expect newspapers stacked up at the gift shop at Trump (as a guest, you’re already eligible to receive free digital newspapers and magazines delivered to your tablet or phone via hotel Wi-Fi). Pick up a python handbag by Isabella Adams or one of daughter Ivanka’s bags. You may get blinded by the number of gifts adorned with Swarovski crystals:  Spotligtht tee shirts, jewelry boxes, hair clips, candles and picture frames among the lot. Captains of Industry may go for the line of cuff links made from foreign coins and well-off kids will like one of Hannah’s Kittens – French faux fur stuffed animals. There is is a fun line of costume jewelry from Bene and Bene and if all else fails, snag a Trump chocolate bar that looks like a bar of gold bouillon.
