Ever since it opened this past summer in River North, the blow-dry bar Blowtique has been doling out ’dos with three-day staying power to many a happy customer. Now the salon offers a Blow-Out Survival Kit—a perfect gift for mom, sister-in-law, boss, or bridesmaid. After all, the gift of a good hair day is appreciated by all. The kit includes a terry-lined shower cap, a purse-size dry texturizing spray by Oribe, and a handful of alligator clips.

$35 at Blowtique, 1 E. Huron St., 312-280-2400; or blowtique.com
