Christmas in Chicago with Mom

I'm in my late 20's and bringing my mom to Chicago for a Christmas shopping trip for just one night Dec 7-8. Can anyone suggest some areas to shop where we can find some cool and unique gifts? Likely clothes, housewares/ cooking, or gifts for babies & kids. Also, any suggestions for activities for that night would be great too.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Where is your hotel: North or south of the Chicago River? South = State St. / North = Michigan Ave for shopping.

For your night out, what about seeing, "A Christmas Carol"? Goodman Theatre does a great job, year after year. Get your tickets ASAP.
