Whether your loved ones will be toasting to another great season in 2017 or proudly displaying some championship artwork, there's something special for every fan who bleeds Cubbie blue.

Check out some of our favorites:

Toast To The Cubs' Historic Win

It seems the World Series championship logo has been plastered on just about anything with enough room. That's great news for Cubs fans who want to commemorate the historic season with a drink in hand.

The Lakeview gift shop also has championship wine glasses for $24 and beer mugs for $22. Over at M2 Boutique, 3527 N. Southport Ave., growlers come with the championship logo for $28.

Need to crack open that brewski? M2 Boutique also has a standing bottle opener for $28 that comes "Reserved for Cubs fans."


Deck The Halls With Cubs-Themed Artwork

In fact, Chicago artist Ryan Duggan was commissioned by ESPN to illustrate life in Chicago during the postseason. His 16"x20" "Let's Rally" print is $30 and is hand-printed and signed.

Another popular print comes from Kevin O'Rourke, whose Wrigley Field block print can be found in two different sizes at Inkling, 2917 N. Broadway. Get the new, smaller 11"x14" print framed for $50, or there are unframed and 18"x24" options.

Photographer Joshua Mellin was on the ground during the World Series at Wrigley Field, and his stunning photos are bursting with color. From the Cubs-colored Chicago skyline to fireworks at Wrigley Field, the prints will delight any Cubs fan and come in various sizes and an optional metallic finish for $4 to $40.

Painter Nancie King Mertz has traveled the world, but you'll find some of her best work comes from sweet home Chicago. Get these prints of her oil paintings of "Waiting For Game Day" and the Art Institute lion donning a Cubs cap in various sizes at Art De Triumph, 2938 N. Clark St.

Flying the W has never been so stylish with this $88 W flag art piece from Wrightwood Furniture, 3036 N. Lincoln Ave. Like the company's similar Chicago flag wall art, the W flag is 32"x23".

Get it for $27.56 online, or find it in Foursided, Rep Chi in Jefferson Park, Local Goods in Edgebrook and Judy Maxwell House in Old Town.
