Holiday Gift Ideas: Made In Wisconsin

Finding the perfect holiday gift can be a tricky task. But fear not, we’ve rounded up Wisconsin-made gifts guaranteed to put you on anyone’s nice list.

For the Foodie

Maryland loves crab cakes; Kansas loves barbecue; and Wisconsin L-O-V-E-S cheese. It’s what we do. You can rest assured foodie friends will swoon over an overflowing box of glorious cheese. Cheese gift baskets from Fromagination range from $29.99 to $99.99 and can be shipped around the world! We’ve got our eye this toothsome (and aptly named) assortment, “The Cheese Stands Alone Wisconsin Farmstead Cheese Collection.”

For the Sports Fanatic

2011 has been a hot year for Wisconsin sports. The Green Bay Packers won The XLV Super Bowl and The Milwaukee Brewer’s clinched the NLC Championship. Score Packer’s gear and Brewers Gear for the Sports Fanatic in your life.

For the Wine Aficionado

No need to flock to California or France to stock up on the year’s best vino. Believe it or not, Wisconsin is home over 35 vineyards! Wollersheim Winery in Prairie du Sac is one of Wisconsin’s most-celebrated vineyards. Self-acclaimed sommeliers will be wowed with a Caseclub membership, which includes a case of wine and exclusive offers.

For the Sweet Tooth

Racine Kringles have been celebrated in National Geographic and devoured by President Barack Obama. “What’s a Kringle?” you ask… A Kringle is a thin and decadent Danish pastry with hundreds of years of history. They are filled with fruits or nuts, topped with buttercream and make a fabulous companion to a hot cup of coffee.
