Milwaukee Holiday Shopping Guide — Treats & Libations

Sometime last year I decided I wanted to get most, if not all, of my holiday shopping done locally for this year. Milwaukee is overflowing with talented artisans and fantastic shops boasting everything from handmade chocolates to jewelry to ribbon & wrapping paper. Putting together this post made me so proud to call myself a Milwaukeean.

Originally this was just going to be one post, but as I got going I realized the huge number of local stores we have — it was a gigantic post. So we’re starting off with edible items that would be great for hostess gifts, stocking stuffers, etc.
