Milwaukee Gift Guide 2020

Shopping & Beauty

Shopping local has always had a major impact on our community, but this year, Milwaukee small businesses and makers need your support more than ever before. Why not get your holiday shopping done early this year? When you shop at local businesses, you get to skip the lines at the mall and find something more unique than you can order on Prime. We've thought of a few people you might have on your list and the Milwaukee shops and businesses that have the perfect gift for them (or for you!).

Many of these shops have online shopping options, either for delivery or local pick-up. If you do shop in person, remember to mask up and be aware of each store's capacity limits.
