We’re in full swing for holiday shopping, and Eric and Ana welcome Kortnee Hass into The Cabin for a cozy look at some great ideas for all the people in your life. Food is always a good gift, whether it’s authentic Danish kringle made and shipped from Racine; platters of cheese, sausage, nuts, crackers and more from a myriad of sources across the state; bacon from Nueske’s and other notable Wisconsin brands; maple syrup from Skinny Sticks or other sources; specialty popcorn from places like Minocqua Popcorn & Puffs or Faris Gourmet Popcorn & Treats; Sheboygan brats; or even turkey gizzards (an odd, but loved by some) from Bay View Packing Company in Milwaukee. Wisconsin beverages like Jolly Good Soda; specialty teas or coffee from one of Wisconsin’s many coffee roasters; or gift cards and passes for Old Fashioneds, craft beers, local wines, or craft spirits from the state’s many distilleries. Other crafted items such as candles, artistic custom skillets - some of which are in shapes like Wisconsin’s outline, and charcuterie (or, one brand, Char-MOO-terie) boards. Some gifts give back all year, like a State Park Pass for 2024 or City Tins, coasters that offer discounts at a variety of restaurants, breweries, and more throughout the year - the aforementioned “passports” at craft breweries, wineries, and distilleries do the same. Unique gifts include things like a Cow Yoga Calendar from Willow Creek Press. Of course, Discover Wisconsin and Cabin merch are great gifts too, and you can take advantage of some great options and holiday deals at!
