|Give Something Special this Holiday Season
Avoid the hustle and bustle this holiday season. Give a unique gift that expresses your originality and supports your local community. Shop locally and show your affirmation to Wisconsin’s artisans and family-owned businesses by buying Something Special from Wisconsin™ products.
Companies showcasing the Something Special from Wisconsin™ logo are certified, having the majority of their product ingredients or services coming directly from Wisconsin. “Supporting local businesses is an excellent way to show your Wisconsin pride. You are supporting our state’s hardworking men and women. From farmers to manufacturers, they’re preserving our beautiful farmland and atmospheric main street shops. Something Special from Wisconsin™ products make great gifts and are wonderful additions to your everyday life,” states Jill Makovec, 60 th Alice in Dairyland.
Supporting the Wisconsin way of life is only one of the many benefits consumers will gain by giving “Something Special.” With more than 280 member companies, the variety of gift ideas is endless.
"Every dollar spent on locally-made products and services contributes to a strong Wisconsin economy,” according to Rod Nilsestuen, secretary of the state Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. “Purchasing Wisconsin products positively impacts the quality of life we enjoy in both rural and urban communities.”
The best part of a Wisconsin shopping experience is the ease by which products can be found and purchased. The majority of Something Special from Wisconsin™ member companies own websites and can ship directly to your door.
