Has the Great Lakes State of Michigan ever before so needed us to support locally-grown, locally-made products? The holiday shopping season is the perfect opportunity to buy meant-to-be-appreciated gifts that are unique, classy and made in Pure Michigan. Simply sit down at your computer. Click the links below. Do your holiday shopping online — and help rally the state’s economy.
This link takes you to the Michigan Bed and Breakfast Association online order form for Gift Certificates in any denomination. They are personalized with names and your message. They can be redeemed the same as cash, anytime within the next five years at any of 130 inspected-for-safety-and-quality B&Bs from the U.P south to the Indiana state line — from the Lake Huron coastline to the Lake Michigan shore. Expect two-day delivery from date of purchase.
If you haven’t heard of it before, Buy Michigan Now is a nonprofit association that delights in promoting Michigan products. It annually hosts a Michigan products’ expo in the Detroit area — and it annually publishes a Michigan Holiday Shopping Guide. Enjoy a wide range of quality merchandise and — again — the convenience of online shopping.
Travel Michigan’s Pure Michigan Campaign has blossomed with innovative fund-raising and promotional merchandise — available to you right here at the click of your mouse. In the event you really, really love to rub elbows with fellow Christmas shoppers, Pure Michigan merchandise can also be purchased at Meijer’s stores across the state.
I discovered this gem in a Pure Michigan Connect blog I subscribe to. The Gift Insider describes its website as “an ultra-hip and highly curated website that reviews and recommends the most under-the-radar and cool gift ideas.”
In today’s blog, it features made-in-Michigan gifts that are truly one-of-a-kind and, as promised, totally cool. Because the Michigan section of the company’s website displays very few of the gifts featured in the blog, I’m connecting you separately to the source of each gift item not included on the web page:
Personalized Wood Creation Wall Art (Pure Michigan Store)
The Harley Bracelet from Marlaina Stone (Birmingham)
Signature Clutches from Hydrangea BLU (Traverse City)
Do you agree these are some cool gifts?
Do you agree that we should make a habit of buying Michigan-made products and merchandise no matter what the occasion?
Tell me what you bought! I’d love to know.
