Hopefully you are quite close to finishing up the last of your holiday shopping, but if you are still looking for a few last-minute suggestions for Midwestern-oriented gifts, here are a few companies that have a Midwestern tie.
We also have a few affiliate ad relationships with a few Midwest-oriented companies like Wisconsin Made (for kringles, cheese ham and other goodies), KitchenAid (which manufactures a number of their small kitchen appliances in states like Ohio and Indiana), John Deere (a company with farm and lawn care equipment as well as toys, clothing and other gifts which has its world headquarters in Moline, Illinois), and the Chicago Steak Company
Looking for a little motorized fun? Check out places like Harley Davidson, Victory, Indian or Polaris or pick up some parts or accessories for your rides at Revzilla (There are a couple of things for Tim under our tree from Revzilla!).
Duluth Pack is another Midwestern company that we like for its Minnesota-made bags like the shell bags that we use as camera bags or Duluth Pack briefcases, book bags, haversacks, duffel bags or other travel bags. They are attractive and durable, and we've purchased many of them over the years.
Check out Carhartt for outdoor clothing or active wear, either online or by visiting their Detroit store in midtown near the Wayne State University (our alma mater!) campus.
