Once again, The Waxwing offers some of the city's cutest, most useful and unique items – many to most are made locally – from more than 300 artisans. Whether you're shopping for St. Nick, Secret Santa, your BFF, the cousin you drew in the family gift lottery, the new sweetie, the old sweetie or for your nice self – there's plenty to choose from.

Earlier this year, Waxwing owner Steph Davies "adopted" the MilwaukeeHome business from Melissa Thornton, so the beloved logo is available on ornaments, pillows, shirts and more. Jewelry, clothing, candles, chocolates, wall hangings, glassware, kids' items, funky cards, magnets, plants, books, natural health and beauty enhancers and the most impressive selection of single-strike matches ever known to woman are also available. Get in there, Milwaukee.
