Happy Tuesday friends!! With just one Saturday left before Christmas, are you freaking out just yet, or are you already done with your holiday shopping? If you’re local to Madison and still need some gift ideas for your family, friends, or even coworkers, this post is FOR YOU!!
I’ve rounded up some of my favorite gift ideas that are local to Madison. These are still things you can find in store, just in time for the holidays! Everyone is all about experiences lately instead of things, so I focused a little more on experiences than actual items.
Kendra Scott – Hilldale – Home and Jewelry
Kendra Scott, located at Hilldale has the cutest jewelry, along with home items. I love their signature earrings and their holidays sets are adorable! You know I love my jewelry and I have a ton of KS pieces that are timeless! In addition to their current sales, you can get 20% off home items and 50% off jewelry during your birthday month.
If you’re looking more for experiences, try gifting their Color Bar Experience where you can build your own custom jewelry piece! There are so many great options.
Board & Brush – Middleton
You’ve probably heard of Board & Brush before. There are several locations in Wisconsin, but I’ve recently been to the Middleton location, right by Peter Kraus Fitness. If you’ve never been to Board & Brush, it’s not your typical DIY paint nite, it’s an in depth hands on workshop where you learn how to create your project from start to finish. Their style is more trendy farmhouse style. In addition to wood signs, they also do glass, chalkboard, canvas pillows, and more!
Check out their website for more details. They were also nice enough to offer a discount code for the Middleton location. KELSIE22 can get you $15 off a regular workshop (the 3 hour pick your project workshops that are normally $68).
LOFT at Greenway Station
I talk about it all of the time! LOFT is one of my fav stores, not only online, but to go in-store! The LOFT near Madison is in Greenway Station in Middleton. I love going in store and seeing how they set everything up! I always seem to find so much more in store than I would online. (Which could be a good thing or a bad thing at times) 😉 They currently have a 60% off sale happening with code JINGLE. If you’re in need of a gift item for someone, their accessories are amazing- scarves and hats are the best! Don’t know what to get? A gift card should do!!
Paddywax – DIY Candle Bar OR Merchandise
Another EXPERIENCE is Paddywax in Hilldale. I shared a little behind the scenes over on my VLOGMAS videos– it’s the coolest place. You can get a gift card for someone to experience it, OR they also have gifts you can snag in store- pre-made candles, jewelry and so much more!
Restaurant Gift Cards – Food Fight
I love trying out new restaurants, but never know which ones to try out. Food Fight restaurant group in Madison has some great places to try out! Right now, they have a special – For every $100 purchase, you receive a FREE $25 Bonus Certificate! Add more to your gift, or keep it for yourself.
Check out their list of restaurants HERE.
I gifted a few sessions to FLOAT Madison as a gift for my mom and stepdad a few years ago and they LOVED it! There are a couple of these types of places around Madison, but I heard great things about this location, so that is why we chose this one. They currently have a special for 2 60 Minute Floats for only $99!
Another great gift idea is a massage!! I love a good massage and it’s been so long since I’ve had one. Currently, at Massage Envy, buy $100 in Massage Envy gift cards and get a promo card for $25. Gift both or keep the $35 for yourself.
Robertson Cosmetic Center
Instead of a massage, how about a facial? I go to Robertson Cosmetic Center in Middleton, WI (they have a Sun Prairie location too) I suggest a hydrafacial for anyone to try out! Gift the feeling of relaxation, plus some amazing skin!!
Wollersheim Winery and Distillery
Another great experience is to gift someone a wine tasting or even a distillery tour and tasting. Wollersheim has amazing wine and spirits and is a great gift to give!
There are so many more amazing places to gift experiences, but I wanted to share my favs for this post! I hope this helps you snag some last minute gift ideas. Happy Shopping and thank you so much for reading!
