Gift Guide: Local Pride

Want to give something totally different this season? Show off your local (and regional) pride with some unique — and often handmade — items from artists and crafters from Minnesota, North Dakota and Manitoba.

There are lots of Ts on this list (I seriously couldn’t choose which ones to include) but you’ll also find mugs, jewelry and art, so there’s something for everybody on your list.

Most items shown here can be purchased online, but order soon to get your merchandise in time for Christmas.
