Hype MKE Holiday Gift Guide

The Kid

First Stage Class: These classes are not just for the aspiring young thespian. They’re a blast for everyone and a great way for the little one to meet kids the same age.

Harlem Globe Trotter Tickets: Mix basketball acrobatics and comedy to get a show that won’t be forgotten.

Blue Man Group: A pure spectacle. In addition, buy a bottle of blue paint and tell them that their strict “blue-only” policy means that they will have to paint themselves blue for the show. Wait for a reaction.

Discovery World: Will definitely fill your kid’s sense of curiosity. A membership will get you free admission all year long.

Zoo Pass: It seems like the young ones never get tired of seeing their favorite animals. Buy the Zoo Pass holiday package and get free zoo entrance for a year plus some cool extras.


Classes at Dancework: Perfect present for the dancer in the family (or the one willing to try). Wide range of dance styles being taught: hip-hop, jazz, ballroom. Just to name a few

Snowboard Rental: Great place to go for first-time boarders. Experienced staff will provide the complete set up for a weekend at the hills.

Screen Printed Poster: Good gift to finally replace the torn Bob Marley or Team Edward poster in the bedroom. Comes in a handful of different colors.

Vinylville Covers: With names like “Cycloptopus” and “SanSquash’d” these creative decals are perfect ways to adorn a MacBook without the ugly collage of mix match stickers.

Illwalkee: Sneakers. Boards. This guy will work with you to provide a completely custom design that is sure to have your giftee stand out this holiday season and beyond.

Shirts from Heavy Rotation: By far some of the coolest tee’s to come out of Brew City. Male and female styles available.

Wife/ Girlfriend

Jewelery from Sparrow Collective: Support local business by gifting beautiful hand-crafted, one of a kind jewelry, much of which is made right here in Milwaukee.

Massage: The holidays are great, but sometimes they can prove to be pretty demanding. A massage is a perfect cure to help her relieve some of that holiday stress.

Alterra Coffee/ Rishi Tea: A great stocking stuffer, these will insure she stays warm during the cold winter months ahead.

Northern Chocolate: Best chocolate in Milwaukee. Hands down. But make sure you bring cash and forget the fur at home. There’s a reason they call this chocolatier the “Chocolate Nazi”.

Dress from Fred: This local boutique offers dresses that are sure to impress. Knowledgeable staff here are happy to help.

Boyfriend/ Husband

100 years of Harley: While he may not have a bike of his own, this will sure make him wish he did.

Milwaukee Film Membership: Excellent gift for the movie buff. Includes tickets to member-only screenings every month and discounts to the annual Milwaukee Film Festival.

Orange One Bicycle: For the road warrior. Surefire way to cause bike envy among his fellow biking buddies.

Shave: Do away with the plastic, multi-blade razor for once and have him indulge in a straight razor shave. It will certainly put a smile on his fresh, clean-shaven face.

Brewery Tour: A tour of a local brewery which includes a bit of sampling. Doesn’t get better than that.

Hat from Brass Rooster: There’s nothing like a good lid for a man’s head and the Brass Rooster has the best.  Guaranteed.
