Midwesty Gifts to Help You Get Into the Fall Spirit

It’s bittersweet to say goodbye to summer. Though we'll miss the long days of warm sunshine, the cozy promise of fall in the Midwest is calling our name. The multicolored, crunchy leaves, chilled air, and layered outfits are cornerstones of the season in this region and every year they signify to us that the world is experiencing a reset, that the shifting weather indicates a new beginning. This year, though, we're relying on some traditionally Midwestern fall comforts to really get me into the spirit. 

A Cozy Sweatshirt

We know it’s autumn when we reach for the sweaters in our closets after a summer filled with t-shirts and tank tops. The Sun Will Always Rise sweatshirt was just added to the shop, as well as some other comfy picks to keep you cozy all fall long. This sweatshirt will keep you warm as temperatures dip, and still keep you looking put together.



Bored of burning candles? Then try out these new delightfully, smelling incense. Inspired by the agave fields of Mexico, these sticks are sure to warm up your home on a cool fall day. They come in four different scents, and we're sure you'll find one you'll love.

Track Your Trails

As the leaves begin to change, people will begin to partake in the ever to popular activity of "leaf peeping". Wisconsin is home to more than 66 state parks, which are perfect places to peep at the trees as they make their reset.

Transform your home into a local pumpkin patch that makes the most mouth watering, homemade apple cider donuts.
