This post is brought to you by The Commerce Team. We operate independently of Editorial, and if you take advantage of an item or deal we recommend, we get a share of the sale. We read the comments, and we want your feedback.
How do you shop local? We all do it, and everyday we’re asked for cool Milwaukee area gift ideas and interesting places and sites to go to to help be represent Milwaukee to a friend, business client, family member or whomever.

I love the MilwaukeeHome brand, and feel a nice sense of Milwaukee pride in knowing that I wrote the first profile piece on the company when it was just beginning. Since then, it’s truly taken off and become a part of our city’s identity.
Today, the OnMilwaukee.com Shop Local marketplace offers a cool summer item, the official MilwaukeeHome stainless steel water bottle.
Just buy one, fill it up and go about the great Milwaukee summer. Of course, it works all year round, too. And, you'll feel good in knowing that a percent of the sale goes to Wisconsin Friends of Animals, Inc.
