Whether you’re donning a parka or stretching a few more uses out of your flip-flops, there’s no denying that the holiday season is upon us! In the spirit of supporting small business and all things Michigan, I’m excited to share some more Michigan gift ideas with you all. Today, I’m partnering with Wood by Al, a handmade home décor business run by Yooper native, Alison Edwards.

Developed while Alison’s husband was on a nine-month deployment in Kuwait, Wood by Al grew out of a time and place where many people might have focused on discouragement rather than inspiration. Citing a desire to create and a need to keep busy, Alison taught herself how to use a scroll saw and wood burner—and voila, a new craft was born!

With a variety of handcrafted wood products such as decorative trays, wall art, ornaments, and more, Wood by Al is a great source for customizable, artisanal gifts. There are also several Michigan-inspired products available—and they’re not limited to just the mitten! Whether you refer to that “land above the bridge” as “Yooperland” or “Home,” there’s plenty of UP love to be found.
