Congratulations! If you’re reading this, you survived Thanksgiving, made it past Black Friday unscathed, and successfully navigated your way through regional retailers during Small Business Saturday. And now it’s Cyber Monday. The unofficial online consumer holiday will bring about record sales figures for internet retailers. Though that means fewer people will be venturing out to brick and mortar shops today, it’s not necessarily a bad thing for Milwaukee businesses. There are countless ways shoppers can still support local retailers today without leaving the house. Here are 12 Milwaukee gifts you can buy online as part of Cyber Monday this year.
1. Bounce Milwaukee and Fling Milwaukee gift cards
As if you needed another reason to go to Bounce Milwaukee…and Fling Milwaukee, starting last week (and running through today), you can save 20 percent on all e-gift cards by entering the code “20NICER” at checkout.
2. Bucks tickets
It’s been a long time since it’s been this exciting to be a fan of the Milwaukee Bucks. Now there’s one more reason to be excited. As of Monday morning, tickets to see an awesome Milwaukee squad in the their brand new arena have been marked down even more as part of the Bucks’ “Deal Hunter” sale. There’s a Cyber Monday special where fans can save up to 50 percent on tickets to select games this season. You can Own The Future and buy a present at the same time.
3. Camp Bar apparel
Based on how quickly the northwoods-themed bar opened three locations in and around Milwaukee, it seems like Camp Bar is doing something right. If you’d like to show the word you’re a happy Camper with bar-themed shirts, hoodies, and glassware, today is the last day to save 10 percent on your online order (and get a free koozie) with the code “BFCAMP” at checkout.

11. Wiskullsin clothing
Say what you will about MilwaukeeHome and stuff with “The People’s Flag” emblazoned on it, but it’s tough to argue against Wiskullsin‘s all-around awesomeness.
