MN-made gift idea: Made by Michelle Brusegaard prints

Minneapolis artist Michelle Brusegaard creates personalized, screen-printed gifts – from tees to home decor.

This story is part of GoMN's 2017-18 Winter Guide.

Michelle Brusegaard has produced printed goods since 2006. After receiving her BFA in painting and photography from UND she taught herself how to screen print, “since paintings are hard to sell.” Under her Made by Michelle Brusegaard brand she creates prints on graphic tees, tote bags, bandanas, earrings, and decorative banners.

Besides her card with a cartoonified, hand-drawn image of Cher paired with the phrase “Chery Christmas,” she offers a wide range of greeting cards and stationery to add a personal touch to gift giving during any occasion. 

During the holiday season, the northeast Minneapolis-based artist also suggests gifting her range of 2018 calendars ($20-$25) and cozy scarves ($12-$32) that both feature originally designed prints, including flowers, agates, grasshoppers and cats. (Products range from $3-$40; www.michellebrusegaard.bigcartel.com)

Brusegaard personal winter shopping guide outside of her giftable creations, includes a range of local crafters. Here is her list: landmark illustrations by United Goods, ethically sourced handmade decor and accessories by True Ethic, vintage meets modern jewelry by Larissa Loden, "Minnesota Nice" tees by Garth MPLS, and honey and skincare products by Worker B.
