Well folks, it’s that time of year. The holidays really snuck up on me this year but I’m not sad to see them. I always love autumn and try to soak it up as much as possible and as much as I dread winter and the cold, I love the holiday season (I leave the hate and dread for the cold months after Christmas and New Year’s). I’ve been especially excited about spending our first holiday together in our first home. You really break a house in when you celebrate a major holiday in it. We decorated the house and put up the tree this past weekend and have started getting really serious about Christmas shopping. I always try to do plenty of shopping locally and even in a relatively small city like Columbus, there are so many great options. Some of my favorite local shops include Tigertree, Vernacular, and Brim Papery because they have great items for just about everyone in your life. If you live in Columbus (or not), hopefully this can serve as a local gift guide for you.
Ever since moving to Columbus, I’ve discovered so many shops with so many great things and have tried to do my part to support them whenever possible. Sometimes I can find the same thing somewhere else for less, but where’s the fun in that? The best part is that you don’t need to worry about ordering everything on line. Most of these items can be picked up in store. If you want to do some more local shopping this holiday season, check out this gift guide and some of the shops I have linked above and below. There will be more gift guides to come so stay tuned!
