favorite local places to shop for christmas gifts

Every year, I try to do more shopping at local shops in Columbus. I think the small business movement is very important and I think a gift is a little better when it comes from a local business rather than a big box store, even if it costs a few extra bucks. Here’s a list of my favorite local shops to find gifts in Columbus:

The Book Loft: Who doesn’t love a good book? This place is packed with books for everyone. (German Village)

Tigertree: This is my favorite place for knick knacks of all kinds. Find clothing, cards, accessories, and novelty gifts for all ages. (Short North)

Old World New Home: Find a unique repurposed decor item or a cool piece of furniture for your mom or mother-in-law. (Short North)

Vernacular: This shop may be small but each shelf is stocked with unique home decor items, cute cards, clothing, and more. (German Village)

Homage: Find the perfect tee or sweatshirt for the sports fan in our life. The soft, vintage-style apparel is worth the money. (Short North, Easton)

The Candle Lab: Soy candles, room sprays, or diffusers are the perfect last-minute gift. (Short North)

Bink Davies: This cute store has apparel, home decor, gifts, and novelty items for all ages. (Short North)

Celebrate Local: Find a locally-sourced item for anyone on your list. Product selection includes food items, bottles of wine, jewelry, accessories, and knick knacks all celebrating good ol’ Ohio. (Easton)

Flower Child: Find a unique vintage item in this packed store, including vintage cameras, apparel, accessories, and housewares. (Short North)

Big Fun: Located on High Street, this shop is full of toys that will have you bursting with nostalgia. Find toys, magnets, collector’s items and more for the comic book, Star Wars, My Little Pony, or video-game-lover in your life. (Short North)
