Columbus Local Holiday Gift Guide 2020


2020 has been a year for the books. While we can celebrate that it’s finally almost over, it’s now more important than ever before to help and support local businesses in our community so they can try to end the year on a positive note. So, what’s the best way to do this? Shop small and shop local this holiday season!

We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite local holiday gift ideas and even some fun ways to safely celebrate this holiday season. Not only are gifts from small businesses usually more unique and carefully made, your support really goes a long way since many of these companies have worked twice as hard this year, jumping through hoops to get them ready for you safely.

  1. Trying to find a gift for a wine-lover on your list? Look no further than Wine on High! For someone who’s really on the good list, gift them their amazing wine club membership. Bummed you can’t see a loved one this year? Send them a bottle of wine with a fun greeting card!

  2. Stressed about cooking for the holidays? Let Zaftig Italian Village take care of it! Their Christmas To-Go Meals, featuring glazed ham, parsley potatoes, asparagus almondine, truffle chocolate cake, and more are sure to delight this season. Oh, and you can also add wine, cocktails, and growler fills to your order. Easy-peasy, yum, and done!
