A last minute party invitation. A workplace white elephant exchange. A busy schedule.

Try as you might, it seems there’s always something that keeps you from sticking to your plan to get your holiday shopping done early this year. And then there’s the thought of fighting the crowd of shoppers who are in a similar predicament, or of giving less-than-thoughtful gifts. Plus you have to wrap them. How is your stress level right about now?

Take a deep breath and relax; the Short North Arts District is here to help. Apart from giving you another great excuse to visit the many unique shops and restaurants in the district, this weekend’s Wrap It Up Saturday also lets you make your list and check it twice, get all your gift wrapping done, enjoy performances by local artists, and give back to the community, too.

On Saturday, Dec. 19, shop in the Short North Arts District during Wrap It Up Saturday for a variety of perfectly giftable items along High Street including art, home decor, accessories, unique clothing, and more, and get free gift wrapping with purchase from select retailers. Performers will be stationed around the district to lift your holiday spirits while you shop, grab a holiday drink, and enjoy the festive decor.

Want to give a little more this year? Stop by Le Méridien Columbus, The Joseph Hotel to donate gently-used accessory scarves to Dress for Success Columbus, or go to The Garden Theatre to donate nonperishable food items for Neighborhood Services Inc. and you’ll receive free gift wrapping in exchange. Whether you hide your gifts from prying fingers or stash them under the tree to pique excitement, you can go home to finally relax, cozy up with a hot beverage, and bring your shopping season to a most satisfying close.

Wrap It Up Saturday is Dec. 19 from noon-6 p.m. Stores offering free gift wrapping include Star Jewelers, Rivet, Global Gifts, Glam356, pm gallery, Happy Go Lucky Home, Happy Go Lucky Her, Camelot Cellars Winery, Sherrie Gallerie, Revolution Cycles, Rose Bredl, and Couture on High. Le Meridien Columbus, The Joseph Hotel is located at 620 N High St; The Garden Theatre is located at 1187 N High St. Donations are not required but are requested.
