Down to the final week of shopping for gifts for friends and family, donations for others, and ideas for our service workers! We’ve got another gift guide filled with local gift ideas. I was planning to tell you how to order a splurge-level Hot Chocolate Bomb (all the rage right now!) from Pure Imagination Chocolatier, but they sold out in a day! Don’t worry, there are other fun things you can still get to give. The 2020 Holiday Gift Guide is presented by Short North Dental. When it comes to your smile, details matter! Visit Short North Dental at 15 E. Hubbard Avenue.

1. ‘Love Can Come In Many Ways‘, new book by Suzy Ultman, $12. Celebrate the many diverse ways animals, and humans, show their love. The chunky little book is full of colorful characters, radiant rhymes, and 10 fun felt flaps! Buy online, or purchase at Cover to Cover.
2. Luxe Bath Tubba Teas, $8 each from FRESHA. Each muslin bag is hand-dyed in colorful ombre and contains a 6 oz. cello bag filled with our mineral salt blend and one botanical bath tea bag. 
3. Whitening trays with Opalescence Go, $40 (regularly $60), at Short North Dental. Give them (or you!) the gift of a beautiful smile.
4. National Parks Mini Canvas Art, $30 each from Elm & Iron. Give the gift of looking forward to travel. About 6″x6″ or smaller.

8. Two Dollar Radio Guide to Vegan Cooking, $14.99. “A distinctively imaginative spin on a cookbook that could only come from the minds at Two Dollar Radio, combining equal-parts vegan cheffing prowess, humorous stories of adventure and mystery, and punk rock.” 
9. Pavé snake cuff, $48 each, at Rowe. Pavé open hinge snake cuff in gold or silver.
10. Luchador Bottle Opener, $10 at Tigertree. Random colors, but oh so fun for when you can have people over again, or just to bring some fun to your kitchen.

13. Race Inclusion Global Flag Art, by Sage. $35.95 and up at Celebrate Local. Sage is a young aspiring artist and middle school that wants to share her global inclusion designs with the world. She is selling her artwork to save money for her own college tuition to Columbus College of Art and Design.
