Shop // Local Gift Guide

I’m a big fan of shopping small local retailers, and I work with these businesses so much that I consider many of the business owners friends. However, I’m also a fan of sitting at home on the couch and shopping online–I mean, that’s just common sense. For a while it seemed as if never the ‘twain should meet, but many Cincinnati-area retailers have gotten hip to the e-commerce game and offer a variety of their goodies online. I took the liberty of rounding up a few of my favorite gift items for your shopping pleasure:

    Love the list! Although I was really excited to see more local cosmetics, I ~think~ the brand you posted isn’t really what I would consider local. Just a rebrand of an out of the country wholesaler. :/
    Can I point you in the direction of sweet libertine? They’re actually formulated and sold here in Cincinnati.

    PS: I’m not affiliated with this company at all, I just like giving local companies a signal boost!
