As you’re making your gift lists this year, you might be thinking, “what do I buy for that person who already has everything?!” 

Well, you must be on Santa’s nice list, because we have curated several unique and trending ideas to help you ensure your gifts are not returned or re-gifted. And after the difficult year so many small businesses and local vendors have had, this holiday season is a great time to support small and shop local. You will find all of these unique and trendy gifts from locally owned businesses at the Greater Cincinnati Holiday Market, November 12-14!
