Creative Gifts for Kids and Caregivers: Make-a-Wish Come True This Holiday Season!

Oct 27, 2022, 21:52 PM

This year, the Greater Cincinnati Holiday Market is proud to partner with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana (Make-A-Wish OKI), which works tirelessly to make wishes come true for local critically ill children across the Tri-state. 

The holidays can be tough for not only precious kids who have critical illnesses, but also their caregivers… from parents and grandparents, to doctors and nurses, to teachers, tutors and more. The love and care these generous people pour into these sweet kids’ lives each day is inspirational. And the holidays are a great time to show them some appreciation! 

Here are some creative ideas that you’ll find at the Cincy Holiday Market inspired by our Make-A-Wish OKI friends that we hope will encourage you to make someone’s spirit a little brighter. 


Share Some Hometown Team Love

Little Bit of This Sign

At the A Little Bit of This booth #1445, you’ll find unique, hand-crafted home décor pieces made with love!

 If that doctor, nurse or teacher in your life is a Bengals or UC fan, or maybe prefers to showcase their love for their alma mater, this creative booth will customize a special keychain, sign, coaster set, key holder, and more, just for them! 

You can inscribe a special quote, saying, initials, or pay homage to a favorite state or city in the giftable item of your choice.  Also, be sure to stop by the special holiday photo opp area created by A Little Bit of This at the Cincy Holiday Market to capture and share your experience too. 

Locally-Sourced Pampering Products

lahVdah Gift Basket

LahVdah offers handmade, all, natural, customized skincare and beauty products from high quality oils and skin-loving, chemical-free ingredients that you’ll feel good about gifting to that special someone.   

A holiday gift basket filled with fragrant artisan soaps, luxurious lotions, bath bombs, bubble cakes, beauty bars, body butter, facial mask, and sugar scrubs is sure to make the caregiver in your life feel loved and pampered like they deserve. 

Arranged in a keepsake wagon, this makes a perfect gift for a nurse, teacher, mom, sister or grandma! 


Customize a Luvable & Stuffable Animal
