Gift giving season is here, and that means the scramble to find a good gift is on. You could go down to the mall or get a gift card, but isn’t finding something personal and unique a lot more fun?



We think so, which is why we put together this list of five places in the area worth checking out:


The Parsley Pot

697 Ashland Ave, Ashland


Imagine an old barn stuffed with all sorts of unique decorations, hand-crafted goods, interesting gifts, kitchen items, and tons more for the house and home. That’s The Parsley Pot, a great hidden gem in nearby Ashland that deserves a visit if you’re shopping for gifts. From candles to knickknacks to much more, even stuff for pets, there is a lot of variety to dig into here!


Pure Roots

18 N State St, Westerville


When you want gifts with a local touch, Pure Roots is a great choice. With a focus on hand-crafted, locally made gifts, you’ll find everything from Christmas ornaments to knickknacks to kitchen and home goods, plus much more. The store is dedicated to stuff made right here in this area, by local artisans and craftspeople, so you can feel good about your purchase!



236 S Court St, Medina


Talk about unique. The folks at Antiquation offer a variety of gifts focused around décor and the home. That in itself is not unusual, but the nature of their gifts is: they tend to be from reclaimed materials, hand made to turn them into something new and fresh. These are terrific, fun, interesting pieces that you won’t find anywhere else, making this a good stop when you want a truly unique gift.


Something Special Shoppe

185 Old County Line Rd, Westerville


Rocks, minerals, gemstones, jewelry supplies, beads – you won’t find many shops like this one! It’s a throwback to the sort of stores you just don’t find anymore. It’s easy to find a unique gift here. These are truly “treasures from Mother Earth,” as the shop slogan says. Give them a visit. We think you’ll be surprised.



Ruby Moon

229 College St, Wadsworth


A hidden gem packed with hand-made goods, this is a secret little treasure spot that makes for good gift shopping. Much of the store is stocked with hand-crafted goods (often made by the owner herself) along with reclaimed items and more. Just browsing can be a lot of fun! If you’re in a pinch when it comes to finding a gift, try Ruby Moon.
