CLEVELAND (WJW)– Want to keep your gift buying local this Christmas? Then we have a few ideas.
The holiday hostess:
Everyone takes wine as a hostess gift. Instead, opt for a unique twist on maple syrup from Simple Gourmet Syrups. The Holmes County business also makes glazes, dry rubs and infused vinegar.
Or stop by Urban Planting Cleveland, and pick up a perfect succulent and planter.
The cousin who doesn't live in Ohio anymore:
Simple. Send them back home with a six-pack of Great Lakes Brewing Company Christmas Ale. It will have their friends jealous of the Cleveland beer scene.
The animal lover:
A 2020 Cleveland APL pet calendar. Cute photos of pets for $10 and it benefits the APL.
