The holiday season is coming fast and your shopping days are numbered. Don't panic! Here's some great ideas for all the loved ones on your list:

Rock 'n Roll Holiday Flea - Today noon- 5pm. Vinyl records, CDs, cool crafts and vintage wares. Free.

If these events aren't your style - here's a bunch of other goodies:

Cleveland in a Box - Perfect for the out of town family. They're customizable and start at $30 for up to 5 items.


Amazon Prime - You can't get everything local unfortunately. When I'm shopping online, this is one of my go to sites because of Prime. This is a gift they will love all year! Free 2 day shipping is just one of the awesome benefits. Streaming videos, e-books on Kindle, Prime Music and more make this a gift the whole family will love. I love using my Prime membership for all my last minute shopping - that free 2 day shipping is the best!

Cleveland Jam - Locally made jams with cool labels and fun flavors. For the beer lover, Beer Jam made with Raging Red Apple Ale and Great Lakes Brewing Co. Burning River Pepper Jam.


Coffee - For the coffee lovers, get some beans from Rising Star, Pour Cleveland or Zack Bruell's Zack's Brews at Heinen's. Add some homemade treats, some fancy chocolates, or a bagel gift card if you want to make someone really happy.

Books - Support your local bookstore, or better yet, your local authors this year. My favorite was written and published by my friends at Lucky Missy Publishing. The Legend of Tommy the Tiny Christmas Tree is a gorgeous book with a feel good story. Order your copy here.

Sweets - For the ultimate basket for the sweet tooth on your list, combine the following:

  • Coquette Patisserie ~ macarons - sooo many delicious flavors! Pistachio, Pomegranate, Gingerbread, Candy Cane and more.
  • Lilly's Handmade Chocolates ~not only do they make the BEST artisan chocolates in the city, they'll also pair them with spirits for the perfect combo.
  • Malley's ~ the classics done right. Great choices are chocolate covered pretzels, Chocolate Santas, hot fudge sauce or Malley Oh's.
