Shopping for Christmas gifts whether big or small can feel like a task. From the hustle and bustle of the holiday rush to trying to stay COVID free, we could all use a simple way to shop for the ones we love and if you're anything like me, online shopping is only the half of it. I am still such a huge fan of immersing myself in the Christmas atmosphere while supporting local businesses and hey, if I only leave my house for one day I definitely want to know I can get my shopping done all in one place while grabbing a few bites! Which is why I love Liberty Center, whether you live in the area or a bit further away, Liberty Center is a great choice for your one-stop shopping for the holidays!
Breakfast/Brunch at Northstar Cafe
Now I know you all know, how much I LOVE Northstar Cafe. From their scaled attention to the ingredients they use, which are locally grown, and organic, to their artisan produced food, which makes any foodie want to dive right in! Not to mention they have options for everyone as they continue to build their community on a local level while maintaining a global responsibility of the health for others, which you can share with the one's you love by stopping by or purchasing a gift card for the foodie in your life.
Celebrate Local & Homage
At these two stops you'll be able to snag some serious unique finds tailored perfectly for those who love Ohio. While Celebrate Local leans more towards homey gifts and Homage is curating clever local clothes, both shops cover all your OH-IO needs. From Ohio themed décor to locally made treats, and apparel that will remind any Ohio graduate of their days on campus, these two picks are sure to make you the Holiday Hero and serve as a reminder to SUPPORT LOCAL.
Burlap & Birch
Talk about a fresh environment! At Burlap & Birch you are sure to find SO MANY gifts for her. Burlap & Birch isn't just for custom furniture or home-goods, here you will find a variety of locally made goods from unique kitchen items, greenery, candles, cozy blankets, organic food options and so much more! Burlap & Birch is working its way to the top of my list to making any house feel like home.
Lunch at Agave & Rye with sips at the Frost Factory
An easy mid-day kraving cure, can be found at Agave & Rye. Their eclectic environment instantly pulls you in but their creative MASSIVE TACOS and flavorful appetizers are what keep you coming back for more. However, proceed with caution, as a mid-day snack, most people only need one taco and an appetizer or two tacos and while the margaritas are worth a try, I'd wait to quench your thirst at the Frost Factory. The Frost Factory has a variety of flavored craft slushies, even seasonal flavors like Gingerbread and Eggnog Colada. You can decide to make yours boozy or stick with a mocktail slushy, they have choices for the whole family to enjoy!
Dessert at Molly's Cupcakes
Don't forget to give the gift of food this year! Molly's Cupcakes not only serves up some delicious cupcakes but they also were winner's of the Food Network's Cupcake Wars! How cool is that! So, besides the fact that they look delicious, they also are masters of making your taste buds tingle! Even after the holidays, Molly's is a great choice to gift to family members, perhaps a friend who received a job promotion and of course for any birthday celebration.
At Liberty Center you can treat yourself while still focusing on giving to the ones you love. With over 100 stores and restaurants, and they are still continuing to grow, Liberty Center is your one stop shop this year for an entire day full of shopping local, snagging some great finds and diving into delicious bites. There is so much to see and do at Liberty Center this season.
