Check out the latest entry in a series of Short North Arts District gift guides below.
Bibliophiles and logophiles alike will adore a handsome vintage typewriter, part of On Paper’s collection of pristinely restored collection. All are in working order and all for sale. Let your loved one write a novel, a letter, or even just a note and capture the nostalgia of the past.
Star Jewelers on High
Give the bling lover in your life some Italian flair with intaglio gemstone stud earrings, set in Yellow gold with bright blue topaz and mother of pearl.
Experience the magic of yoga with a gift box from Heartfelt Yoga. Go beyond gifting a gift certificate with a mindfully curated set meant to be better for the environment and good for the mind, body, and soul, all contained in a cute, reusable wooden crate. A $120 value for only $89, and includes a month of unlimited yoga.
(Not) Sheep Gallery
(Not) Sheep is the perfect place to find a gift for the person with interesting, unique artwork throughout their house. Artist Richard Garriott-Stejskal’s 8” stoneware sculptures, which are based on his work as an art therapist for veterans, are representations of dreams and memories. The face is the same in all, eerily familiar yet neutral as to gender or person.
Give the nature lover in your life a beautiful and ethically made set of butterfly wing earrings from Glean. The butterflies featured in the jewelry are hand raised in farms and sanctuaries that encourage education and preservation of precious natural habitats and help to bolster native populations. Sadly, a butterfly’s lifespan is typically pretty short, just a few weeks. After passing naturally, butterflies are collected from the ground, and are honored in these pieces, so they can be enjoyed and appreciated for years to come.
A handmade, live-edge cutting board from Created Hardwood is the perfect addition to any kitchen of food lovers and home chefs.
Gift The Table to your favorite foodie this holiday season. Their charcuterie, loaves of house baked bread, and/or bottles of wine offered at retail prices are perfect for holiday parties. You can also grab gift cards as great hospitality presents to all your holiday party hosts.

Your lucky recipient will get to experience pouring their own custom-scented candle to be enjoyed for hours to come. Simply choose an empty jar off their shelf, and they’ll package it up nicely. Add a special gift box or a set of matches in a fancy glass jar for a complete gift.
