Cincinnati Gift Guide: Home Edition

Whether you have a new house, are looking for a hostess gift or want to show your own home some love, you’ll find inspiration in this Cincinnati gift guide. Why not spoil a homeowner (even if it’s you) and support local businesses this holiday season?

Go Pig 

It wouldn’t be a Cincinnati gift guide without a mention of Rookwood. A hometown favorite, the pottery designs a Queen City Pig holiday ornament each year. This year’s design features a whimsical royal pig complete with crown and sash.  Each ornament is handcrafted by 12 Rookwood artists before it heads to its new home. To order, visit the Rookwood site or stop by the pottery’s shops at Kenwood Towne Center or in Over the Rhine.

All the Fun 

Entertaining family at home for the holidays? Here’s a way to create fun for the whole gang: Watson’s offers a range of shuffleboard tables, like this one from Plank & Hide. Featuring a gray wash over solid oak, this shuffleboard table is both functional and beautiful. Go to or visit their flagship store on Sharon Road in Evendale.

Camargo Treasures 

You’ll be the most valuable guest if you arrive with a present from Camargo Trading Company. Here are two ideas for gifting: A shimmering aluminum salad bowl from Mariposa or an Amber fragrance candle from Lafco. Stop by the shop in Madeira or visit them online.

Warm and Toasty

Donna Salyer’s Fabulous Fur throws are animal friendly and oh-so luxurious. They just might be a chair’s best friend. When you shop online at Fabulous Furs or in the Covington showroom, you’ll find a range of throws in a variety of designs and colors. This faux lynx style, like all the throws, is machine washable and lined with velvet.
