Hi girl about columbus fans! I’m Ashley, a costume designer, fashion enthusiast, and the local blogger behind StyleOnHigh. I love shopping locally and, in my opinion, Columbus has some of the best local designers and boutiques! As a regular girl about columbus reader myself, I was especially thrilled to team up with Amanda this Valentine’s Day (she’s SO awesome!) and bring you all my personal guide to the best gifts in the city!
I visited some of my favorite local shops to find what I think are the most unique and romantic gifts for your Valentine, from the very luxe (because sometimes a gift should be a splurge) to the more budget-friendly. First up are my picks for the ladies…

And for the fellas…

When it comes to gift-giving in particular, I love the idea of shopping locally for unique finds. And after all, when your neighborhood stores are this incredible, it makes supporting local businesses a breeze, right?!
Thanks for having me today! 🙂 I hope these ideas helped you find the perfect gift for your special Valentine! You can check out Amanda’s guest post, Local Valentine’s Date Ideas with Girl About Columbus, on my blog, here.
