Ready or not, the holiday season has arrived! As you begin your shopping, we hope you will consider buying local this year by purchasing an Ohio Proud gift basket. What better way to celebrate than to give a gift that supports local businesses in your community, while getting unique and thoughtful gifts for everyone on your list?

Every product in these baskets is at least 50% raised, grown or produced in Ohio. Ohio Proud products can be found in your local grocery store, or specialty retailers such as Celebrate Local (Easton), Simply Vague (Tuttle), The North Market and the Ohio Statehouse Gift Shop (Downtown Columbus).

With a big help from Celebrate Local, we bring to you some amazing themed gift baskets. CL has an extensive variety of Ohio Proud products, assuring a gift for everyone on your holiday list. We have highlighted many of them below, and more will be showcased through Ohio Proud’s Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest pages.
