It’s here — the November issue of Columbus Parent! And it’s a great one with our all-new, all-local Holiday Gift Guide. We sent our intrepid team of writers out with just one set of instructions — surprise us! And, boy, did they ever. We think you’ll love the ideas they came up with, including dozens of gift possibilities at all price points for kids, parents, grandparents, teachers and even pets! In fact, they came up with so many great suggestions, we’ve held a few in reserve for a last-minute gift guide in December (not that any of us would leave our shopping til the last minute….).

And you’re going to love the responses (and photos) we got from famous Central Ohioans like Jim Tressel, Jack Hanna and more to the question, “What’s the best holiday gift you ever received?”

We also pointed the Neighborhood Spotlight at Gahanna with its plethora of great play spaces (even outdoors in the winter).

And our Go-To Guide deciphers the mysteries of taking your children to the opera, ballet, symphony or theater. You’ll never have to worry about when to applaud or how to dress again!
