December 21, 2017 by Sam Frew
Need a gift idea for a friend, family member or coworker? The Experience Columbus visitor centers have many unique gifts that appeal to all types of people:
Help your active friends work out in style while paying homage to their favorite local pizzeria with a Will run for Donatos tank. It pairs perfectly with a #lifeincbus water bottle to keep them hydrated during their run…to Donatos.

If you need a gift for an old school Buckeye fan, the Griffin Hollow bottle opener or Buckeye ornament are just for you! Made from Ohio Stadium's former wooden bleachers, their products are sustainable and literal pieces of Buckeye history. Essential to any OSU gift pack are the famed Anthony Thomas Buckeyes. They also help you explain what the heck a Buckeye is to out of towners.

We all have that friend who is the unofficial mayor of the city. Help them show off their pride in style with a Columbus ball cap, Red Giraffe Designs Ohio necklace or a State of Devotion Ohio link tee. Give the gift of a local shopping spree with a Made in Cbus Trail guide. When they shop at least 4 local businesses in the guide, they'll receive with an exclusive Made In Cbus tshirt to commemorate the trail!
