Valentine's Day Gift Guide

Leslie Koch

There's a special someone in your life and you want to get them something spectacular for Valentine's Day. But, what do you get them? Take a deep breath, eat some chocolate and let this list of gift ideas come to your rescue:

  • Watch: Give your special someone a gift they will treasure all year long. Every time they check the time, they'll think of you. 
  • Custom stamp: How cool would it be to have your own personalized stamp? You can write both your names or signatures on the stamp to always remember your love. A great way to liven up thank-you notes. 
  • Necklace: What better way to keep your Valentine close to your heart, than engraving their name on a special necklace, made just for them. It's as beautiful as your love. 
  • Coasters: If your bae is slowly ruining your wooden table, subtly remind them to use a coaster, with these customizable coasters, available in ceramic tiles or in cork. 
  • Homemade cookies: Any Valentine will sincerely appreciate the time and effort spent crafting some delicious goodies. 
  • Magnet: A simple yet useful gift to hold important photos, shopping lists or notes on the fridge.
  • Candle: Nothing burns brighter than your love... except for this candle. Our scented soy candles last over 90 hours and include a heartfelt message and personalized gift inside a glass bottle.
  • Phone case: A practical yet lovely gift for that will keep you two in-sync. 
  • Cactus: This little green succulent will grow with some TLC and is long-lasting, just like your love. They will treasure this prickly plant forever. 

If all else fails, you can't go wrong with a sincerely written card, flowers and box of chocolates.

Thanksgiving Prep: Involving Your Kids

Scavenger Hunt for the Centerpiece

When family comes over this Thanksgiving, invite the kids to go on a fun outdoor scavenger hunt and create a centerpiece with what they find. 

Customize the list below to fit your neighborhood or local park and challenge older kids to find more specific items like "a red leaf that's bigger than your hand." 

After the scavenger hunt, gather up all the items and incorporate them into your Thanksgiving centerpiece. Then sit back, and be thankful for the pride they feel from their contribution. 

The Joys of Giving Back

Leslie Koch

We believe in the power of giving and want to show kids the joys of giving back. 

Whenever a child makes a gift at Good Makery, we give them a symbolic coin that they can deposit into a piggy bank. We donate the contents of the piggy bank to a local charity. Right now we are happy to be donating to the Bike Lady

Bike Lady is a Columbus-based charity that strives to give bikes and helmets to children under the legal custody of the county or state, such as Franklin County Children Services.  Since 2008, they have given over 6,477 Ohio foster children a brand new bicycle, helmet and bike lock.  

We first met the charity at the Grandview Hop. The girl pictured above was riding a bike through the crowd asking for donations in exchange for a chance to win this bike. 

A bicycle is one of the most meaningful gifts a child can receive because it provides a sense of independence and allows them to visit friends, ride to the park or get to school. 

The bike parts are shipped from Huffy directly to Department of Rehabilitation and Correction locations such as the Pickaway Correctional Institution in Orient where the bikes are assembled. Without the work of the Bike Lady, many children might never experience the joy and freedom of a bicycle. 

We are thrilled to be donating a portion of our profits to the great work the Bike Lady is doing in our community.  Make an appointment with us 614.563.7321.
