Shop Cincinnati: A Mom-Sourced Holiday Gift Guide

This post is brought to you in partnership with the businesses featured.

We had so much fun putting together our 2018 Holiday Wish List for you! No matter if you are shopping for the holidays or simply looking for a gift throughout the year, our team has some of our favorite gift suggestions to help you out.

This is a sponsored Holiday Wish List brought to you by our line-up of favorite brands. Every last one of these recommendations has the Cincinnati Moms Blog “stamp of approval,” and we personally solicited all companies for inclusion.

Goldfish Swim School

CMB Gift Suggestion::
Goldfish Holiday Package

Give the Gift of Swim Lessons at Goldfish Swim School!

This holiday season, skip the toy store and give the little ones in your life the gift of swim lessons instead! While supplies last, Goldfish Swim School West Chester and Anderson are offering discounted holiday packages for the little swimmers in your life!

For $199, the limited-edition holiday packages include:

  • 2 Months of Group Lessons
  • Waived Annual Membership Fee
  • Goldfish Tote Bag
  • Just Add Water Sea Animals
  • Bubble Storybook
Swimming lessons provide essential skills and confidence that last a lifetime. Kids learn safety skills while having fun, making friends, building confidence and learning life lessons. Kids love Goldfish’s fun, tropical environment and 90-degree pools. Parents get the peace of mind knowing that their loved ones are learning an essential life skill based on our proven curriculum. There’s no better gift than that!

Tao Float Loft

CMB Gift Suggestion::
Cryotherapy & Float Combo

Give the gift of relaxation this year!

Tao Float offers a one-of-a-kind experience for that special someone in your life who could use an excuse to grab a little time to treat themselves in 2019. There are a number of inherent benefits to floating. One of the most prevalent and noticeable benefits is relaxation. The environment of the flotation pods is designed to create an experience that will give you the feeling of being present, yet separate from your body. Your body feels weightless and after only a very short amount of time you find yourself in a state of just “being”. Other benefits include a reduction in anxiety and chronic pain.

Pair it with a cryotherapy session for the ultimate experience. And yes, you are absolutely allowed to gift this to yourself!

American Legacy Tours

CMB Gift Suggestion::
Under the Market Tour

Give the gift of Cincinnati this year through one (or more) of the unforgettable American Legacy Tours. Their tour guides are engaging storytellers, well-versed in Cincinnati past and present, and even a born and raised Cincinnatian will walk away with some new fun nuggets of knowledge about Cincinnati or Newport. Pair a tour with a day/night out on the town and in our opinion, this becomes the perfect excuse to step away from the kiddos and spend some time with your loved ones. You can’t lose with any of the tour offerings listed below:

  • Queen City Underground Tour
  • Under the Market Tour (NEW!)
  • Bourbon and Spirits Distillery Tour
  • Cincinnati Wine & Dessert Tour
  • Queen City is Haunter Tour
  • Newport Gangster Tour
  • 1919 Baseball Tour
  • Rookwood Factory Tour

Mama in Overalls

CMB Gift Suggestion::
Home Sweet Ohio Tee

Mama in Overalls started as a small hobby that quickly caught on due to her creative designs and super soft, quality fabrics.

With everything from the perfect tee and stylish headbands, to the most adorable toddler outfits (seriously… they are simply precious), shopping at Mama in Overalls will not only help you check off several names from your gift-giving list this season, but we would be willing to bet you will throw something in the cart for yourself too!

Shop local (this mama is from Dayton, OH) and support a mompreneur and small business this holiday season. We are BIG fans of that!
