The new issue of Columbus Parent is out this week (you'll recognize it by the cute little baby snowman on the cover)!

Once again, for our November issue, we've got the best, most hyper-local holiday gift guide you could hope to get your mittens on! Whether it's a hand-crafted wood toy-car carrier from Westerville's Sawdust Workshop (for only $25!) to a rubber-band jump rope from the Ohio Statehouse Museum Shop ($8.50!), we've collected more than five dozen great gift ideas for you!

We've also created a holiday-event guide (after noticing how many holiday events like the Zoo's Wildlights and the German Village Lights start or happen before our December guide comes out), plus we've got the low-down on making the most out of a pre-holiday family trip to Chicago! And if all the great LEGO exhibits in town have you excited, you'll definitely love our story on how to throw a LEGO-themed party.
