With the holidays in full swing and Christmas just days away, Santa’s not the only one with a long shopping list. Fortunately, there's Worthington, a town teeming with quaint boutiques, specialty shops and delicious restaurants—and one of Central Ohio's favorite destinations. If you're faced with a daunting last-minute shopping list—or you're just looking for some holiday fun—here's a rundown of what you’ll find in Worthington: If you’re looking for bling – When in doubt, you can’t go wrong with something sparkly. Lucky for you, Worthington is home to two family-owned jewelry stores, Denig Jewelers and Worthington Jewelers. Both stores feature a large collection of custom and designer jewelry, as well as a gorgeous selection of engagement rings.
If you’re looking for gift shops – It doesn’t take long to realize that Worthington is a city that appreciates art and creativity. From handmade letterpress cards, calendars and stationery at Igloo Letterpress to adorable children’s items, jewelry and art at Fritzy Jacobs, you’ll find something for everyone on your list at one of Worthington’s numerous gift shops.
If you’re looking for home décor – Searching for the perfect house-warming gift? Or perhaps you’re in the market for a new piece of furniture? Take a stroll down High Street in Old Worthington. From unique consignment pieces at Peacock Lane Home to handmade items at Wren House Gifts, French and English country antiques at Pure Cottage and modern finds at Grid Furnishings, your home will thank you.
If you’re looking for specialty shops – What to buy for the friend who has everything? How about a lovely vintage wine from Worthington’s favorite specialty beer and wine store, House Wine? Or if sweets are more your style, perhaps a melt-in-your-mouth treat like Sassafras Bakery’s signature Double Crust Apple Pie?!
If you’re looking for a great lunch spot – A day of shopping can be exhausting. After browsing the streets of Old Worthington or hitting up the recently renovated Shops at Worthington Place, you’ll want to make a pit stop at one of the city’s many fantastic restaurants. Stop into La Chatelaine for delicious soups, salads and sandwiches; The Whitney House for classic comfort staples like adult grilled cheese and house fries; or Harold’s American Grille for a Reuben sandwich and a cup of French onion soup. Or head over to The Worthington Inn for a bowl of butternut squash bisque and one of their grass-fed Ohio beef burgers.
