November 29, 2022 (DAYTON, Ohio) – The holiday shopping season is in full swing, and goods from downtown’s unique, independent retailers make great gifts for everyone on your list! The Downtown Dayton Partnership (DDP) is making it easier to check off your holiday shopping list by assembling great gift ideas from local businesses in the 2022 Downtown Dayton Holiday Gift Guide.

This interactive, digital catalog features more than 100 ideas organized into easy-to-navigate categories and is available now on the Downtown Dayton Partnership website. Gift ideas in the Downtown Dayton Holiday Gift Guide include art, tangible goods, food and beverage options, as well as experiences and activities that are sure to impress anyone on your list.

“This guide is a handy tool to find the perfect gift for anyone you’re shopping for this holiday season,” said Sandra K. Gudorf, president of the Downtown Dayton Partnership. “When you shop small, you’re not only finding unique gifts for loved ones but directly supporting the independent, local retailers who make our community shine.”
