Cleveland is home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, so it should be no surprise that the city has had some great music come out of it.
We love this time of year. Sharing good times with family, friends, and neighbors. The lovely decorations that grace Chagrin Falls. Holiday meals with loved ones.
And, of course, hunting down the perfect gift for someone you love at the area’s amazing gift shops.
That’s why we’ve compiled this list of five great places to find a unique gift in or near Chagrin Falls. We like to share the love!

Whether it’s through volunteering or via charitable contributions, assisting your local nonprofits aids them in making the Chagrin Valley a better place to live.
These are four organizations we think are worth your attention and support:
Getting involved with the Jaycees is a great way to keep some of Chagrin Falls’ most enjoyable happenings alive.
Responsible for events like the Annual Blossom Time festival and the Blossom Time Road Race, as well as volunteering to help decorate the town for the Christmas season, helping the Chagrin Valley Jaycees helps ensure this remains one of the region’s most breathtaking destinations.
The visual arts and the cultural enrichment they provide are vital to any community, which is why the non-profit Valley Art Center works to provide classes, exhibits, and more to thousands of students in Northeast Ohio.
Thanks to their efforts, we enjoy the Valley Art Center Mural, the Art by the Falls outdoor show, and an appreciation for the arts throughout the region, while also helping create a new generation of people who love and create art.
Since 1996, this non-profit organization has worked to improve educational, recreational, and social opportunities for children of the area. Over the years, they have raised over $350,000 for our schools.
All Dads living in the Chagrin School District who want to help find ways to make our schools, family and community better are welcome. Their efforts have helped bring new playgrounds to children, smartboards into their classrooms, playing fields, and more.
Existing for nearly 60 years under several different names, Give! Chagrin Valley is devoted to making life throughout the Valley a little better. Give! identifies local organizations in need and reviews projects those organizations hope to accomplish.
Once beneficiaries have been selected, they work to raise funds, boost awareness, and help make the recipient’s goals a reality.
They are also involved with supporting the Annual Blossom Time festival and related events, and in supporting the efforts of the Chagrin Valley Jaycees.
