Fashionable clothing and accessories

From stylish cocktail dresses to “ugly” festive holiday sweaters, Goodwill is the place to find fashionable clothing and accessories at bargain prices. Whether you need a last-minute outfit for a holiday party or a totally unique gift for the fashionista in your life, consider shopping secondhand at Goodwill. Our stores and boutiques are updated daily with fresh inventory, including many clothing and accessories that come to us in “new-with-tags” condition!

White Elephant or Secret Santa gifts

If you’re searching for small, funny, or unique White Elephant or Secret Santa gifts for friends, family, and co-workers, check out your local Goodwill store! We have the perfect “gag” gifts for your holiday parties, including coffee mugs, figurines, and trinkets, all at budget-friendly prices.

Toys and books for children

Shopping for children’s items can become expensive. Stay within your holiday budget by shopping at Ohio Valley Goodwill! We have a large selection of children’s toys, games, and books at some of the best prices around. You can get much more for your dollar when you choose Goodwill over traditional retail stores!

Thoughtful DIY projects

What do you get for the person who seems to have everything? Consider giving them a handmade gift this year! DIY gifts are usually more thoughtful and meaningful than store-bought items since they can be personalized to the person receiving the gift. Instead of shopping at your local crafts store, head to Goodwill to find items you can repurpose into something brand new. The DIY possibilities are endless with Goodwill! For example, shop Goodwill for unique glass vases or jars that you can decorate with some paint or a festive ribbon. Then, fill the jar with homemade cookies or candy for a quick and easy gift that anyone will be sure to appreciate!

Ohio Valley Goodwill is your destination for unique and affordable holiday gifts. Best of all, when you give a gift you purchased from Goodwill, you’re actually giving twice! That’s because the dollars you spend in our retail stores help fund Goodwill’s life-changing skills training and employment services for individuals with disabilities and veterans, helping people in your community go to work. And if you’re still in a giving mood during the holidays, consider decluttering and donating to Ohio Valley Goodwill. We accept donations of clothing, accessories, small appliances, and even car donations for our weekly auto auction. Find your nearest Ohio Valley Goodwill retail store location and shop for everything you need to make this holiday season a success for your family and your community.
