How many times have you run out of ideas or time and end up with that small plastic, impersonal gift card to a mall or a store, and all the while you’re wishing you had come up with a more unique gift idea!
But we don’t stop there! We will personalize your Gift Card to the interests of the gift recipient.
Here are some examples of what can be done:
For the wine lover, we can map out the local wineries and include brochures about each winery and give directions to the best wine store in Oberlin. When your guests arrive they will be presented with a bottle of wine and 2 Hallauer House wine glasses. Why not present the gift card in a wine bucket with a bottle of wine!!
For the history buff , we can map out the local history museums in Oberlin, Wellington, Amherst, Lorain, and Elyria and include brochures about each museum so the recipient can get a taste of history before they come. And of course our Innkeeper is an expert on the Civil War and the Underground Railroad and will tell many stories at breakfast. When your guests arrive, they will be presented with a Civil War era candle mat hand made by a local artist. Why not present the gift in a book on the Civil War!
For the art lover, we can map out a trip to the fabulous Cleveland Museum of Art and our own local nationally acclaimed Oberlin Art Museum. We can also direct them to our FAVA (Firelands Association of Visual Arts) Gallery in downtown Oberlin as well as the Gingko Gallery where they will find items made by local artists and an amazing offering of incredible art supplies. When your guests arrive they will be presented with a small handmade gift of art. Why not present your gift in an art object or an art book.
For the antique lover, we can map out a route of some fabulous local antique shops as well as the famous Jamie’s Flea Market (open only on Wednesdays and Saturdays) and the really special resale shop just a half mile away from the B & B! Upon arrival your guests will be presented with a recycle bag to carry home all of their purchases! And while here your guests can enjoy the many antiques at Hallauer House. Present your gift inside or along side a desired antique.
For the biking enthusiast, we can include a map of the wonderful Back Roads and Beaches Bike Tour stretching throughout Lorain County. Or your guests can ride the Rails to Trails Bike Path which extends from Elyria to Kipton with Oberlin being in the middle. More bike paths will be opening next year! If your guests are into cross country biking they would enjoy that course at Findlay State Park just 8 miles south of Oberlin. When your guests are ready to ride we will give them each a small lunch-to-go. Present your gift with a bike water bottle.
For the lover of parks and walks in the park , we can include maps of some of Lorain County’s 18 Metro Parks, each one having a different theme and activities. There is the bird watching park, the prairie park, the visitor’s center, the equestrian park, the primitive park, the rose garden and beach park, the conservatory park just to name a few. When your guests are ready to hike, we will give them each a small lunch-to-go. An idea for presenting your gift might be in a back pack!
And those are just examples! More ideas good be for the music enthusiast, the theater enthusiast, the adventure enthusiast, the movie enthusiast. If you have a special idea of what you would like, we will work with you to set up the perfect Themed Gift Card Package.

Gift Card purchase we will include a Lorain County map, a list of Oberlin restaurants, Cleveland and Lorain County visitors guides and a few other brochures of local attractions.
