It’s the holiday season! Time for friends and family, decorating, holiday activities, and spending time in the kitchen – whether you’re cooking and baking or just eating. And, for many of us, it’s time to buy gifts for those we love. Skip all the supply chain issues and spend your dollars locally! We’ve gotten the inside scoop from a bunch of local businesses on the deals they’re either currently offering or will be offering throughout the holidays…so get your list together and check it twice, because some of these discounts won’t last long!

Luluz Designs

Grab all of your favorite Pittsburgh-themed gear from Luluz Design ASAP – she’s offering free shipping only through Cyber Monday when you use the code HolidayShip. We’re definitely eyeing up a set of coasters and some mugs! And maybe a shirt. And bag. And probably just the whole store….

Modern Charcuterie

Nothing says Happy Holidays like nibbling on a holiday charcuterie board…and Modern Charcuterie is currently offering one specifically for the holidays that serves 6-8 people. Between the four cheeses, two meats, fresh and dried fruits, assorted nuts, honey, crackers, and sweet treats, there’s something for everyone! Reserve yours today and be the star of the party!

Lane 51

This is not a drill: Lane 51 is launching their holiday styles at their in-person event tomorrow (Friday, November 9th)! And starting on Black Friday, they’re offering a buy-one-get-a-discount-on-your-second-item, PLUS free shipping. If that wasn’t enough, any purchase made on Black Friday will receive a coupon for their next online purchase, too.

Bachman Candle Co.

Another deal you won’t want to wait on? How about 25% off your entire purchase from Bachman Candle?! It’s only valid on Black Friday, so start picking out your favorite scents now…we absolutely love the Cinnamon Vanilla from their holiday collection, but you really can’t go wrong with any of them.

City Life Adventures

We can’t get enough of City Life Adventures’ Instagram feed, which makes for easy holiday shopping – she offers many of her photos for purchase in various forms! We’re eyeing up this calendar, cards, and magnets. From Black Friday through Sunday, the whole shop will be on sale (anywhere from 10-20%) and email subscribers might get an early surprise in their inbox 😉

Made for Mama Shop

We’ve told you about Made for Mama Shop before (check it out here), and if you haven’t gotten anything from them yet, now is your time! They’re offering exclusive deals throughout the holiday season starting tomorrow for Pink Friday. Make sure you’re on their email list, following them on Instagram, or in the Facebook group so you don’t miss a single deal.

Mazzotta Winery

Who wouldn’t love receiving some wine for the holidays? Mazzotta Winery has already kicked off their holiday deals with $5 shipping on orders of 3 or more bottles, or $1 off each bottle when you buy 4 or more at their Gibsonia tasting room through November 24th. We’ve also heard they have some amazing holiday deals coming up for their email subscribers starting on Black Friday and running the whole way through New Year’s – sign up so you don’t miss any of them!

Best Ever Granola

Everyone’s favorite Pittsburgh-made gluten free and vegan granola, Best Ever Granola, has teamed up with some of their favorite local businesses this holiday season to offer some ah-amazing gift bundles!  These are seriously awesome (read about how much we love them here) and will only be available through Christmas Day.  Currently shipping and offering local delivery!  No container ship required 😉 

Leave the Rest to Me

If you’re a parent or know any parents of babies or toddlers, we can’t say enough good things about Leave the Rest to Me! Seriously…the gift of sleep is one of the best gifts we can think of. Sam doesn’t offer deals very often, so you’ll want to jump on these. Her newborn sleep guide will be $5-off from Black Friday through December 4th. And anyone that books an evaluation call between Black Friday and December 4th and purchases a package before January 1st will get a bonus followup call.

Leo and Lynn Jewelry

You know we love our Leo and Lynn Jewelry (click here for a reminder) and we’re very excited for her holiday discounts! We don’t know all the details, but email subscribers should check their inbox for discount codes, doorbusters, and free gifts with their purchase (while supplies last) Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. And on Giving Tuesday, Leo and Lynn will donate 15% off all revenue to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. You can also get free shipping on all orders, or opt for local pick up in the South Hills. Prefer to shop in person? Visit Leo and Lynn at Handmade Arcade on December 4! Sticking with online? You’ll also find them participating in the Virtual Handmade Arcade from November 27th – 29th.


Stick with us, because this deal is a fun one! Harvie is a member-based delivery service offering over 400 food items sourced from 150+ local and regional farmers and artisans. They’ve created a gift guide of boxes full of the best local and regional specialty products, but you have to be a member to order from the gift guide. Which is where the deal comes in! For a limited time beginning Black Friday, Harvie will be offering a chance to become a Harvie member and get your first box completely free. AND after you sign up, you’ll be given 3 free Harvie gift cards to give to friends and family as your holiday gift. You can opt in to Black Friday updates by texting FRIDAY to (412) 790-3280, or learn more about them and the way they’re reshaping our local food system on their website.
