Gift options are endless, but our wallets aren’t. To help you focus your gifting on some sure-to-be-loved options check out our Ultimate Gift Guide. 

Evanovich Landscape Center

Your “Everything Christmas Decoration” destination has to be Evanovich Landscape Center in Bethel Park. From October thru December they turn their 5,000 square foot garden center show room into a winter wonderland Christmas Shoppe. Have fun exploring and picking out oodles of decorations with your family and check out their Dept 56 Village Display. Make the season merrier and brighter by also picking out your real or artificial wreath and fresh-cut or artificial tree, too!

Western Edge Seafood Outlet

Where my Italian-Americans at? You probably already know that there’s no better place to stock up for the Feast of the Seven Fishes than at Western Edge Seafood Outlet in Washington, PA. But did you also know that they’ve got amazing affordable Holiday Combos, too? No matter who you are you can have a tasty Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Years, holiday party, weekend party, Sunday brunch, or just cheer up a mid-week meal simply by grabbing their Seafood Party Pack, Seasonal Seafood Combo, or Ultimate Seafood Medley. 

Schiffman’s Jewelers

Be ready to bling in the New Year with a visit to Schiffman’s Jewelers in the Cultural District. But you better hurry because they are in the middle of their Going Out of Business Sale.

With such amazing deals you can shop for your loved ones, friends, yourself, your pet, your neighbor, and even your PAT bus driver! Now’s the time to buy for a planned engagement, an unplanned engagement, every anniversary and milestone, every birthday, and all your get-out-of-the-doghouse apologies. To top it all off they are also offering a chance to win 1 carat diamond earrings!

Made in PGH

Naturally we think all Made in PGH swag makes the perfect gift (wink wink), but our Pittsburgh Skyline Cropped Hoodie, printed locally at Revival Print Co, is the ultimate cozy gift for a fleece Navidad.

De Fer Coffee Basket

Everyone has at least one friend you all know is the coffee lover. From their favorite “…until I’ve had my coffee” mug to their non-stop talk about grinding their own beans they looove coffee. So you must introduce them to De Fer Coffee & Tea. Make them a gift basket of these responsibly and ethically sourced coffees and teas. 

Steel City

Steel City Clothing Co is a Pittsburgh born-and-raised clothing company grown out of love, determination, and grit. Shop their gifts (like the “Wish Yinz a Merry Christmas” t-shirt) and send your loved ones warm-and-fuzzy “I love my hometown” feelings. 

Mix Candle Co.

Tis the season for warm glowing lights, so give the gift of a gift pack of candles from Mix Candle Co. Each candle is hand-poured in small patches at their Lawrenceville shop. 

Storehouse Neutral

Storehouse Neutral is boutique in Pittsburgh that’s dedicated to neutral, classic, and minimalistic home decor, apparel, and jewelry – like this 9” planter pot and stand. Storehouse is an online boutique with a physical location in the Lawrenceville Market House.

Give the Gift of Unforgettable Experiences

Pittsburgh is home to plenty of museums and cultural destinations, many of which offer memberships. Give the gift of unforgettable experiences, new memories, and conversation starters by gifting a membership to Phipps, 4 Carnegie Museums, Pittsburgh Zoo, or the National Aviary. Or go the fill-their-bellies route and give them a gift to a local restaurant – like tako, Poulet Bleu, DiAnoia’s Eatery, and Atria’s.

Tabbara Chocolates

The sweetest gift you can give is from Tabbara Chocolates. These hand-crafted chocolates come in a  seasonal variety – indulge in the Fall/Winter chocolate assortment, Frosty the Snowman snowman-shaped chocolates, or the gingerbread ganache. 

Square Cafe

Formerly located in Regent Square, but now located in East Liberty, Square Cafe will be selling the perfect stocking stuffer – house-made cocoa bombs in a variety of flavors: traditional (full of tiny marshmallows), caramel, peppermint, and cinnamon.

Kingfly Spirits
