Alas, as Charlie Brown and the gang would say “Christmas Time Is Here…”; that’s right – we are now currently in the midst of the holiday season here and that means lists, lists, and more lists for those that you have to shop for during this time of year.

We get it – there are those that already have everything they could possibly own, and then there are those that are beyond impossible to buy for (cough, cough – hi there, dad). So to make it easier on you this holiday season, why not give your proud Pittsburgh parents something to make them even more proud – a Pittsburgh based gift.

Below, you will find something for all of those on your list and maybe even a little something extra for yourself.

Let’s face it – Pittsburgh is a pretty rad city. And when you’re from here, you can’t be prouder of the city including the sports teams, food, museums; the list goes on and on. Why not wear that with pride with a Made in PGH Holiday Box set featuring Hemp-Based hats, t-shirts and more!

Nothing quite screams Pittsburgh like a Primanti Bros sandwich, but as the store won’t be open on Christmas, why not already reserve your one in line? Hopefully to cure those “Wednesday Scaries” as you head back into the office on Wednesday.

For the Culture Freak – Carnegie Museum Membership; Starting at $50.00

Not only is Pittsburgh a vast sports town, but the number of public museums in town is staggering. Why not share the love of art with a Carnegie Museums membership? With a yearly subscription to the four museums (Carnegie Museum of Art, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Carnegie Science Center and The Andy Warhol Museum), you are surely not to go bored while visiting these museums on your days off.
