It's that time of year when we're welcoming the blustering leaves, the chill in the air, the chance to wear our warm, fuzzy Huxtable sweaters, and the festiveness of the approaching holidays. Let's get in the spirit, shall we? Editors, cue the beauteous holiday imagery!
More! More! *Holds up conductor's baton*
Editor minions, cue the English choir!
Ahhhh, that's better.
But despite the undisputed gorgeousness of the holidays in Pittsburgh, something we might not welcome is the task of crossing names off our gift lists and feeling like we have to find that perfectly unique gift for our mother, father, child, sister, brother, boss or friend/frienemy.
So I'm here, once again, to help you not only cross a few names off your list, but also to help you find the best ’Burgh-made or ’Burgh-inspired gifts. Some reflect a love for the city and some put a little money in the pockets of some local crafters, artists and non-profits.
I've confirmed that there are ample supplies of each item on the list, or that the artist or crafter is capable and willing to make more, should the need arise.
Make your list. Check it twice. Then check out this year’s Yinzer Gift Guide, whether you’re naughty or nice.
