Starbucks gift cards are the new ugly Christmas sweater. Resist the temptation to go the easy route this holiday season, and get your relatives a unique gift they will actually enjoy: wickedly clever T-shirts from East Carson Street’s CommonWealth Press.

Shirts in stock include cover boy Sidney Crosby re-imagined as Sid Vicious from the Sex Pistols, an ode to the Pittsburgh parking chair and a Led Zeppelin-inspired “Stairway to Seven” shirt. There’s even a creed against the most-hated plague: the dreaded stink bug—not to mention a human billboard for the favorite jagoff in your life.

Skip the generic Steelers merch this shopping season because these are the perfect digs for out-of-state or overseas relatives who want to represent the real character of their hometown.

Stop by the CommonWealth Press shop at 1931 E. Carson St., or order online at compressmerch.com.
