There are so many things about the Keystone State that make it unique. So if you’re looking for a gift for someone from Pittsburgh, Philly, or anywhere in between, this Pennsylvania gift guide has something for everyone. What makes this made in PA gift guide unique is that not only do the gifts have a Pennsylvania theme, they are also made by fellow Pennsylvanians and can all be found on Etsy. Here’s what you need to know about us PA folks to find the perfect gift:
In Pennsylvania, we love our food.
Pierogies are a staple dish in Western PA. Those potato dumplings are so good fried up in browned butter. For the pierogi lover in your life, check out this pierogi on a rope from RegentParkNaturals. It’s actually soap and comes in five different scents!
Now over on the Eastern side of PA, you’ve got cheese steak. Give this card from Frankadelphia to someone who is the steak to your wiz. Because we all know wit wiz is the only way to go. There’s also a pretzel and mustard themed card if you like that snack better.
We talk just a little bit different in PA.
For a taste of Philly speak, check out this tote bag from Parcel Island. That jawn is legit. Oh, you’ve never heard of the word jawn? Basically, it’s an all purpose word that can take the place of any and every noun. (Note: this shop is on vacation until November 19)
Did you know that the state insect is the firefly or our state beverage is milk?
According to State Symbols USA, the firefly became the official state insect of Pennsylvania in 1974. I love these firefly (or is it lightning bug?) earrings from GwydionsGarden. Check out the matching bracelet and necklace that go with them.
Also according to State Symbols USA, milk became the state beverage of PA in 1982. There are many dairy farms in the state, so what better way to add character to your home and show off your PA pride than with a vintage milk bottle? This vintage milk bottle from ReFindMeShop would make the perfect flower vase.
There are plenty of famous towns in Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvanians are proud to live where they do!
Show off your Harrisburg, Reading, or Philadelphia pride with these area code coasters from LuckyMfgCo. They are perfect to set your glasses of Troeg’s Mad Elf on this holiday season. (Note: listing is for a single coaster only, so be sure to order as many as you need!)
