By PA, For PA
Some of our favorite gifts that celebrate our home state, made by those who live here too!
Three Potato Four (Media, PA)
Long gone are the $2.99 Hoagiefest days, but you can still squeeze a 10 into these coin purses and grab yourself a Philly staple on your lunch break. And if hoagies aren’t your thing for some reason, Three Potato Four’s vintage coin purses come in a variety of other patterns that we love just as much!
Keystone Steel Co. (Pittsburgh, PA)
Mud and Maker (Pottsville, PA)
Hello Doodle (Philadelphia, PA)
It’s never too early to teach the A-Zs of Philly to your kids (or your out-of-town relatives, for that matter). Run, don’t walk, to get Hello Doodle’s adorable Philly artwork for your nursery – just don’t be surprised when your kid’s first word is “jawn.”
Meadowbrook Lane (West Chester, PA native)
If you’re a fan (or phan) of all things Philly sports, you’ll fall in love with Meadowbrook Lane’s collection of Eagles and Phillies items. And in the meantime, be kind to the Birds and Phils fans in your life, because let’s be honest – we’re still going to keep watching even after all the championship losses. Said? SAID.
KC Essentials (Kennett Square, PA)
Ok, so these aren’t *totally* about Pennsylvania. But the Jersey Shore is basically an extension of Southeast PA during the summer, so it still counts…right?
Choose your favorite town’s scent and start dreaming of those summer days with these beach-themed candles from KC Essentials! Options include Ocean City, Avalon, Sea Isle, Stone Harbor, and Cape May; and Dewey, Bethany, Margate, and Rehoboth for our friends who like to spend their summers a little farther south.
