It is December! So that basically means it's Christmas all month long because the gift giving is NON STOP. But with that also comes gift getting so I’m not really that mad. However, if you find yourself stuck in a rut or don’t know where to shop this holiday season, do not fear because I have got you covered. This is your guide for surviving the holiday with one of a kind gifts that support local businesses right here in Pittsburgh.
Now if you are looking for something trendy and fashionable there are boutiques scattered all throughout parts of the city. Boutique La Passerelle downtown is sure to have something one of a kind for any woman in your life. They have unique pieces from all over the world at a reasonable price. You will always find style and on-trend pieces there. Figleaf boutique right in the heart of South Side is also a great place to find feminine and fun pieces this holiday season. If you want something vintage or maybe even just a little more affordable Highway Vintage Robbery, or Basil official is just the place to go. Both have taken their own idea of vintage and modernized it.
For any none clothing related gifts, there’s definitely still places in Pittsburgh you can shop at. Love, Pittsburgh is a one of a kind shop with all Pittsburgh themed gifts for a PGH lover in your life. They have a wide variety of categories to choose from. They range from candles to art, personal care products and so much more. If you can’t find a gift here, then you should re-evaluate where you are living.
If you have someone special that craves experience just like me, there are plenty of gift ideas to do right here in Pittsburgh. There are numerous Christmas shows, and musicals happening at our local theatres. The Nutcracker at the Benedum Center is always a special go to, as well as shows at Heinz Hall like Elf the musical. If you have a more adventurous type, Ascend Pittsburgh is Pittsburgh’s best rock climbing experience in my opinion. You will be sure to get the adventure of feeling of success with a trip there.
