It’s the final weekend to get gifts for your loved ones before the Christmas holiday and I am sure if you don’t have a gift yet that you are still on the hunt for the perfect gift. Here are some local ideas that make great gifts, and you get to support a family-owned business in the process!
Support Local Farms
A local market that is family-owned located in Upper St Clair and their farm is in Mercer PA. A beautiful hand-crafted wreath might make the perfect gift for someone. Located at 1520 Bower Hill Rd, Pittsburgh, PA 15241.
The SpringHouse Country Market and Restaurant
This family-owned market and farm has tons of goodies to gift! Think pies, cakes, cupcakes, cookies! The list goes on and on and their chocolate milk is the best around! Get lunch while you are there or take some other goodies home for yourself. Located at 1531 PA-136, Washington, PA 15301

Swopes Berries & Bees.
A cute bee and honey farm out in Washington County, PA. They sell honey, naturally, but also lots of other cute gifts like soap and lip balm and even have already packaged gifts boxes.
Spa & Wellness Gifts
We have all had a year (or two) and this is a great gift to help your loved ones have some healing and relaxation. Located at Towne Center, Scott, 2101 Greentree Rd suite a-114, Pittsburgh, PA 15220 or 228 S Highland Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15206.
Great gift to get someone started on their goals before the New Year or even just to meditate and take some stress off after the holidays at their location in Shadyside or online. Located at 730 Copeland St, Pittsburgh, PA 15232.
There are tons of family-owned local spas, yoga and wellness centers in the area and they would all make the perfect gift!
Specialty Stores & Boutiques

Ensemble on Fifth.
Ensemble on Fifth is a retail collective in downtown Pittsburgh with boutique and small business owners to choose from. Located at 230 Fifth Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15222.
Cute boutiques that carry locally sourced products like Country Chic Sister in Carnegie and Consignment Cottage in Moon Township would be good places to look for a gift as well!
A simple, yet great gift is a gift card to a local restaurant or shop! Some of my personal favorites Ten Toes Shoes, love, Pittsburgh, DeBlasios Italian Restaurant, Osoko Sushi and Chinese, Totopo Mexican Kitchen and Bar, the list goes on!
