Check out this round-up of Pittsburgh care packages from Pittsburgh City Paper.

PG&H has just launched an online store. Just because their storefront Downtown is closed, doesn’t mean you can’t buy gifts from Pittsburgh makers. (Check out our visit to PG&H).

For the mom who is missing Pittsburgh, you can order a candle with notes of smoke and steel. Homesick candles offers both a Pittsburgh candle and a Pennsylvania candle. (These Homesick candles aren’t locally made, but we thought are worth the share.)
