Gift Guide: For the Home

Holiday shopping (and gift guide) season seem to be in full swing now. I am personally (way) behind in my own shopping, but I think I'll be keeping things pretty laid-back on the gift-giving front this year. This week, I'm sharing some gifts that would be great for the home, or for a homebody - but they'd also work well as hostess gifts, too!

While these businesses are all Pittsburgh-based, some of the gifts are Pittsburgh-themed while the rest are more generally gift-able.

Father’s Day Gift Guide

I'm still in shock that it's June, and that Father's Day is only a few weeks away. I have definitely not bought my Dad a gift yet, so finding the gifts for this post was actually really useful to me! Maybe I'll end up getting my Dad something from this list (he reads these, so surprise, Dad! You can leave me a comment with your favorite one!).

Graduation Gift Guide

I can't believe it's been a year since my own grad school graduation! It somehow both feels like yesterday and years and years ago. It seems like this year graduations are looking a little more normal than mine, which was completely virtual - I've heard from friends and colleagues that in-person celebrations are returning (with masks and limited numbers, of course!).
