Phantastic Giphts for Philly-philes in Your Liphe

Did you get all that? See, if you live in Philly like I do, you have to replace all 'f's with 'ph's. It's, like, a local law or something. Have I got a great gift list for you--one dedicated to the Phillyphile we each know and love. Ready?

AHierloom's Pennsylvania Cheese Board, $40. Notice the heart by Philly, where it should be.

Tony Luke's Frozen Cheesesteaks, $27.95 for 10. If you're not local and can't check out the fresh flavor of Oregon Ave., check out your grocer's freezer, also available online.

Philadelphia Wine Tote by Map Tote, $13. This city has some unparalled BYOBs. This tote highlights the neighborhoods that support this Philly restaurant custom.

Art in the Mechanical Age's Root Liquor, $36. Imagine alcohol had never been taken out of root beer. Well, stop imagining because now you can sample it yourself. Old City's own Art in the Mechanical Age revived this blend and it's popular throughout the area.

Walter Isaacson's Benjamin Franklin: An American Life, $13. This man not only invented pretty much everything (I'm still convinced he had the idea for Facebook long before Zuckerberg did...), he also shaped the nation and certainly this city. When you're next in Philly, up your game and leave a Franklin on his grave instead of the usual pennies.

Garces Restaurant Group Gift Card, price varies. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Philly has some great restaurants and Jose Garces's places are leading the pack. Personal fave: Chifa at 7th and Chestnut.

Bruce Springsteen's "The Promise: The Darkness on the Edge of Town Story (3 CD/3 DVD), $72. Bruce and the working class tradition of Philly are a combination made in rock-and-roll heaven.

Tjsebald's Skyline at Night Onsie, $10. Because you've got to start your kids off right...

Would wouldn't enjoy a touch of Philly waiting for them under the Christmas tree?!


  1. Love this list, Ashley! I'm a huge fan of Philly and these all hit home!

  2. Ohhh, cheeze stake, making me hungry!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
