Our favorite mementos from the City of Love.
The temperature is dropping and the garlands soon to be
strung.
Even streetlights seem to twinkle a little more this time of year.
The
holiday season is upon us and we're on the hunt for the perfect gifts.
Cross
some off your list with our top picks for Philadelphia-themed souvenirs.
Chocolate Cheesesteak at Mueller Chocolate Company The sandwich that put
Philadelphia on the gut-busting map takes the form of candy at Mueller
Chocolate Company.
Owner Dr.
Chockenstein regularly creates the most unusual
chocolates out there: chocolate-covered whole raw onions and human
organ-shaped chocolates (nothing like reminding someone they're 'on your
mind' than with a chocolate brain).
At seven inches long and with realistic
detail, Mueller's chocolate cheesesteak resembles the real deal—especially
the streak of white chocolate on top standing in for traditional cheese
whiz.
Available at the Reading Terminal Market, a retail store just outside
the city in Rockledge, and online.
Good Night, Philadelphia Everyone remembers the beloved children's
book, Goodnight Moon.
This version Phillifies the classic by taking kids on a
colorful, literary journey to famous Philly sites, including the Liberty Bell,
Reading Terminal Market, the Schuylkill river and the Museum of Art.
Available
at Ali's Wagon and a number of online retailers.
We Heart Philly's LOVE line Souvenirs featuring Philadelphia's famous
LOVE sculpture are plentiful around town, but We Heart Philly's designs make
the symbol fashionable and functional.
Dainty gold and silver earrings and
necklaces, artsy coasters and canvas totes are available online and at two
charming shops, Open House and Verde.
The collection also includes
gifts—like bottle openers, decorative platters, and flasks—that highlight
Philly's diverse neighborhoods, favorite snack (soft pretzel) and landmarks.
Cheesesteak Tees The Philly-themed apparel at Cheesesteaks Tees drip with
sarcasm, humor and nostalgia—sometimes all at once.
It's hard to choose
between throwback team logos and inside jokes like the "Mess with Texas"
design with a scratched out Cowboys star.
Rated 'R' shirts will make
adults giggle, while sweet baby onesies bring home the cute factor.
Art in the Age Spirits A nice bottle of booze is always a fun present,
but this Old City shop's four organic liquor offerings are
one-of-a-kind.
Root is based on a 1700s recipe for an herbal remedy made with
sassafras, sarsaparilla, birch bark and other wild roots and herbs that were
popular in Pennsylvania.
Perfect for wintertime, Snap employs a Pennsylvania
Dutch recipe using hearty blackstrap molasses and fresh ginger.
Tangy
Rhubarb—a favorite flavor of Ben Franklin—incorporates beets, carrots,
lemons, petitgrain, cardamom, and pure cane sugar, while Sage is a take on a
'garden gin' with notes of thyme, rosemary, lavender, and fennel.
