Philly Food Gift Ideas

Trying to think of some Philly-centric gift ideas for the holidays. Are there any places that overnight foods? I can't imagine a cheesesteak would be any good shipped but are there any places that do it? hoagies?

  1. The Pennsylvania General Store does some nice baskets. We've used them before and have been very pleased...

    Also DiBruno Brothers does some nice ones as well, although not as Philly-specific as you might like.

    1. Taste of Philadelphia does baskets. I think Tastykake also ships now. And per their website, amazing Italian bakery Isgro's ships too:

      Thank you.

      1. For a birthday gift this year, my son got a soft pretzel making kit from the Philadelphia Pretzel Company (I think that was the name). It was great fun--came with sprinkle on toppings and a bottle of yellow mustard. It would be easy to ship.

        1. Jersey related, but there's a lot of overlap between Jersey and Philly foods...

          1. Thanks for the suggestions...I may try my hand at making my own assortment of Philly goodies!
