Welcome Bags for Pittsburgh

Hi All,

I'm looking to make some welcome bags for my Fiances family who will be coming in from Boston to celebrate our wedding. Any ideas of pittsburgh themed items or other inexpensive items that we can include in the bags?


Re: Welcome Bags for Pittsburgh

  • About half of out guests are OOT so some of the items I'm considering are:
    - Booklet with a Welcome letter, Things to Do/See, Timeline/Schedule for the weekend, map of events, and maybe a section on "Pittsburgese" and the cookie table tradition
    - Eat N Park Smiley Cookie
    - Biscotti from the Enrico Biscotti Company (my favorite in the Strip)
    - Water bottle with custom label
    - Mini bag of popcorn from the Pittsburgh Popcorn Co.
    - Snyders Pittsburgh Pretzels (not sure if you can find those in smaller portioned bags though)
    - Individually wrapped chocolate covered pretzel from Sarris Candies (includes your names and wedding date)
    - Pittsburgh Visitors Guide (big booklet you can get for free online)

    I'm going to have to narrow it down so I stay on budget, but those are come of my ideas. Also, FavorsYouKeep.com has a Pittsburgh gift bag which is cute if you have it in your budget.

  • The Pittsburgh themed items I have in our bags are
    - Mini Heinz Ketchup Bottles (60 cents each)
    - Pittsburgh Penguin reusable grocery bags ($1 each)

    Keep in mind not everything has to be Pittsburgh related - general snacks and drinks will be appreciated as well!

  • Cute ideas, Caitlyn!  I was planning on making one bag for every guest in the hotel.
