Art in the Age is the epitome of shopping local. Okay, literally only local if you live in Philadelphia, but its good are carefully curated and very unique AND bonus for us boozers, they’ve got a whole cool line of liquor and cool booze-related items! 

We'd love to try their Rhubarb Tea, a summery garden liqeur available onlinehere ($33.99). And if we overdid it, they carry an intriguing Hangover Tonic ($20) described as "warm and woody with hints of ginger, fennel, citrus, and a touch of wintergreen” best combined with tea, juice, soda water or classic cocktails! Is it bad to say I kind of want to get a hangover just to try this? HA!

Now that the holidays are officially upon us, we here at Shoppist are in full gifting mode. Each day this month, we’ll unveil our 25 top gifts to buy in Philly this season. (Trust us: We’ve shopped everywhere to bring you the best of the best.)

The collection of goods comes housed in a super-sturdy Poler Excursion pack (which opens up all the way for roomy, compartmentalized storage) and includes an AITA tee, Stanley camp flask, two enamelware mugs, Scout notebook, woven patch, pen, a Mason shaker and Pok Pok drinking vinegar (which our friends over at Foobooz say is absolutely essential for a good drink). Pitching the tent? That’s up to you.
