Founded in 1984 by Jan Jones, Basket of Pittsburgh (or, as our friends call us, BOP!) has evolved over the years into the coolest destination for Pittsburgh-themed gifts. Along the way, our retail shop and warehouse expanded to 5,000 sq. feet; our products multiplied to over 250 gift ideas and our staff grew to 10 go-getters to keep up!
We also had our share of gifts during this time. In May of 2005, BOP was named by Gift Basket Review Magazine as one of the top 10 basket businesses in the country. Even before the champagne ran out, in June of 2006, we were appointed the official provider of Gift Baskets to Major League Baseball for the 2006 All-Star Game!
In January of 2011, BOP got a shot of adrenaline when Kerri Scripko, a fun-loving, energetic MBA from the University of Pittsburgh, joined the team. Kerri is all set to redefine the idea of Pittsburgh-themed gifts with exclusive gift cards and prized local wines. After all, BOP is an acronym not just for the ‘Basket of Pittsburgh’ but also for the ‘Best of Pittsburgh’!
We love to help you pick that perfect gift! If you can’t find what you need, no worries. We’ll custom-design a gift and even add a personalized ribbon for you!
