That’s right, I was born during National Pizza Month (October). Well, technically I was born in the month that would years later be designated National Pizza Month, but it’s exciting nonetheless. My birthday is really just an excuse for friends and family members to practice their Googling skills as they scour the Internet in search of the most obscure pizza-related gifts. This year’s crop of slice merchandise sets a new standard of excellence.
First the cards:
This next card from The Godfather reminds me of a photo I took of his refrigerator when I visited him in San Francisco for a pizza safari last February.
Speaking of The Godfather, he always wins the award for most incredible theme gifts. This year’s batch included the Pizza USB Thumb Drive, Pizza Pouch and the show-stopping School Bus Tire Photo-Stamped Measuring Tape (perfect for taking slice stats). There are no words.
While The Godfather was searching for amazing pizza gifts, others were creating their own. Just check out these incredible logo-emblazoned SPT mugs from my friend Renee. She apparently photographed her SPT shirt and cleaned up the image before sending it to the mug company. Absolutely amazing, thank you Renee!
There was a bit of a theme this year with SPT promo items (none of which will be available for sale anytime soon) and this next one is a doozey. My pal Rachel (her new book came out yesterday!!!) has taken many a pizza tour and joined me on the San Francisco pizza safari, so she knows how important it is to walk in between slices. I hereby present to you my new Custom SPT Pizza Sneakers. Note the basil-sauce-cheese color scheme. Thanks Rachel!
This was a truly incredible batch and I thank all the companies whose products are now a part of my collection. Be sure to check them out for your pizza-obsessed friend.
