Jawnaments Is Making Perfectly Philly Christmas Ornaments Out of Beloved Local Brands, Icons
Living in Philadelphia will never result in a flawless existence, but we must say that Promo Marketing’s home city is a pretty impressive place to call home. One enthusiastic resident is banking on that history and a treasured Philly slang term to give us Jawnaments, and we now have no doubt that Philadelphians’ Christmas trees are going to be the best in the world this year. You have a problem with that?

Local college business instructor "Susan M." has made good on lessons to her students through this brainchild, coming up with 14 decorations all priced at $15. For anyone who bleeds Philly through and through, Jawnaments deserves some serious love and has us engaging in a bit of creative envy over their novelty and spot-on representation of the City of Brotherly Love.
Making the items in South Philly, which has given us its fare share of standout locations and traditions, Susan M. has made us abandon our allegiance to impartiality when discussing promotional products, as each good gave us a smile and bred in us suggestions for further creations. Even someone with cursory knowledge of Philadelphia stands to find one product that accurately reflects what it’s like to inhabitant our environs.
Since food and drink dominate many holiday conversations and often serve as the centerpieces for gatherings, it’s not shocking that our eyes became fixated on the Wawa coffee cup, Italian hoagie, Tastykake, Peanut Chew, Arctic Splash, soft pretzel and Pabst Blue Ribbon ornaments. While those will bring comfort and joy to Philly occupants’ evergreen and artificial trees, the fun doesn’t stop there, as there are other on-brand Jawnaments to have, including a No Parking sign sure to hit home among residents who know just how difficult it can be to find a spot in Philly. There's also a Parking Authority dangler sure to bring a chuckle considering the agency’s less-than-stellar reputation among local motorists, and a Gritty ornament that we argue can give other likenesses of the Philadelphia Flyers’ mascot a run for their money.

Susan M., whoever you may be, thank you for being so eager to help people “show some hardcore, local love” for their neighborhoods and city. The literal air quality in Philadelphia isn’t too commendable, but Jawnaments strike us as breaths of fresh air and could very well have us making a purchase—or at least making us smile when we wash down our soft pretzels with an Arctic Splash.
