I need some gifts for my best friend that scream "Pittsburgh!".

I moved to Pittsburgh about 2 years ago from Louisiana, and my best friend and her fiancé are in New Orleans. They have never been here. I am traveling home next month and want to bring some awesome gifts that reflect my new city and/or geographical region. I'm open to just about anything, and cost isn't a huge factor (say, collectively I'd like to spend under $300). Multiple suggestions are ok, since I would like to have a Christmas gift for the couple and a separate birthday gift just for my friend.
They love food (but are pescatarian), wine, cooking, the Saints, dogs, biking, watching movies, and slightly nerdy things like Joss Whedon and Star Trek.
What are some cool things that I could get them that are special to this region? Bonus points if I can easily pack it into a suitcase (though shipping is ok too).
