Patriotic Presents: Made in America Gifts for Guys

Hey, we all know there are plenty of popular products that are made outside of the United States. Heck, a lot of favorite gifts this year will be at least partially manufactured in other countries.

While you certainly don’t need to rush to your gift stash and toss out anything that isn’t stamped with the red, white, and blue, it’s a pretty worthwhile endeavor to fill out your gift list this year with some awesome American-made products. Generally speaking, purchasing American-made products is better for the environment (shorter shipping journey), better for workers (fairer wages), and often just plain better-made (Americans are, by and large, a very demanding people). So. if you’re looking to go above and beyond this holiday season, take a quick look at these great gift ideas, all of which are — you guessed it — made in America.
