I was inspired by the “Made In America Christmas” story that I saw on ABC News last night. It is said that Americans spend about $700 on Christmas each year. If each American spent $64 on gifts manufactured in the USA, we could created 200,000 jobs. That sounds worth getting behind, if you ask me. I’m 18 years young. I don’t intend to change the world, but I intend to try my hardest to do my part to restore the American economy. That’s why I’m doing this.
Today, I went to the mall, and found lots of cute things that I wanted to buy. Tops, jewelry, plates… all cute things, all at an affordable price. But they were all made in China! I realized that I had a lot of trouble finding things that were made in the U.S.A! I figured that other people may be having the same problem. So I decided to start this blog. Every day, I will look for things that are made in America both online and in stores. Then, I’ll post them here. I want to make it easier for Americans to buy American. So please follow me, reblog me, recommend me to friends, and buy American.
Next up is A.S Tees. All of their tees are made in the US. Even the cotton that the tees are woven from is homegrown. They have wholesale information as well, so next time you’re going to order tees for the family reunion, club, or team, why not order from A.S Tees? They have a new Eco-Friendly section on their site, as well. These tees are woven from organic cotton, bamboo fabric, and recycled polyester/cotton blend.
This is perfect for your inner gardener, or friends or family members that have a green thumb. This bench is meant to be used with two Dura-trel Small Planter Boxes or two Large Planter Boxes, which are sold separately. This is yet another gift from Brookstone! It’s $61.99.
Dot Art will always have a special place in my childhood. It’s so fun and easy to use. Promoting creativity in kids is really important, especially since children are bombarded with video games, television, and other technologies nowadays. You should check out the website. I’m sure that a child in your life will really appreciate this.
Story Time Felts is another really good gift for children this holiday season (or any time of the year, honestly). This is a gift that you can play with alongside your child, allowing you to spend time with them. It’s another gift that had an important place in my childhood, so I hope that you’ll order this Made In the USA gift for someone in your life.
Highlights! This is another fun company for children. A subscription would be a gift that a child could enjoy all year long. It’s educational and engaging. Highlights also sells puzzles, games, books, and other educational material. There’s currently a special going on where you can take $10 off any $50 purchase. This offer excludes magazine subscriptions, but as I mentioned before, they sell much more than magazines.
This is a Rada Cutlery set on Amazon.com. Everyone loves getting some nice, sharp knives! It’s made in the USA and only $33.99. It’s got 4.5/5 stars from customer reviews.
Let’s not forget about Etsy! They have some really awesome things on there that you won’t find anywhere else, and most of them are made in the USA. If you’ve never visited Etsy.com, check it out! I know that Tumblr people are amongst some of the coolest, trendiest, most creative people out there, so if you’re on Tumblr, you’ll probably love some of the finds on Etsy.
