How do you know where to go when you want American-made Christmas gifts to put under the Christmas tree this year? Answer: The USA Shop on www.howtobuyamerican.com!
You can make sure American-made will light the way with the popular Stinger Elite X1-LED flashlight. This flashlight is capable of generating 165 lumens of adjustably focused light and shooting a beam of light over 200 feet. It normally retails online for between $70.00 and $89.99, but you can get them at the USA Shop for just $49.95. State Troopers, military personnel, and firefighters rely on them every day, so you can be sure that you can too.
Summer is long gone, so it might be a nice surprise gift to put a pair of Reno Navarro sunglasses under the tree. That special someone on your Christmas list will know you put forth a special effort to get them a quality pair of sunglasses. Reno Navarro sunglasses have true optical-quality HD lenses, are UV 400 rated, and come in a hard shell leather case with a micro satin cloth and a micro satin bag, American-made in Reno, Nevada, all for just $59.95.
For the outdoorsman on your list, check out the new Striker Rescue knives which are engraved with 'Buy American' right on the handle. Striker Rescue knives (union-made in Oregon) were originally produced for police, military, and emergency personnel, and have power-assisted tantalum blades that comes out in 1/10 of a second. They're cut from one piece of high density carbon steel and then carbon coated. On one side is a seat belt cutter made of M360 steel used for surgical instruments. On the bottom is a diamond hammer to shatter glass. And all of this comes with a deluxe gift case with the Striker Logo. Just $49.95.
A great stocking stuffer idea might be a tube of American-made Davids toothpaste. Truly American-made toothpaste is hard to find, and even when you do, most of the ingredients are from places like China and India. I don't know about you, but I don't want any Chinese-made ingredients in my mouth that can enter my bloodstream while I'm brushing. I use Davids premium natural toothpaste where 98 percent of the ingredients are of USA origin (2% from Japan). Right now you can get 10% off your order using the discount code "rogersaysdavids" at checkout through the end of the year.
If those on your Christmas list use insoles, don't buy them the Chinese-made Dr. Scholl's! Buy them ENER-GEL insoles instead, which are made right here in America. When you do, you'll be helping to keep a family-owned, American-owned domestic producer stay in business, and many American jobs that go along with it (ENER-GEL got canned by Walmart after 18 years). You can find ENER-GEL insoles in the USA Shop for just $9.95 plus $3.00 shipping. Whether it's for comfort or a tough day on the job, ENER-GEL has an insole to fit your activity.
If you're looking for quality cookware items and accessories with a lifetime guarantee, look no further than Jacob Bromwell. Jacob Bromwell is one of the few patriotic companies you will find that has never outsourced production to low-wage labor countries to reduce costs because they have faith in the creativity and productivity of American workers. And they've been producing here since 1819! And right now you can get a full 25% off your order when you visit http://rogersaysJB.com and type in the discount code BUYAMERICAN25 at checkout.
When we buy American-made Christmas gifts, we aren't just giving a gift to that special someone on our Christmas list. We are also giving an American worker the gift of continued employment so they can enjoy Christmas too and have money to spend on presents for their loved ones.
Any economist will tell you that over two-thirds of all economic activity in America is based on consumer spending. That's how we keep our economy going. When we shop, we're not just spending money in America - we're investing in America, too, but only if we patronize American-made products.
