Christmas Gifts Made in USA 2017

Christmas Gifts Made in USA 2017

Happy Holidays. It is that time again. It is time to go shopping for Christmas presents. And what better way to say you care than by buying gifts made in the USA. I have chosen some different gifts this year. Once you finished your shopping, celebrate your accomplishment with Domaine Carneros Sparkling wine (see the last gift).

First off, from the Vermont Teddy Bear Company, Santa and Mrs Claus Set.

Next from the Guideboat Company, who just opened another store at the Stanford Shopping Center is a Jacquard knit J’Adore Half Zip Jacket

Next from Robeworks, all robes made in the USA, comes  the Luxury Hooded Robe LJ 500

If you are looking for more than clothing, look at the satchel from Merci Fortune called the Catherine Satchel Cerise Leather. All bags are made with Horween leather and handcrafted in New York City.


If you want to keep warm look at this fleece blanket made by the American Blanket Company. They advertise themselves as the best blanket in America. They are lifetime guaranteed and all are made in Fall River, Massachusetts.

The Next item is from an old favorite of mine: Bills Khakis. This one is called the Donegal Sweater.

To keep your hands warm, there are these nice Elkskin mittens, found on the website Leather Gloves Online. Not all are gloves are US made on this website.

To keep your feet warm, look at this Slipper from Sundance Leather. com. made in Colorado. Colorado Colorado cuff slippers


Looking for accessories made in the USA? Well, Allen Edmonds have a few Tie Pins and cufflinks.

The next is a Christmas season must. It is the ugly Christmas sweater. This one is from The priniting is all done in the USA, but not all of their apparel is made here, it is difficult to decipher where they are from.

Teespring Ugly Christmas Sweater

At wintertime, we can’t spend our whole time snuggled up under covers, in front of a roaring fire with a cup of cocoa, sometimes we have to go out there and exercise. Because the daylight hours in the winter are shorter, it means that we have to spend more of our time in the dark. And if you want to exercise safely, wearing reflective wear will make your work-out safer. First, from Illuminite, comes a reflective jacket in a royal blue color.

Illuminite Womens Royal Blue jacket – reflective

Continuing with the night exercise wear comes the reflective shorts from Illuminte.

Another great idea for Christmas is jewelry. One company that makes all there jewelry is Hawaii is Na Hoku.

During the holiday season, there are plenty of parties and get-togethers, so sometimes one has to get gussied up. Here is an example from Nordstroms’.

Nordstroms: Dress The Population Emery scoop back reversible sequin body con dress

Also From Nordstroms’ is a Leather Bomber jacket made by long-time US clothing maker, Schott.

Thinking of a gift that is not clothing, how about this briefcase from Frank Clegg.

Frank Clegg chestnut tumbled grain leather English briefcase

Still needing to stay warm, see this warm coat from Sofia Cashmere Wool Blend Coat from Nordstroms.


A great idea for Christmas are watches. Shinola watches are made in Detroit, Michigan.

The Vermont Teddy Bear Company has such cute ideas that is why they are appearing for a second time.

Allen Edmonds Newest Golf Shoes

Allen Edmonds has been the only maker of U.S. made golf shoes for the past 5-10 years. Their shoes are of high quality and definitely upper end. They have partnered with Jack Nicklaus and have come up with two new models of golf shoes made in the USA.

Jack Nicklaus Anaconda golf shoes by Allen Edmonds

Jack Nicklaus Anaconda golf shoes by Allen Edmonds (also available as all brown)


  • Proudly made in the USA at our Port Washington, Wisconsin factory

In the 1880s, Anaconda, Montana was synonymous with the splendor and riches that resulted from the copper ore processed there. In the 1980s, the area was a Superfund site, toxic and uninhabitable. But by the 1990s, Mr. Nicklaus was able to turn the “Old Works” into a new, world-class golf course that incorporates remnants of the copper smelter, like the flue and oven, into his design. In honor of this transformation, the Anaconda has the broguing of a traditional golf shoe but also the modern touches of athletic footwear for a look and feel that’s classic and contemporary.

Opened in 1987, the Renegade Course was the first of the six Jack Nicklaus Signature Courses at Desert Mountain and was once described by Golf Magazine as “the most versatile course in the world.” In keeping with versatility, the new Renegade Jack Nicklaus golf shoe has evolved to a more athletic style and sole for those who enjoy comfort and performance on and off the course.

The Renegade shoes also come in black

Don’t forget to check out their other great golf shoes like this Weybridge model which comes in black, tan and blue:

The black grain Weybridge shoes are also great looking. And don’t forget that Allen Edmonds is one of the best dress shoe manufacturer in the United States. Check out their link at: Allen Edmonds.





Men’s Clearance -Allen Edmonds

Men’s Clearance – Men’s Shoes | Allen Edmonds.

Allen Edmonds is one of the few men’s dress shoe manufacturers that still makes their shoes in the USA. The company was founded in 1922, and even though CEO, Paul Grangaard had sold the company in November, 2013 to Brentwood Associates (Brentwood Associates describes itself as a consumer-focused private equity firm with a 30-year history of investing in middle-market growth companies. Specialty retail is one of its areas of interest), Alan Edmonds has continued its commitment to make shoes in the USA (although, they do own a shoe factory in the Dominican Republic as well, so check the label).

One of the nice things about being on the mailing list is being the first to see the new selections, their latest sales and their clearance sales. The bad thing is that you have another e-mail to delete if you are not in the mood to buy. Here are a couple of clearance items that are great buys:

Woodstock dress loafers 50% off original price

Woodstock dress loafers 50% off original price

Cut Bank belt

Cut Bank belt 70% off

Allen Edmonds makes great dress shoes and the only maker of golf shoes made in USA, but they also carry a decent selection of made in USA dress shirts and a fantastic selection of Made in USA dress belts. Buy American.



Cyber Monday – Made in USA

Cyber Monday, December 1st, 2014 is fast approaching. And what better way to show that you are interested in keeping Americans employed and adding new American jobs than by purchasing U.S. made goods.

Cyber Monday is a way to purchase items on-line and on Cyber Monday many of these companies are ready to give you some deals. So we will take a look at a few places that make things in the USA for Cyber Monday.

With regards to the very first item, what better way to show that you support buying American and that you do NOT support our greatest competitor and the recipient of over 14 million of our American jobs, which would be China. (China has passed the U.S. as #1 manufacturer in the world a couple of years ago and is expected to pass the U.S. as the number one economy in the world in the next two years). Show you hometown spirit by purchasing this T shirt from All American Clothing.

Next is this very stylish dress by the Mius collection. Mius is an on-line boutique that brings together several different American fashion designers.

Continuing on fashion for women is this heavyweight full zip hoodie by American Giant. American Giant has done very well since being mentioned by Diane Sawyer and David Muir segments called ABC News: Made in America.

And since we are looking at ladies outerwear, how about this brown plaid haunting jack from the Guideboat Company. Guideboat in not exclusively American, but it is all high quality and eclectic. Based in Mill Valley, California.

Women's Hacking Jacket by Guideboat Co.

One more apparel item for the women. Undergarments for women, made in the USA, are difficult to find (the same goes for men’s undergarments), but there is one company which up until recently made only men’s apparel – it is Flint and Tinder.

Cyber Monday is not just about the women. There is just as much available for men. We shall start with a lambswool shawl cardigan sweatshirt from Ball and Buck. Ball and Buck started off with mainly hunting gear and apparel and has slowly expanded into nice comfortable clothing as well as dress shirts and shoes.

Next is a very nice dress loafer offered by dress shoe maker, Allen Edmonds. Allen Edmonds is offering a nice sale for Cyber Monday (like many of the other places listed here). Allen Edmonds has a fabulous selection of dress belts, dress shirts, dress pants as well as casual and golf shoes. Allen Edmonds is no longer 100% American made anymore as they do own their own shoe factory in the Dominican Republic, so read the label before you order.

Bills Khakis is one of my favorite websites in finding any sorts of men’s apparel. They have numerous sweatshirts, casual shirts, collared shirts, coats, pants, etc,etc. But for the cool weather a nice rugby shirt should keep you warm without getting to warm.

And finally, we have an accessory from All American Buckles who makes all their buckles here in the USA. The have a great assortment of buckles please visit their website at

Men’s Clothing | Allen Edmonds. Allen Edmonds has some new additions for their new Spring clothing line-up. Dress shirts, sportscoats, ties, leather coats, t-shirts, jeans and socks.

If you are on the e-mail list, sometimes they have great sales as well. Of course, Allen Edmonds makes great dress shoes. They are the only maker of golf shoes made in the USA (but not the Jack Nicklaus line).
