Gift Guide: Made in the USA

This is absolutely one of my favorite posts I've put together in awhile. Over the past 6 months I've really become focused on buying more of everything that's made in the good 'ol US of A. A chance meeting at a friend's neighborhood barbecue this past Summer was the catalyst. I met an amazing American couple who lived in China with their 3 boys. Working in a corporate world, I was fascinated with their description of the culture and tales of BIG city living. (think NYC x 100). They loved their experience and yet they still said they tell everyone to NOT buy anything "made in china". I was completely taken aback by their recommendation due to their fond memories and love of Asian culture. But they saw first hand of how jobs in America are being outsourced for cheaper, faster labor. Their message resonated with me and I continue to think back to that conversation when I research new items I want. I'm no extremist but if I can purchase something made in the USA over something made in China, why wouldn't I? 

I'm hoping for some of you this will open your eyes to being more conscious of purchasing American made. Seeing how I want 2 of everything on this gift list-I don't think it will be a problem buying stateside this holiday season!
