  4. Great list of items. Something for everyone but only 199 people have pinned it and 71 people have shared it on FB? There should be millions of outraged Americans “likeing” and sharing this all over the place! EACH purchase matters. And I like the idea of getting something unique or handcrafted as opposed to the same stuff everyone else is getting.

  5. Great ideas! I need lots of ideas. I never know what to get other people. I love the thought of getting USA made gifts too. Thanks!
