The previous made-in-America holiday gift guide was so well received that I wrote another article with more American-made ideas.

A recent Morning Consult survey found that 76% of U.S. consumers prefer to buy American-made products over foreign products. So, if you are one of that 76%, I hope you will find this article helpful.

See these companies:

Sometimes we forget about the classic toys that many (like me) likely grew up with. The traditional Wiffle Bat and Wiffle Ball are still made in the USA after all these years. Word has it the Wiffle Ball won’t break windows should it veer off course. The Wiffle Ball, discovered in 1953, was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame in 2017.

The Vermont Bowl Company has American-made wooden bowls of just about every shape and size you could imagine. They have kitchen essentials like wooden plates, Lazy Susans, cutting boards, and personalization laser engraving. And, of course, they offer varieties of maple syrup, which the state of Vermont is famous for. You can also visit the company store in the Wilmington, Vermont, area, which is open seven days a week.

Lamson has been in business since 1837 and features several American-made knives, such as those for carving & slicing, fish, fillet & boning, and paring & trimming. You’ll also find steak knives, Santoku & Nakiri knives, BBQ tools, kitchen tool sets, knife sets, spatulas & turners, choppers & cleavers, chef’s knives, and much more. They even have what they affectionately call ‘Granny tools’ (the ones Grandma used to use). Check the sale page for special discounts.

You don’t have to be a severe environmentalist advocate to appreciate the safety and American-made quality that comes with Green Toys. They offer a wide assortment of toys in categories like Baby & Toddler and Bath & Water play, which include dump trucks, tugboats, fire trucks, submarines, airplanes, wagons, block sets, and tractors. You get the idea.

Check out the family-owned sock company that will replace your socks free of charge if you wear them out. Darn Tough has more types of socks than you could probably imagine, including hiking, running, ski & snowboarding, hunting, work, tactical, and even dress socks.

Vermont Glove doesn’t mess around when it comes to quality. Yes, you’ll pay more for these goat leather, exceptionally high-performing work gloves, mittens, and liners, which have been hand-sewn in Vermont since 1920, but it’s well worth it. Their net-zero factory uses 100% renewable energy to support local community initiatives. Glove care accessories, like leather conditioner and beeswax waterproofing, will allow your gloves to stand the test of time.

This company is based in Ocoee, Florida, not far from where I reside in Orlando, Forida, and offers nativity sets and figures (including angels, wise men, shepherds, and a variety of animals), yard art, yard signs, window décor, and more.

Veteran-owned TFTWood is based in Eureka, Montana, and makes a wide variety of U.S.-made ornaments, cutting boards, butcher blocks, chef cutlery, wooden salad utensils, artisan soaps, salad bowl with servers, wine racks, and wine holders. If you have cats, as we do, you can especially appreciate wood ornaments. These master woodworkers and carpenters also make custom luxury furniture.

Based in Fall Creek, Wisconsin, Anything Dough’s has been a family-owned and operated business for over 40 years. They make hundreds of ornaments themed for boys, girls, sports & hobbies, angels, weddings, pets & animals, superheroes, snowmen, babies, and bears.

Estwing is a well-known brand of hammers, axes, knives, and pry bars. You might have seen them at your local hardware store. The USA-made quality is top-notch.

Nordic Ware makes American bakeware, cookware, kitchenware, microwave, and grillware. Check out their sale section for products with special discounts and take a video tour of their U.S. factory. The website’s handy store locator helps you find the closest store that carries their products.

Who wouldn’t mind some of Chicago’s or New York’s most authentic pizza over the holidays? Enjoy classic pizzas delivered to your door from popular pizza establishments like Giordano’s and Gino’s East. No travel is required. Sign up now and get 10% off your first order.

RedCarpet pizzas come partially baked to preserve that authentic New York and Chicago-style taste.

If you are not thrilled with your order, RedCarpet will happily replace your purchase or refund your money, whichever you prefer.

Consumer spending makes up over two-thirds of the U.S. economy, so it’s vitally important that we spend our money on products made here to keep jobs, profits, and tax revenue in the United States. And not just during the holidays but year-round as well.

Here’s Part 1 of the gift guide.
