Made in U.S. logoAmericans shopping for Christmas gifts this holiday season can still find made-in-America products to put under the tree.

Alliance for American Manufacturing has released its annual Made in America Gift Guide, which highlights at least one product from all 50 states.

Alliance has assembled its list, which can be viewed here, for the second year in a row.

The products range from Rada brand cutlery from Iowa to a Viking Range built in Mississippi.

"There really is a wide variety of gifts available," says Alliance President Scott Paul. "No matter what the profile is of the recipient of your gift, you're going to find something on here that would be very appealing to him or to her."

Other products listed by the Alliance are candles, hand tools, hot sauce, aviator sunglasses, blue jeans, footballs, leather goods, and popcorn.

Manufacturing in the United States has seen better times, Paul says, but Americans are often surprised to learn that some products are still being made, and people are still being employed, in the U.S.

Purchasing at least some of those products obviously helps those companies and stores.

"That in and of itself is a gift," Paul says.

Alliance claims that Americans spending $64 annually on American-made products creates 200,000 jobs in the states.
