Made in USA (label)When it comes to Christmas shopping, people are still making a list and checking it twice. OneNewsNow has details for those who prefer to purchase American-made products.

Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) has released its "Made in America" holiday gift guide, an annual publication that's been growing since it began in 2013.

"We started doing it because we wanted to find a way to shine the spotlight on some American makers across the country who are putting things together and making things every day in their communities," says AAM's Elizabeth Brotherton-Bunch. "So everything on the list is American-made, and we tried to include something from every state and the District of Columbia."

On the list, consumers will find everything from clothing to toys to cookware and personal grooming items.

"We tried to include something on the list for everyone on your shopping list," says Brotherton-Bunch. "We really wanted to show the range of things out there still made in America and include a wide variety of price points so that, no matter what your budget is, you'll be able to find something American-made this year."

She adds that it could even help people who moved from their home state have something from back home.
