Black Friday Christmas shopping frenzyWant to have a "Made in America" Christmas? Here's how.

The Alliance for American Manufacturing has an annual publication that highlights at least one manufacturer in every state, the idea being to encourage consumers to purchase U.S.-made gifts.

"Here in the U.S. we still produce a lot of great consumer goods – and not only is there a lot of variety, but one thing that makes these products stand out is the quality, the durability, and the craftsmanship," says Jesus Espinoza, press secretary at the Alliance for American Manufacturing.

He adds that consumers also make an investment in U.S. businesses and communities when they purchase items made in America.

"When you support companies that manufacture here in the U.S. you're basically supporting the jobs that the workers have; and as a result, by helping sustain and create jobs in manufacturing here in the U.S., those benefits spill over into the surrounding community," he explains.

"When you have a good-paying manufacturing job, you're going to have income to be able to buy a house, buy a car, support your local restaurant, your local organizations and churches and whatnot."

This year's Made in America Gift Guide features something for everyone, from clothing to food and toys for children. Pet items are also included.
