Buy Local: Fantastic Gifts Made in the USA

Buy Local: Fantastic Gifts Made in the USA

Supporting local creators is a wonderful way to find perfect gifts for the whole family that are made in the USA.

I’m a big supporter of the Buy Local movement for different reasons. The first one is because it helps protect much-needed jobs and traditional industries in our communities. The second has to do with the carbon and ethical footprint of my consumption habits; I personally don’t like to think that my gifts have traveled miles to get under my tree, or that have been made by workers who aren’t compensated fairly. On top of that, buying Made in USA isn’t necessarily more expensive. This guide features excellent gifts made in USA that fit all budgets. So be most welcome to take a tour around!

1. Badger Sore Muscle Soothing Gift Set ($29.99): The perfect gift for anyone on your nice list who needs a little bit of soothing. This all-natural and organic kit includes some of our favorites to relieve sore muscles and help unwind after a barre class, gardening, or simply a long day in front of a computer. The Ginger Deep Tissue Massage Oil is a warming blend rich in antioxidants. Using cayenne pepper, arnica, lemongrass and a savvy mix of softening oils, it glides easily over the surface of the skin for a quick yet deep massage. The sore muscle rub is a portable remedy for when you’re feeling a bit stiff–and the cayenne and ginger just smell delicious! The sore joint rub is an extra strong formula for an invigorating rub that works very well to help un-stiffen after a particularly cold day. And because the folks at Badger are good like that (let’s not forget they are an accredited B Corp), they are throwing in an extra ginger and lemon lip balm stick for a perfect pout during the holidays and beyond. {This is a 100% natural and organic product certified by the USDA.
