It’s beginning to look a lot like the holidays, and it’s a thrill to see Made in America gift guides making the rounds. I have seen at least three in the last few weeks. I would be remiss if I did not highlight a list of gift ideas that are made in North Carolina. Take a look at the list below and become inspired. Maybe you can find a gift for everyone on your “Nice” list this year. 

Clothing and Accessories

Outdoor Activities


Food and Beverage

Toys and Hobbies

We make so many amazing things in North Carolina that it would be easy for me to keep going and going and turn this into one of those old Sears Wish Books (some of you may remember those!). I hope you’ve been inspired by some of the items on this list. The key point is that we still make things – many, many things – in this state and nation, and it is an honor and delight for me to highlight these products. 

Sending best holiday wishes to you and yours. 

PS if you are shipping anything and use bubble wrap, it’s another product made in NC. I could make another long list of packaging made in the state, but we’ll save that for another time.

Happy Holidays!
