The Great American Gift

Gotta love Country Living Magazine...always finding some neat things to share with us. The theme I'm enjoying this month is American-made gifts. CLM laid out some great companies, and I've narrowed down four of my favorites to share with you!

These Maple Honey Caramels from Sweet Revolution look mouthwatering, to say the least. According to their website, this San Franciscan company is the only one in the nation to make certified organic salted caramels--using only maple, dairy, honey, sea salt, and vanilla bean.

These neat products from Duluth Pack made me want to pick up and go camping right away. The authentic Minnesotan company supplies anything you might need from kayaks to canoe paddles. But if the prospect of braving the chilly Fall weather seems a bit daunting, you can always bring the American wilderness to you with one of their book bags or purses.

Looking for some homegrown, rustic, hearty goodness? Search no further than Nitty Gritty Grain Co., a small family farm in Vermont (apparently the current grower is a 7th generation farmer!). How good do cornbread pancakes sound?

The last company, West Third Brand, may just get the award for neatest website. But their products look amazing too. I normally find giving candles as gifts to be a bit cliche, but these pieces from the Palm Springs company are artisan and beautifully crafted. The fragrances will practically waft through your computer screen.
