There are a few pretty simple rules that comes with the holiday season. Try to start your shopping early, never mention your Aunt Janice’s 7th divorce to her newest boyfriend and always pretend to like the gifts you receive from family members who aren’t really interested in what interests you. Unfortunately, this almost always occurs when you’re told to make a list and you say “I don’t need anything” or something to that effect. Well, none of us “need” most of the stuff we get for Christmas but if you don’t make a Christmas List of desirable items you can’t really complain when the most effort someone makes in getting you a meaningful gift is one of those “Tattooed and bearded employed soldier who likes whiskey, bacon and coffee but is also tactical on the weekend” T-shirts from some bunk Facebook ad; Thanks, Aunt Janice!
So make a list or roll the dice. Each of these (mostly) practical items is the product of a veteran owned business and we think you’d be lucky to find even one of them under the tree.
