Posted by IndustryNet on Monday, November 20, 2017

The holiday season is the perfect opportunity to find intriguing American-made products.

IndustryNet has gathered information from the more than 400,000 U.S. manufacturers and suppliers in its database and assembled a holiday guide of unique American-made specialties for shoppers and corporate gifting.

From sweet treats to fashion-forward accessories to fun and exciting toys, explore the following gifts and supplies produced within America's borders by these exceptional companies.
