(Top 20 Gifts Holiday Gift Guide Made by Americans, cont’d)

6. Inspired Wall Decor…


I love this wall decor, God is Good, because it’s fun, retro-looking, and made in the USA. It’s also a daily reminder of God. We should be thinking of Him and how to live by His words every day… Plus, it’s the perfect gift for Christmas!

Top 20 Gifts Holiday Gift Guide, Made by Americans

Well, I know what is on my Wish List this Christmas! Although, living in Alaska, I don’t always get what I want due to the over-the-top, outlandish, unusually-high, extraneous shipping and handling costs we are so prone to. One would think we are in an entirely different country altogether. Recently I attempted to purchase some made in the USA pencils for $14.95 and the shipping was $19.00. Yelp!

Anyways, most of you that order from us are located in the contiguous/continental United States…

Ok, on to my Wish List…

Here are the first 5 of the top 20 things I want (either for me or my family), all made in the USA!

For the

Chocolate Lovers…

1. The Chocolate Chambery Reproduction Painting by the Artists Guild of America, found at Bellacore. Made in the USA.

2. Frango Mints – originated from Seattle, my old stomping grounds! Mmmm to have one melting on my palette right now… These were a very special treat my father would buy for me on the weekend. We’d take the Metro 16 to downtown and go to Frederick & Nelson’s for this mouthwatering delight. Seriously, in my book: the best chocolate mints in the world!

For the

Coffee Lovers…

3. Raven’s Brew Coffee. Roasted here the AK, btw. More specifically, their Wicked Wolf blend (also available in Certified Organic blend)!

Hmm it says on their website of this blend,”Superlative after-meal coffee with awesome applications as accompaniment to chocolate desserts!” Do I see a pattern going on here?Aside from my usual Starbucks Pike Place blend, this is my second choice for morning joy.

Not into this scary looking coffee (even though it tastes like Heaven)? Perhaps you’d be more inclined to try one of their other Alaskan roasted blends.

For the future sports enthusiast…

4. Blankets by Teamees – they should come out with adult sizes as well? For now, there are three size options: Pee Wee, Junior Varsity, and Varsity. Don’t think he’ll be a football fan?  The basketball, baseball, or soccer blanket.

For the new mom & baby

These are absolutely stunning & custom made in the USA.

5. Sterling silver bracelets.

Holiday or Formal Outfits Made in USA

This photo was taken Easter 2010. How lovely are the boys’ knicker sets? They are made in California by Just Darling. The girls’ dresses are custom made by Teeny Bunny. When I first happened upon the dress the ribbon was originally light pink. Then I asked the designer to make it black to match the boys’ outfits and voila! That’s what I love about made-to-order!

Shopping online at Starlooks Boutique {4 Kids & Babes} is made easy because it’s secure and you don’t have to wait in any lines or fight the crowds. It’s finding the right coordinating outfits that may be tough. If you have more than a couple of kids, it can be downright awful – trying to maintain a balancing act of Mommy, I need this, I want this, I’m tired, I’m hungry, etc., etc.

Easter 2009 the boys also sported this Just Darling knicker’s outfit. The girls’ dresses were made by PeanutButter Princess. It looks like she may be on hiatus though – but who could blame her with three children?


If you’d like to support American-made and avoid the traffic and crowds, why not stop by Starlooks Boutique today – perhaps the perfect outfit or piece of jewelry is waiting for you?
