Buying products made in the USA seems almost impossible. It’s basically impossible to find made in the USA products at the local stores. There are many people who feel it’s imperative to buy products that were made in the USA for a number of reasons including economic, social and ethical reasons.
I even know many people who stress over their own children’s holiday and birthday presents because they know that beneath the gift wrap that was made in China, along with the card that was printed in China, will be a gift that was also, made in China.
Perhaps you don’t care where your products are made, I’m sure that you will be shopping for people who put a great deal of importance on where products that they use have been manufactured. When buying gifts for these people and their children, it’s very respectful to take their desires into consideration. Even if you don’t feel the same way or you make different choices for your family, respecting what is important to other people goes a long way in establishing wonderful relationships that will last a lifetime. For example, when a friend of mine was going through a difficult time that warranted me delivering some food to her, I took into consideration that she had mentioned she was a vegetarian in passing. I am not a vegetarian, but I valued her decision. The very simple act of choosing vegetarian products and going slightly out of my way for this woman, was appreciated more than I could have ever imagined. I left the encounter feeling wonderful, and I felt as though the fact that I respected her values, instilled a deeper friendship between us.
So, if you know someone who puts a high value on products being made in the USA, buying gifts from them that were manufactured here will send a significant message that you genuinely care about them, far more than any Hallmark card ever could. Our actions speak louder than our words and louder than our greeting cards.
