It’s Christmas time already and that means another gift guide for your patriotic friends and family! This is by no means a comprehensive list, but we wanted to pick out a few of our favorite all-American brands and give them some extra love during the Christmas shopping season. Without further ado, here are some fantastic American Christmas gifts to give (and receive) that also support local, American businesses who don’t give your money to causes that don’t serve you.
Surrender Your Story by Tara Sun
Tara Sun’s gorgeous book invites women of all ages to relinquish their anxieties and control and put their life into the hands of our Creator. Drawing on scripture and her own life experiences, Tara offers advice and guidance on how to “let go of your death grip on control and find freedom in surrender; learn how to truly trust God with the twists and turns of your story; depend on God as your source of strength; and move forward in faith, even in the face of life’s disappointment and setbacks.”
Surrender Your Story would be especially great for your bestie or any woman facing a difficult season.
