American flags are also a great gift for children of all ages, and help instill pride in one's country, sparking a patriotic fire that will last a lifetime. "At a time when customers wait outside big box stores to buy disposable trinkets and toys made in China, we want to remind folks of the importance of buying American-made products," adds Dr. Reynolds. AmericanFlags.com sells only American-made US flags and carries them in dozens of sizes and materials for both indoor and outdoor use. Reynolds says that while July 4th, Memorial Day and Veterans Day always bring brisk flag sales, the holiday shopping season has become increasing important to his company over the years as consumers look for more meaningful keepsakes. "Flags make great gifts and already this year, we've had dozens of companies that have purchased flags to thank their clients, schools that have bought them for students and families that are buying them for neighbors, friends and loved ones," said Reynolds. "That's why we're offering deep discounts this holiday season and have expanded our product offerings to include a full line of patriotic gifts, including outdoor flag sets, garden banners, military keepsakes, patriotic Christmas ornaments, patriotic plaques, Americana-themed clothing, home decor and traditional toys proudly made in America."
