This year’s holiday season certainly doesn’t feel like last year’s socially distanced, quarantine-era Christmas. You might have more opportunities to gather with the ones you love. You might feel safer traveling. Your company party could even be back on. But there’s no denying how the restrictions placed on real-world socializing in the past 18 months have made it challenging to maintain relationships during the pandemic.
Pair that with the shipping container delays and overseas shutdowns caused by COVID-19 and you might think your gift-giving options are slim. Check out the American Wool Gift Guide and you won’t need to worry about shipping container delays, international manufacturing issues or what the big box stores might already be out of – because the guide offers products from brands and companies that rely on stateside manufacturing using American-grown wool for everyone on your nice list.
For many, gifting in 2021 has grown beyond just an act of love on special occasions to one of empathy and a way to bridge the physical distance caused by quarantine and the celebrations missed. Take this opportunity to bring smiles to the faces of your loved ones and support everyone in the American wool industry. This year, AmericanWool.org has gathered a carefully curated collection of handpicked gifts you can find locally – and online – and broken them down into handy categories (such as City Slicker and Homebody) for easy shopping.
