Boomer Beam, Director of Marketing & Communications at the All American Clothing Co., has released his 'Made in America: 10 Affordable Christmas Gifts for 2013'. This year`s list features Christmas gifts costing as low as $2.00, including a candle for mom, toys for the kids, and gifts for all.

The National Retail Federation recently reported that Americans spent an average of $752 per consumer in 2012 during Holiday shopping season. In addition to this, ABC World News reports that if each American just spent $64 on USA Made items during the Holidays, it would create over 200,000 new jobs right here in America.

With this being said, if all Americans spent all their $752 on Christmas gifts that are made in America it would generate a total of 2.35 million new jobs in the U.S.

Beam believes that one of the best gifts someone can give to themselves this year is to think about the impact of spending so they can offer more than just a gift.

“Giving a gift that is made in America will not only make you feel the excitement to give a gift to family & friends. It may also make you feel proud because you are ultimately giving the gift of job support to the person who made it.”

Beam also insists that choosing American made for the holidays is ultimately a choice of the consumer.

“It comes down to choice of the consumer. I`m not trying to tell folks that made in America is the only option, or how they should spend their dollars. I`m simply saying that there is a made in America option and letting people know where it exists. It`s ultimately a choice of theirs.”

Dear Santa,

All I want is the creation of more jobs and a better economy. I have been well behaved for much of this year. This was tough during the election, but I was good for the most part. I have kept my promise on manufacturing more items than I ever have before. To be exact, I exported more than $7.1 trillion worth of goods this year which is more than China or any other country on earth. I made more items this past year than any other year throughout my life. This includes my early years of the Industrial Revolution.

Santa, I would like to let the world know that I am back.  I am making progress every day through the efforts of my citizens and their innovations. Will you please let Americans know how important it is to buy items made by me this holiday season?

Last year between Thanksgiving and Christmas Americans spent over $584 billion. Think of how many jobs that could`ve been created if all that had been spent on items made here.

As seen in FOLK Magazine.

Please let my citizens know that I need their support this Christmas. I cannot create more jobs and support a better economy without them. Thank you for your help.

Sincerely,

Uncle Sam

P.S. Enjoy the cookies. I made them all by myself.
