Need Military Gifts Ideas?

As we head towards the Thanksgiving weekend, and the biggest shopping day of the year on Black Friday, would you like to skip all the craziness of the mall, and get some special military-themed gifts from the comfort of your easy chair?

I've gone through and created a shopping list of specially-selected military-themed gifts that would be perfect for that military member or family on your shopping list. There are a number of categories, including separate sections for each branch of service, and even a section for carefully-selected, good quality and good value engagement rings, if you plan to pop the big question over the holidays. (In a previous life, I worked in a jewelry store, and want to help you choose a good value ring that she'll be happy to wear forever.) Check it out at the link below.

If you decide to purchase through our gift shop, and purchase within 24 hours of first clicking on the link to Amazon, the site will receive a small commission. It doesn't cost you a penny more, and it helps us offset the costs of operating the site, so we can continue to provide information for military families. A portion of all commissions from now through Christmas will be donated to various veterans charities. So we thank you for starting your Christmas shopping here, and helping to support this site and the veterans charities we support.
