10 Patriotic Holiday Gift IdeasOctober 2, 2014 by Carrie Miller
Need a present for the military or service person on your holiday shopping list? There’s no need to scramble to the stores when you can find the perfect patriotic gift at Military Service Company. Here’s our top 10 list of thoughtful, meaningful holiday gift ideas that your friends and family are sure to love!
1. Custom Coins
MSC has the perfect stocking stuffer. Honor a loved one who has served in the military or a civilian service position with a custom coin that recognizes their bravery and hard work. Available for every branch of the military and several public service organizations (police, firefighting, and public safety), these customizable coins come in numerous enamel colors and shapes to suit any taste.
Our personalized mugs are customer favorites. Choose from a variety of sizes and styles, including the popular Texas Teacup and the whimsical Mermaid Mug. Imprint an insignia, motto, or name on the mug to create a practical yet thoughtful gift that will be cherished for years.
3. Mug Mats
A mug mat is the perfect accompaniment to a personalized mug. These heat-resistant, washable mug mats keep your furniture safe from spills. A nonskid vinyl backing holds your mug in place and a raised border contains drips. Pick a complementary design or match your mug mat to your custom mug to create a set.
Give your favorite solider or public servant something they’re proud to wear: a customized t-shirt or tank top bearing their emblem and colors. MSC offers several options for design, including digital printing, embroidery, and heat-sealed appliqué. For long-lasting, comfortable casual wear, look no further than our wide selection of easily customizable tees and tanks.
5. Dress Shirts
Whether worn to the office or a special event, a customized dress shirt exudes the professionalism and integrity of military insignia. Our button-down shirts are available in short-sleeve or long-sleeve styles and a variety of sizes. Also, be sure to check out our fishing shirts for those who enjoy spending time out on the water.
Chilly winter weather makes warm, protective outerwear the ideal gift this holiday season. There’s nothing tougher than a classic leather bomber jacket marked with a military emblem. MSC also offers customizable fleece jackets, pullovers, vests, and raincoats for outwear that are appropriate for any occasion or climate.
For days swinging clubs at the golf course or watching kids play at the park, gift your loved ones a ball cap, golf visor, or fishing hat that bears the insignia or motto of their branch of service. You can select a rear fastener from a variety of options: Velcro, buckled cloth back straps, and fitted caps.
8. Door Mats
Greet visitors to your holiday party with a custom door mat that recognizes your military service. Or give one to a friend or family member so they can proudly welcome clients to their office. Designed for indoor or outdoor use, our door mats won’t fade from sunlight or exposure. The WaterHog door mat can even absorb 1.5 gallons of water, keeping floors dry, clean, and hazard-free.
9. Lapel Pins
For all the holiday events and special occasions they’ll attend this season, add a unique touch to dress shirts, overcoats, and scarves with a lapel bearing military or organizational insignia. Choose from a variety of finish options, including brass, nickel, silver, and gold, for a classic, sophisticated style. This meaningful keepsake will become a family heirloom your relatives can pass along for generations to come.
Add a patriotic touch to any gift you buy this holiday season with decals and patches that clearly show allegiance. Decals easily affix to luggage, vehicles, windows, or any other smooth surface. Adhesive options include permanent, removable, ultra-removable, and static cling. Sew or attach patches to jackets and other apparel to quickly transform purchases into personalized gifts.Tags: custom coins, custom mugs, custom shirts, decals, door mats, dress shirts, hats, holiday gift ideas, lapel pins, mug mats, outerwear, patches
