Made in the USA Gift Guides 2013

If I had had more time this year, I would have liked to have done some of my own gift guides. Alas, time (and my job) caught up with me. Instead, I decided to do a post of other people's ideas for gift-giving that are as good as or better than what I could have done myself. Presents for the booze lover? Your coworker? The home owner? The dog owner? Your best friend for life? The new mommy? Or the handsome guy in your life? Your favorite country mouse? These gift guides for this holiday season have got you covered:
