Honor Thy President

In honor of President's Day, here are some fun American-made presidential things.

  • Thomas Jefferson poster (pictured above) -- Before Internet memes, there were motivational quotes from people like Jefferson. Here are ten of his inspiring rules printed on a 11x17 inch art print, handmade by Lauren Fritsch on dark charcoal paper in gold ink. Available also in cream/hot pink, cream/turquoise, and orange/navy color combinations via Citizen Native, an online shop curated entirely with Made-in-the-USA goods. 

  • Presidential Blocks Set -- This Uncle Goose wooden block set contains one block for each of the 44 presidents + one with the oath of office. The block have fun facts about each of the presidents and, when put together, they form the American flag on one side. Handcrafted in Michigan with Basswood grown in the Great Lakes region with non-toxic inks, via Brooklyn-based company Uncommon Goods.

  • Sixteenth Tee -- This is the men's version of a silver t-shirt honoring our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln. Proudly displays the quote, "I leave you hoping that the lamp of liberty will burn in your bosoms until there shall no longer be a doubt that all men are created free and equal." A women's version and other designs are also available in this Lincoln Series, from U.S. of Awesome.
  • White House and Presidential Seal mug -- Did you know that the White House gift shop sells some nifty presidential things that are, yes, made in the USA? Everything including this mug featuring the White House architecture and presidential eagle and seal, baby items, barware, woven throws, pens, hats, holiday ornaments, and even cast busts of some of the past presidents.

Do you have any favorite stuff related to the U.S. Presidents?
