For Christmas, we certainly expect gifts from family and friends, but this is not same for important events such as Veterans Day.  Armistice Day, now known as Veterans Day is observed in remembrance of World War I.  In 1926, Congress passed a resolution that enabled US citizens to recognize Nov. 11 as an important date. In 1938, it was officially made a national holiday. One that strongly deserves to be celebrated with veterans day gifts.

What makes this holiday special is that it pays tribute to all American veterans whether alive or deceased. More importantly, it recognizes our fallen heroes and their sacrifices.  I can’t think of any holiday that should bring all of  America together like this one.  So why don’t we celebrate or shower our veterans and their families with veteran day gifts like we should? I don’t know, but we should.

Think of all the people in and military; both men and women who serve and protect our country. I bet you know a few people you can honor for veterans day. They are your parents, children, friends, grandparents, neighbors, coworkers and employees. Without further ado, here are great veterans day gifts ideas to help you embrace this holiday:
