On November 11th, 1918 an armistice agreement was signed, ending the World War 1 conflict between the Allied Nations and Germany. The date has since been declared a national holiday and is reserved for honoring all U.S. Military veterans. Salute the service of our brave military service members by acknowledging their sacrifice and honoring their courage. Thank the special veterans in your life by spending time in their company, visiting a war memorial with significant meaning to them, being present at a service at which they are honored or give them a gift to commemorate the day. Veteran’s Day is on Sunday, November 11, 2012.
A wide range of gifts can be appropriate for Veteran’s Day. Patriotically themed gifts featuring the colors of the American flag are usually very popular, as are camouflage-themed items. A flag display case makes a meaningful gift for any vet. Patriotic mugs, picture frames and apparel allow those who have served their country to proudly display their status as veterans. Arttowngifts.com has a series of gifts for those who have or are serving in the military.
Military picture frames available in red, white and blue or camouflage are customizable with a name, date, location or other personalization of your choosing. A patriotic picture frame makes a vet’s service a proud part of the home, and serves as a daily reminder of sacrifice and bravery. Camouflage flasks available in pink camo or traditional colors make fun gifts for veterans who enjoy camouflage outfitting. If your veteran enjoys a fine cigar, Patriot Cigar Pub Gifts are perfect. Patriot Cigar-themed steins, poker sets, wall signs, humidors and coaster sets are ideal for a home bar or man cave. These items feature personalization with a name and date, making a fun addition to poker night or game time!
