Editor’s Note: Not sure what to get your liberty-loving friends and family this Christmas? Have no fear – Liberty Nation is here. These gift ideas from our authors are sure to satisfy.
With the possibility of a “dark winter” on the horizon, nothing says warm me up like a super expensive piece of appliance art from Café. It’s space-age stylish with copper accents, Wi-Fi enabled, and features Voice-to-Brew capabilities. Can this coffee maker read your mind? Maybe not – but it’s compatible with Alexa and Google Home. Even if you are not a coffee connoisseur, friends will ooh and ahh at your fabulous taste in carafes. How can you possibly go wrong with a discounted price tag of $229? Normally, this beauty is $349, so grab yours fast.

Gifts for the 55 and Over Set
Everyone complains about what to give the person who has everything. Here are two winning ideas for your friends and family over the age of 55. Shall we recall that sunscreen wasn’t even invented when these folks spent summers at the beach? Such as it is, trips to the dermatologist for skin cancer aren’t infrequent for this set. Still, they all want to retire to Florida or Arizona. How about a gift from Coolibar this year? Smart casual clothing with an SPF built in is all the rage with this demographic. Coolibar markets itself as “Technical design, true elegance, tested UPF 50+.” What’s better is they deliver high quality, classy looking clothes at reasonable prices that will help keep you from the dermatologist’s knife.
Number two on my list for the senior set are the peepers with LED lights. Tired of watching your husband squint at the restaurant menu? Reading glasses with little LED lights are the answer. Now there are two kinds, depending on your preference. One type has you changing batteries and the other is a rechargeable plug-in. I’ve used both for doing needlepoint in places like airplanes and personally prefer the rechargeable to fumbling with tiny batteries – but the choice is yours and the price is right.

For the Rural Shopper
Okay, city slickers, if you have to buy a gift for the flyover folks in your life, skip the fancy duds and high dollar hipster coffee shop gift cards and look to Carhartt for your giving home base. For the gals on your list, try a pair of utility leggings, with a sleek and custom fit equipped with pockets for phones, hoof picks, and car keys. For the guys, you can’t beat the long sleeve t-shirts (budget-friendly) that will last for years. The brand is rugged, work-oriented, and long-lasting. Trust this farm girl and skip the frou-frou presents that will be long lost at the back of your loved one’s closet or on the rummage sale table come spring.
