For those with a love for Americana or a passion for patriotism, this is the gift guide for you. Perhaps you’re searching for the perfect summer birthday gift or a gift for a friend abroad. Or, maybe its a hostess gift for your upcoming summer get-together. Here, we feature a few gift ideas from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop that will highlight the spirit of red, white and blue.
Pictured here to the left is our America-opoly Game; a twist on the classic game that celebrates our great nation. Buy properties such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Route 66, the Statue of Liberty, the Grand Canyon or Niagara Falls. Collect Homes and trade them in for Estates. Land on the Fourth of July and scoop up the cash from the center of the board. Pick up $200 each time you pass GO U.S.A., but beware…you may end up in a traffic jam and lose three turns. Or worse yet, be audited by the IRS. Whatever happens, America-opoly is good ol’ American fun for family and friends. Proudly made in the USA, this game is on sale now for $34.95 during the SYW summer sale.
“Life, Liberty, Happiness,” three words that are synonymous with the festivity surrounding summer celebrations. These patriotic words decorate our Americana Candle, seen here to the right. A greeting card, gift, and candle luminary all in one, this candle glows beautifully when lit. The glass cylinder is filled with 16oz of fragrance wax, wrapped with printed canvas and packaged in a clear box with a “To/From” tag. Fragrance scent is an uplifting blend of cedarwood, sandalwood and patchouli. You can refill this jar with any 3 x 4 pillar. Presenting a great gift this season, the Americana Candle is also made in the USA and on sale now for $24.95.
For the history buff or folk art lover, this next gift is a must have. Our Lincoln Folk Art (seen below) is a giclee print, with a faux canvas finish and set in a black, wooden floater frame; for a unique, three dimensional look to your walls. Talented New Hampshire artist Tim Campbell, shares his interpretation of a patriotic Abe Lincoln. Folk art charm at its best, honest Abe’s black top hat appears very large in contrast with the mini American flag he holds. He stands tall in front of a green field, with a farm house in the distance and a bright blue sky. The Lincoln Folk Art Framed Print is part of our made in the USA promotion this summer, and is on sale now for just $69.95.
