American Made Gift Ideas from Stormy Kromer Employees

Recently we asked our employees for ideas of their favorite American made products (other than Stormy Kromer, that is!).  With their input, we’ve put together a little gift guide for you to inspire your holiday shopping this season.

Sock Monkey KitWe’ll start with some fellow Midwestern companies.  Fox River Socks, located in Osage, IA, offers a full range of warm, comfortable, functional and fun socks for all your outdoor activities.  They’ve been manufacturing these fine foot covers in the Midwest since 1900.  In addition, they are the manufacturer of the Original Rockford Red Heel Monkey Sock.  They even offer a sock monkey kit!  At just $28, the kit includes everything you need to make one sock monkey.  A great project for crafters and their family!



Duluth PackOver in Duluth, MN, Duluth Pack has been making rugged and functional outdoor packs since 1882.  Like Stormy Kromer caps, these packs are built to last and guaranteed for life.  While you can’t go wrong with an Original Duluth Pack, we also love that they have added a modern twist to their traditional packs, like this Scout Pack complete with laptop sleeve.




Burt's Bees Essentials SetDid you know Burt’s Bees products are made in the USA?  KJ, one of our Division Managers suggested them, and on their website it states: Over 95% of our products are made right in our own manufacturing plant in Durham, NC. The rest are made by other respectable American manufacturers.  They offer a wide variety of gift sets for men, women and babies too, all at a wide range of price points.


Weber Q 100 GrillWhat better endorsement could you ask for than this?  “I have one of these, and it’s awesome,” says Jeremy from our IT department.  The Weber Q 100 portable grill packs 8,500 BTUs in a compact grill that is perfect for your next tailgate or picnic.  And of course, it’s made in the USA.


Classic ChapstickAnd last but not least, “America’s Favorite Lip Balm”, Chapstick, is also made in the USA.  Available virtually everywhere, it makes a great last-minute stocking stuffer.  We’ve got a few employees who swear by it up here in the cold and dry Upper Peninsula winters.





So – what would YOU add to our American made gift guide?


Last-minute Surprises from Stormy Kromer

Welcome to the last frantic days of the holiday season!  The employees here at Stormy Kromer feel a little like the elves at Santa’s workshop – we’ve been working seemingly around the clock to be sure that everyone who put Stormy Kromer gear on their wish list will wake up happy on Christmas morning!

If you’re still looking for that little something to stuff in a stocking, or round out someone’s gift, we’ve got a handful of fun items that just might fit the bill.

Add a little flair to a Stormy Kromer cap with a pin, or help your loved one shout to the world their love of Stormy with a bumper sticker on their vehicle of choice.

And don’t forget, for the lager-loving folks on your gift list…that we also make clothes for beer(Or other cold beverages that come in a can or bottle.)

Also…we’re hoping to make your shopping dreams come true this weekend too!  Two lucky shoppers on each day this weekend will get their orders FOR FREE!  We’ll draw Monday morning and contact the winners.

And finally, because we’ve heard it through the grapevine that Santa occasionally reads the SK blog, are there any Stormy Kromer items on your wish list?

Holiday Gift Guide, Courtesy of the Upper Peninsula

Here at Stormy Kromer, we’re proud to be made in the USA.  Sometimes we’re even prouder to be made in Michigan’s beautiful Upper Peninsula, even though you might not know exactly where that is.  Let’s just say that if pointing out the UP on a map was one of David Letterman’s geography stunts out on the streets of New York City, the failure rate would be pretty high.

We like to think that we’re a small part of changing that.  A part of, well, putting the UP back on the map.  As the holidays approach, we thought we’d share some other great UP companies who are not just surviving, but thriving in this wilderness we call home.  Check them out; you might just find that perfect gift for the hard-to-buy-for on your list.

Iverson Snowshoes – For over 50 years the Iverson craftsmen have been handcrafting the finest traditional snowshoes, right here in the USA.  All are based on designs that have been perfected through the eons. They strive to mix tradition with technology while staying true to their cause. No techie terms or slick marketing slogans, just the best snowshoes for the true enthusiasts.  Shingleton, MI.

Rapid River Knifeworks – Established in the spring of 2002, Rapid River Knifeworks is a producer of high quality custom knives. With a lot of skill, a few pieces of machinery and some really big dreams, they developed a line of custom knives that combine beauty with strength and practical usability. Rapid River, MI.

Sayklly’s Confectionary & GiftsSince 1906 and for three generations the Sayklly family has been delighting folks in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and beyond with homemade chocolates and candies, made from old-world recipes with only premium ingredients.  They even feature a chocolate bar in the shape of our fair peninsula.  Escanaba, MI.

Pasty Central – To be clear, it’s pronounced with a short ‘a’, and it’s a hearty meal of beef, potatoes and onions seasoned and wrapped in a flaky crust.  Made popular in the UP during the mining heyday, it’s unofficially the official food of the peninsula.  Pasty Central will ship them straight to your door, so you can enjoy them, no matter your zip code.  Calumet, MI.

For even more UP products, including those made by individuals artists and craftsmen, check out Michigan Upper Hand.
