By G.I. Jobs Staff


Sure, you could get them a watch, mittens or a sweater off of the clearance rack in the back corner of the department store.

Or… you could be awesome and get that special veteran in your life a gift they’ll actually love this holiday season. Because we’re pulling for you to get it right this year, we went on the hunt for the best gifts out there for vets—and some great gifts for vets to get their loved ones as well.

And even better… some of the items on the list are handmade by veterans themselves! These are guaranteed to be so great, you’ll want to skip the gifts and just buy them for yourself (don’t worry, your secret is safe with us).
