Buy American- Challenge!?

Okay, so this holiday season, I know I'm planning on buying American goods. It's hard but it's a nice challenge. This is a challenge, to inspire everyone a little bit. I am going to list 3 'families' with personalities. You can choose 1 family (or more) and 'buy' gifts for them, but they must be American. Just list the family you did, and the gift you bought for each person. Each family has 6 figures to buy for, so one gift for each. Here's a good website to inspire you:

*The Jones family*:

*Dad- James-52 years old- Sales Representative- James is a guys guy. He likes sports, cars, TV and other electonics, and food. James usually wears casual clothing when not working, and he has barbeques with friends as often as he can.

*Mom- Joanne- 50 years old- Interior designers- Joanne is an interior designer, and loves anything to do with the home. She likes cooking, and decorating stuff for her home. Joanne especially likes unique, creative items.

*Son- James- 21 years old- College Senior- James is a college senior and is a star athlete. He loves all sports, particularly football, and anything to do with them. He is also a decent student and likes to find new things to help him study.

*Daughter- Samantha- 3 years old- Samantha is like a little princess herself, and loves anything girly or princessy. She too enjoys toys more than clothes, although she likes dress up. She is very headstrong
