Holiday Gifts

The holiday season is often viewed as a time for gathering and celebrating with friends and family, gift-giving, reflection and thanks. The USA.gov's website provides a variety of gift ideas for any occasion. This web page provides links to books, museum memorabilia, collectible items, unusual gifts, and travel ideas.

Before you go shopping, be sure to check the holiday shopping tips provided by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
