It may mark the kickoff to summer, but Memorial Day is truly a day for honoring those who sacrificed their lives while defending the United States and its values. It’s a day to build awareness about our country’s freedom and its significant price. Every year soldiers and their families have to pay that price, which is why it was declared a national holiday by Congress in 1971.
With the patriotic holiday just around the corner, we scoured the web looking for five creative Memorial Day print products to thank veterans (and their families) this year, from magnets to key chains. Thank those that selflessly protect our rights with these inspirational red-white-and-blue gift ideas!
