By Lisa Gunther

A Zippo lighter is one of those last remaining Made in USA products. Zippo never outsourced and cheapened their product by manufacturing it overseas. In 1932 George G. Blaisdell developed and produced the first Zippo lighter in a garage in Bradford, Pennsylvania. Zippo lighters have been manufactured in Bradford ever since.

Here are the top five reasons to get one engraved for a loved one today:

1. A Zippo lighter is a reasonably priced item with most ranging from $18 to $35. High quality, nostalgia and value all wrapped up in a small package. And, we know good things come in small packages.

2. Zippo lighters come in a number of styles and motifs. Sports teams (such as NFL, MLB, NBA, and NHL), military (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard), Wildlife, Playboy, Chrome lighters, Brass lighters, colored lighters, Hollywood stars, Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, and so many more. There are hundreds of themes to choose from. You can go for a basic chrome or hand pick a lighter with a design that your loved one is into as a hobby, profession or passion. There is a Zippo lighter for everyone on your shopping list.
