Whether for holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, or other special occasions, choosing a special gift for your military family members can be pretty hard, especially if you yourself have never served. But you know how important it is to show them how much you love them and appreciate what they have done for your country and your family – so make sure your gifts are personalized and have a certain sentimental value. To help you out, we've compiled a list of nine best gift ideas for your military family members.

  1. BRONZED COMBAT BOOTS

If your military family member has kept their military boots, think about preserving them in bronze and turning them into a personal monument of their service. We at Bronzery can do this for you. We can also mount them on the base of your choice and add a personalized inscription or add rank pins to the set.

  1. BRONZED COVER OR A HAT

Another great item to turn into a bronze token of their time spent in the military is their cover or a hat. You can have this cover mounted on wooden, metal, or marble base and add a picture or engrave a sweet message to it.

  1. AMERICAN EAGLE STATUE

Few things are more patriotic than the American eagle statue. Your military family member will love it and be filled with pride every time they look at it.

  1. FLAG DISPLAY CASE

Made to hold a properly folded veteran’s flag, this is the perfect gift for veterans, military retirees, and those that are about to retire.

  1. FRAMED MILITARY CARICATURE

Order a caricature of your military family member in a scene of your choice (driving a tank, flying a military helicopter, or other) – it will be original and amusing, but still, a very thoughtful gift that will make your military family member smile from ear to ear.

  1. PERSONALIZED MILITARY COFFEE MUG

Because the US Military runs on coffee, you can’t go wrong with a personalized military coffee mug. Besides the official insignia of the military, you can also have the member’s name added.

  1. MILITARY-THEMED STOCKINGS

Military-themed stockings are a great gift for the military member who’s coming home for Christmas. Add something that will remind them of you while they’re away, and don’t forget to add a supportive and loving message.

  1. MILITARY CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS

You can buy glass ornaments featuring the emblem of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, or Coast Guard, or you can have some of your military member’s personal memorabilia bronzed and turned into an ornament.

  1. BRONZED MILITARY KEYCHAIN

Buy a personalized military keychain that will remind your military family member of their time spent in service. You can also use one of their personal keepsakes and have it bronzed and turned into a keychain, so they can take it with them everywhere they go. Think about adding a personalized message to it as well.

And to complete your gift, add lots and lots of love.
