Beyond red, white and blue lights and ornaments, you will find both tacky and beautiful patriotic gifts this holiday season.
Among them? Fabriche flag-draped angel tree-toppers; patriotic holiday note pads; holiday plaques that say "God Bless America," military ornaments and dolls.
One online store, www.americastore.com, sells patriotic reading glasses ($19.95) and Christmas cards with a drawing of the United States on the front and the sentiment inside, "At This Season We Stand United." The cards are 18 for $18.
The Bradford Exchange (www.collectiblestoday.com ) advertises an 8-inch-high sculpture called "On Freedom's Wings."
The $39.95 assemblage is "hand crafted and hand painted" and combines a picture of the Statue of Liberty, the flag and a model of an eagle clutching a flag in its talons. It is the company's most subtle offering.
