We started Bullets2Bandages with a mission of providing people with a simple, yet powerful way to say “thank you” to the service members and veterans who have fought for our freedom and safety. In this season of gratitude, we’re excited to announce that we’ve expanded our collection of upcycled military ammunition to include exclusive holiday bottle openers. Whether you’re shopping for an active duty service member home on leave or a decorated veteran, our .50 caliber and 20mm bottle openers make a perfect stocking stuffer for the service member on your list.
Bullets2Bandages holiday bottle openers
Like our classic bottle openers, the gifts in our exclusive holiday collection are made from once‐fired military grade .50 caliber and 20mm bullets. Each bottle opener is available with a “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays” message engraved on the casing, and many come with an engraved gift box. All of our holiday bottle openers are made in the U.S.A. and come in the following finishes:
● Classic brass
● Gloss red
● Matte black
Personalize your bottle opener
In addition to a holiday greeting, we also offer bottle openers with a personalized message. Our personalized bottle openers include your choice of “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays” on the front and a custom engraving on the back. This option allows you to include a name or personal message of gratitude to your service member. There is enough space for three lines of text, up to 25 characters per line, and we offer eight different fonts to choose from to make the gift uniquely yours. We ask that you allow two to three additional business days for production of engraved orders.
Holiday gift ideas
There are many ways you can get creative with how you give a service member one of our holiday bottle openers. A personalized bottle opener paired with a six‐pack of your loved one’s favorite local brew is a great gift for the beer lover. For a non‐alcoholic gift, package one of our holiday bottle openers with a couple of bottles of Coca Cola. Our beer caddies, pint glasses, tap handles, and growlers also make for thematic pairings.
Bullets2Bandages gives back to veterans
We originally began making a small line of necklaces and bracelets to fundraise for the Travis Manion Foundation, but we quickly realized that there was an interest in our products and our support of veteran charities. Today, we donate at least 15 percent of our profits on an annual basis, and in 2014 and 2015 those donations exceeded 50 percent. In addition to supporting the Travis Manion Foundation, Bullets2Bandages is proud to partner with:
● The MARSOC Foundation
● 31 Heroes Project
● Red Circle Foundation
● Operation Ward 57
● Wounded Wear
● Connected Warrior Foundation
● Hope for the Warriors
● Marine Reconnaissance Foundation
● EOD Warrior Foundation
● 03XX Foundation
● Rally Point
Show your gratitude this holiday season
When you gift your loved one with a bottle opener from our holiday collection, you’re doing more than extending a token of gratitude for his or her military service. You can feel good that a portion of your purchase will go to an organization that gives veterans the support they need to overcome the challenges of readjusting to civilian life.
