Are you looking for ways to show the veteran in your life how much you care about them? Have you struggled in the past to find patriotic gifts that they’ll appreciate? If so, then you need to learn all that you can about finding the best flag poles to give your loved ones.
Nothing shows your appreciation for their service more than a high-quality flag. It represents the freedom that they fought for, as well as the sacrifices they made to protect it.
See below for an in-depth guide on how to find the best flag pole to give your military veteran.
What to Look for in a Military Veteran Gift
At times, it might feel as if there is no proper way to say “thank you” to someone that served in our military ranks. How do you thank someone for sacrificing their life or well-being to protect the freedom of others? it’s the most selfless action that one can take.
That begs the question… What should you look for in a military veteran gift? Should it always be America-themed? How do you know when you’ve come across the perfect gift?
The topic of the gift depends on the situation. For example, if you’re giving them a gift for Veterans Day then, yes, the gift should be America-themed. Should you buy them something America-related for every birthday and Christmas? No; stick with their hobbies and other interests.
When giving a veteran an American-themed gift, make sure to look for quality. If you give a gift that requires installation, make sure they’re physically able to install it themselves or volunteer to install it for them.
You’ll also want to look into manufacturing. Make sure to purchase them something that’s made in the USA. It’s subtle, but many veterans prefer USA-made products because American-made items typically:
- Are made of higher quality materials
- Have more durability
- Were manufactured with fair labor laws
- Are safer for customers to use
- Help the local economies thrive
Why a Flagpole Kit is an Awesome Gift
If you’re looking for gifts for veterans that check all of the boxes, then the best option is to give them a flagpole kit. Every veteran should be able to show off their patriotism with a flag installed on their property.
There are many tremendous reasons why your veteran will benefit from a flagpole kit. First, it will enhance their property’s exterior. Nothing looks better than the stars and stripes flying high in front of a residential or commercial building. Especially if the commercial business is veteran-owned!
The American Flag will also help your veteran to stand out from the crowd. If you purchase the right flagpole for them, the modern design can separate them from anyone else that has a traditional flagpole on their property (more on that in a minute).
The best flag poles are the ones that are made from high-quality materials; ones that integrate state-of-the-art technology into their design. This will benefit your veteran substantially. Let’s take a look at what you should look for in a flagpole for your beloved veteran.
What to Look for When Buying a Residential Flagpole
Believe it or not, there are different kinds of flagpoles on the market today. Investing in the wrong one could cause significant setbacks (and frustration) for your loved one. You want to make sure you’ve found the best fit for them.
So what do you look for in a residential flagpole? First, you have to consider the size. They come in many different heights, but the right size depends on the aesthetics of the house.
The height of your flagpole should go hand-in-hand with the size of your home. You want it to be tall enough that it’s clearly visible, but not so tall that it towers over your house.
Generally, most customers find a 20-foot flagpole to be ideal. If you have a two-story house, then you might want to go with a 25-foot flagpole to compliment the height of the house.
Second, look into the material of the flagpole itself. The most common materials are aluminum, steel, and fiberglass. Aluminum is the best option because it’s durable, lightweight, and holds up well against the elements.
Why the Titan Telescoping Kit Has the Best Flag Pole
Veterans deserve nothing but the best; they gave up all their personal goals and even sacrificed time with their loved ones to defend their country’s freedom.
Simply put: your veteran deserves the Titan Telescoping Flagpole Kit. It’s the best flag pole on the market; leaps and bounds beyond any other flagpole kit being sold today.
Every Titan Telescoping Flagpole Kit includes a premium nylon US Flag with sewn stars, the Titan Telescoping Flagpole, a ground sleeve to install it into, enough hardware to fly two flags at once, and a gold ball topper.
The flagpole itself features state-of-the-art telescoping technology. As the name would imply, this body is made up of interlocking aluminum sleeves, allowing it to extend and retract as a telescope would. That body composition also gives it more flexibility, allowing it to withstand high winds and not tip over (which is a common problem with traditional steel poles).
One of the most innovative features of the Titan Telescoping Flagpole kit is the swivel ring clips that it comes with. These give your flag the ability to fly 360-degrees around the pole. There won’t be any tangling, which is especially important for those of you buying it for a disabled veteran.
All of the products in the Titan Telescoping Flagpole Kit are made in the U.S.A. and come with a 2-year warranty to cover them. This ensures that your veteran will be able to enjoy the flagpole for far longer, without having to pay a cent to cover the damage.
The pole comes pre assembled and ready to be extended when you open it. All you have to do is follow the simple instructions for installing the ground sleeve, then it’s ready to be used! A nice addition might be to volunteer to install it for them as well!
The Options of Our Titan Telescoping Flagpole Kit
You’ve found the best flag pole to purchase for your loved one, but the options don’t stop there! We pride ourselves on offering as many options for customers as we can.
First, you’ll want to look into the different sizes we offer. The Titan Telescoping Flagpole comes in 15′, 20’LT, 20′, and 25′.
The 15′ and 20’LT have a 2.5″ base, 14 gauge wall thickness, 2 joints, and a wind rating of 75 mph. Meanwhile, the 20′ and 25′ have a 3.0″ base, 12 gauge wall thickness, 3 joints, and a wind rating of 95 mph.
Next, you will want to consider the right color for your veteran. Our flag poles come in three different colors: silver, black/bronze, and light bronze. Pick the one that best matches the exterior of your veteran’s home. For example, if they have a black fence, then the black/bronze flagpole will mess well with it.
Other Awesome Accessories for the Titan Telescoping Flagpole
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better… The Titan Telescoping Flagpole Kit has several other accessories you can purchase for your veteran. These can be exceptional gifts for later holidays or a way to ensure they’re set up from the get-go.
As most of you may know, proper Flag etiquette indicates that you are only allowed to fly the American flag when it’s visible. That means that if you don’t have a light to shine on it during the night, you’re required to take it down each evening.
Thankfully, there is a solution. You can purchase the Titan Solar Light to give your veteran a way to keep the flagpole up 24/7 if they so choose.
The Titan Solar Light fits perfectly on the top of the telescoping flagpole. It features 6 bright LED lights that will shine down on the American flag from above, making those stars and stripes stand out even more.
Batteries come included, and the light will automatically turn off and on. The switch activates at dusk and dawn. Just like the Titan Telescoping Flagpole, the Titan Solar Light comes with a 2-year warranty to make sure it runs as it should.
