20 Genius Gifts for the Independence Day Fans in Your Life
Welcome to Earth. We have presents.
For countless Americans, July 4th means freedom, backyard barbecues, and patriotic firework displays. For a subset of that group, however, it holds another meaning: a great excuse to watch what is, without a doubt, the holiday's best action movie, Independence Day. And for those who have always dreamed of a Bill Pullman presidency or wanted to scream, "Welcome to Earth!" in the face of an alien invader, the internet is full of killer accessories to celebrate your love of this seminal film. Here's the cream of the crop.
Best Life's editors have scoured the internet to bring you the best products out there, and we're hoping you'll love them as much as we do. Full disclosure: we may earn a commission for anything you purchase through links on this page, but that doesn't mean you'll pay more for them (we'd never do that to you!). Pricing and availability are accurate as of the piece's initial publication date, but it's the internet and we can't guarantee that these sweet, sweet deals will last forever, so scoop them up before someone else does!
