About Byers' Choice
"Byers' Choice is dedicated to bringing you the finest handcrafted gifts. Every Caroler and Kindle is lovingly produced in our facility in Pennsylvania to bring the special warmth and traditions of Christmas into your home."
– Jeff Byers
In the true spirit of Christmas, founder Bob Byers Sr. established the Byers Foundation in 1982. More than 20% of the company’s annual profits are passed through the foundation each year to support local, national and international charities.
“The expression of joy that can be found in any Caroler comes directly from the love and caring that our skilled artisans put into their work. They bring the magic of Christmas to life everyday.”
– Bob Byers Jr.
Byers' Choice Carolers
Beginning in the 1960’s, Joyce Byers spent the lead-up to every Christmas hand crafting Carolers as decorations and Christmas presents. What started as a few small gifts for family made out of some clay, paint, scraps of old clothes, and her sons’ hair quickly grew into a project that took over the Byers’ house every December as more and more people learned about the Carolers and wanted their own.
From there, the company has grown to a team of over 80 artisans working to handcraft the Carolers, which are sold in gift stores across the United States and around the world, while remaining true to the spirit of Christmas.
