Many brides and grooms like to exchange gifts prior to their wedding ceremony. Although it’s usually a private occasion when the bride and groom can take some time for themselves before the wedding, the couple’s photographer is often present to capture the moment. Thanks to bride Shayne and the couple’s fabulous photographer Veronica Lola Photography, we get a little glimpse into that moment when Shayne surprised her husband-to-be with a personal and unique groom gift just before their wedding.
The groom isn’t the only member of the wedding party who would appreciate a custom, hand-made gift. If you’re racking your brain for unique and personal groomsmen gifts, custom needlepoint flasks, belts and wallets make great gifts for groomsmen and family members. Brewster Belt Company will work with you to create the perfect design and each item can be personalized with a monogram as well. There is also a 20% discount when you order five or more custom, needlepoint items.
And, don’t forget the bride! For the bride, Brewster Belt Company can design and stitch a custom needlepoint ring bearer pillow in your wedding colors. Pillows can include graphics, your wedding date, monograms and more.
Custom, needlepoint groom, groomsman and bride gifts are personal, thoughtful and can serve as a cherished memory for years to come. To place your custom order visit BrewsterBelt.com or contact us to discuss your design ideas.
And, just like that, another football season is wrapping up. Here are some little known facts about the Super Bowl if you want to drop some knowledge at a Super Bowl party this Sunday, even if you’re only watching for the commercials or the halftime show:
• At-home fans will eat about 1.33 billion chicken wings on Super Bowl Sunday.

• The Super Bowl trophy is made by Tiffany & Co. and cost $25,000.
• 72 game balls are used during the Super Bowl (and we don’t want to hear about Deflategate anymore!).
• Gamblers wagered a record $132.5 million on Super Bowl 50.
Thanks to Forbes and USA Today for providing these interesting Super Bowl facts!
So, that brings us to needlepoint….
“Huh? It does? What does needlepoint have to do with football,” you ask.
Absolutely nothing….Well, unless you like to needlepoint while watching football. (Yes, that’s a thing).

It’s the perfect accessory for football fans, even in the off-season.
Brewster Belt Company‘s needlepoint belts are totally customizable. Change the colors to match your favorite football team’s colors or work with our designers to create your own custom football design from scratch. You can also select a silver or brass belt buckle, as well as the the leather color. Brewster also makes custom needlepoint football wallets, flasks, key fobs, dog collars and more. They make great gifts for football fans.
If you’re a betting man, a custom football needlepoint wallet can house your winnings.

All Brewster Belt products are hand-stitched and made from top-quality materials. The design team can create virtually any design you can imagine (and even those you can’t). They can also help with design inspiration if you’re suffering from a creative block. Once you settle on a design, within 3 to 5 days you will receive a preview of exactly how your product will look. The team will also work with you to revise the design until you are 100% happy.
Since all of Brewster Belt’s needlepoint belts and accessories are stitched by hand (not by machine), many, many hours of work go into each product, which is why there is a 7 to 12 week lead time.
Whoa! Wha!?!? Hold up!
We knew you were too clever to let that blow right past you, so allow us to explain…. Although your custom item will not be ready to wrap for the holidays, Brewster Belt DOES provide you with a nifty preview card (shown below) that can be given to the gift recipient. The card has a picture of the exact custom product that is “in the works”.
The gift preview card can be printed out and put into a holiday card with a note saying that their custom needlepoint item is being stitched and will be ready in a few weeks. Then, in the depth of winter, after the last Christmas cookie has been eaten and the final Hannukah candle has been extinguished, your friend/dad/aunt/brother/dog/boyfriend will receive…(ta da!) a package containing their custom needlepoint gift and it will be like Christmas all over again.
So, let’s summarize. You need a unique holiday gift. Brewster Belt Company can help. They will help you design the perfect custom needlepoint gift for [insert name of worthy gift recipient here]. You will receive a preview card to wrap up and give. Your gift will be carefully hand-stitched and mailed out not long after the holidays. The gift recipient will be thrilled and all will be well with the world.
Please note Brewster Belt can provide gift preview cards until December 19th. After that, you’re on your own or you can purchase a gift certificate, so there is hope for you last-minute shoppers. They also offer a returning customer discount, so there’s that as well.
