Valentine’s Day: Are you a lover or a hater?

Valentine’s Day stirs up a lot of mixed emotions. Approximately 50% of Americans celebrate Valentine’s Day while the other half either doesn’t celebrate the “Hallmark holiday” or actively engages in anti-Valentine’s Day activities – yes, those are a thing. So, whichever emojis…or emotions you’re feeling this Valentine’s Day, you’re probably not alone.

Feeling mixed emojis….er, emotions about Valentine’s Day?

And, as Poison reminded us: every rose has its thorn….Even people who love to celebrate Valentine’s Day can feel stressed about making plans or anxious about buying the right gift for their loved one. Brewster Belt Company has one-of-a-kind needlepoint belts and accessories for those who want to go beyond ordinary gift-giving such as this custom emoji needlepoint belt.

Last year, Americans spent approximately $20 billion – yes, that’s billion with a “B” – for Valentine’s Day. Perhaps not surprisingly, flowers top the list as the most popular gift purchased by men. With candy and greeting cards not far behind. Thirty to forty percent of both men and women also spend money on an evening out.

According to AMEX, approximately six million couples get engaged on Valentine’s Day. Six. Million. So, if your relationship is on the hot tamale train and you want to make it official, you’re in good company. Fancy a hot sauce needlepoint belt to express your collective hotness….or your love of hot sauce?

Is your relationship on the hot tamale train?

When it comes time to plan the big day, Brewster Belt Company can work with you to create custom needlepoint wedding gifts for the groomsmen, bride and groom. One-of-a-kind needlepoint belts, flasks, key fobs and ring pillows will make your wedding one in a million…or one in six million, as it were.

The Presidential Inauguration

On this 20th day of 2017, Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. It was a divisive election and some Americans are hopeful that he will make American great, whether you’re feeling like this….

…or like this…

…Brewster Belt Company has the perfect custom needlepoint accessories to help you express yourself.

For those of you feeling patriotic, we suggest an American Flag Needlepoint Wallet to safely house the fruits of our future prosperity.  If you’re still trying to process the outcome of the election, you can drown your sorrows in style with this WTF Needlepoint Flask.

And, if your dog wants in on the action, an American Flag Needlepoint Dog Collar will do just the trick.

Part I: 17 Things to Look Forward to in ’17…and the Needlepoint Belts to Match

Happy Holidays! We hope you enjoy time with friends and family during the holidays and we wish you a wonderful 2017. Looking ahead to the new year, this is part one of a two-part post about 2017 happenings with needlepoint belt and accessory pairings….because Brewster Belt Company wants you to look great while you enjoy 2017 (…and show off our endless custom design possibilities).

And now, 17 things to look forward to in 2017 (drum roll, please)….

1. The Second Avenue Subway
New Yorkers are looking forward to the opening of the first phase of the Second Avenue Subway on January 1, 2017. Considering that the project has been planned for almost a century, we’re guessing no one is betting on it. But if you’re a betting man, we’ve got a belt for you.

2. The Presidential Inauguration
Ok, maybe you’re not looking forward to it, but after an eventful campaign season and election, on January 20, 2017, Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.  Our designers have created a lot of amazing American and State Flag Needlepoint Belts.

3. The Super Bowl
Superbowl LI (that’s 51 for those of you who have forgotten your Roman numerals) will take place on February 5, 2017 at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. With a few weeks still remaining in the regular season, we have an idea who the contenders will likely be, but anything can happen…. Get a custom needlepoint football belt to support your favorite team or show your non-partisan love for the sport with our featured needlepoint football belt.

4. NFL Draft
On a related note, we raise our glasses to the Cleveland Brown fans who stood by their team this challenging year. May we suggest a needlepoint football flask to help get you through the next few games? At least you’ll probably get the first draft pick….

5. State of Nebraska Sesquicentennial
The great state of Nebraska will celebrate 150 years of statehood on March 1, 2017. Planning for its sesquicentennial celebration has been in the works since 2012, so the state should be well-prepared to celebrate like it’s 1867. Get into the spirit with a Nebraska state flag needlepoint belt.

6. Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony
On April 7, 2017, six new artists in the “Performer” category will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The inductees are: Joan Baez, Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), Journey, Pearl Jam, Tupac Shakur and Yes. And rock on with a rock and roll needlepoint belt!

7. Vacation (or Staycation)
Whether you’re planning a vacation or a staycation in 2017, we hope you fit in some R&R. Either way, you can dress the part with a vacation-themed, custom needlepoint belt. Love SCUBA? There’s a belt for that. Heading to Florida? May we suggest a flamingo needlepoint belt? Or, turn up the heat in your living room and host a beach party with tropical cocktails and a cocktail needlepoint belt to match. Mele kalikimaka.

8. Kentucky Derby
The Kentucky Derby will take place on Saturday, May 6, 2017. But it’s a long road to the Kentucky Derby and qualifying races are already taking place from now through April. If you’re planning to host or attend a Derby Party, it’s never too early to order yourself a festive horse racing belt, so you can sip your mint julep in style.

9. Summer
Much of the U.S. has been experiencing record low temps, but the days are about to start getting longer and we’re about half way to summer. Hang in there and check out our fun summer-themed needlepoint belts. Whether you summer on Nantucket or in your backyard, love fly fishing or paddling, there’s a belt for you.

Happy holidays from the folks at Brewster Belt Company and stay tuned for the next post, which will include the remaining things to look forward to in ’17…and the belts to match.

One-of-a-Kind Gifts for the Person Who Has Everything

Finding unique gifts for those difficult-to- buy-for friends and family members can be challenging and time-consuming. So, before you find yourself flipping through piles of catalogs, fighting crowds at the mall or Googling until you reach the end of the Internet, check out the custom needlepoint belts, dog collars, wallets, pillows, flasks and more at Brewster Belt Company.

Custom Needlepoint Gifts

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”.

Custom Gift Preview Card
Custom Gift Preview Card

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.

Below are some new belts they just finished stitching if you need some inspiration:
