Gifts for Grooms & Groomsmen They’ll Actually Use

According to wedding tradition, the groom typically gives his bride-to-be a gift the day before or day of the wedding. Today, many grooms still carry on this tradition and a growing number of brides have started surprising their husbands-to-be with sentimental, pre-wedding gifts…But, it can be hard to find a gift that is meaningful, personal and practical.

Lynsay, a bride in Virginia, worked with Brewster Belt Company to create this adorable (uhem, manly) personalized wedding gift for her “best catch.” The custom, hand-stitched needlepoint fly fishing flask was well-received by her groom, but she’s not fishing for any complements (ba-dum-dum).

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.
