Gift ideas for winter weddings

Going to a wedding this winter or spring? Looking for a meaningful, memorable gift for the newlyweds?

Whether or not a couple has an official registry, it's wonderful to give something unique—something personal, something that "lights" their way, something they'll cherish for the rest of their lives. 

At Danforth Pewter, you'll find a beautiful selection of handcrafted wedding gifts that are just as special as the newlyweds. Here are five gift ideas that will celebrate their special day, and commemorate it for years to come.

1. Picture frames to capture moments

Hold the most special memories in a safe and beautiful place: a handcrafted picture frame. Each frame is handcrafted and hand-painted, complementing your photos with exquisite yet detail.

2. Oil lamps to "light the way"

Our oil lamps add the perfect ambience to any room, indoors or outdoors. They're beautiful as a centerpiece for the dining room table, or providing accent light to a reading room, next to a fire place, or beside the Christmas tree. Many people use them to create peaceful winter rituals as the nights start to creep into day. Also, they reliably provide light and warmth during a power outage, creating a sense of peace, safety, and beauty during a time of uncertainty.

"We used the Lodge Oil Lamp at our wedding to replace the traditional unity candle. It worked out great and now we can light it on every anniversary! Highly recommend!" ​—Maylene


3. Ornaments to commemorate the day all year round

Ornaments aren't just for the Christmas tree! These beauties serve as a year-round celebration of love. Many people begin a new chapter of their lives by starting a collection, adding one ornament each year on their anniverary or at Christmas. Our handcrafted ornaments jazz up any bookshelf, window, houseplant, or bulletin board. 

They also serve wonderfully as the "bow" on top of a wrapped gift, so especially if you're giving a gift from the couple's registry, an ornament can make a lovely surprise.

4. Barware to toast the years ahead

A chilled wine, a barrel-aged whiskey, a mocktail, a craft beer—whatever you're sipping, it goes perfectly in pewter. Our barware will add a magical practicality to any home bar. It also makes a wonderful gift for the bridal party or parents-in-law. Most can be personalized with an engraving or monogram.

5. Jewelry & accesories to accent the special day

Our thoughtfully designed, always-in-fashion jewelry makes a great gift for the wedding party as well as the happy couple...and it can also become a staple in your "wedding wardrobe." Attending any formal affair is more fun when you're excited about what you're wearing, so make sure to find accessories that reflect your unique style.
