Handmade Holidays at Letterworth
There's no better time than the holidays to share good cheer with gifts as unique as those who receive them
At Letterworth, the joy of the holiday season has always been about sharing what we call “gifts from the heart,” those unique and special finds that are perfectly suited to their recipients. They are gifts that represent not only tradition but also time: the time invested by an artisan to create something that is as much a part him or herself as the person who receives it; the time spent selecting just the right gift for someone dear; the time that inevitably passes as thoughtful gifts are used and enjoyed, month after month or year after year, hopefully accompanied by fond memories of their receipt.
When selecting holiday items for a retail shop, it is relatively easy these days to attend a vendor gift show or place a wholesale order online with a few clicks of the mouse, often for pre-made items that are likely mass-produced in a factory overseas. At Letterworth we have made the conscious decision to offer handmade items for the holidays, crafted here in the United States, and using our own designs and artwork. We pride ourselves on our unique and creative items as well as the selection of the quality materials used to make them. Nearly all of the designs for our ornaments, gift wrap, and stationery products are developed well over a year prior to their holiday debuts, and some have been so popular on our other venues in previous years that we have offered them again based on client requests. While this means that our handcrafted items are often limited in supply, we believe that this reinforces how truly special and one-of-a-kind they are, not only in terms of their creation, but also the experience provided to those who give and receive them.
We invite you to browse our selection of holiday ornaments, wrapping paper, and gift tags on our website. It will be no surprise to anyone who knows our work that Chinoiserie, ginger jars, and blue and white feature prominently, as we believe these stylish elements are always in season! If you see something you like that is currently sold out, please feel free to contact us. In some instances, we may be able to make additional items available through a custom order.
In closing, we wish all of our clients and their families a joyous holiday season filled with love, kindness, and most of all, peace. We are profoundly grateful for your support of our creative small business and consider your patronage one of our blessings, not only during the holidays but throughout the year.
