As we considered the appropriate staff gift to purchase, we realized that there are still several opportunities for summer weddings before the leaves begin to turn. For these occasions, we’ve selected a few gifts you might want to consider.

Ron Hinkle’s hand-blown glassware is a favorite of wedding couples. These ice screamers, which come in a variety of colors, will serve many sweet treats.

The bride and groom might enjoy Jeff Fetty’s calla lily candlesticks. These candlesticks are his original design and are made from iron, finished in natural black and range in height from 18 to 20 inches. Sold in sets of three, these candlesticks make an elegant display for the couple’s mantle or table. Add a MountainMade taper candle.

MountainMade recently received an order from our potter, Lambros. He creates functional pottery pieces in a variety of popular colors. His coffee mugs, soup cups, casseroles, bowls, etc., are certain to be enjoyed for years to come.

But if it’s Blenko you want to give, MountainMade will have a new selection by Friday. Check the website or give us a call.

That’s what lots of people seem to think. In fact, it’s such a wonderful time to get married, that you may at this very moment, be bombarded with wedding announcements.  If you are looking for the perfect springtime wedding gift, look no further than MountainMade. MountainMade makes your shopping a little easier this season.

Since I am privy to quite a bit of insider knowledge (I am in charge of our entire inventory after all), I thought I might help you out with some wedding gift ideas. Here are my top 5 favorite suggestions for your bride and groom:

1. Set of Ron Hinkle Wine Glasses. This a a perfect his and hers wedding gift. These would be great paired with a lovely bottle of wine. These wine glasses are very unique because they have a hollow stem. Ron Hinkle is one of the few artists who has the artistic skill to create stemware in this manner.

Mix and match Ron Hinkles beautiful hand crafted wine glasses. You  can create beautiful his and her style collections.

2. Blenko Water Bottles. Not only are these beautiful functional additions for the home, you are also giving a piece of American history. These Blenko Glass water bottles have been produced since the 1930s. They make a great gift and are collectible pieces of art that can be passed on from generation to generation.

Blenko Glass Water Bottles are beautiful and functional. Give a  wedding gift that is a piece of history, and maybe it will be passed on  for generations.

3. Jim & Brenda Good Cutting Boards & Marvin Wotring Paring Knife. This set makes a wonderful addition to any kitchen. I personally use my Jim and Brenda Good cutting board and the paring knife by Marvin Wotring daily. With proper use and care this is a gift that will stand the test of time.

4. Chris Cooper Wooden Salad Bowl & Allegheny Treenware Salad Tongs. Another beautiful set makes the perfect addition for the newly weds’ kitchen. These are both made from beautiful cherry wood and the quality is exceptional. I think the two pieces compliment each other perfectly.
