The gift of custom stained glass.

The gift of custom stained glass.

Have you ever considered giving a stained glass gift? There are so many occasions in modern life that require gift giving. And so many people who struggle to find something fabulous, something personalized, something their recipient will truly appreciate. After all, we really all have so much stuff. Do we really need more stuff?

But a stained glass gift is different. It’s fantastic for that young couple’s first home. It’s amazing as a housewarming gift. First of all, it can be given in a variety of different ways. If you want to give a gift to someone whose tastes you don’t really know, that could be a big stumbling block. But you could give a gift card for a stained glass window, and then your recipient could have the fun of meeting with one of our talented Ft Collins designers and collaborating on the exact style, pattern and colors they want.

Clients who have done this type of stained glass gift have reported that their loved ones on the receiving end have been absolutely thrilled.

What about the gift of antique stained glass? This is not a custom product, obviously, but we have a stunning selection of antique stained glass windows imported from Scotland. Each one has been lovingly restored and shined up. When it comes to giving a stained glass gift, these are simply spectacular. And because they will not be installed into a window but rather hung, they can fit in anyone’s home. In any room.

A stained glass gift can be a custom window, an insert for a door such as the front door, the patio door, an inside door, or even kitchen cabinet doors. Or it can be a hanging panel, a family crest, or even a backdrop for that well-loved bar your friends had installed in the basement.

If you are imagining stained glass as the vividly colored windows you’ve seen in churches, and you don’t think a stained glass gift like that might match in anyone’s home, consider colorless stained glass. Sometimes called leaded stained glass, this is made with a combination of clear, frosted, or beveled glass and will match any room’s décor.
