When it comes to gifting ideas, door knockers might not be top of most people’s lists. But for an unexpected, useful, and original present, we think they offer a thoughtful and imaginative option. Our exceptional brass door knocker and handle designs have something to perfectly reflect every recipient’s personality, so read on for some outside-the-box gifting ideas.
What Does the Door Knocker Symbolise?
Your door knocker oversees the threshold to your home, symbolising protection and blessings for all those who dwell there. The choice of design holds particular significance. Traditional lion door knockers embody bravery and strength, while medieval gargoyles were charged with warding off evil spirits. Our blog all about door knockers has more about the particular meanings of many more classic door knocker designs.
Of course, at Brass Bee, our flagship door knocker design is the bumble bee, representative of prosperity, vitality, and kinship. Our sweet bumblebee keyrings make ideal little gifts or stocking fillers, conferring those industrious little guys’ blessings to the lucky recipient.
How to Choose a Door Knocker as a Gift
If you’re struggling to make a selection, our gift cards are a great place to start. They come in a range of values, and the receiver can choose from our full range of designs. We have everything they need to bring some character to their door furnishings, as well as fixtures and fittings for around the home. From house numbers to towel rails to coat hooks, they’ll be spoilt for choice!
A more significant present, our door knocker and keyring gift set bundles one of our adorable bumblebee keyrings together with your choice of door knocker. With designs ranging from paw prints for those animal lovers in your life to hearts for any romance lovers, as well as our classic brass bees, there’s something for everyone. Available in a range of metal finishes to suit every home, each is cast in solid brass and impeccably finished. Even better, when purchased together you can save 15% compared to buying a door knocker and keyring individually.
If you’re sure of their tastes or they already have a door knocker in place, why not treat that special someone to some matching drawer and cabinet knobs? Also cast in solid brass, we make a range of drawer knobs to correspond to our door knocker designs, in complementary finishes.
These rose gold drawer knobs are miniature versions of the same copyrighted dragonfly design as our full-size dragonfly door knockers, allowing for perfect cohesion throughout the home. Dragonflies have long been held to represent adaptability and self-actualisation, and the romantically modern rose gold finish highlights their every detail perfectly.
No matter how tricky they are to buy for, we’re sure you can find something to put a smile on anyone’s face with a gift chosen from Brass Bee. And if you check out the savings available on a range of products in our outlet store, you might find a little something for yourself, too!
