With the holiday season creeping up fast, many of us are starting to think about gifts for friends and family. And, for those of us who love metal-based gifts or custom gifts, plenty of fantastic options exist. Whether you're looking for a small stocking stuffer or a standout present, there are plenty of choices to make this Christmas extra special.

At our veteran-run small business in Pennsylvania, USA (learn more about us here - About Us), we specialize in creating metal gifts like key holders, keychains, and signs for your house, both indoors and outside. But we also know first-hand how difficult it can be to find the perfect stocking stuffers and gifts for everyone on your list. That's why we've compiled this blog showcasing some of our favorite and popular metal gifts for the holiday season.

Kids LOVE anything personalized, don't they? I ways always wanting something with my name on when I was growing up! Our sports and dance medal hangers are extremely popular for Christmas gifting. We have multiple styles and sports covered in our Display Your Swag collection, and any of our welcome signs can be personalized to make a very cool sign for a bedroom door by swapping the word welcome for a name. Both of our kids had these growing up!

One of our most popular themes at this time of year is the deer wildlife collection. Living and working in rural PA, we are no stranger to these beautiful creatures. In fact, the forest behind us is home to a very large herd. The deer buck & doe key rack is by far the biggest seller as it's appreciated by both wildlife lovers and hunters alike!

Consider a metal sign if you're looking for something a little more unique. Metal signs make a great statement piece in any home or office and are available in various sizes and styles. Plus, they're incredibly versatile. Choose from inspirational quotes, fun and funky designs, or even custom-made pieces.
 The monograms are especially meaningful for someone you love.

When it comes to stocking stuffers, metal gifts like our keychains and mini key racks are a great choice. Not only are they sturdy and long-lasting, but they're also incredibly versatile. Whether you're shopping for a friend, family member, teacher, or colleague, there's sure to be a perfect gift for everyone on your list, whatever your budget.  They start at $7.99 and you can ship up to 4 of them for the same low price anywhere in the USA! Don't know what theme to select? We offer monograms too!

Bigfoot keychain

We have created some cute little snowmen to add a touch of fun. At just 10 inches high they are tall enough to make their presence known and small enough not to cause a nuisance. Or perhaps you prefer our cute little gnomes. There are 5 designs that are available in 4 different colors and are perfect for anybody who has a love of gnomes and whimsy.

If you are looking for a new Christmas Tree decoration, browse our tree ornaments selection – we have many to choose from. Our themes include traditional faith options, pets and animals, Santa and snowflakes, and even the wild and whimsical gnomes, aliens and bigfoot! Like most of our products, these are in-house designs that you won't find anywhere else.

This year, we have a wishlist feature on our website; you can add any products you like to your wishlist. A really great benefit of this is you can sign into the wishlist app and access it on any device, desktop, mobile or tablet—we think that's pretty cool! And you can share it to others who need ideas on what to get you!

Why buy from us?

We aren't one to blow our trumpets, but we are genuinely proud of the products we create. We know how frustrating it is when you purchase something as a gift, and it only lasts a short period before it's wearing away and has to go in the garbage. That's not good for the environment either. We 100% promise that our products are made with galvannealed steel (a specially protected type of steel) in Pennsylvania and they are made to last for years to come—and yes, that goes for our outdoor products too.

 We are a family-based business with a small but perfectly formed team. We are committed to delivering the highest standard possible and we want you and your loved ones to enjoy our products for years to come.

Order Deadlines for Christmas Delivery

The last date to order your gifts is Monday 18th December. This date gives us time to pack your orders and ensure they are with you in time for the big day. If you need something custom made, get it into us by Dec 14. Local customers who don't need shipping can order right up to Dec 20 for a custom gift.

So why not put the coffee pot on and spend some time flicking through our website? We would love to know what you think! As always, we will be on hand to answer any questions you may have. You can hit contact here on the website, through the chat, or through email at

I have a great deal of respect and admiration for The Metal Peddler as a small and unique company. Your craftsmanship and creativity is outstanding making you a leader in your industry. Have you ever considered expanding and making Wind Chimes they are a gift for the garden. Wind chimes being either whimsical or inspirational are a great gift idea for any occasion. Using your skills and imagination you could create a great line of Wind Chimes. Almost all Florists shops carry wind chimes for any occasion especially for Bereavement. With your skills you could create wind chimes with etchings and personalized engravings. This is just a suggestion for your consideration.
