Christmas (Holiday) Gift for BO

I am the only boarder at my barn and I was wondering what I could get my BO for Christmas. She lives on the property with her husband and two daughters who are around my age (23). They have five horses their and mine makes six. It would just be me buying it since I am the only boarder there. I am sure my parents will pitch in a little bit of money because they love our BO. So I was wondering what everyone gets their BO if they get them anything.

I was also going to make little stockings for all of the horses stalls with their names on them in glitter paint when it gets closer to the Holidays. I am going to make horse cookies then for the horses. Any other ideas?

Thanks!!

I think you doing stockings and making cookies is plenty but if you wanted to do something else I would keep it inexpensive. Maybe a bottle of wine? If she likes wine. Or give her ba coupon for you to do some chores to give her a break.

Well she hired help that do pretty much everything around the barn so the coupon thing wouldnt work. I guess if the cookies and what not are enough then that's good.

I would be more inclined to get the hired help something. Like maybe a 10.00 gift certificate for a place they eat lunch. They usually don't make much money for doing barn chores and they are in charge of your horse.

At our old barn we got the hired help something because they were all great. My new barn is all boarder maintained and there is no hired help. I was also just thinking of doing something for each horse.

The gift that can almost never go wrong for a horse person is gloves. I'm forever losing mine and I wear gloves 24/7 in the winter. Its a cheap gift and always appreciated. There are a lot of things you can do with customization that make great gifts too like coffee mugs with her horse's picture... or a "Worlds best barn owner" hat or something like that. Hope that helps!

I was also thinking a hat would be a nice gift. If they have a barn name you could get it embroidered on the hat or perhaps on a shirt.
