What to get my 6yr old lesson kid?

So last week after my lesson this girl (who's been taking lessons from me for a few months) gave me a really sweet card (complete with pictures of Lacey, Kaelin, and I, it was adorable!) from her and her mom thanking me for giving her lessons and on top of that, they gave me 2 tickets to Regal Cinemas. Therefore, I'm thinking that I should get the girl a little something but I have no idea what...
I don't have a ton of money to throw around so I thought about maybe making a selection of cookies and giving those since I'm pretty good at baking...but I don't know. Would a 6 year old really like cookies?

I also have a horse breeds book that I loved as a kid her age and she evidently doesn't have any horse books, so I could give her that and some cookies, but that seems like a lot. And without the cookies I feel like it's not enough since I'd like her mom to be able to have some too...

I don't know... Ideas?

Fabio - 13 year old Arabian/Lipizzaner gelding
Hazel - 14 year old Angora goat

Atticus - 4 year old LaMancha/Alpine cross goat

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

Of course a six year old would like cookies! I would say make them some cookies and leave it at that.

How about a pink sparkly helmet cover? Girl/lesson/horse all covered there and you can usually get those pretty darn cheap!

Throw in the cookies and you are good to go!

Cookies and a hoof pick(or other cheap grooming tool). Kids love getting their own horse supplies. I got a hoof pick one Christmas from the first barn I ever rode at, and I was thrilled.

Or her own stick - they make inexpensive ones in fun colors, and I think a kid would be thrilled with that as a gift.

What is your budget? I like Cori and pt's ideas a lot! My boss always gets her employees warm socks to wear when they work. She also got me a sparkly pink, rubber curry comb and a pair of earrings one year too.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...

Maybe have a picture of her riding framed?

These are all really good ideas!

I'm hoping for something low to no cost, I could spend $5 or less...

She doesn't have her own helmet (she uses one I have on hand) so a helmet cover might make things more tricky. And her mom might feel like that was a "hint" that I wanted Kaelin to have her own helmet, which I do want (and we've talked about it) but I don't want to seem manipulative, yknow?

I love that idea of having a picture of her riding framed! I'll have to keep that in mind for next year and try to get a picture of them together! I don't have a picture right so that's, sadly, a no go for this year.
