Award ideas needed

I am looking for ideas on a gift for the high point of each division at a show. I need to keep it in the 20.00 range and need a qty of 5. Things I have seen are

picture frames (The style was a little garish for everyone to like espially a man)
A soft sided can cooler with the show embroidered on it.
A flat lead rope with the show embroider on it.

It needs to be generic for both man or woman.

I had to arrange this once for our riding club's volunteer awards. I took the easy way out & got gift certificates from the local feedstore which was also a sponsor.

You could do Dover/Smartpak/Schneider's/etc. gift cards since they're not local.

Check out Brandt Blanket Company on Facebook. They can do several items in that price range.

I like trophys as high points and really good ribbons, The kind that go around the horses neck.
Most people have tons of little coolers and stuff like that.
A gift cert for $20, I wouldn't be that excited about, now $100 would be different.

Because Pilgrim and I might just win one of your high points.

I was just on line looking at grooming totes, garment bags, and thinking something on that order custom embroidered. SSShhhh don't tell any one. It's a secret.

My daughter won one of those outdoor folding chairs that fit in a bag with the show name on it and Champion. It's awesome cause we use it all the time. Not sure the price but maybe you can go with those cushions you use on bleachers instead of a whole chair.

The cost of embroidering can eat up your budget. How about gift certificate from one of the common fast food joints that is good anywhere?
