Being in my "early 50's" I can tell you some of my favorite gifts I have received. The book "The $700 Pony" I laughed outloud through the whole book. Someone gave me a little cowboy hat that is a refillable air freshener for my car, for some reason I love it. I always like getting riding socks and gloves. My family gave me a fleece fly spray mitt for Christmas, I use it all the time. Is there a training DVD or horse movie they want? That would be a little more spendy. I always wish people would give me DVD's of the horses at the Olympics and stuff because it is so much fun to watch but they are also expensive. and personally I like horse notepads for grocery lists etc.
