Christmas Gift Ideas???

So my one of my bestfriends is getting her very first horse this christmas. I am stumped as to what to get her for christmas.

I was thinking about a "horse bucket" like a gift basket and putting grooming supplies and little whatnots that she could use for her horse.

So if any of yall have better ideas please tell me. I really really appreciate it!

i think you nailed it! that's what I would do....either that or a gift card to the local farm store, but it's not as personal as the bucket. Wow if someone gave me a gift bucket right now, i would be so happy, i wouldn't care if i already had 5 brushes, 2 bottles of shampoo, 2 bags of ties, 5 halter, ect lol horsey stuff is so much fun!

I think your idea is great! I'm not real artsy so if it were me I'd probably fill up a big bucket or caddy with stuff (example Browsing KBC International Inc.- Tack Caddy Box) and then wrap it in some sort of cellophane stuff and decorate that with ribbon and stickers maybe. It'd be fun!

Now I wanna make one!

The bucket's a good idea! Other ideas are polos with her favourite print (sponge bob? plaid? teddy bears? I'm not here to judge lol), a personalized license plate for the front of her car if she drives - with a picture of her horse and its name, an educational book (maybe she wants to learn more about something?), a sign for her horse's stall, a service or a whole book of them (stall cleaning, clipping, feed tub washing, tack cleaning...)

If you go to the tack shop you'll see all kinds of ideas forming in your head! I am easily inspired :)

What about a leather halter with her horse's name engraved in a nameplate?
