Gift ideas for a Cowboy?

Hey all!
Im asking around for some gift ideas for a cowboy, I got him from our barn's annual Secret Santa celebration- He's my reining trainer so I thought it was awesome! But on the way home I realized that I wasn't sure what he would like! To make matters worse he's the Manager at the local Boot Barn- where I've always gotten my horsey gifts, So now I have to think out of the box to get a nice gift for a cowboy in his late 20s, but I don't want to spend big bucks on pair of cowboy boots I was thinking maybe something funny or practical like a silver money clip w/ his initials or a manni-petti ( lol, he's straight, so he might not like that to much)? Any ideas?
P.s. I was just thinking about this as I was going to sleep- so replies from me will come with the rising sun!

Can't go wrong with food or a bottle of his favorite booze!

or a nice knife.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Cowchick has done this before! Haha! I bet he'd be happy with a card, especially if you made it, and maybe an offer to clean out his truck. Guys are pretty simple. Maybe if there is a certain monetary value attached to a "secret Santa" maybe a prepaid detailing of his truck? If he drives a beater though, never mind that'd be even funnier and he'd likely laugh his tail off! And get it done!

Great idea! He's a die hard beer guy, but he's always working or riding, so he has a can of Red Bull everywhere he goes, So a case of that to go in with the gift would probably make him get all sentimental lol!

He does love his truck! Here in town we do have a place that does the works( cleans out your car, vacuums and washes the interior, washes and details the outside) so I could get a gift card from there, OR get all the girls from the barn come out for a truck and trailer wash day!

What more could a cowboy want than a bunch of girls washing his truck in wet.... While he drinks his booze!

^^^ LOL!

Phly, your right, I have done Christmas shopping for cowboys, they are pretty easy to please!
Too bad, he already has a bunch of knives, that was a great idea too.

A person usually wouldn't have a whole collection of knives unless they really like knives. If you could find one that is unique or special, that would be a great gift.
