Help!!! I Need Gift Ideas!?

So as the 4-H year is coming to a close, that means there is an awards banquet coming up. Since I am president of my club I want to get gifts for everyone which will be pretty easy.. I'm thinking buckets, leadropes, brushes, etc. But I also want to get something for our club leaders. Neither of them ride, they just have daughters that ride. I was thinking a picture frame that everyone could sign and put a group picture of our club in it, but I kind of want to do something nicer. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!!! :)

One thing I've learned working with horses: You can FORCE a horse to do something on a tight rein and he might do what you ask or you can TEACH a horse to do something on a loose rein and he will do it willingly with his heart.

I think the picture frame idea is great. Your leaders will love it.

You think so? I don't want them to be like "what is this?!"

I don't think that will be their reaction. When I was in 4H our leaders' gifts were always something similar. They tend to appreciate gifts with a personal touch more than something that was just bought from the store.

I agree with galegirl about the picture frame, but maybe also a gift card or something? I don't know what your budget is but I think a framed picture of everyone in your club and a gift card some where would be great.

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.
