With the holidays coming up (I know I'm a bit early but I tend to procrastinate so I'm trying to get a jump on things) I've been thinking about what to do, gift wise, for some people at the barn. I've come up with a few options but I'm not sure which one to go with. Maybe I will do a mix of all of them, go for the more expensive option for those that I know better (though I don't want to look like I like some people better than others). So here are my ideas:
1. I love all the fancy browbands that I see people on here making, so I was thinking about doing some pretty browbands for some people. I'm a crafty/artistic person and I have wanted to try doing some browbands. Issues with this idea are that buying the browbands could get a bit expensive, and I'd have to find out sizes/colors for everyone which might give it away. Also I'm not sure this would be a good option for those who don't have their own horse. So this one I might just do for a few people. I definitely want to try one out for Lucas and give it to my friend for Christmas.
2. I had a book of recipes for hamemade horse treats. I have no idea where it is but I'm sure the interenet has some. I could make up little packages of horse treats to give to people. Maybe I could find some nice Christmasy ones.
3. I got this idea from someone that boarded where I did back when I had my horse. I actually don't know who did it, but they went around the barn and took pictures of all the horses and put them in little plastic ornament frames. So I could do something like that. I was thinking maybe something a little nicer maybe. Since I work there I could get good field pictures of all of them. I'm not sure what to do with them after though. I thought about framing them but I tend to shy away from giving people framed pictures because they don't necessarily have a place to put it (or possibly don't want to have to find a place to put it). But something photography wise is definitely on the table. Again, not a great option for those without a horse.
So those are my horsey holiday ideas. I'd love to hear your ideas/what you do for the holidays for your barn buddies. Or if you have any comments on my ideas, post those too!
