Christmas gift ideas for my trainer

I'd like to get my trainer a gift for Christmas. I've been using her since early January this year, so it's been almost a year. She has a lot of dietary restrictions, so food goodies are out of the question, and she one of her two horses had major dietary restrictions, so food goodies for them are also out of the question. I'm terrible at gift-giving and finding really good ones for people. I don't want to just give her a gift card either, though.

I do know she's working on volume 2 of her book now. Here's her website that lists everything she's done and is doing in the area about the author. Http://www.dingosbreakfastclub.net

Any ideas at all?

I'm giving mine a pair of fuzzy reins!
And I'm giving my previous instructor a pair of breeches.

How about a gift certificate from your local feed or tack store? And a box of chocolates. Even if it's on her list of dietary restrictions she'll be able to have them on hand for others to enjoy.

Last year I gave mine a couple of lunge whips because hers broke. This year I'll probably get her a sweatshirt (she hates the cold) or maybe a mucking kit. I try to give mine stuff that she could use or that I think she'd enjoy. Maybe for yours something to do with writing, like a table for the laptop (is she has one). You could always take her to a tack store and see what she likes or something. Good luck!

Depends on your spending limits really. Custom pad (when you can chose color, monogram, etc.) is a nice present. I know SmartPack used to sell them for very reasonable price, but I can't get to their website at the moment. :(

Also if the winters are cold where you are the bit warmer would make a great (and rather cheap) present (we had a person here who sold them, I got 2 couple years ago (one for the present) and have been very happy with mine).

How about some prepaid services at a local spa or just a general gift certificate to one?

Hmm... Maybe I could find something for her book-writing stuff, but I like the bit warmer idea. I'll have to shop around. Thanks for the ideas!

How about foot/hand warmers, a couple dozen?

A bunch of us (who used the same trainer) pooled our $ for our gift to her.

We made a advent calendar and put something in each day. Each item was about $5. I know $5 does sound like enough for a gift card, but we figured anything would help. ;-D

Horse treats
Dog treats... She had 8 pooches
Hand warmers
Toe warmers
Fingerless gloves
Stocking cap
Socks
Gift card to her fav grocery store
Gift card to tack place
Gift card to restaurant
Gift card to beauty shop
Gift card to dog groomer
Gift card to vet

... She loved it!

I gave my trainer a $50 tip last year with a nice card. I think tips are appropriate for people with whom you have a professional relationship.
