Christmas gifts for my wife?

Just wanted thoughts if I just ordered the right thing. I'm 67, wife 65. Both love horses, she especially Morgan. Her Dad (rip) was Cherokee. She prefers silver and pewter over gold. We don't buy expensive gifts...it's the thought that counts.
I just came across this site HorseLadyGifts.
Wondering if I did the right thing?
Thanks...

Does she wear a lot of bracelets? What kind? To be honest those look a little bulky( I have small wrists). Just thinking, I got a similar necklace and I wear it quite a bit... maybe a nice chain with it? I had to replace my chain a few times as it got hung on the horn...

Looks good though!

Thanks. She's 5'10", large wrists. She's not all that heavy (she'd kill me if I said she was).

They're lovely, but it's hard to say when you don't know the person. Though I have to say that anytime anyone gives me ANYTHING with a horse on it, I'm happy!

Thanks so much! She's always appreciated gifts from me even after 47 years, but it's really difficult imho for a guy picking out something for a girl, especially clothes! I think girls are better at buying something for a guy.

@Fuddyduddy1952 I think the secret to buying clothes for a woman is to buy something you think she might like, but buy it like two sizes too small. Then you're like, "But you are so thin that I thought this would be a perfect fit!" Then she can go back and exchange it for something she actually wants, LOL.

At least that's something I think would work. If you're buying something for someone who is super skinny like I am, probably not so much.
