6 Incomparable Gift Ideas For Horse LoversShawn
As they say, if you know…you know. And if someone you love is passionate about horses, then you most certainly know. You may not fully understand why they devote so much time, energy, and money to raising and caring for their horse(s), but you’ve seen how their face lights up when they talk about the subject. You’ve seen how they come alive when they hoist themselves up on the saddle and take their precious friend for a ride around the pasture. And you’ve seen the way they schedule their life in just such a way that they maximize the amount of time they can spend with their hooved companion.
For many equestrians, owning a horse is about more than having a prized possession, a satisfying hobby, or even a beloved pet. It’s about…well, who can really put it into words? At the end of the day, we suppose it’s about love – pure and simple. And if you’re friends with such a person, you know that they tend to have a one-track mind regarding their horse. It only makes sense to incorporate their love of horses into any gifts you might give them.
But how do you do that effectively? Especially if you don’t know a whole lot about horses yourself!
Well, we’re going to make things easy on you. Here are 6 of our favorite gifts for horse lovers!
6 – Horse Wood Sign
Personalization is key when buying gifts for anyone, and that concept holds when looking for the perfect present for the horse lover in your life. We adore this simple, charming wooden horse sign, which can be customized to include the recipient’s name. Tell us this wouldn’t go beautifully on the walls of a stable. Tell us it wouldn’t make the best accent for a horse lover’s bedroom. You just can’t do it! As we noted above, horse owners tend to incorporate horses into their identity, and there’s nothing closer to that identity than your name. If you want to deliver a gift that is both meaningful and powerful, this wooden sign will get you to the finish line every single time.
5 – The Perfect Horse Brush
As any horse lover will tell you, grooming takes up more of their time than riding. Most equestrians find this a pleasant chore, and they will freely spend hours grooming and brushing their horse – not simply because it needs to be done, but because they get a chance to bond with their horse. Some even find it a zen-like activity that allows them to forget about their troubles and concentrate on the slow and methodical work of the brush. It may be that the horse enjoys it every bit as much as the human! Horse owners will go through many grooming tools, so a good brush makes for an excellent gift. Mane and Tail, SleekEZ, and Wahl are some of the most respected brands in the industry, so start there when looking for a great brush.
4 – Custom Model Horse
Breyer has been crafting custom model horses for decades, and they are still going strong. Using handcrafted techniques and authentic compositional references, the company has become the go-to source for models that perfectly replicate real, live horses. These models are cherished by horse lovers, especially when they are able to find a horse that’s exactly like the one they own! Whether the horse lover on your list is an adult or a child, they will flip for one of these models. At the same time, keep in mind that several competing artists and companies are in the business these days, so you can go with something other than Breyer. Do some research, and you might even find something superior.
3 – Custom Puzzle
We don’t like to indulge in needless hyperbole here at Personalized By Kate, but we have to go ahead and say this – Custom photo puzzles are among the best gifts you can get for someone on any occasion. We’re only regretful that these puzzles weren’t around when we were younger! What better way to take a cherished photo and turn it into a meditative activity for the whole family? What better way to immortalize a family, a child, a special occasion, or even a horse! If the horse lover in your life also enjoys spending thoughtful time with a good puzzle, they’ll absolutely adore this combination of their two favorite hobbies. Simply upload a photo of the horse (with or without the owner included), and we’ll take care of the rest. Wonderful gift!
2 – Horse Christmas Ornaments
Pet owners and horse lovers have one thing in common (at least): They want to incorporate their favorite mammal into their Christmas celebrations. It usually doesn’t make much sense to invite a horse into the living room to open presents, however, so most horse owners will be happy to simply adorn the tree with an ornament that depicts the animal. If they’ve not done so already, you can be the one to put a new Christmas tradition into play. All you need is a photo of the horse in question, and you’ll find several companies willing to turn that photo into a beautiful ornament ready for the tree.
1 – Custom Canvas Prints
Canvas prints have a few advantages over traditionally-framed photos. For one thing, they simply look classier, if you ask us. There’s something modern and beautiful about the way a length of stretched canvas looks when placed against a neutral wall. For another, you don’t have any pesky glass in front of the photo, which reduces the glare and lighting refraction that can take away from the photo’s glory. If you can find a great picture of the horse in question, simply upload it to our website and we’ll turn it into a piece of art that any horse lover can cherish forever. A great gift for Christmas…or any other time of the year!
