Shopping for your spouse or significant other can be daunting — especially when they have a hobby you may not be familiar with! Every Christmas I struggle to find the PERFECT gift for my non-horsey husband Wayne, but I can only imagine how difficult it is for him to find horsey gifts for me. Thankfully, Horse Nation is here to help you take the stress out of Christmas shopping this year and find the perfect equestrian themed gift for your other half.
I ADORE this personalized horse shoe décor from Blacksmith Creations on Etsy. Not only is the craftsmanship impeccable, but the personalized touch really just pushes this over the edge. This is perfect for your SO’s desk or bedside table and will always remind them of two things: how much you care about them and your support for their passion! Blacksmith Creations guarantees delivery in 4 weeks, but they do mention on their shop that if you wish to have your order sooner to please just contact them to see if they can accommodate. If not, they offer a Plan B: a photo of their custom made gift you can give your special someone while theirs is being made. Starting at $78.00 this completely customizable creation is a timeless gift your horse lover will always cherish.
For the artsy horse lover
Anyone who knows me knows that almost every inch of my house is crammed with equestrian themed décor. If your special someone rides or enjoys English competitions, then take a look at this beautiful set of three prints from Fab Vintage Posters on Etsy. I love the artsy design of these posters and the fact that there are so many size/price options when ordering. You even have the option to order them on canvas if you wish! Starting at $33.16, you can fit this gift idea into almost any budget.
A way to display their love
As equestrians, we put a lot of time and money into our hobbies and for those of us who compete, there is no better feeling than finding the best way to display our hard earned ribbons. Check out these awesome ribbon racks made by Showoff Ribbon Racks! There are stall front options, wall hangers, and more. For $60 you can select a ribbon rack for horse lovers of all kinds. Their wide variety of choices gives you the ability to select a ribbon that displays the discipline or breed that the person you are shopping for adores. I love this awesome ribbon rack for Saddlebred lovers!
For the Discerning Gentleman
If my husband rode horses, he would have this handsome cufflink and tie clip set in his possession — but alas, he does not. That doesn’t mean your handsome horseman can’t be stylish this awards banquet season. Skeltons Treasures on Etsy has tons of equestrian themed options for wonderfully affordable options. This set featured here retails at $42.50 and would look snazzy on any guy. Perfect for tucking into a stocking or being the present that pops!
Of course the options for gift giving are unlimited; these are just a few suggestions to get you started on your hunt for the perfect pony-themed present. Just the fact that you put thought and effort into finding a gift that shows your love for your spouse/significant other and your appreciation for their passion will no doubt put a smile on their face!
