We are just a few weeks away from Christmas and there on that gifts list of yours resides several horse afflicted/addicted adults. What are some of the things that they could cherish long term? What are some things that might help save their life in a tough spot? This list will help you to think of things that they can appreciate and cherish for years to come.

Cell Phone Case
Most people in today’s society own cell phones. People who are involved in horses like all people want to protect their phones from life’s dangers. Smart Phones are not a small investment. Protecting these devices in stables including waterproofing them can save someone you love large replacement bills. In staying under $20 you can actually go two directions at once. All horsemen are going to have a love for any horse themed case for their cell phone. A great source of various horse themed cases under $10 is a seller on Amazon named Graphic4You. They have many design styles for different phones along with many nice horse designs. Another great seller on Amazon stocking lots of horse themed cell phone styles and cases is AOFFLY. The Horse person in your life is sure to love a personalized cell phone case. It’s easy and inexpensive to add a waterproofing sleeve or case. Just hop on over to JOTO and grab one of their Universal fit cases to add to that case gift.

Cell Phone Carrier
We are currently on a cell phone thread here with thoughts of pretty and waterproof. Adding to that theme I would also urge friends of horse riders to think of their safety. When riding out alone there is only one way for downed riders to contact emergency crews. That cell phone can mean the difference between life and death for both horse and rider. Many times riders make the mistake of putting the cell phone into a tack sack or saddle bag. When they get dumped off and injured on the trail, the cell phone goes galloping off with the horse leaving the rider stranded with no communications. Thinking of your loved ones consider getting the riders in your life a cell phone carrier that straps directly on their bodies like the one at State Line Tack called the Riders Phone Case. It comes in several different colors including neon eye catching colors. The strap on this case is big enough to strap to an arm or an ankle. Please if you can, enable the horse rider in your life to call for help when needed. This could be a lifesaving gift.

Head and Ear Warmer
While thinking winter time riding for your horse person you can think in the direction of under helmet and ear insulation. Helmets tend to stay as cold as the air around them except for the padding against the rider’s head. There are some decent ear warmers out there but entire head and ears warmed sounds better in the winter. Using just ear muffs leaves the top of the head cold. There is a great cross over product available from Cat-Ears. Originally designed for bicycling, this head and ear warmer also reduces wind and wind noise. Available in 6 different colors to match any riding attire just put it on before putting a helmet on. Horse riders can always appreciate warmth while out riding in cold weather.

Horse Themed Christmas Cards
One of the things that some of your horse friends will not want you to know is how difficult it is to find horse themed Christmas Cards. As a horseperson myself, I have spent many hours in department and super stores looking through rows and rows of boxed cards searching for a perfect verse on the inside with some sort of horse on the outside. Horse themed cards take much time and effort to find. Help your horse friends out this year with a gift of horse themed cards. These can be found in several places like Horseloverz.com in their giftcards section or do a search under all categories in Amazon.com specifying Horse Christmas Cards. There are many options of 18 card gift sets for under $20.

Horse Themed Calendar
Horse people also love horse themed calendars. We can’t help ourselves that way. Each month comes with a new beautiful horse surprise. There are monthly calendars like Lesley Harrison - The Spirit of Horses Wall Calendar (2016) or weekly planners like the Horse Savvy 2016 SoftcoverWeekly Planner by Savvy Systems for the busy horse professional. There are even daily tear off calendars like the TurnerHorses 2016 Photo Daily Boxed with a different horse picture for every day of the year. Keeping track of what’s going on with appointments and dates is something that everyone needs to do. Doing it horse style will endear you daily to the horse person in your life.

Bracelet with Horse Themed Clasp
Horse people are generally not big on jewelry trinkets. Barn life is hard on the finer things in life. We drown watches, horse’s lips like to wander to ear rings and fingers can get jammed up in a fall making cutting off rings a necessary evil. It’s always difficult to buy a horse person jewelry. We feel like we cannot wear such things to the barn for fear of harm in so many ways most of us only tuck a necklace into our shirts never wearing ear rings and such. Wearing shiny dangly things is just too tempting to curious horses. The one cute thing I found in my search for trinkets under $20 is a cutebracelet that is being stocked at State Line Tack. I could see myself wearing this in places other than the barn. The clasp is just as horsey themed as the saying.

Horse Pillow or Blanket
Horse people love horse minded sayings and house hold goods. Many of my favorite gifts hang on my walls, sit on my couch, occupy space in my cabinets or sit near my feet. This could be something as simple as a poster or as complex as an embroidered horse thought. We are constantly reminded of our loved ones through permanent things. One of my favorite gifts from an old now deceased friend is a horse shoe towel hanger that lives over my toilet of all places. His handiwork reminds me of the time and effort he put into crafting that custom made thing. He has been gone now for nearly 4 years. The iron of the towel bar will live on. Consider a horse thought like the LifeWithout Horses Pillow or a pretty polar fleece horse throw like the RunningHorse Blanket where the horse person in your life will think about your gift with every use.

Breyer Horse Ornament
Horse people are generally very giving and feel very blessed at Christmas time. One last thought on permanent gifts. One of my most cherished gifts of all times came from a friend of mine that passed in 2005. In 2001 she sent me a Christmas Care package that contained a very special gift. Her special gift that year and in subsequent years until she passed was a Breyer Horse ornament for my Christmas tree. Many like me grew up with Breyer Horses in their childhood. Each year Breyer Horses comes out with a couple of different ornaments like the BreyerCantana Carousel Holiday Ornament 2014 and the Breyer2010 Golden Memories Treasure Box Ornament. Year after year can be a tradition with this gift to a horse person. I only have 3 from my departed best friend. Every year they are hung with much care on my tree. Looking at them and placing them with love on my tree allows me to remember those long lost times with my dear friend. She knowingly and lovingly selected them just for me, her horse sister.

Be that person who is mindful of not only your budget but who also has understanding of the horse person in your life. Chocolates are nice but finite. There are many things that are useful to horse friends for under $20. What will YOUR cherished gift be to your horse friend?
