Or you can opt for Santa and two of his reindeer, a Christmas penguin or a Christmas message. The pads are available in a wide variety of colors, including perfect holiday hues like red, blue, green, white and black.
6. Custom Horse Portrait
It’s hard to find a horse person who wouldn’t appreciate receiving a custom portrait of her horse. Artist Petr can make a beautiful custom art print from a photo, to be placed on canvas, or on a throw blanket, throw pillow, phone case, coffee mug or tote bag. Various sizes of prints are available.
7. Ribbon Rack
Equestrians are notorious for not knowing how to display their ribbons. If you have a friend whose ribbons are stuffed in a drawer or haphazardly hanging from the top of a book case, this ribbon rack featuring a Quarter Horse silhouette on each end can solve the problem. This attractive rack is 58 inches long and can hold at least a dozen ribbons.
8. Horse Jigsaw Puzzle
For the jigsaw puzzle lover who also loves horses, the “Wild and Free” puzzle features a beautiful photograph of wild horses of the Great Basin Onaqui Wild Horse Herd in Utah. The 750-piece puzzle measures 16x30.
9. Horse Wine Glass Charms
Once parties are back in vogue, these cute equine wine glass charms will come in handy. A galloping horse, a western saddle, a horseshoe, a carrot, a horsehead and a mane comb will help keep guests from losing their drinks.
10. Horse Candle
Only a horse person could appreciate the scent of this candle: horse sweat and leather. It might sound weird, but people seem to really enjoy this natural soy candle’s aroma. It comes in a mason jar, and is reportedly a favorite of barn girls everywhere.
