During the course of the year, I try to remember all the neat things I see, that would make great gifts, especially for us horsey folk who aren’t always the easiest to buy for.  Why is it, a new pitchfork is celebrated, but a new vaccum is loathed?  There probably isn’t enough time for that conversation… LOL


Hand-made items are often at the top of my list, and are easy to locate with the convenience of  I spotted this storefront, Erica’s Creatures one day and I love that it translates well for horse and hound lovers  She creates adorable mini animals from copper and paints them to resemble the breed in general, or with a few photos, your own critters.




Also on, you can have your favorite horse customized into personal gifts like these,




Or, for the slightly higher price range, a customized rocker to look like your favorite steed, here




Scarves are always popular, and the larger the better it seems now, I love a nice blanket scarf. has a great variety of gorgeous plaids that really suit your equestrienne, for those rare days she leaves the barn.



Finally, don’t forget horse folk often care more about our horses than we do ourselves, so it’s easy to overlook the fact that our nails are a little ragged, or our feet are probably feeling tired.  Men and women enjoy a good spa treatment.  It seems extravagant for a minute, until you have a warm lavendar neck pillow resting on your shoulders and your feet in a warm bath, then it’s the only thing you ever needed.  If you’re in the Columbus, OH area, be sure to treat their feet (or yours, make it a date!) at The W Nail Bar in the Short North.  It’s a natural nail bar for fingers and toes, and it’s by far the best I’ve visited!  Gift certificates are easily purchased on their site.


Whatever you select, make it heartfelt and add a personal note.  We may spend a lot of our time with four-legged friends, but that doesn’t mean we’ve forsaken our two-legged ones.  Winter months are a great time to catch up and cuddle up!  Happy shopping!
