Finding just the right horse gift for your sweetheart can be a challenge. So I’ve put together some gift ideas for him, for her, and for both. Whether your looking for more of a traditional horse lover gift or a really personalized, creative gift idea for your horse lovin’ sweetheart, I believe you’ll find enough horse gift ideas on this page to get those creative juices flowing.
Let’s jump right in and start with some horse gifts that would work for either him or her. I’m going to challenge you to get pretty creative for some of these gift ideas. Ready to get started? We’re going to start with a horse lover gift that’s both creative and really personal.
Idea for Horse Gift: a photo gift. We’re going to get some help from Shutterfly.com for this idea. For this creative gift idea, you’ll need a digital camera. Don’t have one? Borrow one. Chances are you know someone who does have one. Better yet, borrow them too. You just may need some help to get the picture(s) that you need.
Okay, so you’ve got the use of a digital camera. Now you need to decide on what kind of picture gift you want to create. For a Digital Photo T-Shirt, I would suggest a picture of you with your horse fan’s favorite horse. Shutterfly.com is a terrific place to have this gift made because they allow you to add a caption to your t-shirt. Now here’s where you need to get creative. If the you and your sweetheart’s horse are both male, you could use something like: “My Two Favorite Guys” (or Studs if the horse is a stallion.) If both female, then “My Two Best Gals!” would work great.
If the genders are different, mix it up a little: “My Favorite Guy and My Best Buddy!” Or how about “My Two Best Friends!” Or even something like “Sure Glad I Don’t Have To Choose Between Them!” or “I’ve Got It All!” Personally, I tend to be a bit on the corny/sappy side when it comes to things like this. You need to come up with the caption that works for you and your horse lovin’ sweetie.
Are you feeling really creative? Let’s go the extra mile on this one and add a romantic touch. Get yourself some red or gold or silver sparkly or puffy fabric paint, draw a heart around the photo on the t-shirt and viola, the perfect sweetheart horse gift! I told you I was on the corny/sappy side, didn’t I? It just adds a bit of romantic flair to your gift that shows your sweetheart just how special he or she is to you.
Do you like the idea of a photo gift but not sure about a t-shirt? Grab a digital photo of you and your sweetheart and one of your sweetie and his or her horse and have a Digital Photo Mug (11 oz. white) or two made for a fantastic horse gift. Then your horse crazy sweetie can start the day off thinking about the important things in life.
Want a horse gift that’s a little more substantial but still personal and creative? Have a digital photo taken of you and your recipient’s horse and have it immortalized on canvas with a 20×30 Canvas Print from Shutterfly.com. Better yet, for a gift that is really one-of-a-kind, send that photo (digital or traditional) to an artist specializing in turning photos into portrait treasues. I recommend either Jerry Schuster or Nicholas Beall as both do beautiful work. To check out Jerry Schuster’s work, Click Here to go to Portraitking. For a look at what Nicholas Beall offers, click on Melanie Phillips & Nicholas Beall Horse & Pet Portrait Gift Vouchers. Either of these artists could create a lasting treasure for your horse enthusiast sweetheart.
